Key art robocop alpha commando
RoboCop: Alpha Commando was a short lived animated series based on the Orion Pictures film RoboCop and the series/films that followed in the 1980s-1990s. It was the second animated version of the character, following on from RoboCop: The Animated Series. The series premiered on September 7, 1998, and ran until February 3, 1999. It was the final animated series from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Animation (via their parent company's purchase of RoboCop distributor Orion).

As of 2016, none of the 40 episodes have been released onto Region 1 DVD.

The series is currently streaming on Hulu.


The series is set in the year 2030, and deals with RoboCop being reactivated after five years offline to assist a federal high-tech group, "Alpha Division" in their vigilance and struggle against DARC (Directorate for Anarchy, Revenge, and Chaos) a highly advanced terrorist organization and other forces of evil whenever that may be, globally or nationally.

The series shared many of the same writers who had contributed to the 1980s animated series, but had even less in common with the movies or television canon that it was based on, including the first animated series. The show also suffers from major continuity errors. In the first episodes we see RoboCop's son in his memories flashback and he appears to be around 10. We later see his son in the series, to be exactly the same age and even wearing the same clothing, as his memories. The absence of Anne Lewis was never explained.

Besides RoboCop himself, Sgt. Reed is the only character from the movies in the series.

Unlike the movies, and previous TV incarnations, RoboCop never takes off his helmet in Alpha Commando.

Between that, wondering why her partner is being awakened from a cryogenic sleep, and the many tasks in front of them, no thanks to DARC, this is turning out to be one VERY action-filled day...

After tackling a bomb, and taking the blunt of the ensuing explosion, RoboCop returns to his old Precinct, and is met by the fanfare of former-colleges.

RoboCop ends-up in the laboratory of cyborgress Marta Kludge, who is insistent on controlling RoboCop and planting a secret DARC directive into his program. The only problem, is that Miner and Neumeier will stop at no lengths to get THEIR comrade-back. In time, they do just that and create their own two-person rescue-party for RoboCop. Once there, they crush Kludge's plans, yet she escapes to destroy another day. But it seems as though the secret directive, in RoboCop, WAS successfully implanted...
