Jonny Quest: The Documentary

There are a lot of amazing things on the internet wedged between the layers of ... well, you know Sturgeon's law and all that.

I happened upon this home made documentary on the origins of one of my all-time favorite television shows  JONNY QUEST.  Made with a degree of scholarship and affection for the series, the mediamaker used readily available Mac tools and a lot of effort to create something you should see.   In fact, I'm pleased he used those simple tools because as he states in a later chapter - the restrictions often led to unique solutions.

The entire film is broken down into 27 chapters - each one a glimpse into the creative process and history of television cartoons as we know them today.  I'm going to post them a chapter at a time - one a day - for the month.  Please feel free to share these videos and come back every day around this time to get the  next chapter.

Jonny Quest was broadcasted many years ago in Spain. I remeber be very fond of the stone warrior. And still like Bandit, too.
