"Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear Weekly" magazine, May 1965 to Aug. 1967

Huckleberry Hound Weekly from City Magazines Ltd. was the first British comic dedicated to William Hanna and Joseph Barbera cartoon characters. It was tabloid sized, and dedicated its pages to the likes of Mr. Jinks, Pixie and Dixie, Yogi Bear And Boo Boo, The Flintstones, Top Cat, Wally Gator and Atom Ant amongst others. And, for a time, that included Jonny Quest!

"Comics Feature" Magazine issues #30 and #31, July and September 1984

These two issues feature an interview of JQ series creator Doug Wildey by James Van Hise. It appears to be a duplicate of the article that appeared in The Jonny Quest Files magazine, but without the annoying presentation over graphic images.

"The Jonny Quest Files" One-Shot Magazine 1986

This 1986 "Cartoon Files Magazine Spotlight" squarebound magazine is by James Van Hise. It contains B&W artwork and his Jonny Quest episode summaries, which have also been published in the Jonny Quest Character Reference Guide and the May 1986 issue of TV Gold.

"TV Gold" Magazine, premiere issue May 1986

TV Gold magazine's premier issue from May 1986 mentioned Jonny Quest on its cover. It features an article by James Van Hise ... including a synopsis of ONLY the first 12 episodes that are essentially copied verbatim from this magazine, "The Jonny Quest Files." Of interest to trivia fans are the episode titles reported in this article; especially the "preliminary" names used for "Arctic Splashdown" (Splashdown Antarctica) and "The Robot Spy" (Dr. Zin's Robot Spy).

Here are links to scanned images of the 5 pages of the article: page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4, and page 5.

(Thanks to Martin Sentmanat for both the images and the info.)

"Amazing Heroes" #95 - Jonny Quest Issue, May 15, 1986

This wonderful issue has a lot of info, including articles about the show and the (then-upcoming) Comico comic book series. It has a nice set of sketches as well; if you can find this book, I think you'll be pleased. And, of course, it's got that great cover painting by Doug Wildey!

"Amazing Heroes" #103 - William Messner-Loebs issue, Sept. 15, 1986

William Messner-Loebs was the story writer for Comico's "Jonny Quest" comic book series, which launched in 1986.

"Epi-Log" No. 25 - Saturday AM and Animation issue, Dec 1992

Epi-Log is well-known for its numerous reviews of nearly every TV show produced. This issue contains a review of the 1964 Jonny Quest series; with several large images (see below) and a synopsis of every episode. These synopses are done rather well, and are nearly (but not quite) error-free, being much better than the errorneous summaries found in The Jonny Quest Files and the Jonny Quest Character Reference Guide.

The back of the magazine contained a full-page color image based on the CJQ episode "Mystery of the Lizard Men." While not technically a cel, it appears to be constructed like one (in layers on clear plastic over a painted background).

The following links lead to images from the magazine; these are obviously B&W copies of images produced by Wildey or someone else on the production staff, which is why I've also added the links on the Production Art page.

"Model and Toy Collector" Magazine, 1994

Issue 27 mentioned Jonny Quest on its cover; inside is a mention of the resin kits made by The Shape Of Things and some info on the 1964 and 1987 shows. Here are links to scanned images of the article: page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4.

(Thanks to Martin Sentmanat for both the images and the info.)

"Toon" Magazine Doug Wildey tribute Issue, Fall 1995

Toon Magazine Vol 1. No. 8 included a tribute to Doug Wildey, primary creator of Jonny Quest. Toon was a national, quarterly magazine in the 1990s.

"Kitbuilders Magazine" No. 27, Summer 1998

While the magzaine has a nice cover focusing on Jonny Quest, that front cover is essentially the ONLY reference made to Jonny Quest in the entire publication. The figures of Jonny and Hadji are from the Shape of Things Jonny Quest models from 1994.

(Thanks to Martin Sentmanat for info.)
