Old Cartoons Rule!
This may seem rather frivolous, but before going off to various Scouting activities, I spent some of my own allowance on the DVD set of Jonny Quest – the Complete First Season. I loved the show when I was a kid, and I have to say that seeing these episodes again is better than seeing them the first time. I’m not sure there has been a cartoon series since then that has been as cool and has been done as well as Jonny Quest. The interesting thing is that my four boys, ranging from age 13 to age 5, are absolutely mesmerized. Despite the series being 40 years old, my kids find it every bit as captivating as I did as a 60s youngster.
