Had to make a thread. This is just about perfect.

You know that if a tv series or film was made they would change the look and "update" it somehow, thereby killing it stone dead. One of my favs as a kid, how can an ad get it so right?

I had seen the preview a few days ago, but this is amazing. They got so many things right, even if Venger and DM look a bit artificial.

Wow, that's kind of a niche audience, I'm amazed and pleased that someone was actually able to get this idea greenlit.

Very nice. Is the original available anywhere? Used to love watching it and Galaxy High.

The complete D&D cartoon series? Amazon has it for sure, 20 bucks or so, I can't testify to the quality of the encodings though. The Galaxy High show was put on two discs sold separately and goes for a bit now (not crazy money but still, $30-$40) because it's out of print, but I can attest that the video and audio's pretty good. No frills presentation. Wish I'd known you might have liked it I would have sent them to you, I got rid of them last year. :/

I would kill for a soundtrack of the instrumentals used for the Galaxy High.

There's always the high seas of youtube. In a sensible world it'd be on the CBS All Access service, but that would be like... not making the world a dystopian hellscape..

A writer on this show mentioned in an essay about how these old Saturday morning cartoons weren't allowed to depict violence. Specifically, striking someone with a weapon. (A crippling drawback for the poor kid who ended up with the club.) Yet 10+ years later, the Ninja Turtles would famously be seen decapitating the Shredder in silhouette.

Also a new (unrelated) DnD animation got kickblasted earlier this year. Some of ya'all might be interested.

Really cool ad.

Holy sh!t, I never knew this was a thing. Watched the video and genuinely, my mind is blown. Not because it was shown on a Saturday morning, but just the fact that Leo actually killed Shredder in the cartoon.

Something to look out for. Thanks for the heads up. I watch Pee-Wee's Playhouse on Netflix from time to time on Saturday mornings. One of the few things they have worth a shit.

Oh yeah, if you just want to stream them, TMS' official youtube channel has them all up in one playlist:

Also have fond memories of Pee-Wee's Playhouse.

To clarify, this is Galaxy High, not dungeons and dragons. Thanks for pointing this out, though. It's neat seeing more cartoons available officially on streaming.

This cartoon was popular here in Brazil and turned out to be some kind of historical legacy from brazilian's TV; everyone 30 years old and above grew up watching it, they are targeting this demographic I guess.

I'm now seeing some trivia about it, only the 2 first seasons aired here on repeat nonstop from 1986 until 1994, when they finally showed the 3rd season, lol.

At least you got the 3rd season. It wasn't ever seen in Mexico, with the exception of "Cave of The Fairy Dragons" that was released on VHS.

CAVERNA DO DRAGÃO! :shock:
Here in Portugal we also watched it with the Brazilian dub, it was very cool. Sounds corny as hell now, though. :wink:
I think they only released it in VHS, but I don't remember very well.
