This would have been a hell of a continuation. Too bad it wasn’t picked up. I’ve got nothing against the reboot BSG. Heck I even met my wife at a Frack Party. For me, though, it just doesn’t compare with the original. Yes, I realize that the original show was goofy at times, and that’s ok. It still had it where it counted. The Second coming was Richard’s passion project, and I am only glad that he received a part to play in the reboot. So let’s drop the Felgercarb and enjoy what he left us.
I am watching this right now. The beginning is a bit silent, and I am not a fan of the font he uses, but tough it out and be both entertained and educated. Watch as the early days of animation specifically created to be televised unfold before you. I wrote this show off a while ago as just another cartoon mill show, but there is something special about it and I am going to dust off my copies and rewatch them.
We I first saw Jonny Quest, the show had been off the air for some time. I would place it around the late 70’s. It was a staple of Sunday viewing for a long time. Religion never played a big part in my life so Sunday morning cartoons were a must for me. It’s where I was exposed to such shows as George of the Jungle, King Kong, The Banana Splits (which was apparently a favorite of mine before I could speak), along with Jonny Quest.
I cannot recommend this documentary enough. Watch it now and visit the YouTube user’s page (ronvailvideos) and give his work a few more likes 🙂
