When I was a child, this was my favourite TV show. I remember staying barefoot and thinly dressed outside in the cold so as to “catch my death”, miss school the following day and be able to watch the final (as I thought then) episode of the series.
Now, this Wikipedia article explains it all. Well, almost all. One thing for sure, it resolves the hot ongoing schoolyard debate back then on whether Zoltar was a woman or not. Apparently he was just a hermaphrodite alien lord, frequently reporting to a great demonic spirit on an oval screen, always with a blue foxhead mask and a tight latex outfit on, sending huge animal-shaped machines to destroy Earth.
With such role models to look up to, there is no wonder I became a cross-dressing sado-masochistic pagan into bestiality… Besides, there is a clearly deterministic link between stimuli and responses, right? (My own favourite character was Jason, the guy in the number 2 T-shirt. He was perenially in a foul mood, when he was not openly hostile towards Marc, the number 1. Ah!)
