This robot looks like the Lunar Module on legs. Maybe we send one to the Moon?

It brings tears to my eyes, because I DID have a dad like that.  He taught me the resistor color code before most kids learn to read.  He died much too soon.  I still miss him.

@OldSchoolTwidget: I still miss him.

I know what you mean -- my dad passed away in Jan 2000 -- at least we all got to see the start of the new millennium together -- even now when I'm in a book store and I see a book on say "silent movies" or "variety hall theater" I think to myself "I'll get that for dad" and then I remember that he's gone...

That's right. I knew this whole thing sounded familiar. I've seen that one. And no, I'm not really a Johnny Quest fan, but I do have kids that are. :)

Shoot...I avidly watched Johnny Quest as a kid.  As an older kid :-)  (and somewhat later; you can date that by knowing when JQ was on the air...) I bought the complete DVD set.  Now I can watch Dr. Benton Quest whup up on that big old spider whenever I want :-)

I hang my head in shame to report that I don't recall even hearing the name "Johnny Quest" ... but I was brought up in the UK, so maybe that explains my lack of world knowledge :-)

I don't know about you, but thsi would have blown my mind as a kid. To see stuff like this in movies and cartoons, then to see someone actually building it!
