A second ''Jonny Quest'' series was syndicated in 1986-87 as part of the second season of ''The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera'', with two new characters: Jessie Bradshaw, whose father was a colleague of Dr. Quest, and Hard Rock, a man made of living stone. This series culminated in two [[MadeForTVMovie made-for-TV movies]] - ''WesternAnimation/JonnysGoldenQuest'' and ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestVersusTheCyberInsects'' - which introduced Race Bannon's daughter, [[ActionGirl Jessie]] (not the same character as Jessie Bradshaw), who would become a recurring character in subsequent incarnations.

to:

%%* CanonDisContinuity* BroadStrokes: The idea that there is a redhead love interest for Jonny crept it's way into each incarnation. In the first the episode "The Deadly Doll" has a redhead thankful for Dr Quest's help in saving her life kisses both Jonny and Hadji who both run off like typical young boys. This of course would not be the only time a redhead fills this role.

* {{Retcon}}: Jessie Bradshaw in the 80s series -> Race Bannon's daughter in the TV movies.[[note]]However, this only assumes that the movies aren't an alternate continuity, if not two separate ones for each movie.[[/note]]
** "Deadly Junket" was essentially a copy of "The Dreadful Doll". So it's Denise Lor -> Jessie Bradshaw -> Jessie Bannon
