Batman and Jonny Quest



Jonny Quest was a pretty cool cartoon for me as a kid. Despite the presence of a cute animal sidekick, they played it pretty straight, which set it apart from most animated programs of the time. I haven't seen an episode in years, I wonder how well they hold up. I am surprised that we haven't seen a big screen adaptation of this property yet. I have read of rumors here and there over the years, so I assume it is only a matter of time.

It would be great to see Batman teamed up with some other animated superheroes. Like Space Ghost, Birdman (When he they were used as a staight hero and not comedians.) Captain Planet, etc.

You have just shown the perfect team-up! Ra's wouldn't stand a chance against Jonny & Haji (and Batman might lend a hand too.)

The episodes hold up very well and that's because of precisely your point that "they played it pretty straight."

Jonny Quest Green Lantern crossover should be done.
