Old UK cartoon similar to Command Keen: Fantastic Max

Post by Napalm »

Thought I'd post about this old cartoon I used to watch on TV when I was a kid. I randomly found the intro on YouTube and it just clicked in my head that the story-line/plot is similar to that of Commander Keen. Although the main kid is younger the idea is similar.

Hope this brings back happy memories for others as it did for me.

"Rocket AND Roll!" Good times. Though as the episodes wore on I started getting bored of it. Shall have to check it out again one of these days.

Odd, I feel as if I've seen that stuff ages ago, but can't be sure if it's false memory or not. If I've seen it it has been no doubt dubbed here. But that green alien looks familiar.

I thought you were talking about Mighty Max, but it's obviously something completely different. :disguised

That was the first thing I thought of too.

As far as I'm concerned, Kyle XY is still the most similar to Keen you will get.

I'd like to see what Commander Keen can do as a baby. With an IQ of 315, he'd walk and talk at the age of one.
