Before there was WALKER, TEXAS RANGER, there was CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS! Back in 1986, martial arts superstar Chuck Norris hosted and starred in this action-adventure series about the animated adventures of Chuck Norris and Chuck Norris's sidekicks, like Kimo the Samurai Warrior, Tabe the Sumo Champion (he really likes food!) and the world's most annoying sidekick, Too Much.
Together, they are CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS, and they fight The Claw and The Super Ninja, who has a lifelong grudge against Chuck Norris for reasons never revealed, because CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS only lasted five episodes.
So was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they overanalyze every episode of this ridiculous 1980s kids show and ponder the lasting popularity of Chuck Norris himself.
