Growing up I had always been a fan of fantasy and science fiction, but my first introduction to what would be come one of the most powerful influences in my life, role playing games, was the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon from the mid-1980’s (1983-1985). This cartoon is what inspired me to look for someone to teach me this amazing game which led to a life of great friendships and memories as well as a powerful hobby that I still do to this day.
First Episode of the D&D Cartoon
The series is definitely a bit cheesy by today’s standards of animation and writing, but in its day… wow! Below you can watch the first episode which I found on YouTube:
It seems you can also watch full series of the Dungeons and Dragons Cartoon on YouTube too! Yea!
