The History of Automan – It’s Like Tron But Different? And On TV
Toy Galaxy – Automan was a science fiction superhero television series. It aired for 12 episodes (although 13 were made) on ABC between 1983 and 1984. It consciously emulates the stylistic trappings of the Walt Disney Pictures live-action film Tron, in the context of a superhero TV series.
A short-lived bold and expensive experiment that didn’t pay off. At least they got an action figure out of it.
