I somehow thought the babies would be turned into Juralian babies. But I don't know if Juralians have babies, or even genders for that matter.

There's a piece of dust or something on the bottom of the animation cel where Chargeman Ken flies around in his ship and it's distracting.

When older cartoons started getting remastered for HD, dusts on cels REALLY became visible. They're especially noticeable if the background is dark.

your quick work made everyone happy

you know, except the apparently large number of parents whose kids were already... uh, dastardly plotted. It's not really clear what happened to those babies, and ken just says they were deformed... which could mean basically anything, including "had too many toes"

Hospital episode - The part with the Juralians starting to freak out as they realized the hospital was deserted and then suddenly Ken laughing and [stock transformation sequence] popping up out of nowhere feels like it was lifted straight out of a horror movie. And then there was a severe mood whiplash as he's suddenly racing all over the place in one night to save Christmas foil the Juralian plot.

Hijacking episode - So... wait, if all of the other passengers on the plane were Juralians except for the hijackers and Ken's family... why did they even bother with an ambush? The fake priest mentions that they bought all their tickets in advance... why even bother with buying tickets? I mean, we can assume that they also replaced the pilot and/or co-pilot as well, given that one of the hijackers comes fleeing from the cockpit, clearly scared out of his wits. This is another one of those "I don't think the Juralians thought this all the way through" episodes. We know that they're capable of both building robots and infiltrating human society fairly easily; why not just replace the entire crew with robots, have them drug the in-flight meal so that Ken gets knocked out, and then just crash the plane?

Episode 36: "Oh yeah, the Juralians had a king or something."

Episode 37: Holy shit, Ken caused a plane crash.

I wouldn't be surprised if Chargeman Ken was always this way :-P

as for the hijacking episode (and boy is that dated), BARICAN DOESN'T FORGIVE.

OPERATION JURALIAN FAKE FRIENDSHIP

I'm sure it will go just as well as every other time they pretended to be a kid. Good job with the originality in your plants, Juralians.

They’re already running out of plots and having to recycle ideas :-I

Also I am way behind on this

Caron and Barican finally go to jail for their multiple crimes.

I like the kid with the glove on his head. The background characters on this show are amazing.

They really dropped the ball on lip sync in this one. And coloring stuff in. I guess they spent too much on the new transformation sound effects.

Very obviously missing a line here.

How to Kill Chargeman Ken in Four Simple Steps:

1. Pretend to be human and gain his trust and friendship
2. Betray him and knock him out.
3. Put him in a situation where he will be saved by his robot and/or sister because you forgot about them and/or don't consider them an actual threat to your plans.
4. Die horribly because you didn't just kill him immediately when you had the perfect chance to do so.

Simple! :spike101:

FWIW, they were dissecting him. I guess that's smart, too, since he clearly outclasses them in every possible fight.

They probably wanted to prove Chargeman Ken has no heart.

Yeah, but in general, when you dissect something, you wait until after it's already dead to do so.

dissecting something still alive is called vivisection :twience:

Tell the Juralians, not me. I actually rewrote my previous post several times trying to figure out a way to bring up that point and connect it to my other point, but couldn't think of a good way to phrase it. :-I
