I remember this series! I tried to look it up in "The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows" by Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh. It's not there!
Not only do I recall the theme music (based on a Wagner tune, I believe), but I even remember the plot of one episode. Our Viking heroes are visiting a medieval city and its citizens are rapidly succumbing to the plague, except in the Jewish quarter, which is somehow avoiding the disease. The townspeople are furious: the Jews must be in league with Satan. Upon investigating, our Viking friends discover that the Jews have a special potion which apparently cures them. The Vikings must convince the gentiles to take their medicine, which the Jews are more than willing to share. The miracle drug, it is revealed, is compounded from the green mold of stale bread and cheese. Of course, we in modern times know that the mold is called penicillium. Cool, huh?
