The year: 2020. The place: Empire City. The situation: Brandon “Big Boss” Babel, along with his gang of crooks, is holding the entire city under the palm of his iron hand and the Empire City Police Department can do nothing to stop him. As a last resort, Mayor Davis sends CyberCOP Baldwin P. Vess (Codename: Bulletproof) to take him down.
The concept is simple: collect the very best officers that the country has to offer and begin a campaign to eradicate organized crime. The members of C.O.P.S. are all extraordinary crimefighters — each one a master of a special skill, each one dedicated to the cause of justice. Though the concept may be simple, the job isn’t easy: The Big Boss and his gang are the roughest and most persistent bunch of criminals to challenge law and order in Empire City.
This DVD collection features all 65 episodes from this animated series based on the popular toy line from Hasbro®.
What We Thought:
I kind of remember the cartoon COPS from my childhood. It wasn’t one that I loved, but I sort of remember watching it.
Watching it now, it somewhat reminds me of M.A.S.K. without the masks and vehicles that turned into things. There’s similar storylines and bad guys and stuff like that. This is a lot cheesier as an adult although to be fair, I haven’t seen M.A.S.K. in a long time too.
The henchmen remind me of the bumbling henchmen you see in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and He-Man. Even though they may have captured the good guys at one point, we know the COPS are going to outsmart them.
Big Boss reminded me of Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget. I think this show is similar to that one as well when it comes to storylines. Man I guess all 80s cartoons were pretty similar now that I think about it.
When COPS The Complete Series came my way I asked some friends if they remembered it. Some had, some did not. If you remember the show and want a trip down memory lane, this complete series is pretty affordable. It comes in much smaller packaging compared to other complete series sets.
