when Jonny Quest ruled

Now back when I was about six or seven years old, they had real cartoons like Jonny Quest! At least in my neighborhood, the world stopped for most of us if JQ came on. We were big into JQ; I even had one of those JQ Decoder rings you could send off for from P.F. Flyers (B.F. Goodrich). The only thing that could seriously compete with blocking out the rest of life to watch JQ was if one of my buddies showed up with his older brother’s BB gun (tough choice, but we went with the BB gun). It didn’t phase us if JQ was in production only one season (1964-1965) and we had to watch the same episodes over and over; JQ was just plain cool!
