Arn was the name of two characters from Hal Foster's comic strip. The first was the prince of Ord, Valiant's rival for Ilene's love, who gave him the Singing Sword during the pair's attempted rescue of her and who become his friend (and, later, his firstborn's godfather) after they learned that Ilene had died. The second was Valiant's first child and namesake of the first. Arn was also Foster's original choice for the strip's protagonist's name since it would have been a common Norse name at the time of the setting he was writing in, but the members of the strip's publishing syndicate agreed that Valiant sounded better for the hero.

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. >
