Mighty Orbots

Japanese/American animated series about a group of 5 robots (Bo, Boo, Tor, Crunch and Bort) invented by a young Rob Simmons, member of the Galactic Patrol. Set out to defeat the evil Umbra (evil planet-sized bio-mechanical computer) of S.H.A.D.O.W., bent on controlling the universe.

I loved this show as a kid! Although it only lasted for one season mainly due to a lawsuit from the makers of Go Bots (not really sure why because the Orbots didn't even remotely resemble Go Bots), it remains one of my favorite shows from the 80's.
