Saturday Morning Cartoon of the 1980s. Starred comic book heroes Flash Gordon, The Phantom, Mandrake, Lothar and their children. The team trained inside a holodeck underneath a hollowed-out volcano in order to battle Ming the Merciless (and, improbably, his son) and their polyagonal minions, made from ice.

Defenders of the Earth! Defenders!

Out of the sky
His rockets ignite
Jets into battle
Flying faster than light
FLASH GORDON!

Lord of the jungle
The hero who stalks
The beasts call him brother
The ghost who walks
THE PHANTOM!

Defenders of the Earth! Defenders!

Master of magic spells and illusion
Enemies crumble in fear and confusion
MANDRAKE!

Defenders of the Earth! Defenders!

His strength is a legend
His skills conquer all
Under his power
We never will fall
LOTHAR!

Defenders of the Earth! Defenders!

With our new young heroes
Proving their worth
