Years earlier in the Kingdom of LovelyLocks, the evil Grand Duchess RavenHair destroyed herself and the royal family in an ill fated attempt to take over. Now, a farmer's adopted daughter awakens to find rainbow streaks in her blonde hair, causing the land to realize that she is the missing princess known as Lady LovelyLocks. Taking her rightful place on the throne with the help of her two best friends, Maiden FairHair and Maiden CurlyCrown, Lady LovelyLocks discovers magical creatures known as Pixietails who wish to help the princess restore the kingdom. However, RavenHair's vain daughter, RavenWaves, has also grown up with her eye on the throne. It is her belief that cutting the royal colors in Lady LovelyLocks's hair will give her the power to control the land as well as the PixieTails. Although the princess is weary of RavenWaves, she is aided by the wisdom of the old wizard ShiningGlory and helped by the many creatures living in the kingdom. Also on her side is a mutt called ...

Wow, not many reviews on this (that is sad). I think this was a great show but somehow was overshadowed in its time by other shows that were airing at the time.
I own all 5 VHS takes of the show that was released in the US and the story flows like it is to be expected -- Jealous Ravenhair tries to take over the kingdom and thinks a lock of Lady's hair is the key to her success. Lady wins, of course, and finds herself being saved, at times, by her Prince in shinning armor (okay, so it's really FUR he saves her in, but he does get to save her as a human, even if its just once).
I remember LOVING this show when I was little and ended up renting it to death in our movie store (where I ended up buying 2 of the tapes when it went out of business). The others 3 I collected off Amazon and eBay.
The only downer in the series is that, in English, and thus the animation, is incomplete; ending at an unfulfilled desire on all parties. The story DID end, though, in Swedish(?) audio dramas, by where you can read transcripts of such.
I somewhat miss the moral-ridden cartoons they had in the 80's and early 90's. This show stands to not be compared with current cartoons that have dumb idiocy for plots and hold no direction for where it is going. Very few cartoons stand to live up to story-telling now days; even if Lady LovelyLocks stood to be one of those before-the-time toy-line advertisements like children now-adays actually notice.
I do wish I could own official DVDs of the show, even if it WAS unfinished. Yet, I highly doubt that such a thing would ever happen.
