The long in development live-action "Jonny Quest" movie, has hit another snag because of complaints the screenplay is based on the 1964 ABC Hanna-Barbera animated TV series, that is now being labeled as 'racist':
"...set in the Florida Keys, 'Jonny Quest' is a young boy who lost his mother at an early age. Though unenthusiastic in his schooling, he is intelligent, brave, adventurous and generally athletic with a proficiency in judo, scuba diving and the handling of firearms.
"'Dr. Benton C. Quest' is Jonny's father and a scientific genius who works for the U.S. Government. He is considered to be one of the three top scientists in the world with interests and technical know-how spanning many fields.
"Raising Jonny as a single father, he is conscientious and decent, though willing and able to take violent decisive action when necessary for survival or defense.
"'Race Bannon' is a special agent, bodyguard and pilot from 'Intelligence One'. He is an expert in judo, having a third-degree black belt as well as the ability to defeat noted experts in various martial arts, including sumo wrestlers."
