M.A.S.K. was a superb Saturday morning cartoon, shown just after The Racoons, which featured a bunch of middle-aged men who put on masks (no surprises there then) and suddenly became kind-of super heroes.They were most often involved in saving their own kids from someone's deadly clutches, and to do this they used a range of rather cool vehicles that featured special tools.I owned an orange jeep which, when you flicked a switch at the side, would fire a speedboat out of the front. I used to have competitions with my brother to see how far we could fire the boat, since the spring in the mechanism was lethal!The original M.A.S.K toys were released in 1985 and featured all sorts of characters and vehicles that were in the T.V series. Favourites included the green motorcycle, Condor the 4x4 jeep, Gator and the Ford Bronco Jackhammer.
