When I was a kid, I had an 8-track tape that had an episode of "The Shadow" and an episode of "Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy" on it. (Or, as the announcer put it, "Jack Armstrong! Jack Armstrong! Jack Armstrong! The Aaaaaaalllll-American Boy!")

The Shadow is familiar to most people I imagine, but if you're not an old-time radio enthusiast you might not know ol' Jack Armstrong. Jack was a clean-cut teenage football player who, by virtue of his globetrotting adventurer Uncle Jim, would go on all kinds of amazing adventures around the world while exhorting "all you fellas and girls" to eat Wheaties ("with lots of milk or cream and topped with your favorite fruit"). In a lot of ways, "Johnny Quest" was basically "Jack Armstrong, the Animated Series," if you see what I mean.

I don't remember much...Collapse )
