|"Holy crap. Who knew that supervillains and arch nemeses need to take out patents! I guess it would be a pain to be sued while trying to take over the world. I found some video, will add to the article. Jonny Quest was one of my favorites; my son likes it, too. The Robot Spy is one of my favorite episodes. Thanks!"
