Developed by the powerhouse animation crew put together by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the Dragon's Lair cartoon made many contributions to the Dragon's Lair video game saga, from naming the Dragon "Singe" to rounding out the cast with such memorable supporting players as Bertram the horse (voiced by Peter Cullen), Timothy the squire (voiced by Michael Mish) and Sir Hubert Blunt the knight.
