Doyle is an interesting main character in that he is neither remarkably altruistic, nor remarkably selfish. At his worst, he is either full of himself such as in "It Came From Earth," or his faults hurt his friends around him such as in "The Brain Blaster." At his best, he is the voice of reason who holds everyone together such as in "Where's Milo?" Doyle's arguably greatest moment is in "Where's Milo?" Milo messes up and makes several people angry at him; he disappears, and most of the gang is happy about his disappearance, and Doyle reminds everyone how kind Milo was to them.
Another interesting character is the jock bully Beef Bonk. He picks on Doyle and doesn't always get a just comeuppance. In "The Beef Who Would Be King," he is especially bad after he is ungrateful to Doyle for saving his life. But he does show a gentle side in "The Brat Pack" as well as a willingness to work with Doyle. It is probably worth noting that in "Where's Milo?" he accidentally saves the day. In some episodes like "Pizza's Honor," he gets a just comeuppance. (So this cartoon was groundbreaking in that we have a bad guy who gets the last laugh sometimes, accidentally saves the day now and then, will work with hero under the right circumstances, or get a just comeuppance sometimes.Read more ›
The plot centers around Doyle (an athlete who chose to not study) as well as the brainy Amy, who is the smartest girl in school. The show tries it's best to show how important school is (Amy gets a scholarship & pretty much everything she always wanted such as clothes, friends, ect while Doyle ends up working at a pizza parlor to make ends meet) while showing that with a bit of hard work anyone can succeed.
I'm debating showing this to my nephews & niece. It's much more entertaining than most of the cartoons out today, that's for sure.
However, I was so sad when it was cancelled after only one season! Galaxy High school should've been on the air longer!I remember waking up every Saturday morning to watch it! (We didn't have a VHS player/recorder back in the day!)
I especially loved Beef Bonk! He was such a bully and a grade 'A' tool! (Of course no one said that to his face because Beef Bonk was a 7 foot reptilian/chicken hybrid with super strength that turned green when angry!..Lol..Lol..)
It's really cool that they collected all 13 episodes into an affordable set. I know that I'm dreaming but I really would love it if they brought this cool series back with new episodes! Because Galaxy High left us hanging with a lot of loose plot-lines: like would Amy and Doyle get together and would the Bonk Bunch ever get their butts kicked by another student, and it would have been cool to end the series with the gang at Galaxy High School graduating from their Alma Mater!
Hey! It could happen....
