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.

  • -It wasnt that bad

    Okay for all you purist out their you are forgetting that J B did have a half Japanese son by Kissy Suzuki after he lost his memory at the end of you Only Live Twice. The premise of J B Jr was that he was the nephew of J B not his son and that Bonds brother Donald I believe had named the boy after his uncle. Donald was a airlines pilot check out the book The Adventure of James Bond Jr oo3 and a half I read it while in grade school loved it.moreless
  • If James Bond was an only child, then how did he have a nephew?

    I would watch James Bond, Jr. before I would go off to school. The show was fun to watch as I am now a big James Bond fan. The series did have many plot holes, but as a kid I didn't even notice them.
  • Nostalgia!

    I loved this cartoon as a child...and I still do now! Not many episodes were released in the UK but I have 3 VHS tapes. I also had the IQ, Jumpsuit James, Coach Mitchell, Dr. No, Dr, Derange, Odd Job and Jaws figures along with the Sports car!!! The theme tune is pretty sweet too, all in all one of my childhood favourites.
  • I loved this show growing up and I still enjoy it today.

    I loved this show growing up and I still enjoy it today. It doesn\'t succeed on any level other than being a childrens series and I think a lot of people expected more from it than this (being part of the Bond franchise). But, taken on face value it has a lot to offer. In fact just try watching it directly after a present day animated junior spy series (there\'s lot to cose from!) and you\'ll truelly appreciate the well writen character development found in James Bond Jr.



    This show also has a stuble way of playing with it\'s own formate and yet keeping the viewer in familiar ground that I haven\'t seen as well done on any other series.moreless

    These were dark days. If you ever have the misfortune of stumbing across this little trove of tripe - hit Mute followed by an aversion of the eyes at lightning speed. From this stance guess which is the channel up button and press it until you're convinced you've managed to successfully depart from Jr.'s company.
