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 discovered this cartoon when my son was three years old and he remembers it to this day. It came on t.v. on Monday nights and it entertained us adults too. The voices were more human like than cartoon style so it didn't have the hyper quality like typical cartoons of the day.
One of the most fascinating and unique qualities, however, was the level of music that you found only in movies in the 1990's. That gave this cartoon a sophistication no other had.
No t.v. cartoon gained that movie quality music until the sophisticated and beautiful colored Batman series began years later.
