Cartoon Production Information:
The show was an adventure series about pre-teen Jonny Quest, who, along with mystical Indian friend Hadji, pet dog Bandit, Jonny's super-scientist father Dr. Benton Quest, and government intelligence agent/bodyguard/pilot Race Bannon, investigated strange goings-on all over the world. Episodes of Jonny Quest blended mystery, adventure, action, intrigue, scientific marvels, and humor as the group traveled everywhere from the Sargasso Sea to equatorial Africa.
Jonny Quest originally ran in primetime on ABC during the 1964-65 season, but much like Hanna-Barbera predecessor The Jetsons, the program didn't find success until it moved to Saturday morning. When it hit, it hit big. Jonny Quest ran on CBS from 1967-1970, then back to ABC through 1972. In 1978, the program became part of The Godzilla Power Hour, and in 1979, Jonny Quest moved to NBC, where it stayed until 1981. All that milage on twenty-six original episodes- pretty impressive.
Hanna-Barbera rebooted the character in 1986 in The New Jonny Quest, a segment on The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. This lasted thirteen episodes.
In 1996, the Turner Company released an updated, all-new series entitled Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures. This new series featured an additional character in Jessie Bannon, the daughter of Race, and made extensive use of computer animation.
