Classic Jonny Quest - Links
© 1999-2012 Lyle P. Blosser
As all-encompassing as we've tried to make our site, we acknowledge that there are
other places on the 'net with Jonny Quest themes and information. Here are some
of the ones we liked.
This is a great little blog from Chris Webber about Jonny Quest-related topics:
people, art, music and of course, the show itself. Not a high-volume site, but definitely
high-quality: what's there is written well, and truly is a "must-visit" for any
After posting an underground documentary on the making
of Jonny Quest on YouTube, it became apparent that people all over the world wanted
to download the doc for their own. So I got permission from the documentary's creators
and started my blog first to make the doc available for download, but it has become
a place to share music, art and everything Quest related. All are welcome to visit
"Roger Evan's "stop-motion" JQ opening credits project
Roger Evans is an artist, author, photgrapher, and film-maker. But he is also a
huge Jonny Quest fan! Visit his website where he allows visitors to follow along
the process as he re-images the classic Jonny Quest opening credit sequence using
stop-motion animation techniques. The results are awesome!
Jonny Quest pages
are located in the "Department of Cartoons", and contain
a compilation of model sheets, video clips (including a classic 1964 P.F.Flyers
TV commercial!), and much more! If Jonny Quest can be said to have an "official"
page anywhere on the web, this is it!
NOTE: The previous description used
to be true, but as of a recent visit, a major revamp of their pages has taken place
-- and all of the previous wonderful Jonny Quest material
is GONE. What a bummer!
BUT WAIT! Thanks to the magic that is the
internet and the wonderful website named the Internet Archive (http://www.webarchive.org)
and their "Wayback Machine", we here at ClassicJQ.com can resurrect the OLD SET
OF PAGES for you!! Just click
on this link and you'll get to see almost
everything as it was originally presented on the Cartoon Network
website. The link points to an archive from June 2001. The only things that are
not retrievable are, unfortunately, the sound and episode and PF Flyers commercial
clips (because of the way they were presented originally on the page via a script),
but everything else, including all of the storyboards, model sheets, etc. is still
viewable! I love the internet!
was originally another great place concentrating
on the classic 1964 show, with audio and video clips, storyboard-like presentations
of the classic episodes, and more. More recently, the site was undergoing some major
renovations and had just some links to several underscore files.
But, unfortunately, that site has gone away, seemingly on a permanent basis!
A new owner of the domain apparently has other plans for that neat-o URL. FalSo,
for now all we can do is mourn its passing, and view (once again via the Internet
Archive web site first mentioned above) its last Jonny Quest incarnation:

eBay's online auction site
tangible proof that Jonny Quest is alive and well. You'll be amazed at the number
of Jonny Quest items that show up on a regular basis; items change continually,
so check the list often! The following links will start various searches of eBay
for items that contain the text Jonny Quest as well as the commonly-encountered
misspellings (Johnny and Johny) in either the title or the item description. The
logo and text link (above left) will take you to the eBay "home" page.
The Forgotten Art of Doug Wildey
from the ComicArtVille Library
is an excellent
biographical article on Doug Wildey, with some interesting facts and images not
Jonny Quest Glitches from whatsitsgalore.com
What's a glitch? Glitches are mistakes in movies and TV shows. They can be technical
goofs, continuity errors, or anything that makes you scratch your head and say,
"Huh?" This page is dedicated to glitches in the classic Hanna-Barbera animated
series Jonny Quest
. Most are good (some are duplicates of
fan-reported flubs from classicjq.com); a few are questionable or inaccurate. View
with an objective mind and have some fun!
Don Markstein's Toonopedia
has a subtitle of "A Vast Repository of
Toonological Knowledge", and the rest of the site lives up to that! Here's the link
to the Jonny Quest entry
The Superhero Cartoon Database
has information on your favorite cartoon
superheros - of course, the Quests
are included, even though they don't wear capes.
Jonny Quest-related clips on YouTube
OK, I guess it was only a matter of time until some folks with too much time on
their hands created some clips involving either JQ video or JQ themes or...
Here are some that were sent in to us; do your own search to find more. Warning:
the quality (and subject matter) of the results of your search may vary widely.
NOTE: There apparently has been a recent "purge" of fan-based materials and a lot
of clips that used to be available have been taken down. Still, it's worth a bit
of your time to wander through the place...
Jonny Quest clips
By far the best set
of Jonny Quest related clips, not just on YouTube but I dare say on the entire internet,
is the 2-hour fan-made documentary entitled Quest:
How the World's Most Ambitious Animated Series Came to Television

"From Palm Key..."

Finally, check out
, a mailing list site which currently has a number of
Jonny Quest related mailing lists, including:
Classic Jonny Quest Mailing List - a list for discussion focusing on
the 1964 show.
File037Quest List - a list devoted to classic Jonny Quest.
Jonny Quest Mailing List (JQML) - for discussion on not only the 1964
