Trivia

The show's infrequent use of fantasy elements outside of dreams and its portrayal of Merlin, Morgana, and others like them as alchemists often mistaken for magicians is because at the time of its airing, the Family Channel wanted as few of its shows to involve magic as possible. Interestingly, this resulted in it having much in common with Hal Foster's comic strip on which it was based since in both a witch (not called so in the show) appears in the first story arc and some beasts there and near the Misty Isles, but magic appears less as the story progresses. The one clear exception in the show is the Singing Sword still having its famous power. Excalibur's being drawn from the stone, Morgana's and the witch's concoctions causing a specific dream or nightmare for those exposed to them, and Merlin's possibly being able to see or act through a falcon are left ambiguous as to whether they're actually magic.

Good show, great voice
17 December 2005 | by grayson106See all my reviews

I respectfully disagree with the poster who had issues with the female lead's voice. On the contrary, Noelle North's voice was among the highlights of this series, which this long-time Prince Valiant fan heartily enjoyed from start to (*sigh*) finish. Thanks, Noelle, for making this Legend all that much better.

I do agree that the animation at times wasn't the best -- especially when characters and horses and such were walking. But I suspect that this had more to do with the budget and deadlines than the talent of the animators. More important, isn't it great that people still hold the Arthurian legends near and dear to their hearts? I can't help but think that this was a labor of love for most of those who contributed to The Legend of Prince Valiant.
