Doc Carter is back and this time...
... he left the kids at home!
Micro Ventures ran briefly as an animated segment on the Hanna-Barbara Banana Splits show. The 4 minute segments were about Professor Carter and his teenaged kids Mike and Jill who used a shrink ray to shrink themselves and their dune buggy to get a bug sized view of the world. The threats tended to be distant ones as the Prof lectured his kids on bug life to downplay how the Professor would transform the safety of the yard for his kids into an alien jungle looming with the threat of fatal encounters with any of the thousands of giant insect monsters out there. It could not compete with the thrills and action of the show's other segments, Arabian Knights and 3 Musketeers and lasted only 4 short episodes. Great potential never realized. I think with a little refomatting to up the thrill factor, it might have enjoyed great success.
