TV Shows - Big Bad Beetleborgs

Big Bad Beetleborgs (and later Beetleborgs Metallix, see below) was an American television series produced by Saban Entertainment. It aired for two seasons on Fox Kids between September 7, 1996 and March 2, 1998. The series adapted combat footage from the Metal Hero tokusatsu-series Juukou B-Fighter (first season) and B-Fighter Kabuto (second season). It starred three typical all-American kids: Drew McCormick, his sister Jo, and their best friend Roland Williams, whose family owns the local comic shop, where they spend most of their time. On a dare from some bullies, they go inside the local "haunted house." Once inside, they free Flabber, a wacky ghost with Elvis Presley's hair, Jay Leno's chin and Liberace's wardrobe, who had been imprisoned in the pipe organ. Flabber cannot thank the kids enough, so he offers to grant a wish for them. The three young comic book fans know what they want, and that is to become their favorite Superhero Team, The Big Bad Beetleborgs. Flabber grants their wish, and the children are given the power to turn into the heroes, but now that the heroes exist in the real world, the villains from the comic book likewise come to life to spread chaos. The three friends, with their new powers and a little help from Flabber, must stop them. This is complicated by the "House Monsters", comic relief monsters (Count Fangula, a vampire; Wolfie, a werewolf; Mums, a mummy, Frankenbeans, a Frankensteins Monster and later Little Ghoul a... er, little ghoul), who often try to eat the kids, but generally have to settle for eating the screen-time.

1 I liked the show. It was a little more cutsy and kid-ish but that's OK. The only problem I had with the show was there was always a chase scene with the house monsters. The Borgs without their armor would come to the house and the monsters would chase them. Happend every show.I always thought to myself...WHY? Turn into the Borgs and show them who's boss. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on May 4, 2012, 8:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 This show made Power Rangers look like Shakespeare. Just horrible. A bunch of kids running around in a haunted house for the first 3/4s of the show and then suddenly switch to some Japanese tokusatsu footage for the last 1/4 and you're supposed to believe that those robot guys were those same little kids from before. Riiight. And yeah, whoever came up with that Flabber guy must have been on some serious drugs whilst watching Leno. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 22, 2012, 1:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 I also forgot about this show. The title seemed familiar so I clicked here. I am so going onto youtube to listen to the theme song again. I always thought that flabber guy looked like Leno I just googled the title for images of the show and it all came back to me. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on August 22, 2009, 11:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 My god, I completely forgot about this show! Flabber was one of the funniest things I had ever seen, that description of him is 100% accurate. My brother watched this every day in the afternoon when he got home from preschool. I would watch shows with him sometimes and when I first saw Flabber, that was it, I went into hysterics every time I saw the show from then on. I once told him that Flabber was going to get him when he was sleeping and he immediately burst into tears. I feel bad in hind sight but that had me howling, he's just so god damn ridiculous looking. http://totallylookslike.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/jay-leno4.jpg -- Submitted By: (Xenoltih) on July 19, 2009, 5:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
