Roger Evans, a Western artist who lives in Utopia, Texas (population: 241), also happens to be an obsessive fan of Jonny Quest. He’s given himself the challenge of reanimating the 1960s opening titles of the Hanna-Barbera series using stop motion animation. You can follow its scene by scene completion–currently more than two-thirds finished–on Roger’s website. Every shot is meticulously documented with behind-the-scenes photos and a generous description of how he created the sets, models, animation and effects. There’s a lot of love in this project, as well as a reminder of the lasting impact that a quality animated TV series can have on its viewers.
