Highlander The Animated Series (Prime Time)

Highlander The Animated Series
Prime Time

For a story based on the premise that, "There can be only one," there sure were a lot of movies and television series based on Highlander.  To be honest, with everything that's come to be the Highlander Universe, the only thing we personally think is worth watching is the original movie, and nothing more.  Everything beyond that seemed to just get progressively worse and worse - Much like the sequels to the original The Crow film.

The animated series revolves around the plot of a post apocalyptic Earth where the remaining immortals cast away their task of "The Game," which would leave them all fighting each other until only one remains to claim, "The Prize".  However, one immortal, Kortan, refuses to give up "The Game," and continues his quest to destroy all the remaining immortals.

The series ran for forty episodes which encompassed two seasons.  Despite being a cartoon aired during the day, it was considered by many to be for a more mature audience due to the mass amounts of violence, and occasional beheadings of minor characters.

In 1996, Prime Time supported the animated series with a small series of toys.  It would be the only line of action figures the company would produce to date.

Arak - Chief of the Hunters*Hunter - Moganda's Brutal Warrior*Kortan - Evil Ruler of Moganda

Malone - The "Human" Key*Quentin - The Highlander*Ramirez - Quentin's Noble Mentor

Hunter's Powercycle
Quentin's Gavor

These days, Prime Time mainly focuses their production on toy guns and water based toys.

  1. Here are some things that I noticed about modes of transportation:

    1. Another toyline that's titled "Shogun (Japanese for "Army General") Cyber Warriors" has vehicle called the Power Cycles.

    2. The Gavvor resembles the dinosaur that's known as Struthiomimus (Latin for "Ostrich Mimic") and the Kaadu of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.

    3. The vehicles and animals in this show are similar to all the ones in the franchise of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    Other ways that this Highlander program resembles the Avatar franchise are these:

    1. Its protagonist

    A. is physically younger than twenty years of age

    B. has a special title

    C. has been alive for many years without aging

    D. is destined to save his world his world from a tyrant who intends to ravage the world that they live in

    E. is male

    F. have people who accompany and train them on their mission

    G. gains a number of skills his quest for global freedom

    2. The series' world is filled with turmoil for many years.

    3. The show's male dictator intends to prevent his archenemy from overthrowing him.

    Of course, both Highlander and Avatar resemble the second episode series of Sonic the Hedgehog for certain reasons that listed here.
