Did You Know?

Trivia:
The show's infrequent use of fantasy elements outside of dreams and its portrayal of Merlin, Morgana, and others like them as alchemists often mistaken for magicians is because at the time of its airing, the Family Channel wanted as few of its shows to involve magic as possible. Interestingly, this resulted in it having much in common with Hal Foster's comic strip on which it was based since in both a witch (not called so in the show) appears in the first story arc and some beasts there and near the Misty Isles, but magic appears less as the story progresses. The one clear exception in the show is the Singing Sword still having its famous power. Excalibur's being drawn from the stone, Morgana's and the witch's concoctions causing a specific dream or nightmare for those exposed to them, and Merlin's possibly being able to see or act through a falcon are left ambiguous as to whether they're actually magic.See more »

An Addition To The Arthurian Legend., 27 September 2015
Author: Dawalk-1 from Hialeah, Florida

I, too, remember this show. That is, at least I remember hearing and knowing of this due to the commercials advertising it actually. But it wasn't among the shows I watched when I was younger and smaller, and I didn't grow up on it. I recall it airing on what was then known as the Family Channel, but I don't recall the exact day(s) nor night(s) it aired, nor that it aired during prime time. Began getting into it after finally deciding to check out very few of the episodes I've seen so far on Youtube this past summer and now I'm hooked. Another one I'd add to my list of past shows that aren't a waste of time and actually are worth watching.

If I had seen this sooner, I'm not quite sure I even would've been appreciative of it at that time. But if I wouldn't have, I am now. It's an animated series set in medieval times that has since been added to my favorites. With the majority of T.V. cartoons airing these days unfortunately being less than impressive than ever before, finding and viewing something great that's new to me is such a breath of fresh air. I didn't know there was a comic on which this is based for the most part either, after reading about it on Wikipedia. However, even though I never read the comic, I still like the T.V. animated series adaptation despite whatever few, minor differences there are from that. What else I like about it is how it's a semi-original spin or twist expanding on the Arthurian legend. Although King Arthur may not be the lead character nor focus but rather makes appearances, there still is a connection made to it.

No, instead of him, this is the story of a young prince named Valiant who goes traveling on a quest to become a knight, along with two companions, Arn and Rowanne, who join him, sharing the same goal and aspiration. But not without having to get passed some obstacles and protecting their kingdoms or realms along the way. As I had overlooked the series myself for one reason or another, the other reviewers here are right about that. It's among the best for a variety of reasons, one of which is being the kind of cartoon that manages to be appealing enough for a middle ground or middle-of-the-road audience/demographic: It's mature enough and isn't too dumbed down for adults, and teens, but it also has plenty of exciting, entertainment values enough for kids to be kept engaged as well. Another reason would be the themes covered here, such as friendship, and lessons. Upon seeing this, one may get the idea, impression, or consideration that this is basically the previously untold story of another knight, as the Arthurian one is the more well-known of the two. I haven't seen the whole series, but I will continue to watch as it's refreshing, especially to me and anyone else who may be new to it also. It's now one of my most beloved shows. I recommend this, because it's amongst the strongest that one will find. It deserves so much more accolades and attention than it got. Everything about it is fine: The writing, the animation, the characters, the voices are all just fine. Some reviewer on here or another site claimed the animation isn't always perfect, I have yet to notice. Nonetheless, the animation might be inconsistent sometimes, but it's still among the better animated programs. One of the greatest ever made, I simply love it.
