Up next in Cat’s cartoon queue: Bucky O’Hare
If your Righteous Indignation has suffered a hit
And your photon accelerator’s broken a bit
And you’re losin’ your mind, and you’re pitchin’ a fit
Call the funky fresh rabbit who can take care of it!
3 episodes in, and this is the synopsis as I’ve learned it: there’s these toads who lived as sappy 1950s american consumers until the day they built a helpful AI system of robots; now that AI system has manipulated them into a militaristic factory planet bent on conquest of the neighboring worlds - specifically that of “The Mammals”. The Mammals (especially the Rabbits in particular) have formed a resistance and there’s a constant battle going on.
Now, from our universe there’s a nerdy little kid named Willy who built a photon accelerator (?????) but part of it was out of phase with the space-time continuum, and - as it happens - the photon accelerator on our heroes’ ship (awesomely dubbed the “Righteous Indignation”) is also out of phase by the exact same amount, so logically, when Willy turns his on, it makes the door of his bedroom a portal to the Righteous Indignation, where he volunteers as a space-time mechanic after the original gets flushed away into another dimension?????
So there’s Bucky, a heroic rabbit with a laser pistol; Jenny, a glammed-up rabbit with secret psychic powers that nobody else seems to know about; Blinky, a short cyclopian robot whose eye is a movie projector; Deadeye, a four-armed duck who likes to shoot shit; Bruce (the Berserker Babboon) is dead, so Willy DuWitt, the plucky hobbit-sized nerd kid from earth who would otherwise be dealing with bullies on skateboards, steps in as space-time mechanic, but he has to leave the fray to go to school every morning and whatever.
I really only started watching because this theme song is fucking awesome, and because…just, what?
