heh well I watched the old JQ when I was a kid, but I never actually watched the New A...although I was aware of it, I have been made acquainted with her since I have been getting commissions for her XD
I sorta know what you mean. I only watched the 'new' one as a kid, with a few pleasant glimpses at the old series until recenlty, when I bought the 60's version for my dad. Totally awesome! But out of preference, I like the newer version more, not cuz of Jessie, but because they had better plots from what I remember. Gotta get back into 'em!
