Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rescue Heroes is a line of toys from Fisher-Price that was introduced in 1999. Rescue Heroes depicts various rescue personnel and their equipment. An animated television series has also been developed with the line of toys. In total, there are three seasons of the Rescue Heroes TV show. Rescue Heroes has aired on CBS Kidshow (1999-2000), Kids' WB (2001-2003), Teletoon (1999-2009), and qubo (2009-present). There has also been one movie released in 2003, called Rescue Heroes: The Movie. The animated series strives to teach kids proper safety techniques and how to deal with issues, such as bullying. Some episodes are intended for a more mature audience. Such episodes would include showing things like how to put out grease fires and unplugging electrical equipment during a lightning storm. A young child would not be able to do either of these things, which shows why these episodes are intended for a more mature audience. At the end of almost every episode, there would be safety tips, some that are intended for a more mature audience (e.g. putting out a grease fire), and after the safety tips they would usually end the episode with the slogan, Think like a Rescue Hero, think safe.

Background

The Rescue Heroes is an international organization that, along with local authorities, helps rescue animals and people from certain natural or man-made disasters. It is unclear exactly where the Rescue Heroes make their base of operations, but the animated series suggests the U.S. Pacific Northwest, or the Canadian Rockies, as a likely place.

Main

The Main Characters are listed along with a description of the character and the name of the person who does the voice for that character, in brackets and bolded. All the main characters listed are normally stationed at the Mountain Action Command Center in the TV series.

  • Billy Blazes (Norm Spencer) - Billy, a firefighter, is the leader of the Rescue Heroes, and helped choose the other members of his team. In the animated series, he has a brother Bobby as well as a father, both of which he has an uneasy relationship, due to his decision to become a firefighter rather than a construction worker. He was first discovered after saving a group of children trapped in a carnival ride that was set ablaze. It has been shown in the TV Series that Billy's family hails from Quebec City, Quebec[1].
  • Wendy Waters (Lenore Zann) - Wendy, also a firefighter, is effectively the second in command. Her father, Warren, appears as a Rescue Hero, working at their orbiting space station. It was through a combination of a news report about a factory being set ablaze and through her father that lead her to trying out for the Rescue Heroes.
  • Jake Justice (Martin Roach) - Jake, a police officer, had his start as a Rescue Hero when he had caught a wanted criminal after a televised car chase that made national headlines. He is typically seen with his Justice Cycle, a custom-made motorcycle.
  • Richmond "Rocky" Canyon (Joe Motiki) - Rocky, an African American mountain climbing specialist, is the youngest member of the Rescue Heroes, having started at the start of the series. Because of this, he often leads to his teammates into further trouble due to his inexperience. When Billy had once thought about quitting as a Rescue Hero, it was ultimately Rocky, through an audition video, that convinced him to stay on, cementing Billy's decision to hire Rocky. It has been shown in the TV Series that his hometown is in Oklahoma, and that his father had recently died[2].
  • Ariel Flyer (Lisa Messinger, later Deborah Odell) - Ariel, a flight and wildlife specialist of Spanish descent, is the second youngest member of the Rescue Heroes. She was once a stunt pilot who had a rival in Avery Ater. However, Avery's lack of concern for safety has led to Ariel saving them on numerous occasions.
  • Jack Hammer (Rod Wilson) - Jack, a construction worker hailing from Texas, was originally a contractor hired to build the Rescue Heroes base of operations, but had saved a fellow construction worker in a crane accident. Because of this, he was given a tryout with the Rescue Heroes. Jack has a younger sister named Jillian (Jill), who is a member of the Texas Fire Brigade.
