TechnoRetro Dads: Jonny Quest and the Return of Amazing Stories

by TechnoRetro Dads

In the mid-80s, Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories was a weekly treat for fans of the far-out and freaky with its John Williams’ theme and oddball anthology style.  Every Monday night brought another mini-movie as science fiction crossed over with comedy, horror, drama, or fantasy.  Now that it’s back on AppleTV+, shazbazzar and JediShua renew their fervor for the series as the “third season” picks up where we left off more than thirty years ago.

Don’t miss out on this AMAZING episode featuring more than just Amazing Stories (as if that isn’t enough).  Prepare for the best as the past catches up to the future in 77 minutes of nonstop prattling with shazbazzar and JediShua.

  • In TechnoRetro news, Amazon and Netflix announce continuations of series from days gone by as Disney+ evidently nixes another potential Tron expansion.  
  • More cereal cartoon mascots are cast aside as sugary cereals continue to lose favor with parents (while one guy capitalizes on the shift toward “healthy” cereals).  
  • The ‘Dads discover that adventure cartoon Jonny Quest was actually prime time fare in its original run instead of something to be enjoyed with a bowl of cereal on Saturday Mornings.  
  • Travel the “Road to the Empire Strikes Back” with shazbazzar and JediShua for a brief excursion to The Muppet Show.
