Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: The Herculoids visit the Island of the Gravites (1967)

The Herculoids travel to the "Island of the Gravites" when a greedy despot (John Stephenson) decides to claim the gravite for himself, creating horrific monsters to do his bidding. Don Messick is heard as the islander who requests the aid of Zandor (Mike Road).

Typical fare.

Rating: B+.

It's ironic to have both John Stephenson and Mike Road voice characters in the same scene. The reason given for John losing his role as Benton Quest to Don Messick is because John's natural speaking voice carried the same pitch/tone as Mike Road's (voice of Race Bannon). Although John, obviously, isn't speaking in his natural voice here it's nevertheless ironic.

Hm, I'd have to go back and play an early episode of Jonny Quest, provided I can find one on either YouTube or Dailymotion, to verify your findings.
