I use to love this show when it ran in syndication. I love the art and styling of this cartoon.This cartoon was soo 60’s! I am planning on ordering the DVD series set for this cartoon because I love all the characters and the stories. Jonny Quest – often casually referred to as The Adventures of Jonny Quest – is the original American science fiction/adventure animated television series that started the franchise. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for Screen Gems, and created and designed by comic-book artist Doug Wildey. Inspired by radio serials and comics in the action-adventure genre, it featured more realistic art, characters, and stories than Hanna-Barbera’s previous cartoon programs. It was the first of several Hanna-Barbera action-based adventure shows – which would later include Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and Birdman and the Galaxy Trio – and ran on ABC in prime time on early Friday nights for one season in 1964–1965.
I would have been too old to be watching these (although I know I was still watching George of the Jungle in 1969!) And, this was more “guy stuff”. But I remember my boys being glued to “Speed Racer” every morning before they went to school! (that would be in the early 80’s I think) These were both great animation. Hanna-Barbera were an incredible team. I had a few drinks with the “Barbera” one down at the old Firehouse restaurant in Old Sac mannny years ago & he drew something (can’t remember what;- ) for me on a cocktail napkin. Sure wish I’d kept it!
