Jonny Quest

I have never really liked TV. I get too restless and feel like I am wasting time. However, I have a soft spot for Hanna-Barbera Production's The Adventures of Jonny Quest. Hanna-Barbera is an animated show power house, creating shows like, Birdman, Space Ghost, The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, The Flinstones and The Jetsons.

As I child I programed the X and Y coordinates of our cutting edge C-band satellite system on to Cartoon Network to watch Jonny Quest every week with my little brother. The show has gadgets, vehicles, villains and awesome locations. Think of a pubescent James Bond without the romantic element. Here are the opening and ending credits. The show only ran for one season, 1964-1965 and is available on Amazon.
