Jonny Quest
All 26 Episodes
Plus Great Bonus Features

Plot Outline:
The Quest family and their bodyguard investigate strange phenomena and battle villains
around the world.
Plot Synopsis: Dr. Benton Quest is a research scientist who is frequently called upon for
missions that require his scientific and technical expertise. He is usually accompanied by his
son Jonny, his tutor/bodyguard Race Bannon, their bulldog with the distinctive mask-like eye
markings named Bandit, and Hadji, an Indian orphan who has special abilities of his own.
Together, they investigate mysteries, perform rescues and battle nefarious villains around
the world, most notably Dr. Zin.

Baby boomers of a certain age, and anyone fond of classic Hanna Barbera cartoons, might
find the 40-year-old episodes in Jonny Quest: The Complete First Season an exciting blast
from the past. Five years before Hanna Barbera made a comedy about amateur youths
solving exotic mysteries in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, the animation giant captured a
more serious spirit from a different era in Jonny Quest. The series played on primetime
television-a very big deal for animation at the time-in 1964, and was infused with energy
from sundry pop trends as well as cold war paranoia and a prevailing belief in limitless
technology (largely inspired by America's race to the moon). Part intelligence thriller, part
science fiction, Jonny Quest made a child's adventure out of thwarting international
espionage and sabotage with super-computers, state-of-the-art transportation to every
corner of the planet, an apparently bottomless budget for building fantastic weapons, martial
arts, and more. The fact that schoolboy Jonny, as well as his best friend, Hadji, and canine
companion Bandit, were having adventures akin to those of James Bond was terribly exciting.

Young Jonny (voiced by actor Tim Matheson, later a co-star of Animal House and The West
Wing) is the motherless son of government scientist Dr. Benton Quest. The latter conducts
all manner of research from a remote island, where he lives with Jonny, Hadji, Bandit, and
chief assistant Race Bannon, a rugged fellow who tutors Jonny but also provides muscle
when the group is on assignment anywhere from the Arctic to Calcutta. The original 26
episodes (on four discs) find the team battling conspirators amidst half-sunken pirate ships
in the Sargasso Sea (in the pilot, "Mystery of the Lizard Men," sans Hadji), working
undercover to stop a Jahilipur manufacturer of fake gold ("Riddle of the Gold"), and foiling
an effort to steal an experimental, "mind-numbing" drug (and passing off a Race look-alike
as the real McCoy) in "Double Danger." (The last introduces Race's hottie girlfriend, Jezebel
Jade.) The slow, deliberate animation (even more stiff than Scooby) can get a little wearing,
but the uniqueness of Jonny Quest as a genuine adventure-drama makes this collection a
must. -Tom Keogh

Product Description
Unlike the outrageous fantasy plots of cartoons that preceded it, "Jonny Quest" drew on
science and detective-style logic to solve mysteries and apprehend sophisticated villains.
Viewers were transported to exotic locales as Jonny's dad Dr. Benton Quest tackled each
new government assignment, aided by ex-agent "Race" Bannon, the Indian boy Hadji, family
bulldog Bandit.and of course, his fearless 11-year-old son Jonny (voiced by actor Tim
Matheson). Now all 26 classic episodes from Year One charting the fantastic exploits of
brave and brainy Jonathan Quest are available for the first time ever, digitally re-mastered
on DVD in a deluxe four-disc collectors set, featuring over 11 hours of classic original TV
programming and newly-added enhanced content.
