Synopsis:

 


 
Seized with a serious case of Pac-Man Fever in 1982, ABC released two (count ‘em, two!) series featuring that omnivorous - and at that time omnipresent - yellow orb of video game fame. The Pac-Man/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show aired immediately before Pac-Man in the network’s Saturday morning lineup.

Joined by Ms. Pac-Man, who was now Pac's wife, as well as the newly created Baby-Pac, Chomp Chomp the dog, and Sour Puss the cat, the Pac family lived in Pac-Land (making "Pac" the most overused word since "Smurf"). On Pac-Man's own show, the family also gained a powerful friend in Super Pac, who was the star of his own arcade game.

Near their home was the Power Forest, where Pac-Man worked as chief of security, guarding the precious power pellets that grew there. These pellets, the source of all Pac-power, were coveted by the evil Mezmaron, who constantly sent his ghosts Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, and Sue after them.

Unlike the arcade game, Pac-Man would only attack the ghosts defensively, since this was an era of toned-down violence in cartoons. When necessary, Packy would chomp at the ghosts and force them to disappear, until they could recharge themselves with a new ghost costume from Mezmaron's wardrobe closet.

The second season paired repeats of Pac-Man with another 80's fad-inspired cartoon, Rubik the Amazing Cube, for The Pac-Man/Rubik the Amazing Cube Hour.

In an odd case of game becomes 'toon becomes game, the animated Pac-Man spawned a video game of its own, titled Pac-Land. Though graphically superior, the side-scrolling adventure game never caught on in the same way as its simpler, yet undeniably infectious predecessor.
