The Jonny Quest Digital Style Guide was a merchandising tool issued to potential customers by Cartoon Network in anticipation of the premiere of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest. Using Quicktime navigation, it featured five sections: Program Introduction, Brand Identification, Product Applications, Design Elements and Character Art. One could select a section after watching a preview movie of several clips; the introduction gives a small blurb on the show and the disc's purpose. Brand Identification includes packaging designs, "hang tags", logos, and legal information. Product Applications features four different themes for projects, called Aero, Hydro, Terra, and Questworld. Design Elements include fonts, icons, borders, and backgrounds. The Character Art section details colors for each character and displays several sketches and situational art (both sketched and colored).

Daily Variety ran a news article on the guide, which you can find here. You can download all the images in the digital style guide here (RAR, 10 MB).

Licensing Summit Bag

Two discs were issued for the Santa Monica licensing summit held in March 1996. One is a promo disc, while the other seems to be the Digital Style Guide, but both do not match the file size of the Digital Style Guide itself. Research is ongoing.
