It's an entertaining show, but if you're looking for deep storylines, you might not find it here, though you will find plenty of action in each episode, whether on horseback or on foot, there's plenty of sword clashing throughout the entire series. The armored Knight costumes are well designed, with plenty of variety whether on the side of good fighting for Camelot, or evil, fighting for Morgana. Merlin is the guide, and he uses his magic to help them find the lost keys, to help them get back to their world (Think Dungeons and Dragons). There's also dragons, animals and monsters that make appearances.
Overall, great show on DVD thanks to IMAGE, just needed a bit more plot to earn a 5. Three DVD's each with about 8 episodes each, for about 27 total, each about 24 minutes or so. Recommended. Series was made 1993, but definitely has an 80's feel to it (a good thing).
Children shows of today lack the display of character. Most are just about having fun and a lot of selfishness before a quickly forgotten, subtle lesson. Less about getting into a lot of trouble and saying sorry, More about overcoming the obstacles in the way of doing something good, Especially when it's you. This show follows a football team having fun via the adventure that life, and time travel, brings in just trying to do what's right. Even with the magic aspect that's a little beyond reality the show provides the role model of an eager-to-always-improve hero. Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Thundercats, Ducktales. If my sons going to look up to a fictional character, I rather it be King Arthur than a sponge.
There is a wide array of things to attribute to who I am today, and the values in characters I looked up to in entertainment as a child definitely played a role. With that said, I'm glad that I can comfortably let my son watch a show knowing that it shares the same character building values I try to teach him myself.
Most of you have never heard of this series, and that's a great pity. There are a few reasons why it's so obscure. First, the market for Saturday morning cartoons in the late 1980's and early 90's was over-saturated with material, and the hidden gems (like this one) were simply lost in the shuffle. Second, Cable TV wasn't as well distributed in 1992 as it is now. Most networks were still local, and, if they picked a show up at all, they would usually show only one or two episodes to see how well the public reacted, then pull the plug.
This series deservedly belongs in any animation lover's (Western or otherwise) library. The animation is crisp and well-made, the voice acting and music is top-notch ( particularly the kick-@$$ intro theme), and the writing is believable. Also included on the DVD is the rarely seen second season, which never aired in the US. Now, mount up, knights! There's a day to save!
