Yes, it's time for another cartoon based on some toys from the 1980s! How this particular property got the go-ahead is beyond me. I have some vague, fond memories of "Inhumanoids" from when I was a youngster, and pounced on this DVD when I found out how cheaply it could be bought. All I can say is, I must've done some serious repression of memories, because this cartoon is far, far worse than I remember. It would certainly never get made today, nor would the toys.

Rich git Blackthorne Shore is using his family fortune to go exploring and excavating for mysterious and sinister reasons. During a deep-drilling operation, his team breaks through an underground chamber and unleashes the first of a host of colossal monsters called the Inhumanoids. All Hell breaks loose. Literally.

Tendril (The Destroyer) is a rampaging Lovecraftian nightmare that looks like a cross between the 1980s Fly, Cthulhu, and a salad. D. Compose (The Despoiler), is an undead dinosaurian ogre who can manufacture armies of undead minions with but an infectious touch of his rotting claws. Metlar (The Dark Underlord) is a molten-metal spewing, fiery, horned abomination and de facto leader of the Inhumanoids. Gagoyle (The Devourer) is a stupid, nigh-unstoppable, cyclopean, all-consuming horror so revolting he will make you gag. Sslither (The Dominator) was formerly the most powerful Inhumanoid, before his former slave, Metlar, overthrew him.

The ancient enemies of the Inhumanoids rally to fight the giant menaces again. The Granites (rock-men), Redwoods (tree-men), and Magnokor (a bi-polar character if there ever was one) must join forces with Earth Corps, a group of government-funded scientists who study the Earth.

Pretty much everyone who lived through the 1980's (and many of those who came later) recall the likes of Transformers, Thundercats, He-Man and G.I Joe such was their impact, but in a period which was pretty much like the Wild West for toy producers - not satisfied with simply pimping an action figure to kids, and instead wanting to sell them an entire lifestyle that included lunch boxes, wall paper, computer games, pajamas and comic books amongst other merchandise - you would be forgiven for having never heard of the 'Inhumanoids'.

Produced by Sunbow and Marvel comics, with animation provided by Japanese company Toei Animation (Dragon Ball Z, Transformers etc), 'Inhumanoids' was one of the lesser known of the many toy franchises to appear in toy shops during the 80's, and didnt enjoy anywhere near the success or popularity of its more famous competitors like the Transformers, having a somewhat limited toy range and a comic series that lasted all of four issues. What Inhumanoids did have however was a truely excellent (although short lived) animated series - all thirteen episodes of which are collected on this DVD.

The series follows the adventures of a team of scientists known as 'Earth Corps' - adventurer Herc Armstrong, engineer Derek Bright, archaeologist Edward 'Auger' Auguter, and chemist Jonathon M Slattery, who find themselves thrown into a conspiracy by power hungry industrialist Blackthorn Shore to release (and control) a number of mythological subterranen monsters called the 'Inhumanoids', including Tendril (a creature with vine-like limbs and the ability to regenerate and change size), D'compose (a horrific skeletal monster with the ability to turn living creatures into undead slaves with a mere touch), and their leader Meltar (able to spit balls of flaming lava).

If you like G.I. Joe, Transformers, Visionaries, Pryde of the X-Men and Jem, BUY THIS BOXSET. Like the shows mentioned above, this short lived series was from the people at Marvel Productions and Sunbow Entertainment. Originally airing in the US in 1986, the series was about a group of hi-tech scientists trying to stop giant monsters from destroying the Earth. The series had great storytelling, high quality animation and superb voice acting. Don't pass this GEM up. You have to experience it.
