    Don't let one instance of a single line change steer you away from what is arguably the Greatest Adventure Series Ever made. (The Best non-superhero one for sure).

    For the record...Race's line "Head's up, you Heathen Monkeys!" in 'Pursuit of the Po-Ho' was muted from the audio by some clueless, overly-sensitive do-gooder. That's it. (In fact, the line was even left in the subtitles!).

    If this single, micro-edit 'Ruins' the series for you, consider that YOU are being overly sensitive yourself. Yeah. It was a dumb thing to do, so say the one line aloud and move on. the rest of the episode is wonderful...as are the other 25 episodes. Don't miss out because of one bad moment. That's ridiculous. It probably will never be restored, so accept that and enjoy the show. It's worth it.

    All 26 Brilliant episodes are here. (There was only one season of the original due to very high costs to make it so well. A pity). This show is a wonder. A masterpiece of the art form which has yet to be equalled in almost 50 years.

    Jonny Quest was remade a few times to varying degrees of success (I worked on some of them myself), but none of them approach the original.

    The animation, background painting, design work, ect., are state of the art and look better than most shows that are on now. The writing is sharp, exciting, and very imaginative. The Music is Incredibly good and exciting....the theme alone will make your pulse pound. The voice acting is pitch perfect and natural sounding..

    ....and, more often than not, the bad guys actually get killed! (Take THAT Batman)

    I loved this show as a kid and could watch it over and over....but the rare thing is that I STILL love it as an adult, when so many other childhood favorites do not hold up over time. If anything, as an animation Pro myself (inspired in no small part by my love of this series) I like it even more. Most Pros agree that it's still one of the best.

    Don't be dissuaded by the fact the series was made in the early 60's. it has aged well and I have hooked many a contemporary kid on this show. Cool is cool.

    I'll say it one more time: This series is a masterpiece. Buy it.

    Someone tell me WHAT was the point in editing for "political correctness" a 1960's cartoon? There is nothing in Jonny Quest that a child today would understand to be offensive, and those of us who loved Jonny Quest when we were young grew up just fine with Race Bannon yelling "you ignorant savages" to the Po-Ho. I would like to suggest to the "ignorant suits" at the WB to re-release Jonny Quest as it was originally. It was perfect.

                Comments about Jonny Quest: The Complete First Season DVD:

                I was never in to Jonny Quest growing up. A few months ago I saw the stop-motion fan film of the opening titles and was so excited I purchased this without ever seeing a single episode. I have to say it's one of the best animated series I've seen (and I'm and avid animation fan). Great stories and filled with imagination--classic action and adventure from the 60s! My only minor gripe is that with all the elaborate packaging for the box set, no where does it tell you what episodes are on what disk. There IS a list of episodes, but there's no way to tell how many are on which ones. Maybe WB can reprint the box for the next run. The episodes themselves look great and there's no beating that intro theme song!

                      Great packaging, though I the DVD case said what episodes were on which disk. Other than that, it's a great, high-quality presentation of a wonderful series.
