Storyline

Sara, a 12-year-old living on a Montana ranch, was whisked away to the other-dimensional land of Dar-Shan by the talking horse Wildfire. Here Sara found she was really a princess, sent to the mortal world during infancy to protect her from villains. An amulet Sara wore around her neck both protected her from harm and gave her supernatural powers. Wicked sorceress Diabolyn wanted the amulet, and this was where the plotline took off. Assisting Sara in warding off Diabolyn and regaining the throne of Dar-Shan were Wildfire's equestrian companions Dorin, Brutus, and Alvinar. Written by Matt Karpowich <hyperion@gte.net>

The Best of its Time
16 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Wildfire" is perhaps the best of all animated programs produced during the 1980s. It only lasted 13 episodes, but displayed a level of sophistication rarely seen in animation, and especially rare among Saturday Morning toons. This is undoubtedly due to the the influence of the brilliant fantasy-fiction writer Peter S. Beagle (The Last Unicorn). The show centered around the adventures of a young girl living in Monatana named Sara who is in fact a royal refugee from the distant planet Dar-Shan which is ruled by a clan of supernatural horses. Their rule is threatened by the evil witch Diabolyn who seeks (what else?) global domination. The most heroic of Dar-Shan's horses is Wildfire, a wise stallion who was a loyal companion of Sara's mother (the Queen of Dar-Shan and Diabolyn's sister, who died during childbirth). Sara returns periodically to help Dar-Shan when it is in trouble with Wildfire usually being the ultimate weapon of 'Good'.

The dialogue of the show was extremely well-written, making the show not only adventurous and suspenseful, but moral and even existential. It's a shame that no studio has stepped forward to put the show back in circulation or to release it on DVD (it was produced by Hana-Barbera). It is probably the supreme example of a cult cartoon which has survived primarily because its quality was unmatched by any other 80s toon.
