Battle of the Planets


Kids TV eh? Well, since most of the kid tv in my day was made up of monochrome serial adventures (champion the wonder horse, zorro, king of the rocket men, flash gordon, etc) I've been feeling pretty old and left out. The one I remembered we had Battle Of The Planets. With it's gender Indeterminate villain (actually him/her and Tripitaka from Monkey - a male character played by a girl - confused the hell out of me as a youngster).
Anyhue here's a drawing (well photo of a drawing as I can't get near my scanner - though I'll update it when I do) of the hero Mark.

I will never forget episode 17: "A whale joins G-Force". Good stuff, PJ.

I remember watching this and loving it but can't remember a single episode. Apparently they are making a CGI movie, Gatchmen, with BotP was based on.

I like the pic.

I only know this from the Battle of the Planets vs Thundercats and some Alex Ross covers. Nice piece.

Awww Yeah! I LOVE this, PJ! I'm all over them chunky pencil lines. And what a great cartoon too. Sometimes simple and sketchy wins the day, and this be that day. My fave of yours thus far. Minty!
