Jonny Quest turns 45

Happy 45th Anniversary to my all time favorite cartoon as a kid!!!! This one had it all, Scientists, evil villains of all kinds, awesome sci-fi gadgets and aircraft, Monsters, Dragons, Dinosaurs, and Mummy’s, OH MY!!! And a couple of kids with nothing better to do than go on a world wide adventure with their dad and a cool James Bond type body guard nammed Race Bannon!! What was rare for a main stream cartoon at the time was that the bad guys often got shot and killed or crushed by flying boats or massive boulders!!! I remember one episode where Jonny’s dad hollers; Jonny…Hadji, grab some guns and shoot anything that moves!!!  Hanna Barbera put this classic out on September 18th 1964 and the show aired on ABC and only lasted one season!!!  Truly a masterpiece and has place in history as one of the many classics created in the 1960’s!!

starship mish mash from the series, Enterprise!!!

It’s been a while since I have gotten anything Star Trek up, so here is a high res of the Xindi cargo ship that later turns into Degra’s ship.  A low res was posted a while back, and with this one you get a better view of all the little details.  Next are a variety of Xindi probes, and just like grade school, the chosen version would get a star and happy face drawn next to it, HAAAA!  It’s followed by a little ship from episode #37 “Precious Cargo”; I loved when we would get the opportunity to come up with ships out of the ordinary, and this one was a fav to work on!!!  A real frumpy ship with a real gritty slice of external piping and details.  Finally comes the variations of what would be the new Andorian battle ship.  The 4 versions covered a broad gammut of styles, and in the end the upper left idea was chosen and nicknamed the Andorlactica because of it’s Battlestar Galactica (1970’s) front end resemblance!!!  So with that, thanks for the fun week and all the fine comments about all the fun pin up stuff!!!  Have a great Weekend and catch up with things promised to post on Monday!
