At the end of The Fall of Rome for the Ides of March, I told my readers "Stay tuned for the Sunday entertainment entry. No zombies tonight, I promise." Instead, I'm marking the 50th anniversary of the original run of Jonny Quest. According to Wikipedia, the final first-run episode aired on March 11, 1965. I reserve March 11th for observances of the anniversary of the Fukushima triple disaster, so the next Sunday entertainment entry--this one--has to do.
Like the show, I begin this entry with the theme music. First the original.
Next, a 21st Century remake using Claymation and the full opening theme, instead of the first 90 seconds only.
Follow over the jump for a documentary about the making of Jonny Quest, presented in three parts.
Jonny Quest Documentary part 1 of 3
This un-credited documentary about the making of the 1960's action adventure tv show is a treat! It runs well over two hours so I took it upon myself to break it into 3 segments, each segment running around 50 minutes each. Jonny Quest has always been a favourite childhood saturday morning memory and I'm so happy to have found this.Jonny Quest Documentary part 2 of 3

The final installment of this great documentary originally presented by Chris Webber.I hope my readers enjoyed the documentary. If they have the patience and time to view it and are Jonny Quest fans, they will find it worth their while.
