Above, the cover for the 1964 Fall Preview issue of TV Guide. Right, an ad for new Friday-night shows, including Jonny Quest and The Entertainers.

Below The infamous Second Episode Title Error! This episode aired as "Arctic Splashdown," but its working title, "Splashdown Antarctica," is sometimes listed.
Above TV Guide's preview of the show. Actually by the time the show aired, contract disputes with "Zezebel Zade's" agent led to her dismissal. Luckily, Jezebel Jade was available to fill the gap as the "mysterious lady of fortune," much to the delight of fans. ;-)

Left ABC ranks Jonny Quest right up there with falling in love in this ad on p. 20 for the new Friday night line-up. Here's a close-up of the Jonny Quest ad.
