For the ads.
Yeah those bring me back. My best friend in elementary school's older brother was actually the head VJ (or whatever they called it) for the Fox 49 Kids Club.. Ricky Rocco I think was his name. Between him and Ari Shapiro I have a strange gamut of celebrity school acquaintances.

Holy shit. I remember this show being on at some insane time in the morning, like 5:30AM. So basically I'd get up way earlier than I needed to on a school day to root for other kids who I'd never meet grab dozens and dozens of Nintendo games, which I didn't have. I lived vicariously through those fuckers and their velcro suits and their mountains of NES games until my parents finally caved in and got us a Nintendo for Christmas, around 1993.
This show and the school requirement of Outdoor School the same year taught me a lot about restraint, and that quantity does not equal quantity. That's why you'll never see me at a buffet and currently still playing thru Fallout New Vegas for the hundredth time.

Man, I fucking hated the Power Team. All I wanted was to watch that dumb kid review some early 16-bit era games, but he'd go like two minutes and then the show would get hijacked by a bad Captain N ripoff. So the average show would go like this:
Host: HEY TODAY WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT PILOTWINGS! But first this crap.
[20 minutes of the Power Team repeating the same eight animation frames forever]
Host: SO ANYWAY, PILOTWINGS HAS AIRPLANES IN IT. LOOKS LIKE WE'RE OUT OF TIME! TUNE IN TOMORROW WHEN WE DON'T REVIEW ALTERED BEAST.
I think the second season of Video Power dropped the Power Team cartoon entirely. By the time I started watching it, it was all video-competition.
Also, the cartoon would've worked so much better with characters from Vic Tokai NES games. Kid Kool! Billy Big Bang Blitz! Francesca! Golgo 13!
Golgo 13 would've taken care of the Tomato robbers very quickly. But then again so would a guy with a fucking longsword.
Running gag: Golgo 13 comes close to madness trying without success to seduce Francesca. She's the one woman he can't have! It's because she's magic, and also two feet tall.

QUIRK - AMERICA'S FAVORITE TOMATO. YES, A TOMATO. HE HAS A FACE AND TALKS. HE'S LOVED BY HIS FANS BUT DON'T YELL KETCHUP AT HIM. WE DID AND APPARENTLY ITS A RACIST EPITHET. ALSO DON'T EAT PIZZA IN FRONT OF HIM. HE'LL FUCK YOU UP. SERIOUSLY HE IS THE WORLD'S ONLY SENTIENT TOMATO. HE ALSO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH KILLER TOMATOES. HE IS SIMPLY HERE FOR COMEDIC EFFECT SO WE CAN MAKE RACIST KETCHUP EPITHETS ABOUT HIS BEING A TOMATO.
MAX FORCE - NARC SUPERCOP...HE FIGHTS COLUMBIAN DRUGLORDS IN NAME ONLY WHILE TAKING BRIBES FROM THEIR BOSSES!
KUROS OF WIZARDS AND WARRIORS...NOTHING TO DO WITH DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS AND HE'S WORKING WITH A TOMATO FOR SOME REASON. HE'S TOTALLY NOT GAY. HE JUST LIKES TO SHOW OFF HIS ASS A LOT. IT'S A SUPERPOWER!
TYRONE - THE COOLEST ARCHRIVAL...HE'S BLACK AND STUFF. SERIOUSLY, WE THOUGHT WHO BETTER TO DEAL WITH A NARC COP THAN A BASKETBALL PLAYER WHO IS PROBABLY FROM THE HOOD. I MEAN WE'RE JUST ASSUMING. WE DIDN'T ASK HIM. BUT HE'S THE COOLEST ARCHRIVAL SO PROBABLY THERE'S SOME GANG BACKGROUND IN THERE SOMEWHERE. KUROS IS GETTING PRETTY FRIENDLY WITH HIM BECAUSE HE IS NOT FROM OUR WORLD. DON'T ASK HIM HOW THEY SWING IN BARBARIA. IT'S JUST NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS HOW THE SUPER TEAM CONDUCTS ITS BUSINESS IN ITS SPARE TIME.
AND BIGFOOT - THE KING OF THE MONSTER TRUCKS...HE HAS A HAREM OF SMALLER GO CARTS THAT HE POUNDS IN HIS SPARE TIME.

The New Adventures of He-man? That intro is the most 90s thing I've ever seen.
90s xtreme color and pattern combinations were actually worse than I remembered.
Also the shittiness of the NG2 tip at the end exceeded my expectations. Wow.
