Academy movie series was so popular in the 1980ís, that an
animated series was produced in 1988 (it ran for two seasons).
There were a number of new characters added to the cartoon
series, such as the crime boss Kingpin, as well as a group of
talking police dogs known as the Canine Corps. Like with many
cartoons of the 80ís, a toy line was also produced, this time by
Kenner. Kenner released a number of action figures and play
sets based this animated series, and some of the characters
included Carey Mahoney, Tackleberry, Larvell Jones, and
Kingpin. Vehicles included the Crazy Cruiser and the Crash
Cycle, and play sets included the Precinct Police Station and
the Copper Corner.
