From Wikipedia
Jonny Quest is the original American science fiction/adventure animated television series that started the franchise. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for Screen Gems, and created and designed by comic-book artist Doug Wildey.

Inspired by radio serials and comics in the action-adventure genre, including Doc Savage ,Tom Swift,and John Carter of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, it featured more realistic art, characters, and stories than Hanna-Barbera’s previous cartoon programs.Also several actors like Jeff Chandler ,inspired Race Bannon,a named created two previous Doug Wildey characters. It was the first of several Hanna-Barbera action-based adventure shows, which would later include Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, and ran on ABC in prime time on early Friday nights for one season from 1964 to 1965.

After spending two decades in reruns, during which it appeared on all three major United States television networks of the time, new episodes were produced for syndication in 1986. Two telefilms, a comic-book series, and a modernized revival series, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, were produced in the 1990s.
