In recent times I have watched about five episodes on the internet but all five have now been deleted. What is it about this show? It keeps getting away from us!
I am no expert on animation so I don't feel I can judge this series on those grounds. However, I know a lot about quality voice artists, good sci-fic sound effects and loud 1960s music...this series does wonders in those three areas! One regular voice artist - Marvin Miller - was also the voice of Robby The Robot in Forbidden Planet (1956) and it is a rather odd experience suddenly finding out The Chief is Robby.
I agree with the posters who are comparing this to Irwin Allen sci-fic of the 1960s. In fact, during recent viewings of Fantastic Voyage, I started calling it "Irwin Allen: The Cartoon". And I might add, the above mentioned sci-fic sound effects did double time on Irwin Allen television as well.
PS How many episodes did Irwin-writer William Welch write?
