The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest is a re-imaging of the classic 60's television. Don't expect the same kind of format that the old one had to be here. It's not really even in the same spirit as the classic series. For one in the old series it was mainly the adults (Dr. Benton Quest and Race) who did much of the problem solving and Johnny was mostly an active spectator. This time around Johnny and his friends are the ones solving the problems. The problems are also not quite the same, but then again we already have the classic series to enjoy. This one may be different, but it stands on its own merits.
When I first watched this show I was a bit put off. One of the things that bugged me was the show seemed to try hard to be cutting edge with the use of some computer generated animation scenes that were used when anybody went into a virtual reality called Questworld. As off putting as this was at first when I finally sucked it up and just saw the show for how the plot develops it was clear this wasn't some flash in the pan production. Eventually the whole Questworld thing kind of phased out of the series in turn for more plots involving the real world.I won't go so far as to say it's as groundbreaking as the original, but I will say they were pretty creative with this show.Read more ›
A surprise is that the 13 episode Second season rarely (if ever) surfaces in any discussion of Jonny Quest! All S2 episodes are good (some GREAT) and worthy of release. Fans should join together to get these episodes released so we can enjoy the COMPLETE series.
Please add to Amazon reviews so we can let the studio's know demand exists for the 13 episode season 2!!!
Testifying to the quality of the shows does not tell much of the quality of the dvds; it is already known that the shows themselves were awesome. The special features are what make a dvd pack. There is, sadly, only one special feature on this set, and that is the "Modernizing a Classic" segment where creators of this incarnation of the show speak for about 12 minutes, revealing their insight in creating an epic show.
One minor complaint about that special feature is that it tantalizes the viewer with short glimpses at rare material such as character art and biographies, as well as concept art. I know that I would be most appreciative if this material was put out, and I am sure that I am not the only one. Some of this material could do well in a DVD pamphlet to be bundled inside the box, as the inside of this box is barren, and it has empty clips just begging for a pamphlet to hold.
As another suggestion, I present the motion to include the "lost episode" that was featured in many preview clips, and which contributed many scenes (Jessie on horseback, Jonny running from the attack helicopter) to the Canyon Intro of each episode.
My desire is that the dvd publishers will take these suggestions that we have made to heart, and allow them to manifest in the next dvd bundle of the series (3 more to go), but my sincere hope is that everyone who was a fan will pick up this classic so that the show will not die another death.

Warner has done the same thing with Knots Landing. That show ran for 14 seasons so I will be dust before Warner releases all of that series! What they don't seem to get is people lose interest when it's dragged out like this...20th Century Fox has done the same with Voyage To The Bottom Of The... Read More
