The New Adventures of Jonny Quest

The New Adventures of Jonny Quest Information

The New Adventures of Jonny Quest is a 1980s continuation of the 1964 original Jonny Quest. Debuting in 1986 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera's syndication package (it was the seventh and final Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the four and a half weekday/weekend morning line-up), this new series could be seen as the second season to a program that originally aired from 1964 to 1965 on ABC.

Production and history

By the mid-eighties, the edited episodes of the original Quest series (each episode was missing about five minutes of footage edited for time constraints and content) were part of The Funtastic World's second season lineup, alongside Yogi's Treasure Hunt, Paw Paws and Galtar and the Golden Lance. Thirteen episodes were produced in 1986 to accompany the original in the Funtastic World programming block. These episodes were referred to simply as Jonny Quest on their title cards, and were noticeably less violent and more "kid-friendly"? than the 1960s version.

This was followed by two television movies, Golden Quest and The Cyber Insects, with the same actors voicing Dr. Quest, Race and Hadji. The 1980s Quest series introduced a new character named Hardrock, an ancient man made of stone (similar in appearance to that of "The Thing" from Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four). He did not return in any later versions of the program.
