REMASTERED means REVISED Jonny Quest DVD Box Set

"When the JONNY QUEST DVD Box Set was finally released I was one of the first to buy it. The wait for these fantastic episodes was finally over. And what a long wait its been! What a shame it is then that the "politically correct" people at Warner Brothers found it their duty to EDIT, that's right, EDIT these classic cartoons! A typical EDIT from DISC ONE "Pursuit of the Po-Ho" A purple Race Bannon confronts the Po-Hos who have Dr. Quest held hostage with,"All right you ignorant savages, get a load of Aquizio you heathen monkeys!" The "REMASTERED" version is a watered down, "Get a load of Aquizio!" All the while Race's mouth is moving but no words come out! At least no words that some idiots at Warners find offensive. Who are they and how dare they think they can just EDIT someone elses work! What's even more outrageous is that for some reason they don't have a problem showing the UN-EDITED versions on their own CARTOON NETWORK! Get it together guys and RE-ISSUE the Jonny Quest Box Set UNTOUCHED, UN-EDITED, and truly REMASTERED as your packaging states! And the next time you think its "your job" to EDIT a classic cartoon, DON"T! Thank GOD your EDIT MONKEY kept his stinking paws off the LOONEY TUNES Box Set!"
Please don't let these classics be lost!

"Please don't let these classics be lost to another generation!
The few of the original series that have been made available on VHS from Hanna-Barbera and Turner have been smash-hits with both my nephew AND my nieces. Ian, at five, wanted us to be Dr. Quest and Jonny, and we spent many hours running about the house and yard with walkie-talkies on Quest adventures (my wife got to play Roger "Race" Bannon). Kate and Kris (5 and 7) love to dance to the theme music I was fortunate enough to find on Napster in its heyday. Mary Madison (4) wants to know: "Is Hadji a girl or a boy?"
Turner Home Entertainment has done a very poor job of releasing and supporting this great series -- the few they have done are so filled with promotional crap for its Cartoon Network that it's nearly unbearable. It takes five minutes of fast-forwarding just to get to the feature. And any "Classic Quest" fan will tell you the new "Real Adventures" just don't cut the mustard (more like the cheese).I urge all fans to review here and sign up for release notification to help pressure Turner into properly re-mastering and releasing the entire 1964-65 series (26 episodes).
A Hacked, quicky transfer

"When I found out that all 26 episodes of the classic Jonny Quest were released on DVD I was stunned. I felt that finally the HB execs are getting it together and recognizing the good stuff. After watching the first two episodes I realized I had been DUPED! Editing dialogue to be PC, using the same ending credits for all episodes and no credit for Doug Wildey. A (...)release of the best classic prime-time animation of the 1960's.
After I finish watching all the episodes, I'm donating the DVD's to my local public library. I know better now to read the reviews before buying. I think Warner Brothers and Hana-Barbera owe all of us an explanation for this hack-job. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO DICK WITH IT?
When I pay for DVD's, I expect the real deal without edits and deception. I can only hope that they fix it with another release with everything intact except the insert commercials. And you can bet they know that we will buy it again. Greedy, corporate pigs!

"Just found out that this SUPER series is finally coming to DVD, ...Santa got my letter. This show along with "The Flintstones" is truly a favorite of mine. It's better than the new Jonny. It only lasted one season, but was a great adventure show for the whole family. I like that phrase "For the whole family", you don't have too many shows like these anymore.
