Jonathan "Jonny" Quest is the son of Dr. Benton Quest and often accompanies him on his scientific investigations. Jonny has an adoptive brother and best friend, Hadji, and mentor/tutor, Race Bannon. He also has a pet dog named Bandit.

Physical appearance

Jonny is an 11-year-old boy with blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. He is usually in black long-sleeved shirts with blue or light brown pants.

In the 1986 TV series, Jonny has dark eyes instead of blue.


Jonny is a proud Quest, sometimes overly so. Brave, courageous, thoughtful and loyal to his friends and family, but he can also be brash, impulsive and impatient. Jonny is quick on his feet usually able to think of a plan to get him out of any situation.


He was taught Judo,[1] scuba diving, and the handling of firearms.[2] He also learns cartography (map-making) through his mental attitude on his adventures and side-missions.


Early life

Jonny lost his mother at a young age and was then placed under the constant guard of Race Bannon, for his own security and as a precautionary measure not to compromise the scientific value of his father, Dr. Quest.[1]

Jonny Quest (1964 TV series)

When five ships went missing in the Sargasso Sea, within a month's time, Jonny came along on the investigation with Race, Dr. Quest and Bandit. Always the eager explorer, he convinced Race to take him out and have a closer look at one of the wrecked ships. As they were busy exploring the wreckage they were unknowingly being watched by the Lizard Men. As the creatures moved in to attack the small group Jonny's Judo skills were an asset, but ultimately all three of them were captured and learned of a diabolical plot about to unfold in the Sargasso Sea. After being brought below the deck of a wrecked ship it was Jonny's quick thinking that got them out of their makeshift prison, with the help of Bandit.[1]
