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.

An excellent cartoon for people of all ages. The Legend of Prince Valiant follows the adventures of an exiled prince and two of his friends as they strive to become knights of the round table. The animation is simply wonderful. Very different from what you would find on a typical Saturday morning. The story lines were good enough that an adult would not be bored and even contained a moral for children and helps them to develop an appreciation for Arthurian legends. The voices of the animated characters were well done and included some notable guest appearances. The episodes often built upon one another and the characters seemed to grow and change as they matured. Possibly the most underrated cartoon of all times!
