Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

DaveStevens_JonnyQuest#5_1986_100It’s another episode of our Saturday Matinee series! Every Saturday, I post a link to a movie or short feature that you can watch right here in your browser! If you have an idea for something that I can share with others, drop me a line!

This week, we have the first two episodes of Jonny Quest — including the pilot episode, which is before they added Hadji! I used to love this cartoon and still think it’s one of the greatest adventure shows ever. With a heavy pulp influence, I think it’s well worth your time — whether you’re viewing it with nostalgic eyes or for the very first time!

Enjoy!

    Johnny Quest remains one of my fondest childhood memories.
    The music alone brings back a lot of the wonder I felt, sitting on the floor, watching thos cartoons.
    (which means I was sort of marked by pulp and SF at an early age, I guess).
    Thanks for sharing!

    That Dave Stevens cover may be the best thing to ever come out of the original Jonny Quest IMHO. Never much cared for the original show, though I did like the late 90s reboot (and its Dark Horse tie-in comic.) Probably because I would rather watch the Herculoids or Space Ghost if I’m going old school Hanna Barbera.

    So the entire series came out on 3 sets of DVD’s a few years back. I watched them all with my kids, and they are still every bit as good as I rember. It was a trend seting series.

  4. Jonny Quest is Ground Zero for everything that came later in my life as a writer. The Beatnik Spy series is basically Jonny Quest for grownups. It’s too bad little boys don’t have anything as cool as this today. My fave episode: the evil scientist in the volcano with a pet Pteranodon.
