Pryde Of The X-Men
Debut: December 15, 1989
Debut: December 15, 1989

The little known "series" that came out in 1989, and lasted for only a single episode. More comic-bookish and stylized than the series we would all watch several years later, it had a more diverse team as well. Cyclops, Storm, and Wolverine are standard fare for X-Men cartoons, but Nightcrawler, Colossus, Shadowcat, and the Dazzler round out this team. The only episode ever made, Pryde of the X-Men, focused on Kitty Pryde, the Shadowcat, arriving at the X-Mansion and getting a "crash course" on being an X-Man when Magneto and Juggernaught literally crash through the front door. We get a very nice pairing off as the X-Men storm Avalon and go up against the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (Colossus against Juggernaught, Wolverine against Toad, Cyclops against White Queen, etc). In the end, the X-Men triumph, they save the world, and Kitty rescues Lockheed from Magneto. Its a shame this one didn't take off, it would have been fun. Despite the fact they gave Wolverine an AUSTRALIAN accent instead of a Canadian one.

It was one of the last television animation of the 80's before November 12, Sunday in 1989.

        i have this one shot too, but i was really dissapointed when i saw it... i mean i love shadowcat, the rest of the line up ... dazzler...? really? were they not any other x ladies they could have used? but the thing that amazed me was that besides being 1989 it had better animation than the last two seasons of fox kids "xmen" (which also kind of got on my nerves cause it screw up the comic arcs...).

          The only good that came from this one-off "Pryde of the X-Men" was the hit Konami arcade game.

            This X men is by far as good if not better as any modern X men show.

                X-Men didn't air only one show it had 4 or more seasons, the year and info on this is completely wrong.

                    it sucks that it was just one show..I actually had the wolverine action figure back in the eighties..whats crazy is that the animation does look like its predecessor bout a decade later...good times..

                          i hated that it was only one episode,i got ride of my vhs because the one episode it didn\'t interest me as much as x-men 90\'s and x-men evolution. it had little characters.

                              The animation was way better cause it was Japanese animators(probably the same ones who did G.I. Joe). I remember Wolverine had an Australian(or British) accent.

                                This Test Eposode was the basis for the hit Xmen arcade game!

                                        Does anyone know if the people that made this had anything to do with the show from the 90\'s?

                                          actually, this was a one shot.. they didnt have more episodes past \" pyrde of the xmen\"
                                            15 years, 1 month ago
                                            I belive this would have been better than tha other X-Men show, they jus needed to cast new voice actors
                                              15 years, 2 months ago
                                              I think so.
                                                15 years, 4 months ago
                                                never heard of this series - wish I can see it!
                                                  15 years, 9 months ago
                                                  yeah, i remeber this czarton but i dont think that theirs only one episode though...
                                                    15 years, 9 months ago
                                                    I remember this show but now after reading this I do remember there only being one episode of it! However, I\'m one of the lucky people in existence who happens to have this VHS tape in his collection.
                                                      15 years, 11 months ago
                                                      I loved this cartoon way better than the one in the 90\'s the 90s gotten to werd and the animation wasnt all that great. I though this was a movie back when i first saw it i didnt know it would was a one shot series.. haha but play the speed of this on slow, it sounds like a heavy ballad.
                                                        15 years, 11 months ago
                                                        I don\'t remember THAT far back... I remember the later series\' that were on Fox Kids and terrestrial channel 3 (aka ITV)
                                                          15 years, 11 months ago
                                                          wow don\'t remember this one!
                                                            15 years, 11 months ago
                                                            Hobbit...I think you are referring to the Fox Kids X-men from the 90s (great show too). This was only 1 episode and wolverine was not wearing yellow and blue, but more of an orange/brownish color spandex.

                                                            I been looking for this though. Thanks for posting it.
