    Just been uploaded today, thought it might be of interest to some. Here’s Danny as Captain Electric in Spatz.

    I thought this was going to be about Craig Charles voicing Asterix.

    When i first saw Gunmen, I recognised Jennifer Calvert from Spatz. I don’t know why. I fucking hated Spatz.

    Whoa!

    That was impressively boring. Why did I watch the whole thing? Danny probably was the best aspect, though I would hesitate to even suggest this breaks into his top 5 children’s TV roles.

    Also, were the writers of Spatz (1990-1992) aware of the weird trend of black superheroes having electricity-based powers and were knowingly parodying that, or were they just unknowingly contributing to it?

    I have extremely fond memories of the existence of Spatz that would, I’m sure, be ruined if I ever tried to watch it again. But yes, it’s also where I recognised Jennifer Calvert from when I first saw Gunmen.

    Haaa, excellent point! I’m going with unknowingly contributing. It’s such a bizarre trend, though, and there doesn’t seem to be any particular reason for it and yet it keeps on happening, right the way up to Miles Morales.
