JONNY QUEST - Radical Fan Made Stop-Motion Opening Title Sequence

TV Videos Animated by Joey Paur

I used to watch Jonny Quest when I was a young kid, I actually appreciate the show more now than I did when I was younger, because it was a more adult oriented cartoon. I think it would make for a pretty cool film today though. Roger D. Evans recently created this awesome recreation of the opening title sequence of the series using custom made toys, stop motion animation and some CGI work. This thing turned out to be pretty awesome, he captured the fantistic pulp art feel that fans loved about the shows.

Here's a note from the creator:

In 1964, Jonny Quest aired to rave reviews as the first, adult action/adventure cartoon in prime time. It had cool jazz music by Hoyt Curtin and terrific, high contrast pen and ink design work by Doug Wildey. 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. Enjoy!
