WAC is bringing the classics to Wondercon!

Spread the love
Actors Patrick Duffy, Michael Gray, Julie Nathanson & Daniel Zaldivar, Animation Historian/Author Jerry Beck and some Surprise Guests

I’m a kid again thanks to Warner Archive Collection (WAC) Wondercon Panels with the Man From Atlantis TV movie pilot, the entire original Jonny Questanimated series, and a special 10thanniversary celebration of Warner Archive Collection itself. WAC guests include Man From Atlantis star Patrick Duffy and Shazam!, Michael Gray, Julie Nathanson and Daniel Zaldivar, and the original voice of Hadji on Jonny Quest. I watched all of these as a kid on tv (reruns I’m not that old) and it’s so cool that we get the chance to attend panels with them. I’ve always wanted to talk to anyone about Jonny Quest but especially Hadji. I loved the animation and found the family dynamic fascinating. Now that WAC has remastered them I plan to add them to my blu-ray collection! I can’t wait to share these gems with friends!
