‘Real Adventures of Jonny Quest’ Headed to DVD
Late in the week, Warner Home Video announced that The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest will finally come to DVD on February 17, 2009.
To date, just "Escape to Questworld" has been released as part of their TV Premiere sampler line and that was back in 2004.
The two-disc The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest – Season 1, Volume 1 will contain the first 13 episodes and retail for $26.99. The set will offer a bonus interview with show producers and retrospective on the impact of the original animated series.
The revival ran a total of 52 episodes airing from August 26, 1996 through April 16, 1997. It had a long, troubled gestation period which saw talent come and go during the production of the episodes leading to varying quality. Jonny and Hadji were joined by Race Bannon’s heretofore unseen daughter Jessie. It failed to live up to the quality of the original adventure series form the 1960s.
