Professor Impossible cites "Of Mice and Men" as a reason for not wanting the mentally challenged Ned to babysit Rocket. This was a classic novel about a mentally challenged man who does not realize his own strength, often injuring or killing objects of his affection. See more »

An episode "impossible" to not enjoy...maybe...or you could just IGNORE ME!
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I won't go so far to say this is the best episode, it can certainly be considered the prototypical one in which to convert those who haven't heard about this most excellent series.

The plot? Well...

(deep breath) An "extra-galactic" Observer drops in on the Ventures as they discover an old tape of their father informing them of a special device he created and separated into four parts. In finding the parts, the Ventures run across some old friends, some old foes, & one deranged, drugged out Jonny Quest living in a bathysphere.

This is very funny stuff, particularly the "Observer" who stands 20ft tall and keeps screaming with his amplified voice, "IGNORE ME!!". Also, it appears that Doctor Venture's brother is doing quite well for himself judging from the first time we see him pop his head up.

I would recommend showing this one to your friends if they've never seen it before (though it does not have series regulars "The Monarch" or the husky-voiced Dr. Girlfriend).
