The Bionic Six
was an 80's
cartoon co-created by LJN Toys that was produced in 1987
and ran for two years. The basic plot was that Jack Bennet ( Bionic-1 ) had bionic powers
and fought crime without his family suspecting anything
. . . until their plane crashed
and they were saved by also being turned bionic
. The family goes on to fight crime
and tell wisecracks
until the show was cancelled. The show was shortly revived in the late 90's
