Editorial Reviews

In the first feature-length animated movie based on the Hanna-Barbera series, Jonny Quest fans get to meet the women behind the adventurous men. Joining scientist Benton Quest, his plucky son Jonny, bodyguard Race Bannon and Jonny's young pal Hadji are Benton's biologist wife Rachel, Race's ex-wife Jade and young 12-year-old Jessie, who harbors a big secret. Throughout, Team Quest battles the evil schemes of modern-day alchemist Dr. Zin, who has cloned himself and created an army of mutant reptiles in the Peruvian rain forest. The clash there results in a tragedy that changes Jonny's life forever - and later leads to a worldwide pursuit of Zin that includes examining rare Leonardo da Vinci documents in Paris, exploring the Roman catacombs and a final confrontation in the Australian outback. .

4.0 out of 5 stars An engaging animated film! November 9, 2011
Before I start my review, let's get one thing straight here! Jonny's Golden Quest is not and was never meant to be a children's film! Hence the more mature story line and the reason it was only showed on USA TBS or Boomerang. It was made for USA network as one of their "World Premiere Movies." These films were focused toward the people in their 20's to 40's or 50's. The hole idea was to appeal to the generations that had grown up with this series and NOT be kid friendly. People do get shot and die and, in one case, vaporized! That said, I would never call this an adult film! we are probably taking PG to PG-13 or maybe R but NOT G! It was also edited down for time. USA did this with most of the shows it showed to allow for more commercials.
The Jonny quest series was an attempt by hanna-barbera, to make an exciting action animated series that would be shown weekly and would appeal to kids that usually watched cartoons. Back in the 60's the standers were not what they were today and you could get away with more violence. Although, Jonny Quest always had a bulls eye over on it by groups that thought that the violence levels, in kids TV were too high! The series was also done on a tight budget. This meant that certain things would be sacrificed in the name of keeping the costs down!
One of these, most notably, was the story line. for example, Jonny"s mother was omitted as she would have been a 3rdwheel to the action. It would also have cost more to keep such a character cast on the show in terms of animation and voice talent. In the first episode were are told that Jonny "lost his mother" but just how we are never told.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the spirit of Doug Wiley May 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
I've read pros and cons in the 20+ years since its' release but from the first showing on April 3rd 1993 I've felt Mark Young's story line was in the traditional theme Wiley envisioned. I love "Golden Quest" and it's so reminiscent of classic Quest episodes.
Regards..

I remember this movie when it came on TV back in the 90's. I enjoyed it then and I still like it now.

Jonny's Golden Quest was an enjoyable film. Kept my interest the whole time. Not just a combination of the half hour cartoons but a full length movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent continuation of the series! January 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
If you liked the original Jonny Quest, the you'll like this movie. It differs from the original series a bit with the addition of Jonny's mother and Jessie, but it's a cute movie. It does have a bit of violence, so you might want to watch it ad decide if you would like a young child to watch it before letting them see it. It's a classic, though, and an excellent addition to any DVD library.
