Jonny Quest Opening Titles from Roger D. Evans on Vimeo.
Jim Leftwich sent me the link to this excellent stop-motion recreation of the opening title sequence for Jonny Quest. Wow!
In 1964, Jonny Quest aired to rave reviews as the first, adult action/adventure cartoon in prime time. It had cool jazz music by Hoyt Curtin and terrific, high contrast pen and ink design work by Doug Wildey. As an animator and long time JQ junkie, I had always wanted a set of Jonny Quest action figures but, due to high production costs, the show only lasted one season; not long enough to spawn any kind of serious toys or other merchandising tie-ins. So, almost 50 years later, I made my own. Here is my Valentine to one of the coolest, if not THE coolest, cartoons ever to spin up the imagination of a 53-year-old man now going on six. Enjoy!
