Above, the cover for the 1964 Fall Preview
issue of TV Guide. Right, an ad for new Friday-night
shows, including Jonny Quest and The Entertainers.

by the time the show aired, contract disputes with "Zezebel Zade's" agent led to

lady of fortune," much to the delight of fans. ;-)
Left ABC ranks Jonny Quest right up there
with falling in love in this ad on p. 20 for the new Friday night line-up. Here's
