    One thing I'll always remember about this series is a scene from "Sunquake" where Booster and XR, having previously bet on whether "Shiv" was Buzz or not, were now bickering over whether Evil Buzz technically counted.

    "Zurg responds to every setback by building a larger and even more destructive hornet drone" is a genuinely great gag ngl

    I'm sure if you're aiming to do topics on children's television, but I would love if you would take an overview of the adult animated cult series Dilbert. If not that, I would like a history video that covers The Puzzle Place.

    The evil Buzz with goatee seems an obvious reference to the Star Trek TOS "Mirror Universe" episode which depicts an "evil" doppelganger of Mr. Spock, also with a goatee. Given the nature of the two shows (and Shatner's association, LOL by the way), I doubt it's coincidence. Wonder how many dads caught that reference watching this over their kids' shoulders!

    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

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)

    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
