After his castle is taken over, Valiant, Prince of Thule (Robby Benson), has a dream, in which King Arthur (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) calls him to Camelot. Valiant heeds the advice of the dream, and sets out on a quest to find the famed kingdom. Along the way, he meets two new friends, Arn (Michael Horton) (a peasant) and Rowanne (Noelle North) (the blacksmith's daughter), who join him on his quest to become a Knight of The Round Table. After arriving in Camelot, the plot focuses on the three friends' lives, as they strive to become knights.Written by
Rowanne, Sir Bryant, and Denys are all completely original characters, but each could be interpreted as having at least a few similarities to ones in Hal Foster's comic strip. In the comic, Valiant and Arn both love Ilene, while in this show they are both shown to have feelings for Rowanne (albeit the two reflecting on this is temporary). Though not a Moor, Sir Tristram is one of the earliest knights to befriend Valiant and often seen with him and Sir Gawain, very much like Bryant. Although not related to anyone noteworthy as Denys was, Geoffrey also found himself free from a cruel home situation and became the most developed of Valiant's squires. See more »
A Great Cartoon and a Link to Website Devoted to It
This was a great cartoon based on a long-running comic strip that presented an intriguing look at Arthurian legend. It had great continuity and realistic characters that developed over the course of its 65 episode run. Adventure, romance, humor, and family themes were all part of the show - in other words, something for everyone. Personally, Merlin was my favorite character because of his wisdom and his humor. Merlin was always on top of the situation, and there wasn't a character on the show who did not respect him as a friend, mentor, or adversary. >
