"The Key to Vector Sigma" and "War Dawn" were also some of my favorites to watch on Rhino's VHS tapes.
RIP, Mr. Wise.

Even the pilots he wrote for all-but-forgotten properties are worth a search on Youtube. Whether goofy as heck (Battletoads), or almost too dark for kids (Shadow Strikers, the only toy-commercial toon I've seen that immediately establishes the main villain having killed the lead hero's wife), it's like he just could not run out of story ideas for translating any toy or game brand into animation.
I've been enjoying his work since age 5, and can't think of any other scribe whose passing would sadden me more. My condolences to all his loved ones.
