Bannon, Dr. Quest, Mr. Corvin. From the scene at the airport, as the Quests
are about to depart for India (see episode screen grab at right). (images

Jonny prepares to try the Indian rope trick
From the scene at the start of the episode where Jonny is attempting to make the rope
rise into the air by playing on Hadji's Indian flute. (see episode screen grab at
right) However, this appears be a composite cel, as Bandit's position never appears
during the episode as shown in the cel when Jonny's position is as shown. For that
matter, there is no exact match for Bandit in this part of the episode (although
a few frames are fairly close); it may be that the Bandit figure is from another
scene or even different episode.
Jonny tries the Indian rope trick
From the scene at the start of the episode where Jonny tries to make the rope rise into
the air by playing on Hadji's Indian flute (Hadji has assured him it was easy).

Jonny tries to convince Bandit to get into his carrier
From the scene at the airport where Bandit has to get into his carrier to make the trip
(although we all know he didn't stay there for long). (see episode screen grab at
right) (image courtesy Mark Morehead)
Dr. Quest on runaway truck
From the scene where the tiger photographic hunt has taken an unexpected turn, and Dr. Quest's
driver has abandoned the good doctor in the back of the vehicle alone (see episode
screen grab at right).
From the scene where Race is about to pull down the map of India (see episode screen
grab at right); you can even see the map ring in his right hand.
Here is another cel from the same scene, just a few frames prior to the cel shown above. Notice what
the choice of background does to the feel of the cel; the gun in the image is NOT
part of the original cel.
Here's a link to another cel from the
same scene; note slightly different position of arm. And yet another cel
from this scene; this one shows
Race just before he reaches up to pull down the map.
A background painting showing the map used in the scenes mentioned above; note the changes that have occurred
in world maps since this episode.
From the scene where the railway car is freed from the engine to go freewheeling back down the
mountainside (see episode screen grab at right).
From the scene right
before where Race had to grab the wheel of the car they were riding in and make
a sharp turn into a side street to avoid being hit by an oncoming truck (see episode
screen grab at right). (image courtesy Joel Elkins)
From the scene right
after Bandit extinguishes the explosives fuse, as Race struggles to free himself
from his bonds (see episode screen grab at right).
