Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced for French television, the half-hour animated series Martin Mystery detailed the adventures of teenagers Martin and Diana, both students at Torrington academy. Although they didn't get along too well, Martin and Diana managed to forget their differences long enough to solve paranormal mysteries on behalf of the secret organization THE CENTER. In this pursuit, the two protagonists were aided by Java, a caveman who'd been "lost in time." Since most of the episodes found the characters drenched in slime, it is harldy surprising that the series made its American debut on Nickelodeon, the "sliming" capital of the cable-TV world. Martin Mystery was based on the comic book by Alfredo Castelli.
