James Bond, Jr.

Show Summary

James Bond, Jr. was an animated spinoff, from the famous franchise, that centered around 007's nephew. When the series was created in 1991, the James Bond franchise was in its infamous limbo period following the release of Licence to Kill in 1989 and preceding the release of Goldeneye in 1995. Failing to remain true to the 1967 James Bond Junior 003 1/2 novel (By R.D. Mascott), the TV show is as follows: Warfield Academy is a high security college for relatives of Secret Service employees. 007's teenage newphew (also called James) is there, as is Felix Leiter's son, and Q's grandson. When they are not in class, they're battling the forces of S.C.U.M., an international organisation resembling S.P.E.C.T.R.E. in many ways. The show featured a number of updated versions of classic Bond villains. Examples - Jaws was featured in this show, but unlike the movies in which the man had a mouthful of steel teeth, this guy had robot jaws, his whole mouth made of steel! The Late-Scaramanga's assistant, Nick Nack, made a come back too. Goldfinger and his henchman, Oddjob, also appeared in this series. While Goldfinger and Oddjob looked pretty much identical to their silver screen counterparts, Oddjob's taste for clothes had changed radically. Whereas in the film he was dressed as a formal butler, here Oddjob sports a metallic visor over his eyes, a purple and yellow tracksuit and a gold chain bearing the letter 'OJ', though he still used his razer-rimmed hat. Dr. No was also featured in this, but due to his little 'sinking feeling' in the radioactive water (see the movie) his skin is now green. He still has robotic hands but, like Oddjob, his clothes have changed radically; in the film he wore plain smocks, now he prefers red and purple jumpsuits with massive shoulders and boots. As well as the classic Bond villains, a few new ones where introduced, they are as follows - Skullcap, a S.C.U.M. assassin, a man with a steel lid built into his skull encasing his brain. Baron von Skarin was a wealthy arms dealer often bent on extortion. Dr. Derange, a lazy-eyed mad scientist who's crazy over plutonium. Captain Walker D. Plank, a pirate bent on controlling the world oceans. Ms Fortune and her butler, Snuffer. The Worm, a subterranean lunatic. GoldieFinger, Goldfinger's daughter (!). And of course, the lead villain, the evil S.C.U.M. Lord, the head of Saboteurs and Criminals United in Mayhem. His only love, apart from power itself, was an aggressive white dog, the exact opposite of what Ernst Stavro Blofeld had. Oh, and let's not forget Trevor Noseworthy IV, a fellow student determined to get Young Bond expelled from Warfeild...

THEME SONG LYRICS:
(BOND, James Bond Jr)
No one can stop him but S.C.U.M. always tries
Young Bond cuts through each web of spies
He learned the game from his Uncle James
Now he's there to remain,
James Bond (BOND, James Bond Jr)
Look out he's coming through
He's gotta job to do
While he rescues the girl,
James Bond Jr chases S.C.U.M, (James Bond Jr chases S.C.U.M)
Around the World.
