39:50: There was a brief period in '80 cartoons where the Villains were giving the PSAs. Which I though was funny as hell. MASK in particular did this a lot in their second season.

Kind of reminds me how in a lot of those same 80’s cartoons, selling drugs was a line most of the “regular” (i.e. in every episode) villains would never cross. You could be the #1 crime lord in the city, willing to off cops who get in your way without a second through, but when it comes to selling drugs, you say no because “they hurt people.”

As a result, they’d often bring in one shot “guest” villains to be drug dealers, and even have the regular villains team up with the heroes to shut them down.
