EDIT
Monsters in the Monastery
AIRED:
Bigfoot look-a-like monsters attack a village from a monastery connected only by a rope bridge in the mountains. People are scared of this monastery because they believe it to be haunted by monsters which later turn out to be humans dressed in costumes. As the Quest teams figures this out they engage in a clumsy battle with the fake monsters. A surprise happens in the end when a real Sasquatch monster kills all those who wore the costumes and heads back into his cave in the mountains.moreless

  • Excellent!

    Yetis are attacking a monastery, and Jonny and his team have to figure out what's going on. Now this is a brilliant premise for a classic cartoon! It's filled with tension, the action is awesome, and I had a blast watching. Jonny Quest is one of the most underrated cartoons in the history of television, and this shows it.
  • And, by that, I mean a fine example of how the writers were able to blend a still-controversial piece of crypto-zoology with a still-timely piece of political intrigue.

    The crypto-zoology? Why, the Yeti angle, of course! It is a fact that Sir Edmund Hilary ("the Conqueror of Everest") led an expedition to try and verify, once and for all, the existence of this creature. He even brought along an American zoologist named Marlon Perkins! Yes; the same one who later hosted "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom" in the 1970's. The expedition failed, however, to find any conclusive evidence. As for the political intrigue? Well, in 1964, it was only a couple years since Communist China had actually invaded India, in an attempt to wrest control of the Kashmir region! And, of course, Tibet's Dalai Lama (real-life version of the Raj-Guru) is still living in exile because of his country's forcible annexation by Beijing. The real reason I love this episode so much, however? Jonny, Hadji, and Bandit using a gong as a snow-saucer! LOL!!!moreless
