En route to Sumatra, the Quests spot the Star of Borneo, a Dutch freighter declared missing in the Java Sea. Landing their aircraft on deck, they find the ship seaworthy but deserted. As they discover and read the captain's log, baring a tale of woe and horror, an amphibious sea monster ventures out from the ship's shadows to destroy their plane. Stranded and unable to call for help, the Quests have to survive the night to build an escape raft in the morning, but circumstances force them to take an immediate stand against the monster for survival. Aiding them somewhat is the ship's Chinese cook, Charlie, whom they find half-frozen in the galley freezer. Written by
Did You Know?
Whether deliberately or accidentally, the Sea Haunt sea monster is derivative of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, though fashioned a bit more lizard-like. In terms of motivation, it is the weakest antagonist in the Jonny Quest series, not serving any fathomable need. Despite exhibiting a slight quality of curiosity, it remains an unprovoked, violent, 100% horror that elicits no sympathy, staying aboard ship merely to smash things up. See more
When Hadji takes the picture, he is using a camera similar to the Polaroid 300 series, which were only able to take pictures with the bellows extended. With the camera still folded into its storage configuration, he would have been unable to operate the shutter; with the bellows extended, he would not have been able to obscure the lens with his finger.

For desert we have fortune cookie.
Hey, listen to my fortune: "Be careful of unknown danger."
Mine is not much better: "There is great evil abroad tonight."
Gee, maybe there IS something to this fortune cookie stuff.
