Mortal Kombat: Defenders Of The Realm (1996)

Did you ever stop and say, “I really wish they’d make a bloodless, goreless, Saturday morning kids cartoon based on Mortal Kombat.” Too bad! They went ahead and made one anyway, and boy is it weird. With any worthy kid’s action cartoon, the team of good guys regularly square off against the bad guys, with Raiden sending the team out on missions in their toy aisle-friendly dragon planes as they battle Shao Khan’s forces. This USA Network cartoon did feature some voice-acting big guns, including Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman and Clancy Brown, who was recently cast as the villain in the Showtime reboot of Dexter.
