Jonny Quest

I am a huge Jonny Quest fan..
I would watch it avidly in Australia where I lived for seven years.
Never missed an episode and I loved every minute of it,
even the episodes where it would scare the shit out of me...
(the Robot spy episode comes to mind : - jeez just thinking of the robots
suckers clamping themselves to the guard's head gives me all sorts of goosebumps).
I bought the DVD Box set when Hanna-Barbara released it
(Also the Herculoids, but that's another tale) and sat and watched it
over a couple of evenings.
I really hoped it hadn't dated or that it wouldn't live up to my memories of it.
And you know didn't disappoint at all, even after all this time.
 Only had to listen to the opening music and I was smiling like I was an eight year old all over again.
So imagine my delight when someone posted this.
It's in three parts and it's almost as good as the original show itself.
So as a treat to you all. here it is...
Well part 1anyway.

Hey Gary, kudos to you for revealing your 'inner Quest' I have to say that somehow he passed me by, although I have heard of him.

Maybe you can 'cos-play' him at the next show we do?
