Well Fiddle Sticks!!!
I went and drew everything and then found out it was a 70's cartoon, but I found it on an 80's cartoon website. I did watch it in the 80's when I was just a wee lad too. So I count it as 80's-ish. I knew I should have stuck with, My Little Pony, gosh dang it!
Either way it was a fantasticly bad show. The people would fight off Alien invaders with sling shots. The rhino looking thing (Tundro)would shoot rocks from its head and the dragon (Zok)had lazer eyes and a energy beam tail. Gleep and Gloop were blobs that could take the shape of anything and the rock ape (Igoo) would just hit and fall on stuff. I didn't have time to draw the main guy (lord Zandor)..maybe another time.
This is the original cartoon.

I totally remember The Herculoids! Funny how much Gleep and Gloop look like a certain Blooregard Q. Kazoo, well the general shape anyhow. I wonder if the Foster's team used them as inspritaion, hmmm. Great job!

That's a pretty good interpretation. Did you pick up any of the new toys based on the cartoon? I never saw the show. I really don't understand how those globs are part of the same universe, but it sure does make it interesting.

very cool! The Herculoids were the best! Zok is definitely my fave in this one, I think he came out the strongest overall

You know, I don't think I ever sat and watched an entire episode.

Very well executed nonetheless.

I remember this gang of misfits too. Such a strange cast. Great take on these guys especially Tundro - even though he's only one color, he still seems to look meaner than the original. Even Zok has more shape. Nice job!
