38. M.A.S.K. (USA Network, 1985-1986)
Not to be confused with the Jim Carrey vehicle or the Cher/Eric Stoltz disgusto-face-gingey-nightmare movie, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) was billed as a cross between G.I. Joe and Transformers, which is just retarded because this was a whole other thing. Simply put, it was so flagrantly bootleg.
M.A.S.K. seriously made Gobots look legit. Matt Trakker battled V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhemâ€”another champion acronym), and even though the series only lasted a couple seasons it still became a wealth of inspiration for an awesome line of toys that they quickly recouped all show expenses on (about $20 bucks in today's money).
