Who doesn't remember Street Sharks? The four brothers were transformed by the nefarious Dr. Luther Paradigm with his "gene-slammer," a machine that can combine the genetic makeup of aquatic animals with people to make horrifying, yet jawsome monstrosities. You could say the evil professor caused a paradigm shift in the way the field of genetics was applied. The four end up becoming super-heroes or some crap like that, and the evil Dr. Paradigm is combined with a piranha after which he becomes half-man, half-piranha. He also adopts a new name...Dr. Piranoid.
The show was okay, but the toys were INSANELY popular. It's little wonder why. The commercial above just makes them seem so cool. I mean, do you hear that wailing guitar pumping out generic 90s pseudo-metal? And look at the way Jab caught the spear in his mouth? Little kids were powerless against such high-caliber commercials.
Wanna know what else was cool about this series?
