Their chief weapon, and the target of many of their enemies, is the permanent, variable, sometimes unpredictable computer-generated VR domain, Questworld, which is entered using VR headsets. Inside Questworld, they must solve puzzles, locate hidden objects, battle evildoers and escape very-real danger if they are to succeed. Written by

When the second-season crew took over, they brought in Don Messick to play Dr. Benton Quest. But Messick's poor health condition caused difficulty for him while playing Dr. Quest in the first few episodes of the second season, so they had to replace him with John de Lancie, who redubbed the episodes that Messick had played in. But one line of dialogue by Messick wasn't re-dubbed - his "And not a moment too soon" can be heard in "Rock of Rages". See more »
I think this show was killed by hype before it got a chance to shine. Multitudes of licensed product hit the market weeks in advance of it's release in 1996 and an entire first season was broadcast over a month- killing the chance to get up any kind of audience level.
It's a real shame, because this show is DIFFERENT. It took a walk on the wild side from your average cartoon show, with characters you can believe in in situations of real danger. I'd also like to add that the original JQ was the first of it's kind, but was also one of the first cartoons to involve a front-line 'minority race' character- Hadji.
Somebody needs to tell CN and WB that it's not all about making money. Sometimes, just sometimes, it's about entertaining the masses.
