Jonny Quest Opening Titles

In 1964, Jonny Quest aired to rave reviews as the first, adult action/adventure cartoon in prime time. It had cool jazz music by Hoyt Curtin and terrific, high contrast pen and ink design work by Doug Wildey. As an animator and long time JQ junkie, I had always wanted a set of Jonny Quest action figures but, due to high production costs, the show only lasted one season; not long enough to spawn any kind of serious toys or other merchandising tie-ins. So, almost 50 years later, I made my own. Here is my Valentine to one of the coolest, if not THE coolest, cartoons ever to spin up the imagination of a 53 year old man now going on six.

    very well put together.Not thrown together like some youtube posting from a 10 yr.old playing with toys. This must have taken lots of time in the editing room.
    Truly a work of a dedicated Johnny Quest fan. Gives one a preview what a CGI Johnny Quest Quest film might look like…what with Tin Tin out there, why mot Johnny?
