What can you say about a cartoon in which the super-ultra-bland teen adventurer hero has not one, not two, but three annoying jabber-happy sidekicks? This Disney dud would like to be Treasure Island crossed with Star Wars, but it features the spectacle of triple-masted pirate ships in space and not a heck of a lot else.
