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.

An excellent cartoon for people of all ages. The Legend of Prince Valiant follows the adventures of an exiled prince and two of his friends as they strive to become knights of the round table. The animation is simply wonderful. Very different from what you would find on a typical Saturday morning. The story lines were good enough that an adult would not be bored and even contained a moral for children and helps them to develop an appreciation for Arthurian legends. The voices of the animated characters were well done and included some notable guest appearances. The episodes often built upon one another and the characters seemed to grow and change as they matured. Possibly the most underrated cartoon of all times!
