Next one was Johnny Quest because my real name is Johnny, Johnny Salley. To this day I still call everybody I meet, if I don't know your name, I'll yell Hadji, because I love Hadji in that situation. I love Johnny Quest. Some of the other ones: Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids was the ultimate cartoon for me. It came on in the afternoon on Saturdays around 12:30, so I watched it before I went back outside to play ball. I probably watched every Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids that you can possibly think of.
