RETURN of the THROWBACK THURSDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know it's been a while since the last throwback, but now I'm back on it. I'm also typing up another interview that will fallow up with another THROWBACK THURSDAYS CONTEST for the month of October. (stay posted) This throwback stuck in my mind as a kid. It was a great concept with a poor cheesy delivery. (as were many 80's cartoons) Turbo teen aired in 1984 with only 12 episodes, but I just couldn't get it out of my head. I was super excited when I saw the saturday morning promos on TV.
Please post comments if any of you remember this show, so I won't feel alone on this one.
Show Summary: Not only was Brett Matthews a great sports car driver, he was also a great sports car! Following an accident in which he crashed into a science lab where a top-secret transfer ray was being developed, Brett had the ability to turn himself into a car whenever his body temperature reached a certain level. Brett trusted no one—aside from his girlfriend Pattie, his buddy Alex, and the federal government—with his chrome-plated secret.
Always an altruistic automobile, the Turbo Teen used his powers for good. Most notably, he battled bad guy Dark Rider and his truck, Bigfoot.
Isn't that thriller instrumental track kind of bizzare?
