Some of the posters on the 1960s thread,
mentioned how they were fans of Jonny Quest. I don’t remember if
we have ever had a JQ thread on SDMB so I decided to start one.
What are your memories of Jonny Quest? What are your favorite
episodes, vehicles, moments?
Some years ago Ted Turner’s WTBS ran the entire series as a marathon
and I was able to record about half of the series. I rediscovered the tape
and rewatched them a few weeks ago and IMHO JC still stand up quite well.
My biggest impression is the violence portrayed in many of the episodes,
this cartoon could never be made today. Many of the stories have gunfire,
bombs, explosions and assassinations, people actually die by the hands of
One of the most memorable episodes for me is The Invisible Monster
A scientist experimenting with “molecular energy” accidentally creates a living
mass of energy that only exists to consume more energy. Who can forget the
sight of that horrid creature after the Quest team swoops down on their jetpacks
and bomb the creature with paint to make it visible? The shimmering blob with one
huge eye and mouth coming at you…shudder. This episode scared the crap
out of me when I was a kid and still packs a punch today.
So, do any dopers want to share memories of Jonny Quest?
