That was fantastic, what a find! Love the way the guy combined modern 3D animation with the old-school sensibility. Too bad his Kickstarter project to fun the creation of a full episode was not successful. Which is kind of ironic, since the original show was cancelled due to high production costs, despite huge popularity.

Wikipedia wrote
Hanna-Barbera developed the technique of limited animation in order to cut corners and meet the tighter scheduling and budgetary demands of television. As opposed to full animation, this means that characters generally move from side to side with a sliding background behind them and are drawn mostly in static form, with only the moving parts (like running legs, shifting eyes, or talking mouths) being re-drawn from frame to frame on a separate layer.

This was particularly true of Jonny Quest. The series' visual style was unusual for its time, combining a fairly realistic depiction of human figures and objects with the limited animation technique .... The series made heavy use of rich music scores, off-screen impacts with sound effects, reaction shots, cycling animations, cutaways, scene-to-scene dissolves, and abbreviated dialogue to move the story forward, without requiring extensive original animation of figures. For example, objects would often reverse direction off-screen, eliminating the need to show the turn, or a running character would enter the frame sliding to a stop, allowing a single drawn figure to be used.

Ha ha ha. ^^^

Loved that show. They made a JQ movie in the 80's ish. It was true to form and the voices even sounded the same. I taped it and have it somewhere around here.

Bandit was badazz. Known to strike shear terror in hinterlandian doggies.

Re: Jonny Quest was awesome.

2 minutes for opening and closing credits... that's the way to save on animation.

The closing credits were actually far superior as they actually included the famous "Get this bucket moving Race" scene:



And of course the Jonny Quest stand up camelboarding at the very end.

Re: Jonny Quest was awesome.

Brings back memories, we got our first color TV and cable at the same time. I remember watching Johnny Quest, Speed Racer,Kimba the White Lion, Gigantor, and Fireball XL5.
