Toxic Crusaders

It’s clean up time!

Toxic Crusaders is a 1990s animated TV series based on The Toxic Avengers films. Main character Toxie is a grotesque mutant endowed with superhuman powers, who along with allies like No-zone and Major Disaster battle against villains Czar Zosta, Dr. Killemoff, Bonehead and others. Tie-ins include a Marvel comic book run, an action figure toy line and video games.

TVTA has managed to get its hands on these three terrifically toxic ads from Denmark! Big thanks to Jaltesorensen for sharing the images.

And this next one, very roughly translated as:

“A NEW super hero, raging in your city now”

TOXIE: Good day to all our millions of Toxic-fans!

KID: I don’t know which smells worse… Him or my diaper!

    Haha, I totally remember these!!! WOW. I probably would have lived the rest of my life not thinking of these thighs again had I not seen this post. I love it! Thanks for the fantastic and totally unexpected trip down memory lane.

      Thank you, you’re welcome! I only have vague memories of them from the animated series and probably some books or trading cards. I didn’t know about the toys until I saw the ads. I think they’re brilliant. Very colourful and crazy!

        It was the toys I remember! I think my brother and I had a few of them and, because of their look, we used them to fight out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. I don’t know if I knew anything of their “official” story but I do remember using them to stage environmentally-tinged battles with the Turtles.

    If you had told me when I first watched The Toxic Avenger (and part 2) when I was a kid (unbeknownst to my parents) that there would be a cartoon featuring the character marketed towards kids, I would have pissed my pants laughing. It’s still surreal.
