Did You Know?


The development of the show began in late 1992. By the end of 1995, not one single episode had gone beyond preproduction stage and $11 million had been spent by the first-season crew, led by Peter Lawrence and Takashi Masunaga, so they were fired in December 1995. Originally, there were supposed to be sixty-five episodes for the show. But thirteen episodes were cut to recover some of the losses made by the original crew. Glenn Leopold worked for a short time as a writer in the first season. During that time, he didn't agree with the ideas of the crew for the show. So when John Eng and Cosmo Anzilotti took over, Leopold came back on as the story editor. Along with writer Lance Falk and producers Davis Doi and Larry Houston, Leopold brought back the feel of the original '60s series by bringing back Dr. Zin, Jade, and other characters. Despite the fact that they "had" to use Questworld as a continuation, they tried to stay faithful to the original. Many scripts produced during the first season were found by them to be unairable so Michael Ryan, the only first-season writer aside from Leopold to work with the second-season one, had to come in and do "story polish" in order to make them airable.

An Excellent Remake Of A 60s Classic For The Younger Generation
23 August 2008 | by (London, England, UK) – See all my reviews

The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest was killed off right before it got the chance to realise its potential. Yes this was a 90s remake of a cult classic, and yes you could argue that nothing beats the original Jonny Quest; however, as an 80s born kid growing up as a teen in the 90s, the only version of this show that I was practically familiar with, was this one, 'The Real Adventures of...'.

Plot-wise, the story revolved around a teenager named Jonny Quest- a computer whizz kid, who battles international criminals with the help of a computer generated program, known as 'Questworld'. Joining Jonny on his quest are Jessie Bannon and her father Race Bannon, his Indian friend, Hadji and Jonny's father, Dr Benton Quest.

The voice cast were made up of some of the most recognisable names in TV and film; Rob Paulsen, Frank Welker, Robert Patrick (he of The X-files and Terminator 2 fame), George Segal (Just Shoot Me)and Mark Hamill (Star Wars)to name.

I remembered seeing at the time a few promos of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, on Cartoon Network's part, courtesy of Hanna Barbera in the lead up to its debut on the channel in 96'. Design-wise, the character designs had more of a dimension to them, in contrast to its 60s counterparts. The use of computer generated effects really brought this show to life almost. At times, it looked very flashy- although I have to say that whilst the computer graphics looked impressive back then, these days, I personally think they look rather dodgy. In addition, a female character by the name of Jesse was introduced in this particular series- although she was not an original member of the 60s Quest team.

I still don't understand why this cartoon series was cancelled; in fact, the best post- 60s Hanna Barbera cartoons which were cancelled, such as 'The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest', 'Johnny Bravo' and 'The Pirates of Dark Water' to name, were all short-lived and were brilliant shows in their own right.

The stories in this show were inventive, interesting and well written; the dialogue was superb, the animation was spot-on and the music was great too. I cannot really compare this Jonny Quest to the 60s version, given my unfamiliarity with the latter show, but The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest ranks up there with the very best.

Such a shame however that it never really got the respect it warranted.
