Do you remember this gang? A rather interesting cartoon with masks that transformed people’s powers. Like an addiction to use for them? Instead of just one important person going after the evil forces. In this cartoon both of the sides have many with different abilities.
75 Xtravaganza Episodes of pure Fun turned Weekend with M.A.S.K. to something Special
A total of 75 syndicated episodes of M.A.S.K. were broadcast from 1985 to 1986. One of the many cartoons produced during the 1980s as a vehicle for toy merchandising.
M.A.S.K. is an acronym for the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, which was a hybrid of popular era cartoons such as G.I. Joe and The Transformers. It featured a special task force featuring an array of characters, led by Matt Trakker, with transforming vehicles engaged in an ongoing battle against the criminal organization V.E.N.O.M.
The bad guy’s name is V.E.N.O.M. which stands for the Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem, with an emphasis on super-powered helmets called masks worn by the characters on the show.
Sky Channel Changed Kids Minds in Europe
I watched this cartoon series a lot on Sky Channel! The plot, music and all packed together made M.A.S.K. to an awesome show to watch either on Fun Factory at the weekends or on D.J. Kat show.
All of the kids shows had daily episodes of M.A.S.K. showing and so we started our asking of our parents to get the toys madness. I think most of my classmates got the toys from the cartoon as I remember. The red car had doors that could open… it was a wow factor. Also, the green helicopter dude was also fun.
M.A.S.K. is remembered by me and I know many remember this quality kid shows. Even though it was made for promoting the toys. This show had a really good vibe to it. Also at the end of the show, they had to have a 1-2 minute segment saying something about how bad violence is.
I never forget this cartoon. I even bought it on DVD. Just to have it and eventually show it to my son later when he gets older.
