TV show description:
The animated adventures of Jonny Quest (Tim Matheson), a pre-teen boy whose father, Dr. Benton Quest (John Stephenson, later Don Messick), is one of the three top scientists in the world.
Dr. Quest is involved in areas of top secret research that takes him all over the world so the government assigns Roger “Race” Bannon (Mike Road) as the Quests’ bodyguard. They are joined by Hadji (Danny Bravo), a young boy from India with some mystical abilities, and scrappy bulldog Bandit (Don Messick).
The team frequently finds themselves matching wits with evil scientists and masterminds like Dr. Zin (Vic Perrin).
A second group of episodes was produced in 1986 with similar storylines but with some different voice performers and new characters. The two series are combined for syndication.
