I have a link to an Arabic language version of the cartoon (screenshots below) and I've looked all over the Internet but with no luck at all. This film is 82 minutes long. I recently watched it and it was Arabic dubbed, I tried to reach the uploader and know the real name of it but he unfortunately didn't answer. The credits were cut from the video so I couldn't tie it to any studio or year or cast names.

I saw it once when I was just a little kid back in 1994. I know I know I'm too old now, but some old shows just remind us of how the 90s were the best years of 20th century. It's maybe a 80s cartoon.

    yep the literal translation for " فرقة القوة " is task force , Arabs will never translate any anime or cartoon the way it should be . – Hardcore_Player Dec 27 '18 at 4:14
  • @Hardcore_Player The 90s were the best years of the 20th century only in the opinions of those who were kids then. People who were kids in the the 80s often think the 80s were the best years of the century, people who were kids in the the 70s often think the 70s were the best years of the century, etc. If you find a centenarian to talk to they might claim the 20s were the best years of the 20th century. But I admit the 90s were the most scientifically advanced decade of the 20th century, so that is one objective standard that could be used to claim they were the best decade. – M. A.

  • @M.A.Golding - That's why it's not uncommon to have TV shows set 20-30 years in the past. Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and That 70s Show are some of the most popular ones. – RDFozz Dec 27 '18 at 16:46

This is the pilot episode for PowerMasters: World Defence Corps, a short-lived TV show that flopped so badly that the entire world forgot about it.

Assuming the pilot was well received (spoiler, it wasn't), the intention was to chop this into four individual episodes.

Basically it was a 90 minute toy catalogue.

    Good luck getting hold of a copy in English. For some reason the show had awful marketing but amazing lawyers who're still policing any uploads. – Valorum Dec 27 '18 at 4:41

    @Hardcore_Player - I did a search for "World Defense Corps", started excluding duplicates and obvious dead-ends using the -NOT feature on Google and found this on about page 12; worthpoint.com/worthopedia/… – Valorum Dec 27 '18 at 4:47
