* [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids/WesternAnimation What Do You Mean It's For Kids?]]: This was one of Hanna Barbera's major steps into the action genre. This show aired in prime time, so it was likely trying to be engaging for both kids and adults. As a result, this show was easily able to survive on Saturday morning for decades. Still, today some might wonder why a show with so much FairForItsDay material is seen as a "kids'" show.

** Speaking specifically of Dr. Zin, he is very much one of the trope codifiers for the Yellow Peril stereotype. In later productions Zin still maintains these elements but also is allowed to be a bit more funny than he was in the original series. Even still in 2015 his appearance in Spy Quest is very similar to how he was depicted in the 80s and 90s. Despite uproar over another Yellow Peril characters marketability, Dr Zin seems to have not caused any detectable ruckus.

* BaseBreaker: Though she only got to appear once, Jessie Bradshaw in the '80s series wasn't very liked by classic Quest fans for feeling like a shoehorned-in love interest for Jonny. Those who liked the character wished that she could appear more, although [[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures Jessie Bannon]] would more or less wind up filling the original Jessie's part.



** Speaking specifically of Dr. Zin, he is very much one of the trope codifiers for the Yellow Peril stereotype. In later productions Zin still maintains these elements but also is allowed to be a bit more humerus than he was in the original series. Even still in 2015 his appearance in Spy Quest is very similar to how he was depicted in the 80s and 90s. Despite uproar over another Yellow Peril characters marketability, Dr Zin seems to have not caused any detectable ruckus.
* FirstInstallmentWins: The remakes and sequel series are of arguably superior quality to the original 60's show, but the original is much more memorable due to its sheer {{Camp}} factor and its theme song.

* [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids/WesternAnimation What Do You Mean It's For Kids?]]: The TV movies. The original show...probably not (unless you think the ethnic stereotypes are too offensive and the action is too intense). Remember that it aired on prime-time in the 1960s (although in later reruns it aired on Saturday mornings), just like ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.

* {{Narm}}: One episode features an Indian chief who is ''very'' obviously voiced by the same actor as Race, to the point that it's genuinely surprising it never turns out he's Race in disguise.

* FairForItsDay: Nearly all the characters from more "exotic" countries - including villains - are little more than ethnic stereotypes of varying degrees. This includes one of the ''main characters'', Hadji. This leads to UnfortunateImplications in the case of some of the Asian villains, who clearly show shades of YellowPeril in their characterization.
