There’s tons of great television cartoons here at Andertoons. Just sayin’.

I’d never heard of Widget before getting these Trading Card Treats, and I’m assuming you haven’t either. A quick primer:
Widget, the World Watcher is an animated television series which debuted in September 29, 1990 until it ended in June 6, 1994.
The show focused on a 4 foot tall, purple alien from the Horsehead Nebula named Widget who could shapeshift (usually by spinning like a top into different forms. In early episodes he seems to still be getting used to his power). He and a group of young, human friends; brothers, Brian, Kevin and their teenage sister Kristine, would go through a number of adventures to protect the natural environment from those who wish to plunder or harm it. Later on they were joined by (fellow shapeshifter) Half-Pint, Widget’s mischievous, overly-curious, hyperactive cousin. Widget is frequently accompanied by the Mega Brain, an extremely intelligent but somewhat clumsy being who appears as a floating head (with a transparent cranium) and floating hands.
