Dungeons and Dragons

 

Based on the homonymous RPG, this animated show of the 80’s is still recorded by sighing fans, despite the fact it has remained unfinished (or maybe because of this, too).

On a sunny day, six youngsters are having fun in an amusement park until they decide to try a new toy, a mix of roller-coaster with ghost train called Dungeons and Dragons. Suddenly, the coaster vanishes away and Hank, Eric, Sheila, Diana, Presto and Bobby are transported to a world known as the Realm, where they bump down dressed as figures from RPG (mage, warrior, etc).

A few seconds later, one small unicorn runs into them with a hungry dragon (Tiamat) on her heels. The kids join her in the run, but they end up cornered in a cliff. When everything seems lost, the mysterious Dungeonmaster, who’s been watching the whole scene, gives them magic weapons, according to their RPG types. Thanks to him, the kids escape from the dragon, just to run into the evil wizard Venger. He sends them a blast that is barred by Eric’s shield and flies away. Then, the Dungeomaster presents himself to the kids as their guide in that world.

During the series, the kids walk through the less-than-hospitable lands of the Realm after a way back home, guided only by the Dungeonmaster’s puzzles. They never succeed om it, however. Usually Venger, who wants their weapons at any cost, destroys their hardly won ticket back home; when that doesn’t happen, the kids themselves are forced to sacrifice their new chance, in order to help the friends they made in the Realm. They never give up, however, and bravely proceed in their search without realizing that each misadventure they go through make them more mature and wiser (well, a little).
