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 »
When I first saw "The Matrix," I was immediately reminded of the opening graphics of this high-quality cartoon show. This show never disappointed me with its smart writing, very good animation, and its storyline. . .it has a more or less continuous plot, at least towards the end. My favorite two episodes were "Less than Zero," where the team seeks after ghosts in a huge Venetian island mansion (kind of a fusion between "Ghostbusters" and "The Shining") and an episode where the team lands on an island that has, again, a haunted house. Johnny and Jesse become possessed by two dead lovers, and in a very cute scene, find themselves kissing as the spirits leave their bodies. It's a shame that the lowgrade animation and lowest common denominator catchphrase spewing humor of shows such as Powerpuff girls and Dexter's Laboratory are what we get these days. P.S. It may be sacrilage, but I daresay that "Real adventures" was BETTER than the original Johnny Quest.
