    Somehow the rock etchings in black and white wouldn't translate into viewing entertainment on the Internet.

    The '86 ones were called "The New Adventures of Johnny Quest."

    The original Jonny Quest cartoons were produced and broadcast in the 1964-1965 season on ABC and featured young Jonny Quest and his scientist/adventurer father, Dr. Benton Quest. Jonny was accompanied by his best friend Hadji and the dog, Bandit, on many adventures. In 1986, Hanna-Barbera created 13 all-new episodes. These were aired as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. There were new characters, including Jessie Bannon, Race's daughter. The animation is of slightly higher quality than the original, but their adventures seem a little more far-fetched than in the original series' run.
    Here's Jonny's Wiki article:

    Well, I've learned my fact of the day!

    Jonny Quest is a ten- or eleven-year-old boy (there is some question about his exact age; it is never stated in any of the show's episodes), the son of Dr. Benton Quest, "one of the three top scientists in the world," and apparently something of a Renaissance man; his scientific and technical know-how spans many fields. Mrs. Quest is dead, possibly the victim of a plot against Dr. Quest, and mentioned only in the pilot episode (Mystery of the Lizard Men). Government fears that Jonny could "fall into the wrong hands," resulted in the assignment of a bodyguard, Roger "Race" Bannon, from "Intelligence One". Bannon guards and tutors Jonny and Dr. Quest's adopted second son, Hadji (his original last name is never mentioned), an eleven-year-old Indian boy (his age was stated in one of the show's episodes, Pirates from Below) who is seldom seen without his jewelled turban and Nehru jacket. The Quests have a compound in the Florida Keys (the particular island is named Palm Key), but their adventures take them all over the world. Jonny's pet, a small white bulldog named Bandit, often provides comic relief although at least once (Skull and Double Crossbones) he was instrumental in foiling the bad guys.

    Dr. Quest travels the globe studying scientific mysteries, which get him into scrapes with foes that range from espionage robots and electrical monsters to Egyptian mummies. Although most menaces were unique to the episode, one recurring nemesis is known as Dr. Zin, an Asian mastermind. Race Bannon's mysterious old flame, Jezebel Jade, also occasionally appears.

    Tim Matheson performed the voice of Jonny.

    This entry jumped out at me:
    Simpsons (1989-present)

    That's just impressive.


    I was also glad to see the silverhawks mentioned. I was talking with friends about 80's cartoons a while back, and none of them remembered the silverhawks.
