Los Angeles -- In the marvelous universe of the Hanna Barbara animation studio was a production team attempting to create a new kind of animation for television. One that was real. No wacky rabbits with the Damon Runyon dialogue or ducks and cats with a stuttered pugilistic lisp and the acid reflex, one liner comeback.
This was an attempt to put on prime time television a drama worthy of any live action programming yet with cutting edge music, realistic dialogue, true global locals and characters with relational emotions and angst. Jonny Quest became a phenomena, after it went off the air.
At the time of its premiere the show put a huge strain on the Hanna Barbara animation machine. With 50 hours of committed programming and inflexible deadlines its labor pool was doing double shifts (this was not Disney) to complete the contracted 25 episodes at a cost to the quality standard of what the Quest team had hyped and the studios's publicity machine had been broadcasting.
Having said that you learn not to give the general store away just a sampling which I just did. So here then is the documentary on the making of the most exciting action thrilled animated series that till this day remains unsurpassed in its writing and production standards.
