Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles 10 out of 5 stars

Great cartoon that needed direction

Reviewed by: Ducky, April 02, 2004

Frankenstein Jr. was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. Some of it had to do with rarely getting to see it, I always had Saturday catechism and missed many episodes. But what I did see fascinated me. The drawing of the main character, colors, and deep and powerful voice of Ted Cassidy (Lurch from the Addams Family) were a perfect combination for this huge robotic hero. I can still picture Frankenstein Jr. slamming his fists together and the powerful bolts of electricity that resulted in the promos for the show. Frankenstein Jr's friend and co-creator, a young boy named Buzz Conroy, also provided a connection that a child could identify with.
The cartoon's only flaw was that it didn't seem to know what to do with this great character. It had this awesome hero, dramatic music and a fairly serious plot, but would then suddenly veer into the silly (much like the goofy show "The Impossibles" the heroes it shared the title with) usually when fighting the villain. If the show would have been written more like Jonny Quest (whom Buzz Conroy mildly resembled in many ways) I think it would have been remembered better.
