My Doggie Dave
The main characters visit Quest Bowl, a bowling alley apparently owned and operated by Jonny Quest and Hadji. Neither character is named or has any lines. Hadji pulls a lever to make changes to the bowling alley, such as to drop a disco ball and to reveal an advanced bowling alley challenge.
The logo for Quest Bowl has "Quest" stylized like the "Jonny Quest" title from the original series. The art above the bowling pins features the Dragonfly and one of Dr. Zin's robot spiders. The advanced bowling alley area also features a robot spider that holds bowling pins.
Jonny and Hadji are in line to a bouncy castle. Both characters are dressed up, with Jonny in a suit with a bowtie, and Hadji wearing a pink turban and matching coat, and their arms are linked. When the bouncy castle deflates, Jonny and Hadji are bounced around and fall out with the other characters. Jonny is later seen thrown into an ambulance.
Jelly Wrestle Rumble!
Jonny and Hadji are cheering in the audience at a wrestling event.
Welcome to Jellystone
Jonny and Hadji work on the set for the town's film. They create large black planks to use in scenes to make it widescreen. Hadji speaks his first only line of the series in this episode: in response to Shazaam saying, "Nice job on those black movie bars, fellows," Hadji responds, "Thank you."
Behind the scenes
Series writer and storyboarder Melody Iza commented on Jonny and Hadji's relationship on Twitter:
- "I don’t think we were able to have anything that explicitly said or showed it but they’re married".
- "While we didn’t get to be explicit about it, we definitely believe they’re happily married".
