Voltron: Defender of the Universe is back on primetime on MYX TV
Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
In the 80s, one anime cartoon invaded homes with robots that were loved by good, feared by evil. After blazing onto TV screens in 1984, Voltron: Defender of the Universe quickly became a top-rated animated series. The hit series inspired a best-selling toy line and made Voltron a pop culture icon. MYX TV proudly brings back Voltron: Defender of the Universe in its original form, on primetime. The series premieres on April 25th and will air Monday through Friday, 7:30pm ET/4:30pm PT on MYX TV.
Voltron features a team of five brave pilots, known as the Voltron Force, whose individual lion robots join together to form a giant super robot as they defend the galaxy from evil. The classic show was adapted from a Japanese anime series.
"We couldn't be happier to bring the classic episodes of Voltron back to our fans, and to MYX TV, a perfect outlet for our content,” says Tiffany Ilardi, Managing Director, World Events Productions. “With such a big year ahead of us, including a new Voltron series debuting in June, we can't think of a better time for this partnership."
