    Disney missed the opportunity of having Buzz X Mira as a couple since they were suppose to be lovers. Patrick does make Buzz sound funnier in a good way & all I hear is Joe 😂

    It just so happens I found out you released this right around I was thinking about it. I watched this on syndication (when the Disney Channel outside of the US ran it) nearly 20 years ago and it was one of my favorite shows. I have forgotten how much I love this show, and looking back, I was surprised it wasn't a bigger hit and explode like a crystallic fusion overload. Now I'm excited for the Lightyear moving coming out next year--which I hope to go into a packed theater because should have their covid shots by then.

    The fact that Disney doesn't supported more tv animated series of Pixar other films; no continuation and new adventures such: -Bugs' Life animated series -Mike and Sully: animated series -'the adventure of THE INCREDIBLES -Up: Carl and Dug Amazing journey -the adventure of Nemo and friends -Brave the animated adventures Such great potential but wasted into live action remakes and other properties. Dreamworks succeeded more by supporting their films into animated spinoffs and put out in Netflix. Kung-fu Panda and How to train your dragon series and great examples

    On an Unrelated note: Are you gonna do any more episodes on Nickelodeon Game Shows? I’d love to find out what Happened to Shows like Figure it out, Double Dare, GUTS and Slime Time Live! Also maybe you could do a Video about the G4 network Since, Allegedly, it’s coming back soon. (I already left a Comment that was on topic about my fan theory/Question about where the toys of the other characters from this show are in toy story)

    I had this XR toy that fired out of his gun. I remember shoving fruit snacks in the gun and freaking out, so I hid it under the couch. Years later my mom found it and it was so gross.

  • RoboNarples2929

    This is one of those things that every once in a while would pop up in the back of my head, and I could never fully remember what it was. Turns out this was a much more interesting thing than I remembered. Thanks for jogging my memory of weird but beloved childhood shows.

    Man, Kevin keeps bringing my childhood back, I remember I was so obsessed with this show when I was in sixth grade, I still remember I would toy with the idea of me and some classmates to be the Lightyear Team, childhood is so good.

    I did not like Patrick Warburton as Buzz, thankfully they got a better voice for Buzz in Kingdom Hearts 3

  • Talonted97

    Request: Rocky Point Amusement Park!

  • Meraki

    Woah, Wait!! This actually existed! I thought this was a fever dream!

  • JackHammer87

    What's strange here is that while I remember Warburton doing a fine job in the rest of the show, the way he delivered a lot of his lines in the pilot sounded rather weird while Tim Allen sounded a lot more natural in the DTV release. Maybe it's because I myself am a lot more familiar with the Allen version, or maybe it's because there's no one to compare Warburton to in the rest of the show, but yeah... Lol

    This wasn't really a *"history of"* more of just a synopsis of the story arcs, and episodes. No real discussion on it's creation, or cancellation. This video was more what I was hoping for

    Wait, wait, wait.... you mean to tell me, that Booster, possibly my favorite character from the show, was voiced by Vir Cotto, my second favorite Babylon 5 character? The hell?? Edit: The lack of Nos4A2 in your synopsis saddens me.

    Dude really dragged this video out to 24 minutes just to say he doesn’t know why Disney hasn’t added the show. Waste of my time and I can see how this channel has improved in the last 2 years. I can’t believe he’s getting worse at making good content.

    Really one of the shows that suffered from the Eisner-esque policy of "Ony 65 episodes / 2 seasons." some Disney animated shows weren't beyond mediocre enough to deserves it, but I for one think that Buzz Lightyear of Star Command ones one of the gems that could have benefited from more. Also a shame you didn't have time to talk about some of the Classic Horror referencing episodes and villains, like they somewhat unique at the time take on vampires NOS-4-A2.
