{"title":"Voltron, Defender of the Universe","dateDebut":"1984","dateEnd":"1987","description":"From days of long ago comes a legend, the legend of Voltron, defender of the universe.\n\nEvil forces threaten to take over the universe, and Voltron is needed once more. Five space explorers set out to find and recover the legendary Voltron (and succeed within the first couple of episodes). After that, it was a weekly event for King Zarkon to send a horrible Robeast (robotic monster, so it was okay to cut it up on 80's television, like the robotic footsoldiers on Ninja Turtles) to try and take over, while the five main characters jump into their incredible giant robotic lions, then merge them together to form Voltron.\n\nVoltron was a heavily edited version of two Japanese anime. \n\nBeast King GoLion - The year is 1999. The planet Altea has been taken over by the evil Galra Empire. Five young space pilots return to Earth to discover it has been devastated by a nuclear war. The pilots are captured and enslaved in Emperor Dai Bazaal's arena, where they are forced to fight for their lives. They escape and land on Altea, where they learn about GoLion\n\nDairugger XV - The Rugger Team is an exploration, planetary survey, and defensive force. Planet Earth is in a time of prosperity.
