Jonny Quest(Posted by LsUCIFER on 12/7/12 at 6:13 pm)
Any fans here? When I was a kid (I'm 46 now), it was by far my favorite animated series, just on a different level than normal 60's/70's cartoon fare. I read somewhere that it originally aired in prime time, and high production costs led to its downfall because the animation was so above par at the time. I bought the series on DVD and forced my kid to watch them, lol. I tried to watch them in order but couldn't help but jump forward to episodes like the one with the Komodo dragons, the Pterodactyls, and a few others that were just too cool. Also bought the old Speed Racer series and watched most of those with him as well, though they were much better as a kid. The original Jonny Quest series still holds up pretty well today - it was just so ahead of its time compared to other animation of its era. In recent years, I think Avatar: The Last Airbender is the best animated series. I watched those several times over with my kid, so he returned the favor by watching Jonny Quest and Speed Racer with me.
