Hey Sam, Introduce them to Tin Tin as it is very good as well. I have S1-S3 on dvd and they are good and affordable! You may also want to introduce them to return of the planet of the apes or star trek the animated series as well.

I pulled out jonny quest from my dvd collection and started to watch it again. I can not believe after nearly 50 years the show is still great

 

I watched the double danger with captions about the show and it was neat reading about the shows approach and how it was a head of its time. The equipment used was pulled from scientific magazine!!

 

The shows also pulled issues of the day, i.e. nazi war criminals, Red China (Dr Zee), espionage/James Bond plays, exotic locations, i.e. africa, thailand, etc.

This show is TIMELESS! Along with The Flintstones and The Jetsons This was the beginning of HB's "Golden Era" which lasted until the early 1970s.

I totally agree with you about golden era for HB. I also like to watch the herculoids as well as it is my other favourite show. I was not born when either the herculoids and/or Jonny Quest first came out. I was able to experience both those shows in the 1970s!

reading some of the bad reviews from amazon, apparently this show has been edited from its original content ?

 In "Monster In The Monastery", Jonny's line "Uh oh, here comes the Oriental Express" was cut.  In "Pursuit of the Poho", Race's lines are cut where he says "heathen monkeys" and "ignorant savages."  The strange thing is that the same studio also released Freakazoid! on DVD which had the same lines used as a parody of Jonny Quest in the "Toby Danger" episode.

Perhaps these episodes will be released uncensored on DVD through the Warner Archives or on a future Blu-ray release.

I guess i do not look at some of the shows as closely as other people as such i do no see the editing. The thing that was neat about Jonny Quest was equipment, especially the plane or boats or guns, etc.

 

The episodes are neat because they tie into the cold war era and post WWII missing Nazi (nuremberg trials). There are also great episodes on people trying steal treasures!! Jonny Quest was ahead of its time and that is what makes it so good!

Once a year I pulled out Jonny Quest and watch the series over a period of a few nights. I can not believe after 50 years that I have to say it was one of the best cartoon series ever produced!

 

The episodes are neat due to the time period being 1964 as such there was plots evolving on cold war, nazi war criminals, espionage, stolen treasures, etc. Hats off to HB for creating such a memorable series!

How many people here know that Jonny Quest was inspired by Doc Savage (the design of Race Bannon looks a lot like Doc, and the plane Dr. Quest & Co. fly in looks a lot like a modern-day version of the plane Doc & the Fabulous Five fly in)?

IMHO avoid anything after the original 1964 series. While your kids might enjoy it, the updates were horrible and produced a boring, poorly animated, stereotypical, and redundant program. Stick with the original.

 I love the addition of Race's daughter Jessie to the succeeding series; it's also built up quite the fan art  and fans as well:

Agreed and the same can be said for The Jetsons. Stick with the Original 1962 series and avoid the later psuedo Season 2 and 3 that were produced 20 years later with none of the same qualities of the original.
