If you’re a child of the 1980s and spent any time in a video arcade, you no doubt remember the Dragon’s Lair video game. With animation by Disney veteran Don Bluth, players helps Dirk the Daring as he tries to rescue Princess Daphne from the evil dragon Singe. It was a pretty advanced game for its time and mixed humor with adventure.
While the game was still very popular, Ruby-Spears Productions made an animated series for Saturday mornings. The 1984 series roughly follows the format of the game and a storyteller asks viewers how they would solve Dirk’s delimma before each commerical break. After the break, viewers are shown the results of each of the possible choices.
The series didn’t really catch on and Dragon’s Lair lasted just 13 episodes. The show features the voice talents of Bob Sarlatte, Ellen Gerstell, Fred Travalena, Michael Mish, Arthur Burghardt, Peter Cullen.
