A cult favorite among fans of '80s-era TV animation, The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers combined anime-influenced artwork with elements of traditional science fiction adventure and Western shoot-em-ups. Jerry Orbach (Law and Order) voiced the show's hero, Zachary Foxx, who led the technologically and genetically advanced Galaxy Rangers against the evil Queen of the Crown and her minions. Action in each episode is plentiful, though one of the keys to the show's popularity was the relative maturity of the scripts, which did not shy from exploring real emotions (such as the fate of Foxx's wife after her capture by the Queen) or some genuinely menacing villains, like the lethal alien creature dubbed "Scarecrow" by Galaxy Ranger Shane Gooseman. The show's animation, created by the acclaimed Tokyo Movie Shinsha (now called TMS Entertainment) in Japan, was highly influenced by the anime of the period, which also contributed to its appeal among older fans (however, the quality of the animation varies from episode to episode due to different teams working on different stories). Add to this the fine vocal work by Orbach and others, and the result is a weekly American animated series from the 1980s that holds up remarkably well for current audiences.

Thirty-two of the series' 65 episodes are featured on this four-disc set, which is nicely supplemented by a 30-minute interview with creator Robert Mandell. Over the course of the featurette, he discusses the influence of other animated shows on Galaxy Rangers (including his own Thunderbirds 2086 and TMS' Space Cobra) as well as the challenges of farming out the animation to Japan and then using ADR to dub the footage. Mandell is also featured in commentaries on four episodes, where he's joined by his brother Henry (a voice-over artist on the show) and story editor Christopher Rowley. The real finds among the extras are the original pilot, which differs slightly from the series' first episode in both story and voice talent, as well as a recreation of one of the show's tie-in storybook audio cassettes. A jukebox feature offers videos of the show's pop-rock theme songs as well as three library tracks used in subsequent episodes. --Paul Gaita

It was the beginning of the massive use of Computer Generation Image (CGI), but beyond that, Galaxy Rangers was something unique, the tradition of the space opera working perfectly with old and new kinds of animation under the command of wonderfull scripts.
For those who don't know this the basic story is: in a far future the contact with other alien races let the human race go to the stars, creating a group of special officers of law to keep the peace in the galaxy.
But Zachary Fox the leader of this team knows well there's another mission: stop any attack of the evil Queen of Crown, who's trying to conquer the galaxy.
These things makes this show a unique combination of wonderfull animation with clever stories to people of all ages.

Koch Vision and Gaylord Productions presents "ADVENTURES OF THE GALAXY RANGERS" (1986.1989) (704 mins/Color) (Dolby Digital) --- In 2086, two peaceful aliens journey to Earth seeking our help. In return, they gave us the plans for our first hyperdrive, allowing mankind to open the doors to the stars. We have assembled a team of unique individuals to protect Earth and our allies. Courageous pioneers committed to the highest ideals of justice and dedicated to preserving law and order across the new frontier --- The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (1986-1989) was an animated Space Western television series created by Robert Mandell and Gaylord Entertainment Company. The series combined sci-fi stories with a typical wild-west-"feel", elements of a space opera and with the traditional fantasy elements of sword and sorcery. It was one of the first anime-style shows to be primarily created in the US, although the actual animation was done in Japan by the famed Tokyo Movie Shinsha, and at the time it was aired, it was a revolutionary children's show --- When the series originally aired, episodes were aired five days a week until all sixty five episodes were shown, with the episodes largely being aired out of order.

Under the production staff of:
Robert Mandell - producer & created by
Abe Mandell - executive producer
Bob Chrestani - producer
Eleanor Kearney - associate producer
Phil Galdston - Original Music
John Van Tongeren - Original Music

Story line set after the year 2086, when two aliens from the planets Andor and Kirwin travelled to Earth to search for allies against the ruthless and expansionist Crown Empire led by the Queen of the Crown. In return for the help, mankind was given construction plans for an FTL-drive (hyperdrive).

When KOCH Vision released the single disk Galaxy Rangers DVD's way back when, I picked them up and loved them, though I was disappointed in the non-chronological 'selection' process that they adopted to create them. I loved the episodes but wanted a more comprehensive approach to this series which in many ways broke production ground and mixed American and Japanese talent to great success. I wanted them ALL!!! This VOLUME ONE collection is exactly what I was hoping would someday arrive.

According to what I have read, the label is releasing two big compilation sets that together will present the entire Galaxy Rangers series (there were 65 eps created) in two waves. I actually wrote to the company and they responded by stating that one collection would simply have been too big to market, thus the two waves. The company went on to communicate that the second wave would release in late Summer/early Fall of 08. What great news.

I love that the creator was involved and I love that the series is being presented in perfect chronological order (the way it should be). I have pre ordered MY copy and am thoroughly looking forward to a NO GUTS / NO GLORY weekend of Galaxy Rangers upon its arrival:)

what a classic jem this series is- many people don't even know about this cartoon which is sad and easily better than silverhawks, voltron, and any other space related 80's cartoon. don't get me wrong i'm still waiting for silverhawks on dvd, and voltron is awesome- but galaxy rangers offered such a great voice acting crew, great stories, and amazing action (people died and blew up- no parachutes here like gi joe or transformers). please do yourself a favor and watch or at least rent this amazing collection now presented in order. if you love westerns, noirs, and scifi look no further galaxy rangers will have you getting out your cowboy hat and yelling yeeee haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

This is something that's been much anticipated for many a long year. :)

The fan base may be small as compared to He-Man, but we are dedicated and have been waiting for this to be done justice.

It was worth the wait because now we got the backstory on why the animation was sometimes so different from episode to episode. The commentary on the selected episodes was great. (I just wish we would have had more commentary!)

The interview with Robert Mandell was interesting and the music tracks were wonderful - I just wish they were in MP3 form to be uploaded to an iPod to take on the road for those of us who have a daily commute.

Eagerly looking forward to Volume 2!
