Editorial Reviews

Nerdy Aimee and popular Doyle get transfered up, way up to Galaxy High! It's school where strange creatures from all over the universe go to school side-by-side. But with misfit classmates like Milo De Venus, Booey Bubblehead and Beef and the Bonk Bunch, you can't be too cool for school without a supply of liquid nitrogen. Aimee finds her self Miss popularity, but Doyle is relegated to the nerd pile for the first time ever!

I used to love watching this cartoon back in the heady days of wacked out 80's Saturday TV.

Okay, I didn't know (or care) who Felder was as a little kid, but his credentials attached to this project certainly are impressive now.

GHS is one of the rare animations I recommend picking up and watching, because it is one of the gems you hardly see in animation today.

I grew up watching this cartoon during the 1980s. I am pleased it is finally getting released on DVD. This is a dream come true.

Aimee and Doyle, two earth students, participate in a most unusual exchange student program. They are transferred to Galaxy High, a high school in outer space.

Sidestepping some important questions (like how Aimee and Doyle breathed in outer space!) the series instead focused on the consequent cross-interaction issues between humans and aliens. Aimee became part of the in-crowd, while Doyle is a 'nerd'--resulting in some important lessons for each.

In "The Beef Who Would be King" Doyle shines, rescuing Galaxy High bully Beef Bonk from the planet Cholesterol. Apparently the people on that planet eat their king!

Then "Dollars and Sense" Aimee learns that gifts from Reggie Unicycle really aren't worth it if he's not a good person.

Illustrating just how much time and care did go into Saturday morning cartoons during the 1980's, Don Felder (Eagles) did series music. Okay, I didn't know (or care) who Felder was as a little kid, but his credentials attached to this project certainly are impressive now. The series creators simply could have had anybody doing music for the series--- the majority of us hyped up little kids would not have known the difference during original airdates.

This series is a classic example of a great Saturday morning cartoon. Please release more of them ASAP!

For those of you who never seen Galaxy High it's essentially a teen sitcom show much like Saved by the Bell or Square Pegs, only it's a cartoon... in space... with aliens... and a LOT better. Essentially you get the same elements in both like addressing teen issues (peer pressure, classes, etc), providing satire on HS cliques, and even giving a positive message now and then. The differences (aside from the aliens and such) is in the writing and execution.

Being a cartoon gives Galaxy High the flexibility to make what would be a standard cliche writing for other shows into something funny. Dealing with a bully on Boy Meets World is one thing. Dealing with a bully that's a 7 foot pink alien chicken called "The Beef" is another. I'll bet even money that they used that name for the sole purpose of plugging the one liner, "Where's the Beef" on the show (and old Wendy's commercial cliche from the 80's). Anyway what's I'm trying to say is the episode plots (or lessons) might be standard fare, but the stuff they write and animate around it makes up for it in spades.

This DVD will have the first seven episodes of the series on it, including Here's the episode list:

1 - Welcome to Galaxy High: The debut (or pilot) episode that sets the entire premise up for you. Two high school earthlings become exchange students in an intergalactic high school. Love the one liners.

2 - Pizza Honor: Doyle (human) has to deliver a pizza to a haunted planet. My favorite lines are from the Beef and Roland ("Killer mushrooms!!" "Vampire penguins!!!")

3 - The Beef who would be King: The Beef rules a fatty planet as "the High Cholesterol", but ends up with a surprise of a coronation.

4 - Where's Milo?: Milo (alien buddy) disapears after getting everybody mad at him.

Awwwww yeah.....This show rocked. Yes, I was in high school when this came out in the 80's and watched it religiously. I like wacked-out sci fi cartoons. I'm excited it's coming to DVD. I paid $30.00 for a used videotape copy from Canada a couple years ago, so this is gold. Hey, this is off the subject, but for 80's Voltron fans--heads up--the original series is coming to DVD in September 2006! Just thought fans would like to know.....(more gold)

Yes this will be a bit biased because my mother was the casting director for Galaxy High School and my father played the voice of the lovable slime, Earl Eccchhhhh. I remember being about 10 years old and hanging out in the studios for the recording sessions. What is never brought up is that Nancy Cartwright, the future voice of Bart Simpson, played Gilda Gossip on this show before getting her big break. The voice is nearly identical to Bart Simpson's voice.

Anyway, this show had very clever ideas for "the future" back in 1986 and while not near the level of "you get it or you don't" futurama humor, this cartoon series was short lived but packed a lot into it's 13 episode. Including a man eating pizza.....Can't beat that for $22.

Finally, Galaxy High is on DVD. I used to love watching this cartoon back in the heady days of wacked out 80's Saturday TV. Im from the U.K so this was a real rareity on British television, and most of my friends never got the chance to see it as it was only shown at very early mornings back in the summer of 1987! Blimmey all the memmories are flooding back just thinking about it, goosebumps and everything! How cool!!! This was by far the best and most emotionally involving cartoon of the lot, a must for those of you looking for a nostalgia fix.

I grew up in the 80s and although I have fond memories of cartoons from back then, frankly I think for the most part they sucked. Seriously, the cartoons of the 90's and 00's have been way better in quality on most levels than the ones I grew up with. I am really huge on nostalgia and how awesome the old 80s toons were to me, but let's face it - when you try to watch them today they simply do not hold up. I personally can't stand to watch some of those cartoons today that I know I used to love and watch over and over and over again as an 80s child.

This one is different. There are a few golden shows that still hold up to me as decent cartoons (one example, the Real Ghostbusters). I bought both volumes 1 and 2 of this for a plane trip home and I watched them both all the way through for the flight. They were fantastic! It wasn't that the show was particularly funny, but it was entertaining. The character designs are amazingly clever. The voice acting is good. The characters are nicely developed for what it is. The animation is a wonderful step up above the usual bad 80s drek (japanese animation, in fact.. TMS for you animation nerds out there). The stories were cute, too!

I think the strong point of this series is the world it creates. You have these very nicely realized characters and a couple of earthlings thrown in for flavor. It's high school in space, the vibe is very happy, trippy, fun, and just plain awesome. You have this great sense of "being there", like you would love to see more adventures of these school kids all from different planets. I don't know how else to explain it other than if you like being transported to a different fictional "universe" this show does it really well.
