This was a cartoon TV show from the 80's or early 90's.

There were 3 different sets of robotic suits one small, one medium and a large one. The small one would go inside the medium one, and then the medium would go inside the larger one. I believe one of the suits had a football (NFL) as a "weapon".

What was the show called?


This could be Gordian Warrior (as suggested by Valorum):

  • it originally aired in Japan from 1979 to 1981, and was later dubbed and aired in other countries
  • the protagonist pilots three robots, which assemble Matryoshka-style

The pilot Daigo Otaki controls a small almost human-sized robot container named Protteser. Each time Protteser is in trouble, he jumps into the next biggest robot container named Delinger. Then finally the largest container is Garbin.
(quote from Wikipedia)

  • the smaller robot is American football-themed, with a helmet and a weaponized oval-shaped football
