The Horror Honeys: Saturday Morning Horror Cartoon ~ 'Toxic Crusaders'

Saturday Morning Horror Cartoon ~ 'Toxic Crusaders'

While most kids were watching Captain Planet and the Planeteers, most of the Horror Honeys were watching Troma's Toxic Crusaders, a kid-friendly version of Troma's Toxic Avenger series. Like Captain Planet, the message of Toxic Crusaders was "pollution is bad!" But unlike Captain Planet, Toxie had a sense of humor, and he and his gooey buddies offered the kind of fun that results in rampant merchandising and generations of adult fans who never forgot their love for this quirky cartoon!

Fighting villainous polluters from the planet Smogula, Toxie and his ragtag pals spent thirteen episodes trying to save the earth. Yes, Toxic Crusaders had a short run (1990-91), but like most Troma products, it has lived on in the hearts and minds of its adult fans. While Toxie comics and toys are fairly easy to track down, the original cartoons are a little more scarce. However, you can watch the intro and Episode One below! Have a spooky (and Toxie) Saturday, kids!
