Mission Statement

QuestFan aims to archive and catalogue all existing knowledge and plausible speculation concerning the The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest and other topics, whether this knowledge is textual, auditory, or visual. Secondly, QuestFan will create new content and foster the growth and development of the Quest series and its fan community.


QuestFan was envisioned by ZeaLitY in August 2006 following the success of the Chrono Compendium, a similar site covering its subject matter in painstaking detail and focused on a series with a cult following. QuestFan formally got off the ground on May 18, 2007.
