When Peter Darrow (voiced by Neilson Ross) looked into the heavens one night with his telescope, he had no idea what he was about to witness.
Mondraggorr (William Woodson), an evil creature who planned to gain omnipotence and control of the Universe with a magic “Pyramid of Power”, was dismayed to find the pyramid rebelling against his control, shattering, and falling down to Earth.
Seeing the explosion, Peter and his sister Peggy (Katie Leigh) went to track down a piece of the fallen pyramid and ran into a hapless trio of talking pandas who joined the children in a race against Mondraggorr to see who could put the pyramid back together first and restore its power.
Although the pandas were hindered somewhat by their personality quirks, they could unite and become “Poppapanda,” a being that could stall some of the bad magic Mondraggorr used on unsuspecting Earthlings in his quest.
This creation was the brainchild of ex-CBS President Fred Silverman’s Intermedia Entertainment.
