Based loosely on the famous Role-Playing-Game of the same name, this classic cartoon ran for 2½ seasons in the mid 80’s, with 27 episodes. Six kids, whilst on a theme park roller-coaster named Dungeons & Dragons, went through a portal and got teleported to another dimension, to a magical and mysterious place known as the Realm. The kids were befriended by a dwarfish being known as DungeonMaster, who gave each kid a unique magical item.
It was never made clear exactly why the group were taken to the Realm, or what their purpose was. Their never-ending quest was to return home to Earth, and in many episodes they actually had the opportunity to do so, but decided not to for various reasons, usually to help out a ‘friend’ or something equally worthy.
Along the way they had many adventures, helping strangers and fighting the ‘baddies’, although each episode was totally unrelated to the others – there was no continuity throughout the series.
The show ran for two whole seasons but then got cancelled in the middle of the third. So they never actually made it home! A final episode, which concluded everything, was written, but never made.
