A ''very'' short-lived but [[CultClassic well remembered]] comic book series created by Creator/LarryHama, with help from Michael Golden and Neal Adams, about the titular [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife green]] [[PettingZooPeople humanoid]] hare who fights to protect [[AnotherDimension his Universe]] from the scourge of the evil Toad Empire. Bucky is assisted by the [[BadassCrew crew of his ship]], the [[TheDreaded Righteous Indignation]], which is joined by a human ChildProdigy named [[TheEngineer Willy DuWitt]], who entered his universe through a PortalDoor that he accidentally helped create via [[NegativeSpaceWedgie simultaneous Photon Accelerator malfunction]], and [[TrappedInAnotherWorld is trapped until the event can be recreated]].

* ZergRush: The toad soldiers have training and hardware that's usually shown as being inferior to what Bucky's crew and lone ship can bring to bear in a fight. The main reason they're still dangerous is they're the only side to have an actual fleet and armies. To keep the amphibian menace from engulfing the Aniverse, by the end of the show SPACE has managed to assemble a grand total of three ships, each with a crew of about six members.

* {{Fanservice}}: There is a ''lot'' of fanservice in this cartoon, all over the place. Most of it comes from [[MsFanservice Jenny]].



* LighterAndSofter: While the [[AdaptationDisplacement better known]] TV series [[AnimatedAdaptation adaptation]] [[NobodyCanDie doesn't allow anyone to die]] on either side of the Toad Empire vs S.P.A.C.E. conflict, the original comic wasn't restricted by any [[MoralGuardians television censors]]. As a result, characters could -and often did- actually die. Poor Bruce got [[NotEnoughToBury reduced to ashes]] in the first issue. In addition, the TV series would [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar generally]] substitute [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment wacky and silly Toad TV commercials]] for [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]] and [[WarIsHell war devastation]].

* AIIsACrapshoot: The main villain, Komplex, is a sentient computer program that the toads designed to run their planet. Naturally it turned evil, brainwashed them, and sent them on the warpath. All for no readily apparent reason other than "AI is evil." Even the benevolent android Blinky is reprogrammed by Toadborg in one episode to sabotage the ship, but Bucky and the gang keep him on anyway. Blinky's central programming fought back against Toadborg's control and actually managed to break free.

Added DiffLines:

* ReligiousRobot: A.F.C. Blinky clearly believes in the religion that is practiced by the ''Righteous Indignation's'' crew, which appears to be an alternate universe version of Taoism (Blinky directly mentions [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/qMP6Omm8b9JFoIYTw69CwW5NF3mdyWxfZJL4zhLVY2ZDuulReNNI_1vP7WVFK3qSmdh-gIGI9fMA=s0 "Sacred Tao"]]).
