Jonny Quest Season 1 - The Dreadful Doll
© 1998-2004, Lyle P. Blosser, Craig Fuqua
Z-11, Suga Doll, 12/4/64, 6/24/65.
Trivia and items of interest:
- (scientific) Dr. Quest equates a bottlenose dolphin with a porpoise, when they are
two totally different animals
- When Dr. Quest asks Denise (and we see him asking, not just hear him asking) if
she can hear him, she replies, "Oui, papa". Papa? Dr. Quest? Not! Maybe she was
- When Race is being held captive in a shack in which a wooden beam laid across the
door is intended to keep him from escaping, Hadji draws the guard away, and Jonny
then removes the beam. Race then opens the door -- inward!
(Reported by Bill Groves) Ted Watson
has this to add: That it opened inward wouldn't necessarily be a problem, but the
cradles (for lack of a better word coming to mind) that hold the beam are on the
wall on each side of the door, instead of on the door itself, where the beam would
have held the door closed. Let's say that the person who installed the cradles thought
the door opened outward, Jonny and Hadji didn't notice, either, and Race hadn't
noticed where the cradles were on his way in--or was he unconscious at that time?
- When Korbay enters Dr. Quest's quarters, he stops while still in the doorway. When
Dr. Quest wakes up, Korbay flees, never having gotten any further. When Dr. Quest
returns to his cabin, he finds a suga doll on his pillow -- but how did it get there?
(Reported by John Boyd)
- When getting ready to blow up the tunnel to the submarine base, Race pushes the
button labelled "1" for the first torpedo, then pushes button "1" again to fire
the second torpedo, even though button "2" is clearly labelled just below button
- Joe on the Forum reports:I've got to hand
this one to my 8.75 year old daughter. She loves J.Q. and also enjoys looking for
flubs now. (Behold, the power of brainwashing). She has found many that are already
posted here, but yesterday she caught one that has not yet been listed. When Jonny
and Hadji go to bed, Jonny is seen with black shorts on, but in the commotion following
where the native invades Dr. Quest's quarters, Jonny appears briefly in reddish/pinkish
colored shorts. Good job, Caitlin. We agree, Joe &
- When Jonny and Hadji are floating around the diving bell, they are shown slightly
too low relative to the diving bell. Refer to the closing credits to see the correct
This is the
second of only two episodes which show Hadji without his turban. In this episode
he's not wearing it when he and Jonny go scuba diving. However, in the episode "Skull
and Double Crossbones", aired just before this one, he wears his turban while scuba
The following scenes in the opening
and closing credits are from this episode:
- Jonny and Hadji swimming down in scuba gear (CC)
- Jonny and Hadji outside diving bell with Dr. Quest inside (CC)
- The character name of the plantation owner's daugher, Denise
Lor, may have been a tribute to an actual singer from the 1950's. Fellow JQ fan
Kenny Harrelson was kind enough to write
with this information, and provided
a link to his "Music for Every Mood" blog entry that contains more information,
including a picture of the singer and a link to one of her songs.
