The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, also known by its title card as Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures, is a science fiction/action-adventure animated television series, produced by Hanna-Barbera. It is a sequel to the 1960's series, Jonny Quest, and to a lesser extent the two TV films aired a few years before Real Adventures (although it ignores a couple of plot points). It completely ignores the short-lived 80's series, which also attempted to continue the Quest team's adventures.

- This is the only mainstream incarnation to show Jonny and Hadji in their mid-teens. Everything, except for the alternate universe series, Future Quest, has depicted them as their 1960s preteen incarnations. Because of this, it would appear that The Real Adventures is no longer canon, as intended by the people involved.
- The show was intended to be one season of 65 episodes, but production problems, cut it down to 52. The series was split between two production groups with vastly different styles in terms of continuity and animation style, although nothing to big, because both sets of episodes were aired at the same time. Due to the differences the two styles have got the labelled as two different "seasons", which was how Warner Home Video and the Warner Archive Collection treated them when they were released onto DVD.
