i REALLY liked CHOPPER, and GLOVE was sometimes alright to watch. also, the way that Dr. Scarab ridiculed everyone was sometimes entertaining.

I've heard of this show and watching bits of it before- but never really watched it. But I have been curious for a while- I wonder how much, if any, connection Bionic Six might have to The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman?
Steve Austin and Jamie Sommers' children, maybe? Smile

I watched it as a kid. It was fun. don't remember the specifics, other than their power up scenes.

As for ties to the Six Million Dollar Man other than the obvious thematic connection a couple actors from the live action series actually did voices for some of the characters in the cartoon.

Most notably Alan Oppenheimer,a.k.a the first Dr. Rudy "we have the technology we can rebuild him" Wells in the Six Million Dollar Man provided the voice for Professor Amadeus Sharp . The man responsible for giving the Bionic six there bionic parts

So yea I'd say there's a fair chance that this show was meant to be a cartoon version of the six million dollar man meets the bionic woman they have and adopt several kids and all end up super powered by bionic implants. but apparently could ot get the rights to the charater names or something.

Still it was one of the shows I enjoyed as a kid.

I remember watching this one. I liked it. Wasn't a stand-out favorite, but it was one of the better ones. As for clips, you should have an easy time finding at least one here:

i remember watching the bionic six on saturdays in the afternoon around 3:30. the animation was fantastic, very dynamiic, the character designs rocked, and the opening was just a gem, especially th einto song. I was young but dont remember how young when it was on, but i remember taking time out of my chores to watch the show, i had the action figures fro bionic one and mother one, my brother had karate one. i wish that this series would come out on dvd so i can rewatch teh show as i dont remember too much other then that, there are a few episodes over on youtube, including bionics on, the return of the bunji and its only a little handicap!, plus the opening theme is on there. there are a couple of websites fans created but nothing in too much detail sadly. but i miss the show...

Someone's apparently posted all 65 episodes of Bionic Six on Google Video! Wow! Cool
(Until an official DVD release happens, at least you can enjoy some episodes this way.)
