Editorial Reviews

The legendary videogame Dragon's Lair was a blockbuster (and quarter guzzling) sensation when it first debuted, spawning sequels, imitators, and a beloved Saturday morning cartoon series. Developed by the powerhouse animation crew put together by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the Dragon's Lair cartoon made many contributions to the Dragon's Lair saga, from naming the Dragon "Singe" to rounding out the cast with such memorable supporting players as Bertram the horse (voiced by animation legend Peter Cullen) and Timothy the squire (voiced by Michael Mish). Mimicking the action of a videogame, Dragon's Lair pauses the action and asks the audience which action Dirk should take next in his never-ending quest to protect the kingdom of King Ethelred and his beloved Princess Daphne. But enough talk! Dirk the Daring faces doom throughout this 13 episode, 2-disc set and he needs YOU to help him decide what to do next!

Format: DVD
In the early `80s, when arcades were the place to spend your allowance money and the Atari 2600 was the Xbox 360 of is day, Saturday morning TV sought to capitalize on the success of the first video game era. Even though that first wave ended up being more of a fad than a phenomenon (the crash in the mid `80s nearly killed the market altogether until Nintendo resurrected it in 1987 and never looked back), that didn't stop networks like CBS and ABC from launching cartoons based on "Pac-Man," "Donkey Kong," "Q*Bert," "Pole Position" and "Dragon's Lair."

The latter made the most sense of all the games to adapt into a cartoon, since "Dragon's Lair" was no ordinary video game: it was one of several laser-disc games, fully animated by Don Bluth and an absolute pain in the behind to play (most of us kids would insert 50 cents and last about 5 seconds in a game that was all about memorizing moves as opposed to hand/eye coordination). Still, it looked cool with Dirk the Daring out to save Princess Daphne from the Dragon "Singe" in a colorful medieval castle - elements which animators Ruby-Spears wisely opted to retain in their brief Saturday morning adaptation, which the Warner Archive has brought to DVD this month.

The two-disc set includes all 13 episodes of the short-lived series in acceptable full-screen transfers with mono audio. John Debney scored the series, doing a nice job infusing the limited animation pallet with majestic orchestral tones.

I have always been a fan of classic cartoons, and I loved the video game, too. This is a good cartoon to accompany the series. The only problems I have is the fact that Dirk didn't have a squire, and Singe, the dragon, did not talk. I imagine they added these things to make the show more interesting. But, overall, it follows the general tone of the game, even asking viewers what Dirk should do in certain situations, and then showing the outcome of each decision. The video quality is outstanding. Either the show wasn't played very much, or Warner Bros. took great care to restore it. Either way, the picture looks fantastic. No complaints there. Even though the animation wasn't done by Don Bluth, it's still worth checking out if you're a fan of Dragon's Lair, or of classic cartoons in general.

Simple story lines and characters. It does not have to be computer animated to be enjoyable. This era of cartoons were great for watching on Saturday mornings, and now I have them for when I am working in my office (or on Saturday mornings) This has good little adventure stories and is the series you remember from the 80's I think it was.

It was great to watch and share the cartoons I was watching as a child with my nieces and nephews.
Dragons Lair is a fun and wholesome show for everyone. I was pleased with all thirteen episodes.The only thing you have to get used to is the mono audio other then that awesome!
