After his castle is taken over; Valiant, Prince of Thule, has a dream in which King Arthur 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 (a peasant) and Rowanne (the blacksmith's daughter), who join him on his quest to become Knights 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 situation that has the two reflecting on what this means for them while this is true is temporary). Though not a Moor, Sir Tristram is one of the earliest friends made by 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, fell in with Valiant, and became the most-developed of all his squires.

While the animation wasn't always the best, I usually enjoyed the storylines. One thing I didn't like was some of the voice casting, especially the female lead role. I don't think it lasted very long because it was pretty tame for the younger set. I'd bet it was watered down by the "700-Club"/Pat Robertson-controlled Family Channel censors.
