Lately, I’ve rediscovered my love for the Biker Mice — from the 90s cartoon Biker Mice from Mars. Imagine the surge of nostalgic joy that came over me when I inadvertently bumped into an episode on Youtube! As far as I know, the broadcast of the series here in Canada was terminated while the final season was being aired, so I never did get to see the end of the show. Until now. On youtube in a shitty resolution, but I'm still happy to have been able to watch all three parts of Once Upon A Time on Mars after all these years.
As for the rest of the series, there aren't that many episodes available on Youtube. And after a quick search I discovered only the first season was released on DVD in the original English dialog. Big disappointment. Like many fans, I'm very much willing to buy a complete DVD box set of the entire series and can't believe there isn't one available. Animated shows like this one were a part of my childhood and it'd be nice to have as a collectors item.
Luckily, I still own VHS recordings of most of the series (not to mention plenty more 90s cartoons) stashed in my basement somewhere. I'm sure I have the majority of season one and two and maybe even quite a few of season three. I'm definitely going to dig those out but I still would've preferred a DVD set. I can't seem to find torrents of the final season (three) online either.
I first heard about the new version of the show back in 2006. It was essentially a continuation that was airing in the UK and I was able to watch a couple of the episodes at the time through torrents. But it just wasn't the same. Not surprising given that remakes and/or continuations in any genre rarely live up to its predecessors or original classics. The 2006 addition seems to be featured on Youtube right now so I'll most likely give it another chance, although I seriously doubt it will satiate my hankering to see the entire final season of the original series.
Oh well, at least there is a good selection of (quality) fan fiction available for the reading pleasure of fans. I may even make time to write a few myself this summer.
