Dr. Benton Quest is a research scientist who is frequently called upon for missions that require his scientific and technical expertise. He is usually accompanied by his son Jonny, his tutor/bodyguard Race Bannon, their bulldog with the distinctive mask-like eye markings named Bandit, and Hadji, an Indian orphan who has special abilities of his own. Together, they investigate mysteries, perform rescues and battle nefarious villains around the world, most notably Dr. Zin. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Trivia

This was originally intended to be a cartoon version of the classic radio serial "Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy" and the section of the closing credits where African tribesmen are throwing spears at the Quest plane was planned as part of that concept. When veteran comic book artist Doug Wildey came on board, he suggested dropping that idea in favor of an original concept, and the Jonny Quest idea was born. See more »

STILL the all-time best!
25 March 2004 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

I remember watching JONNY QUEST when it first came on TV - in the Prime Time hours no less! As a kid I didn't quite realize how different from other cartoons this piece of greatness was. Now as an adult (although still a kid at heart), I understand what made it different and great. Firstly, it was a show about kids - Jonny and Hadji (and Hadji was from another country!) - where the adults treated the boys as Kids and not Babies. They went all over the world for their adventures, and "gosh!" I was learning about other countries and cultures, and I didn't even know it! And the science (although somewhat archaic now) was ahead of its time. Of course, that was only to be expected, coming from the genius of the great scientist, Dr. Benton Quest! And the artwork from Hanna-Barbera gave credit to it all. The locations were gorgeous and accurate as possible. The foreign peoples looked as they should, not just WASPs with slanted eyes. And the hardware was as sleek and shiny as the science could make it. After all these years, the show stands the test of time. I still thoroughly enjoy watching it, and I'm thrilled that the complete set of episodes is coming to DVD in May of this year. If you haven't seen it yet, here's your chance! Take the time - it is supremely well worth it!
