The 80’s brought a series of abominations to mankind including Hammerpants, a fascination with creeper mustaches, and a penchant for excessively large perms. Another side effect of the era was an abnormally large number of poorly animated cartoons that glorified all the absurdity of a time in which it was hip to be square. One of the best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) was that of the Dungeons and Dragons animated series.
Loosely based on the popular RPG, the show follows six young adventurers as they get transported to the D&D realm and fight their way through a world of peril and, you guessed it, dragons. D&D players will recognize the basic outline for the characters and their respective abilities: dungeon master, cavalier, barbarian, ranger, thief, acrobat… and a random baby unicorn. If you watched this show as a kid, you probably loved it for all its ridiculous overacting, fantasy fun and epic 80’s soundtrack. Now, it’s time to pass the torch. Pop in these DVD’s, set your kid down in front of the familial TV with a bowl of Lucky Charms on one fine Saturday morning, and allow them to soak up the awesomeness of one of the best-worst shows ever made. Once they have finished partaking in the glory of the D&D animated series you can rest easy that yet another generation of nerds will have grown up with the knowledge of just how epic a cartoon can be.
