A group of mutants fight against the pollution-loving alien Dr. Killemoff in the fictional city of Tromaville, led by Toxie, a nerd-turned-superhero.
After years of silence from the Apocolypse INC (from part 2 and 3 of the Toxic Avenger seriers), Apocolypse INC returns to Tromaville under new management, instead of a demon, its an alien from the planet Smogulla known as Dr.Killemoff. Toxie has too battle Apocolypse once more to protect his hometown from the evil spage doers and the fat and corrupted Mayor. But he won't have to do it alone as a group of other mutant superhero's join him in the fight, NoZone, Junkyard, Headbanger, Major Disaster and Toxie become THE TOXIC CRUSADERS.
I was a fan of Troma films as a kid, believe it or not. I had The Toxic Avenger, Redneck Zombies, The Children, Nuke Em' High, etc. mostly on VHS tapes and it wasn't until I was a teenager that I found out about Toxic Crusaders.
Alright, just saying, I am an eco-sinner (yes it's a term now, so far only defined online on Urban Dictionary). Eco-sinners love polluting the earth on purpose for various reasons, and despite being highly knowledgeable on the topic of pollution they care nothing about the environment. Since I'm a prolific eco-sinner, I usually steer clear of movies and TV programs that show pollution in a bad light (Captain Planet, The Lorax, An Inconvenient Truth, etc.). But hey, I loved this cartoon. If I love it and I'm against the environment, then I'm sure chances are you'll enjoy it even more.
Toxic Crusaders lasted thirteen episodes but parents were wary since the show, albeit harmless for kids and sticking to child-friendly language and animation, was based on the Toxic Avenger film series, notorious for the amount of sex and vulgar language. Toxic Crusaders follows the adventures of Toxie, a nerdy but caring superhero mutant, along with his team of Tromaville mutant friends and his girlfriend Yvonne, while they fight a gang of "mutant pollutants", roach-like creatures from a planet where pollution is to them what oxygen and water is to humans (I want to live on the pollution planet, I'd love it so much more!). The pollution roaches are ruled by a short leader named Czar, but on Earth most of whom is seen doing the real polluting is Dr. Killemoff, who has to wear a gas mask to survive the air on Earth, has a business suit and the misleading appearance of an industrialist, and smokestacks on his back (never really explained). He has left Tromaville heavily polluted from his many factories and hazardous waste dumping operations.
It wasn't so much the stupid enviro-hippie propaganda message within the series that I enjoyed. Had it been some other movie or program I likely would've hated it. However Troma's lovable characters and the cool animation is enough to keep you watching 'till the end. I loved the soundtrack, especially the theme song, which I now have on my MP3 player.
Don't pass up this excellent and hilarious cartoon series, it's really worth watching at least once, even if you aren't a fan of Troma movies. While the Toxic Avenger certainly isn't appropriate for kids by any stretch of the imagination (I bought my VHS tapes at a yard sale since my parents would never dream of buying them for me), Toxic Crusaders has no bad language, very little, if any, violence, at last not in a gory blood-shedding way, no pervy sex jokes and is harmless for children. I highly recommend it for people of any age, although my favorite Troma movies will always be The Children and Redneck Zombies (on a side note, it'd be great if Troma did a film on the Tobacco Man from Redneck Zombies, he was a really cool character). The movie is merely 3 episodes of the short lived cartoon series loosely based on the cult horror movie "The Toxic Avenger" and it's sequels. Chalk it up to what the hell were they thinking? Of course after seeing this cartoon series about a nerd being turned into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength, who then teams up with a gang of other mutants to make the world ecologically friendly by doing battle with an alien and his minions, and afterwords buying the endless toy tie ins, kids would want to see the movies that it was based on. But even disregarding that warped notion, the cartoon was ludicrously bad and had an unpalatable 'save the environment' scenario that was only topped by the simply repulsive indoctrinating garbage that was "Captain Planet". Personally I awaiting the cartoon happy house based on "Phantasm" and "Street Trash"
