The Battletoads gained fame in their 1991 Nintendo game. The game featured pretty decent graphics for the time, and an insane difficulty level that made you want throw the controller at the TV. The cartoon, which came out shortly after the game, serves as a prequel and looks into how the toads became who they are today. The Battletoads cartoon was a holiday special made to promote the video game for Christmas, and to kind of get a feel for if there was a demand for the train wreck of a cartoon. I think it was to all of our benefit that there was not and only a single episode was ever produced. The cartoon only really served to expose the whole Battletoads thing for what it really was... A really, really, blatant Ninja Turtles rip off, except for this cartoon was neither funny or cool in any way.
