Storyline

On a South American jungle expedition to a fabled lost city, the Quest party comes under attack from deadly traps and natives with blowguns. With their porters frightened off, Dr. Quest presses on, having come too far to turn back (not knowing that Montoya, their head guide, orchestrated these attacks). Once at the lost city, they find themselves watched and discover a naive man staked out for death. For the boys safety, Benton decides to leave at dawn, but before they do, Jonny stumbles upon a secret treasure chamber. Now it's clear they've been hounded by Montoya and Perkins, a pair of tomb raiders seeking ancient treasure. With the treasure found, the raiders no longer need to worry about just scaring the Quests away. With assistance from the native they rescued earlier, the Quests escape and paddle for their lives down a crocodile-infested subterranean river with the armed raiders close behind.

Jonny finds a fortune in treasure
8 December 2008 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

At the request of a Central/South American government (I'm just guessing because I don't remember the actual country being named), the Quest Gang travel to do some scientific research at an ancient Mayan city. But they're not alone. An explorer named Perkins is already there looking for a rumored treasure. When Jonny accidentally finds a secret room, it looks like certain death for our heroes.

"Treasure of the Temple" may not be the best episode, but it's certainly entertaining enough. There's a certain amount of intrigue that goes into the mysterious occurrences surrounding the Quests' trip to the archaeological dig. And there's certainly no shortage of dangers – from spiked traps to alligators to underwater rivers to pyramids to natives to hidden rooms to a fortune in treasure, there's something interesting around every corner. Also, and a real change-of-pace to a lot of the first few episodes of Johnny Quest, "Treasure of the Temple" doesn't feature an Asian or Middle-Eastern bad guy. It's nice to see the writers could turn a white, Anglo Saxon into a killer.

Unfortunately for "Treasure of the Temple", there's nothing "big" to make it stand out from many of the other episodes. There's nothing like the mummy Anubis, for example, to make this episode especially memorable. It's good – just not great.
