Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title character of this half hour animated series was a gigantic reconditioned robot. Young coach potato Coop had rescued the robot from a junkyard where it had been rusting away for 60 years, then retooled the pile of metal to create the world's largest plaything. At this point, young Kiva, a visitor from the future, appeared before Coop and demanded that he surrender Megas XLFR to her. According to Kiva, the robot was essential in saving the "present" universe from the villains of the future, headed by evil alien Glorft. Trouble was, Coop had so extensively modified Megas that he was the only person able to control the robot. Thus it was that Coop found himself in the unenviable position of potential savior of the universe, a burden he tried to share with both Kiva and his best pal Jamie. Created by George Krstic and Jody Schaeffer, Megas XLR had originally been titled LowBrow,but was rechristened on the eve of its Cartoon Network debut on May 1, 2004.
