Did You Know?


The second Jonny Quest (1964) episode ever produced, it was meant to introduce the new character Hadji. When the air date was pushed back, making Hadji an already-familiar character, the "flashback" frame story was added to acknowledge this. See more »


Skis and sleds take seconds to move downhill, yet take minutes if not good fractions of hours to be walked uphill. Pasha would seem to be able to sled back uphill to his helicopter, and the Quests would later seem to be able to ski back up to the helicopter as well, unless Pasha had walked back up the mountain and flown his helicopter to a lower point, which would make him a very vigorous man at that altitude.

Hadji: Wait! That is not an enemy! That is Pasha Peddler.
Jonny Quest: Pasha Peddler?
Hadji: My old and venerable friend.
Roger T. 'Race' Bannon: In a helicopter?
Hadji: Being old and venerable, he is wise to the ways of the world. You will see.
Pasha Peddler: Hadji, baby!

Hadji's story and Jesse White
8 December 2008 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Through a flashback, "Calcutta Adventure" tells the story of how Hadji came to live with the Quest family. In this episode, Dr. Quest is in India lecturing at a local university. However, he has another, more dangerous purpose for being in India. He's looking for a secret nerve gas factory. When a young Indian named Hadji saves Dr. Quest's life, the Quests ask Hadji if he'll be their guide. The group heads for the mountains as the attempts on Dr. Quest's life continue. He's eventually taken prisoner in the secret nerve gas factory and, in exciting fashion, must be rescued by Race – with some help from an enterprising man named Pasha Peddler.

Overall, this is a solid episode. But then again, any episode that includes Hadji's back-story and how he came to live with the Quests is going to be worth watching. "Calcutta Adventure" features a lot of good action and creepy bad guys. The underground lair is also a nice touch. As for Pasha Peddler, he's easily one of the best ancillary characters in the first seven episodes. He's kind of like the Mr. Haney of India. It doesn't hurt that he was voiced by legendary character actor Jesse White. That voice is unmistakable – regardless of how un-Indian it might sound.
