A Pretty Decent Sci-Fi Cartoon
20 April 2003 | by sawyertomSee all my reviews

This was probably the second most and best action packed cartoon to Jonny Quest. It packed action, monsters, sci-fi and aliens into some short episodes. It wasn't bad actually. I liked its action and fast paced. I remember a teacher telling me this was one of the shows that made a lot of people decide to protest and gradually get rid of the more violent cartoon for the wussie cartoons of the late 1960's and early 1970's. I liked the Herculoids. I thought Zandor was pretty cool with his slingshot too.As a cartoon though, it really rocked. Besides being second to JQ in action and adventure isn't a bad thing.
