  • Vintage TV Show -Jonny Quest
  • One of my favorite shows in the 60’s my brothers and I would watch religiously was “JONNY QUEST”. It was a Hanna-Barbera animated adventure show about Dr. Benton Quest, his good friend Race Bannon, Jonny, Dr. Quest’s son, Hadji, Jonny’s Indian friend, and Bandit their dog. They traveled the world to battle evil doers. Their big nemesis was Dr. Lin. We often wondered why they never showed Mrs. Quest, Jonny’s mother. She was never mentioned, and, obvious that Jonny looked a lot like Race Bannon than his own dad. No DNA testing back then…hhhmmm? FWIW, the voice of Jonny was supplied by Tim Matheson, better known as OTTER in the movie “Animal House”. It’s hard to believe that classic movie is 40 years old this month.

  • I looked forward to JQ too. The Dr. had the coolest weapons & vehicles at their disposal.

  • That show was a fav of mine too. Especially the episode in which a Mad Scientist in the middle of a jungle somewhere, created an "Energy Monster" which was invisible. It came out at night wreaking havoc with the natives. Quest of course was called in to save the day. Interesting observation of Jonny and Race. SoS

  • There were the lizard men and the stone people too. In one of the movies, it was revealed that Race Bannon fathered a daughter and that Dr. Lin had killed Jonny's mother.
