I remember seeing this show when Fox Kids started showing D&D on Saturday mornings. Too bad it didn't last much, but I thought it was a good series. Very Scooby-Doo-esque...

This is what you get when you take the entire cast of Scooby Doo, put them in a fantasy setting, and make everything--story, characters, and drama--a WHOLE lot better. Shame...

They are commonly held beliefs that there was a first and a last episode made. In fact neither case is true. Like so many cartoons made in the eighties the premise for the show was explained in the 'talkie' style introduction and so no origin story was needed, allowing the show to easily enter into syndication. In the case of the final episode, series writer Michael Reaves did write the script for one (titled: Requiem), but the show was cancelled before anything was able to be filmed.
