The animation holds up fairly well 20 years later, but the catchiest part of this cartoon was the lyrics to the theme song. 'Secret agents working overtime, fighting crime....' Each MASK agent had a mask (duh) which emitted a special power and a vehicle which transformed from 'normal' to 'battle' mode instantly.
In addition to comanding a team of multicultural agents, Matt has his hands full trying to be a father to Scott (who can periodically get in the way, along with his robot pal T-Bob). I think that Scott was supposed to draw in many more young viewers to this series, but I never felt they were great characters. I personally would have rather been out fighting against VENOM than clowning around with the two of them.
MASK was a good cross between Transformers (unarguably THE most popular 80's robot toy) and the ongoing James Bond series.
Disappointed somewhat, I pressed play for the show. The transfer quality of the animation was really good....not grainy at all. The audio quality was fine as well. Sadly, there are only 5 episodes. I would have liked to see something more along the lines of the Transformers or GI Joe releases but it is nice to have some episodes since my VHS tape is wearing out. I feel I got enough for the value, yet I don't know if I would pay $14 each 12 more times just to complete all of season 1 were future volumes to be released. If they would bundle more episodes together and skip the useless "extras" in this edition, it would be a super product. Either that or dig up old toy commercials and include them in the extras.
So, four stars because I really wanted this to be good and it didn't disappoint...however, an extra star would be easily acheived by including more episodes.
Recently, a friend and I completed a movie script for the show. We are hoping it will be made someday into a feature film!! Join us here if you are a fan.

Purchased as a gift...it was requested, so I can only assume it was well received.Published on February 1, 2010 by Kay in MN
The picture quality is good but the sound quality is very crappy. Sounds like it was recorded from a Video tape that was in EP. Avoid this DVD since no other episodes came out.Published on January 10, 2006 by Lita Fan
Video transfer was pretty good for such an old cartoon, but the audio transfer on 4 of the episodes is plagued with chronic hissing. Read morePublished on August 11, 2005 by H8fillsme
