to:

Added DiffLines:

* AnimationBump: The intro to the series uses more professionally done animation.


Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* JobStealingRobot: "The Per-Bots of Dr. Lobe" is about a MadScientist planning to replace human sports with spectacles played by his creations. The guys are determined to stop him not just because of their pride as pro athletes, but from the sound of things, what jobs might be next if the Per-Bots prove themselves better.


* TheRecordingKnewYouWouldSayThat: Dr. Lobe is so smart he can anticipate exactly what the [=ProStars=] will say in response to the message he sends them.

* ShoePhone: The guys use lots of spy-type gadgets built into common-looking sports equipment. In "The Per-Bots of Dr. Lobe", Michael even uses a communicator built into the bottom of one sneaker.


* ForTheEvulz: Most of the villains can be likened to the villains of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'', for example.

to:

* CuttingTheKnot: One episode had the heroes trying to turn off a force field in which a girl was being held. They fed a lot of data into their computer like the girl's weight. The computer's answer? Pull the plug.
* ForTheEvulz: Most of the villains can be likened to the villains of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'', for example. A few cases though did include an actual motive like driving inhabitants off an oil field.


''[=ProStars=]'' was a SaturdayMorningCartoon, produced for Creator/{{NBC}} by Creator/DiCEntertainment, starring UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan, [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} Bo Ja]][[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague ckson]] and [[UsefulNotes/{{NHL}} Wayne Gretzky]]. It ran 13 episodes in 1991. The show stars animated versions of Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson and Wayne Gretzky, who all [[TheyFightCrime fight crime]] and [[GreenAesop save the environment]]. In most episodes, they'd get called in to save the day by a kid, get some sports-related weapons and battle a villain who is wreaking havoc [[ForTheEvulz just because they can]]. Some episodes dealt with things like the larceny of the Stanley Cup, or kids in gangs, for example. At the end of each episode, the athletes themselves explained the lesson in a live-action clip.
