In this continuation of the original Jonny Quest series from the 60's, this 13-episode series aired in syndication as part of the Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera weekend cartoon package. The formula was basically the same as the original: Dr. Benton Quest and his long-time friend and aide "Race" Bannon, along with Quest's son Jonny and his friend Hadji Singh, investigate the upper threshold of science and the world of the paranormal, travelling the world and solving puzzles, locating hidden artifacts, battling evildoers such as the evil Dr. Zin, and escaping danger at every turn. The new series did some updating to the original: strong independent teenage girl Jessie Bradshaw was introduced in the fourth episode and became a member of the Quest team.
