After his castle is taken over, Valiant, Prince of Thule, has a dream, in which King Arthur calls him to Camelot. Valiant heeds the advice of the dream, and sets out on a quest to find the famed kingdom. Along the way, he meets two new friends, Arn (a peasant) and Rowanne (the blacksmith's daughter), who join him on his quest to become a Knight of The Round Table. After arriving in Camelot, the plot focuses on the three friends' lives, as they strive to become knights.Written by
Rowanne, Sir Bryant, and Denys are all completely original characters, but each could be interpreted as having at least a few similarities to ones in Hal Foster's comic strip. In the comic, Valiant and Arn both love Ilene, while in this show they are both shown to have feelings for Rowanne (albeit the two reflecting on this is temporary). Though not a Moor, Sir Tristram is one of the earliest knights to befriend Valiant and often seen with him and Sir Gawain, very much like Bryant. Although not related to anyone noteworthy as Denys was, Geoffrey also found himself free from a cruel home situation and became the most developed of Valiant's squires. See more »
I, too, remember this show. That is, at least I remember hearing and knowing of this due to the commercials advertising it actually. But it wasn't among the shows I watched when I was younger and smaller, and I didn't grow up on it. I recall it airing on what was then known as the Family Channel, but I don't recall the exact day(s) nor night(s) it aired, nor that it aired during prime time. Began getting into it after finally deciding to check out very few of the episodes I've seen so far on Youtube this past summer and now I'm hooked. Another one I'd add to my list of past shows that aren't a waste of time and actually are worth watching.
If I had seen this sooner, I'm not quite sure I even would've been appreciative of it at that time. But if I wouldn't have, I am now. It's an animated series set in medieval times that has since been added to my favorites. With the majority of T.V. cartoons airing these days unfortunately being less than impressive than ever before, finding and viewing something great that's new to me is such a breath of fresh air. I didn't know there was a comic on which this is based for the most part either, after reading about it on Wikipedia. However, even though I never read the comic, I still like the T.V. animated series adaptation despite whatever few, minor differences there are from that. What else I like about it is how it's a semi-original spin or twist expanding on the Arthurian legend. Although King Arthur may not be the lead character nor focus but rather makes appearances, there still is a connection made to it.
No, instead of him, this is the story of a young prince named Valiant who goes traveling on a quest to become a knight, along with two companions, Arn and Rowanne, who join him, sharing the same goal and aspiration. But not without having to get passed some obstacles and protecting their kingdoms or realms along the way. As I had overlooked the series myself for one reason or another, the other reviewers here are right about that. It's among the best for a variety of reasons, one of which is being the kind of cartoon that manages to be appealing enough for a middle ground or middle-of-the-road audience/demographic: It's mature enough and isn't too dumbed down for adults, and teens, but it also has plenty of exciting, entertainment values enough for kids to be kept engaged as well. Another reason would be the themes covered here, such as friendship, and lessons. Upon seeing this, one may get the idea, impression, or consideration that this is basically the previously untold story of another knight, as the Arthurian one is the more well-known of the two. I haven't seen the whole series, but I will continue to watch as it's refreshing, especially to me and anyone else who may be new to it also. It's now one of my most beloved shows. I recommend this, because it's amongst the strongest that one will find. It deserves so much more accolades and attention than it got. Everything about it is fine: The writing, the animation, the characters, the voices are all just fine. Some reviewer on here or another site claimed the animation isn't always perfect, I have yet to notice. Nonetheless, the animation might be inconsistent sometimes, but it's still among the better animated programs. One of the greatest ever made, I simply love it.
