* PositiveDiscrimination: In the 2017 ''ComicBook/FutureQuest'' [[HannaBarberaBeyond comic book mini-series]], Buzz Conroy's father is killed off and replaced by his mother Professor Kim-Conroy, [[InformedAttribute who is retroactively declared to surpass both]] [[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest Doctor Benton Quest and Doctor Zin]] at robotics and to have [[KillSteal built Doctor Zin's famous spider-bot]]. Her recurring condescension towards both Doctor Quest and Doctor Zin borders on StrawFeminist territory except that it seems to be written sincerely. Sadly, were it not for her distasteful PositiveDiscrimination aspects, Professor Kim-Conroy would otherwise be an interesting character.

While Frankenstein Jr. held the first part of the title, he shared his show with ''WesternAnimation/TheImpossibles'', who had two segments per show while he only had one. ''Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles'' was one of the last H-B series animated in the classic Ed Benedict style (which often contrasted with the shows plots, which were usually played more seriously).
