** Even still in 2015 his appearance in Spy Quest is very similar to how he was depicted later. He's able to be a little more silly but has no problem plotting to cause some major damage. Strangely enough he gets to order around Tin, Pan and Alley, who while established over several years of Tom and Jerry movies happen to be Siamese cats. Interestingly, ''Comicbook/FutureQuest'' has revealed that he has a Western-style first name: he is Dr. Archimedes Zin. That being said despite Zin's ties to the Yellow Peril trope his home company has not much problem using him today something other companies are wont to do.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Shipping}}: Jonny Quest's boys own adventure feel has often made it subject to HoYay shipping.
** Some have wondered if Dr. Quest and Race have a relationship or if it's really just all business. As Race did have a hetero love interest in Jezebel Jade and Dr. Quest had a wife who at first is only known to have been murdered. As a result whether or not Race/Quest are gay can sometimes be a FandomBerserkButton.
** Jonny and Hadji was tossed around at times as well due to their similar close relationship but of course there isn't much to go on beyond what can be considered subtext.
** There's also Jonny's first red-head girl. Denise Lor, the DamselInDistress in "The Dreadful Doll". At the end of the episode her attempt to kiss Jonny and Hadji ends with them running away from her. So there's that. And also this sometimes leads to obscure shippers to let Denise pair up with the similar red-head from ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfJonnyQuest'' Jessie Bradshaw.

** 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 character's marketability, Dr. Zin seems to have not caused any detectable ruckus.
*** The original version of Zin is arguably much more understated than most yellow perils. He does ''not'' have the stock droopy moustache, talon-like fingernails, or a fashion sense 100 years out of date. Even his accent is relatively subtle. Regrettably, ''Jonny Quest vs. the Cyber-Insects'' went ahead and ''gave'' him a weird robe and a droopy mustache after all -- but fortunately, that film remains the exception, and he's usually depicted as he was in the original series. Interestingly, ''Comicbook/FutureQuest'' has revealed that he has a Western-style first name: he is Dr. Archimedes Zin.

* FairForItsDay: Nearly all the characters from more "exotic" countries - including villains - are little more than ethnic stereotypes of varying degrees by today's standards. This includes one of the ''main characters'', Hadji (though, despite this, Hadji was treated as an equal by Johnny, Race Bannon, and Dr. Quest). This leads to UnfortunateImplications in the case of some of the Asian villains, who clearly show shades of YellowPeril in their characterization.

That said, many of them are presented as capable and intelligent. Many episodes' plots are driven by them being colleagues or old friends of Dr. Quest, whom does take note to respect their achievements and culture.
