Storyline

Children game show series telling the adventures of teams set out for a quest in a "Dungeon and Dragons" settings. The three-level Dungeon is set in an electronic world where the person actually going into the Dungeon would have to wear a helmet and will have his three advisors telling him what to do. Generally the quest was for either the cup, the sword, the shield or the crown and helping them was Treguard, the Dungeon Master and helped by Pickle and Majilda. The team usually come up against Mogdred and in most of the later series Lord Fear. The Dungeon is filled with people and things can either hinder or help the team defeat the "opposition" plans in an attempt to reach their object or the goal of their mission...

Quotes

Treguard, the Dungeon Master: [to a team that's just arrived in Level 3] Well, stand quite still for a moment while I give you what warnings I can. There are Cavernwights in Level 3, as you know, but more recently we've had reports of small bands of goblins. Worse still, sightings of a somewhat larger creature which might even be a hobgoblin. However, the good news is guards are scarce, and most of the hostile ones lie behind you in Level 2. That's enough for now... on with the quest, and keep a sharp lookout for any source ...

Greatest Kid Game Show to never reach US soil
29 August 2016 | by reddragonhero17See all my reviews

I never heard of this show in my childhood until recently, when I stumbled upon Watchmojo's top 10 Kid Game Shows list when I heard of it. I was captivated by what I saw, four kids (one of them the dungeoneer) traversing 3 levels of rooms full of traps, eccentric characters, evil monsters, and imagination. I am into Dungeons and Dragons type board games, so this show won me over big time courtesy of Youtube. I have nearly seen all the episodes that were aired and watching just one episode was enough to make me watch another and then another until I found a winning team (only 8 teams succeeded in the history of the show). The characters will stick with you forever such as Folly the Jester, Mordred the Wizard, Oakley the Tree Troll, Gundrada the warrior woman, Brother Mace, Smirkenorff the Dragon, Sylvester Hands, Ah Wok, and Lord Fear himself. The monsters the dungeoneer encountered were kind of scary a few of them bordering on frightening, such as the Catacombite and the Brollochan, despite dated special effects. Of the 8 seasons of this show, my favorites are seasons 2 and 7 since they have the most amount of winning teams. Now if only BBC America could air this wonderful show....
