Shocking confession #2! Watching the first few episodes on the Vol. 2 DVD (the one that I happened upon at the library), I wasn't immediately grabbed by it.
That changed with "Battle of the Planets."
Oh my God. XD
The engines! The rolling meteor! "I can see up his nose!" The soda can! The screaming guy holding onto the can! "What that do?! What that do?! What that do?!" The crying and the ice cream! "Get off my head!" The Butt of Mercury!
NOW I get it.
