This is the first time I saw those cartoons in color!
I suspect the Suck Fairy has gotten to them, but I may have to rewatch some of those at home.
I remember one really odd scene where Poindexter and Felix find what they fear at first is The Master Cylinder. It turns out to be unoccupied . . . "an empty shell." Which made Kid Me wonder, was Master Cylinder a robot who upgrades himself now and then, or a cyborg, or just a guy who lives like a hermit crab, discarding his metal suit now and then?
"Trans-Lux." I think they may have imported Speed Racer. (Wiki, Wiki). Yea! Trans-Lux was a movie equipment pioneer who ran theaters, and distributed Felix and Mighty Hercules* and "Americanized" Speed Racer.
*"Hercules! Hero of song and story.
Hercules! Bearer of ancient glory
Kindness in his eyes
Iron in his thighs
Virtue in his heart
Fire in every part!
Of the mighty . . .
. . . Hercules!"
That's from memory. I bet that's close, though.
