In 1995, Hanna-Barbera Classics, Inc. produced a 5-volume set of character reference guides for a number of its "classic" cartoon creations. Included in the set are volumes on "The Flintstones," "The Jetsons," "Scooby-Doo" and "Jonny Quest." While the 4 non-JQ books are chock-full o' data, trivia and other nuggets that fans will find quite enjoyable, the JQ volume (the slimmest of the lot at 85 pages) suffers by comparison.

The volumes include detailed character descriptions ("Vital Statistics") of all main characters and a number of supporting characters; that is, they all do except the JQ volume, which only has a description of Jonny's character, with mere "character summaries" for the rest of the cast and guests.

One might forgive this fundamental oversight, but the rest of the volume continues to disappoint. The pages are littered with mistakes both large and small; mistakes which will be almost immediately caught by the true classic JQ fan.

For a detailed listing of the many errors, read the errata page. These have been forwarded to the publisher; it is not expected to have any effect, but I felt better after having done it!
