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 »

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!
