Storyline

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

Jonny's mom first appears in the comic-book story "Enter Race Bannon" in JONNY QUEST #2 (Comico, July 1986). The former Judith Waterston dies in Paris from an incurable disease when Jonny is still a young boy. Dr. Benton Quest is so devastated by her death that agent Roger "Race" Bannon is assigned to be Jonny's bodyguard. The made-for-cable animated film Jonny's Golden Quest (1993) told a different story about Jonny's mother, as explained in the "Classic Jonny Quest FAQ": Now instead of an incurable disease, or even letting the matter simply remain a mystery, the death of Jonny's mother (renamed Rachel Wildey after artist Doug Wildey) involved Dr. Zin. Although controversial, this revision has become the official version of what happened, and is reported as such in such reference material as the 'Jonny Quest Character Reference Guide', published by Hanna Barbera in 1995.

THE DVD is absolutely awesome!!
15 July 2004 | by (Cleethorpes,England) – See all my reviews

OK so I'm a big kid at heart according to my wife- I have recently purchased the JOnny Quest first series on DVD- what quality! Even my young son is hooked on it- Great music, superb animation design which looks good on DVD, fantastic extras including a Jonny Quest TV ad on sneakers- wow never knew that. Overall a highly enjoyable package and well worth the £ 29 i paid for this on Region 1( not available in UK yet so i had to order from the USA!)- SO THE EVENINGS are now spent watching Monster in the MOnastery or the Lizard men,instead of a chardonnay with the missus- how sad am I? OR how excited can one get> Jonny Quest undoubtedly is the best animation adventure ever made!
