Watched Jonny Quest

Randy, I really miss you. You were by friend since BSA in 6th grade. Now, on Good Friday, you didn’t call back. I am only able to play Atelier Iris Eternal Mana. I am approx at the beginning. I learned that you can get free elements by smashing it with a alchemist mace. It’s a high res 2D RPGs with 2.5D backgrounds. The story line is okay. The anime inspired vector art is cute. It’s a story line an average 14 yr old would think is cool. I gave this game a chance because it’s there even if there are much better games.

Yesterday, I decided to watch 1965 Jonny Quest episodes I have on VHS. It’s true you got Jonny, the protagonist, Race, the ex-CIA agent, Dr. Quest, the brilliant scientist, Hadji, the adopted Indian, and Bandit the family bulldog in exotic Cold War era locations. I watched 8 or 9 episodes before stopped playing it. The VHSs is old enough that it gets off track at moments (air pockets most likely). I taped this before it aired on Boomerang during the 3 day marathon sometime in 1996.

There is a 26 episode DVD box set of Jonny Quest for $29.99. It’s even digitally remastered, much better then low-res VHS. I am undecided if I want it because it’s sort of waste. It got good reviews at 1964 is suppose to be the best. I taped all these episodes on three blank VHS tapes on lowest quality. My favorite must’ve been “The Robot Spy” Quite interesting.
