Jonny Quest (1986)

Show Summary

In this continuation of the original Jonny Quest series from the 60's, this 13-episode series aired in syndication as part of the Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera weekend cartoon package. The formula was basically the same as the original: Dr. Benton Quest and his long-time friend and aide "Race" Bannon, along with Quest's son Jonny and his friend Hadji Singh, investigate the upper threshold of science and the world of the paranormal, travelling the world and solving puzzles, locating hidden artifacts, battling evildoers such as the evil Dr. Zin, and escaping danger at every turn. The new series did some updating to the original: strong independent teenage girl Jessie Bradshaw was introduced in the fourth episode and became a member of the Quest team. The producers also added Hardrock, a stone-like warrior from deep beneath the Earth, who helped out the Quests. They also split the original Quest plane into two ships - Questor 2 attached to Questor 1 but could detach for 1-man missions as necessary. The thirteen new episodes were syndicated along with the original 26, and the older episodes were cut down by 5 minutes for additional commercials and had their opening credits changed to show the new Questor plane instead. The third series, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, pretty much ignored this series (although they had a character named Jessie Bannon who pretty much did the same thing as Jessie Bradshaw here). The series is available on a 3-DVD/VHS set at most outlets.moreless
