I never saw Atom Ant growing up. I wish I had, as I really enjoy the cartoon now. Had I see it as a pre-teen kid, I'm I would have enjoyed it, just like the Impossibles and Frankenstein, Jr. It's not quite as fun as those, but it's still quite enjoyable.
Here's an episode where Atom helps a TV hero act like a real hero for his fans. At least he stays humble for his fans. If it had been a 25 minute show he would have had his pride go before a fall.
