Before cartoons became for sissies.

Quote:
It was the first of several Hanna-Barbera action-based adventure shows – ... – and ran on ABC in prime time on early Friday nights for one season in 1964–1965.

Man, those were the days, for a first grader.

You are the perfect candidate to watch The Venture Bros. See what happens when you can legally mess with the old content. It'll bend your mind.

Even Bambi was violent by today's standards.

Yeah, those were the days. They used to carry that in afternoon cartoon time when I was a kid. Lots of action and futuristic tech, but it did always seem vaguely racist.

It's pretty obvious that the beard on Dr. Benton Quest is fake.

Yes there was 1 episode where Race made remarks about skin color, but in context he was posing as a god to intimidate them. I don't recall any other incidents.

I don't mind the DVD releases addressing this, but I hear from reviewers that they have been PC'd to death and not worth buying. One day I may rent them from Netflix, if I ever subscribe.
