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>

My favorite 80s cartoon
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Largely forgotten today, this fantasy cartoon about a princess in hiding and a talking horse was remarkably complex, beautifully drawn, and amazingly well-written. Each episode revealed more and more of the mythical world of Dar-Shan and gave its audience a new puzzle piece to help reason out the past events that led up to the evil Diabolyn's tyrannical rule.

The only "flaw" this series has is the fact that it ran for a mere 13 episodes. The final episode reveals just enough surprises to make me long for more; thus, it sadly leaves the story quite unfinished.

Everyone I knew that watched the cartoon enjoyed it; I'm not sure why it was not continued. I very much hope that it will come to DVD and, furthermore, that its release will generate interest from talented writers and animators who might wish to continue the story in a new animated series.
