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.

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!
