Editorial Reviews

The 1990s cartoon series THE LEGEND OF PRINCE VALIANT animated Arthurian lore with a fun blend of action drama and fantasy. The series followed the mythic adventures of the eponymous prince (voiced by '70s heartthrob Robby Benson) as he journeyed to Camelot to train as a knight at King Arthur's fabled Round Table. Vibrantly animated and creatively told the series also boasted the vocal talents of Efrem Zimbalist Jr. Samantha Eggar and Tim Curry.

The animated series Prince Valiant The Complete Series Volume One arrived on DVD July 4th. The series was a favorite with kids and teens in the early 90's. The show originally aired between 1991-1993. In the series, the fabled young Prince Valiant is on a quest to find Camelot. He wants to become a Knight of the Round Table. Accompanying him on his mission are Arn and maiden Rowanne. Prince Valiant will eventually have to defend Camelot and many adventures ensue. The shows writing is excellent and it's a very engaging series.

Prince Valiant is an entertaining series that teens and pre-teens will enjoy--especially teens who enjoy reading comic books. The show was based on the comic strip by Hal Foster. This is the first time the critically acclaimed series has arrived on DVD in any type of home media format.

The DVD set is really nice. Included with the set is a full color booklet that includes a complete episode guide. Also included are cool inserts about upcoming animated releases. The set includes 33 episodes of the series.

Special Features Include-

This is a GREAT SHOW with GREAT PLOTS that are interesting and well written for an animated series that was done 15 YEARS ago. The picture quality and sound are pretty good they are not perfect but pretty good. The Menus are nicely done, overall this is a very nice set , you really can't beat it for the PRICE. The show itself is done very well with GREAT PLOTS and ADVENTURES, King Arthur, Merlin, Valiant, Arn and Rowanne are all great characters. Once you start watching you wont be able to stop, this show has you addicted from the very start. I was very pleased with this set, they also put a nice booklet in the set that lists every episode with a brief description and picture of each episode, again nicely done. This set is a must buy and I am looking forward for the 2nd volume to complete this GREAT SERIES!!!!!!!!!!

Many people may remember this excellent cartoon from the early 90's, even though it was buried on a station not known for cartoons at the time. The show follows the adventures of Prince Valiant and his dream of joining the ranks of King Arthur's knights of the round table. The show aired for 2 seasons on the family channel based on the Hal Foster Legend of Prince Valiant newspaper strip. The series has been split into 2 volumes with each having the low suggested retail price of $29.99.

Volume one contains the first 33 episodes of the series, including all of season 1-26 episodes and the first 7 episodes of season 2. Bonus features include interviews with the series creaters and comic strip historians, storyboard of entire episode #32, 2 episode commentaries from the creator/producer/writer, 5 complete episode scripts, and a gallery of paintings and drawings from the show with background music.

I remember getting up early every Saturday morning to watch "The Legend of Prince Valiant," and I'll admit that my decision to order the DVDs was rather clouded by nostalgia. I had misty but positive memories of the show, and naturally what we all remember as being excellent in our childhood will inevitably disappoint when revisited as an adult. However, for the most part "The Legend of Prince Valiant" holds up pretty well as an entertaining show with strong characterization and surprisingly complex storylines.

Borrowed liberally from the Hal Foster comic strip (first started way back in the 1930s), the show is nevertheless true to its central themes of fighting the good fight, the establishment of reason, justice and order over ignorance and oppression, and the growth of its central protagonist from a boy to a man.

After his father's kingdom is defeated by enemy soldiers, Prince Valiant of Thule decides to leave his exiled family in order to seek out the city of Camelot and pursue his goal to become one of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table. Joined on the way by a shy and unassuming huntsman called Arn and a feisty blacksmith's daughter called Rowanne, the three friends search for the golden city and strive toward their common goal of knighthood. On the way, Valiant and his friends often squabble with each other, make mistakes or trust the wrong people, face challenges that they don't always succeed in, and are required to either obey or reject orders depending on circumstances, obligations, and their own sense of right and wrong. Not all the decisions they face are easy ones (or if they are, then following through on those decisions can be difficult).

Cover Art: **** (4 Out Of 5)

The Cover Art Features A Posterised Version Of Valiant On Caliburn. It's Nice, But I Would Have Liked More Of The Cast On It. Rowanne And Arn Should Have Been Added. Merlin And King Arthur Could Have Also Used A Space. The Side View Of The Box Is Really Quality. At The Top There Is A Shield Bearing Thule's Crest, With A Volume 1 Text Over It. When Volume 2 Is Released, They Should Look Snappy Together! The Set Will Look Great On Display In Any Bookshelf, Or DVD Cabinet.

Video Quality: ***** (5 Out Of 5)

The Transfer Is Amazingly Sharp. Colors Are Bright, Filled With Luscious Color, Bringing Out The Detail, And Beauty Of The Animation (Which Surprising Still Holds Up Today, For Being Over 15 Years Old!)

Audio Quality: ***** (5 Out Of 5)

The Audio Is Tremendously Clear. Even If You Don't Have A Home Theater With Surround Sound, You Will Still Feel Every Sound Effect, Music Note, Or Piece Of Dialog. I Found Myself Turning The Sound Down...... It's That Loud!

Bonus Features: *** (3 Out Of 5)

The Special Features Are Rushed, And Not Very Much Information Is Given. A Casual Fan Will Be Satisfied, But Die-Hard Fans Can Expect Disappointment. There Are Three Interviews Included: David Corbett (Creator/Producer) , Brooks Wachtel (Writer), And Rick Norwood (Historian). Rick Norwood Is Dull, And David Corbett Doesn't Say Much. Brooks Wachtel Is The Best, And He Reveals A Few Fun Stories That Went On Behind The Scenes. Much To My Relief, Noelle North (Rowanne) Takes The Place Of Rick On The Episode Commentaries, Joining Brooks And David, Along With Andy.

The Commentaries Are All Over The Place With Subjects, And For The Most Part Not Episode Specific As Listed Originally.
