Twelve-year-old Bastian Balthazar Bux had lost the wonderful imagination he had as a child somewhere between growing older, watching TV, going to school and playing with his Gameboy. But when his mother dies suddenly, Bastian's limitless imagination is reborn. Bastian comes across a magical book, "The Neverending Story", in a curious little bookstore. Inspired by the book, Bastian creates an enchanted world called Fantasia, inhabited by dragons, dark knights and assorted heroes and villains. The adventure of a lifetime begins when Bastian projects his Fantasian alter ego, Atreyu, into a battle against the sinister force of The Nothing. This terrible force threatens to destroy Fantasia and its ruler, the Childlike Empress. Only Atreyu, a 14-year-old Woodland boy and unlikely hero, can save her and find a cure for The Nothing.

[there's a rumble]
Did you hear that?
Don't try to change the subject. But, you know, what happened...
Oh, yeah, you kissed me.

No. People kiss each other all the time.
Well, not where I come from. Some people would take a kiss like that very seriously.
What was that sound?
Now who's changing the subject?

In episode # 1.8 "The Luck Stops Here," the credit for 'Audrey Gardiner' says "Moochild." See more »
It's not exactly like the movie but it's a pleasant t.v series for kids.
The nothing is never really explained and i must say i much prefer the movie version where it just sucks everything up. I was a little disturbed by the death of the mother. It was a little much, but after episode one it picks up. Love the little boy with the buck teeth in the tribe. A flying machine replacing the luck dragon is clever.
Though the ease in which everyone learns to fly it is far fetched.
In all, i prefer the original movie (hated the sequel) but who wouldn't.
