Maybe because it had a relatively strong lead female character, maybe because it had some hunky dudes, maybe because everyone just likes lions, I'm not sure, but when I was growing up, Voltron was one of the few series the girls in my class liked almost as much as the boys.
Growing up in the 1980s, Voltron was a big part of my childhood. There was Voltron with the lions and then Voltron with the vehicles. Another big part of my childhood was Disney, and there wasn't a Disney Voltron. Until now.
From 2012, let's take a trip back to the 1980s, and what it was like to be a kid drawing the stuff you were into.

The manufacturers of this $15 have simply called it "VolTRON", which I suppose makes more sense than my first attempt, "VOLTR2N".
We usually enjoy the latest SwizzBeats track as much as the next pop rap follower. However, the brand new Voltron Force theme song, which turns our favorite kitty robot into some sort of horrible buzz verb, has us worried.
The combined might of the Voltron license and the publishing powers of THQ will bring the 80s cartoon to video game form this year, according to a report from Variety.
Voltron was an 1980s American reworking of Japanese anime series Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV and Go Lion into a single, seemingly seamless program. The mastermind behind Voltron, Peter Keefe, passed away on May 27.
The Hollywood big screen adaptation of iconic 1980s television cartoon Voltron has been languishing in development hell for years. After several script drafts, the live-action movie version is heading back to square one.
Remember that painfully adorable Voltron cosplayer Ash posted about a few days ago? Well, that was nothing.
It's a Voltron game! Yeeessssssss. And it's for the iPhone! Hrm.
Blizzard pulls no punches this April 1st, with not one but four different pranks featuring pimped mounts, a new Diablo III class, the biggest StarCraft 2 unit ever created, and PVP dance battles.
