"Jonny Quest" DVD Alternate Set
By Craig Fuqua
looks like the front of the "Jonny Quest" DVD set released by Warner Bros. in
the U.S. and Canada on May 11, 2004, it's not. This is a set of four
individually-packaged DVDs I bought at the Altitunes store at the Orlando
International Airport on July 2. They were shrink-wrapped and taped together
with a retail price of $64.99. The normal set was also four discs, but they were
held in a foldout in a slipcase.
The catalog numbers are H2516 through H2519. I'm betting there's another
catalog number representing the set of four cases.
Differences in the front covers to the regular DVD are: The title of this set
is "Jonny Quest / The First Season" instead of "Jonny Quest / The Complete First
Season," and they list the episode numbers in the lower left corner.
The backs of the
keepcase inserts are modified versions of the episode listings found in the
slipcase set. The "boilerplate" copyright information at the bottom seems to be
copied directly from the back of the slipcase, but the information on each
keepcase mentions that the French subtitles are "Dubbed in Quebec," which makes
me wonder if this set was intended for sale in that province. When I check
Amazon.ca, I see the slipcase version for sale, so I don't think this was a set
for Canada in general. Hi-resolution

I don't have any definitive information on why there are two versions of the
JQ DVD set. The Quebec theory is as good as any. Another possibility is that
this version is only available in speciality shops, like at airports.
Here are all four
Please post a note in the forum if you have any information on this set of JQ
DVDs! Also, keep checking back here to see if I've learned anything new.
