The following appeared in the Akron Beacon Journal. The citation is Heldenfelds, R.D. (1996-08-26). "7TH HEAVEN' MAY WELL BE TOO DOWN-TO-EARTH NEW WARNER BROS. SHOW FIRST ARRIVAL IN EXPECTED WAVE OF EARLY-EVENING FAMILY PROGRAMMING THIS SEASON". Akron Beacon Journal. Only the Quest portions have been presented.


Fans of the action cartoon Jonny Quest get a treat beginning today when The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest premieres. The half-hour daily show has been updated from its '60s origins (for one thing, the Quest team now includes a girl) and has made some improvements in the animation. It's true to the violent original, however, with an opening episode full of explosions, murder and mayhem. Recommended only to die-hard adult fans, and even they will wonder how characters this smart can do some incredibly dumb things.

Hanna-Barbera, the studio making Jonny Quest, is now part of the Turner TV empire, which should explain why the series will run on three Turner channels: 8 a.m. on TNT, 4:35 p.m. on WTBS, and 8 p.m. on the Cartoon Network.
