Jonny Quest, also known as The New Adventures of Jonny Quest, is an American animated science fiction action-adventure television series produced by Hanna-Barbera, airing for one season from 1986 to 1987, with thirteen episodes. It is a revival attempt of the original series that ran for twenty-six episodes between 1964-65.

In many ways it is a second season, but it has little to no connection to its predecessor, in terms of returning friends and foes, aside from Dr. Zin. The violence has also been toned down compared to the previous series. Jade, Race's love interest, was supposed to come back with a fleshed out backstory, but plans seemed to fall through when the show wasn't strong enough in the ratings and was cancelled after thirteen episodes. The original intention was for a production of thirty-nine episodes.[citation needed]

A new addition to the team was the rock giant, Hardrock, who was given a formal introduction during the series. He never appeared again after this series, and the concept of a rock giant on the team was mocked in the Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures episode, Rock of Ages.

The one-time character of Jessie Bradshaw, who appeared in Deadly Junket was supposed to be recurring, with an unused backstory of her knowing Jonny from when she was little.[citation needed] The unused concepts of Jessie and Jade seemed to have been given another chance (and even combined) with the TV film soft reboot, Jonny's Golden Quest.
