Video of the Day: Classic Cartoon Jonny Quest Reimagined in Stop Motion


Um, the TV nerds among us are totally freaking out right now. Roger D. Evans has recreated the opening sequence of classic 1960’s TV show Jonny Quest in delightfully spot-on stop motion. He writes, “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.” For comparison’s sake, if you aren’t someone who was alive for Jonny Quest or you just can’t quite remember how that intro went, we’ve also included a clip of the original animated opening credits below.
