This show didn't insult a kid's intelligence.
7 February 2007 | by stumpmee77See all my reviews

Next to Jonny Quest, this was the first cartoon I could recall before or since that didn't continuously waste time telling me what the people/creatures were going to do. Don't these action-oriented cartoon makers of the present day realize that the bulk of the fun is in seeing the resolution happen not laying out the scenario? Oftentimes I was riveted surprised cheered over the victories the principles had over the bad guys. You weren't let in on this menagerie's thought processes other than their characteristic sounds which could have meant anything (Or Tundro's occasionally triumphant smile). When resurrected in the 80's they tried to make some herculoids puppy-dog cute (particularly my favorite the once aloof, brutal to the bad guys Zok which irritated me)and toned down on the violence and make Zandor's family more like us American Earthlings. But who cares it was still good versus bad and not spoiling the surprises of what these adorable creatures did.
