An excellent diversion...not to mention excellent value. Between the two volumes of the complete series there are 65 episodes, around 1500 minutes of material...abundance of extras as well.
Fans of the weekly newspaper strip will find this a faithful rendition. If you are a fan or all things Arthurian, you'll also enjoy this. I wondered how the varied talent pool they had selected would mesh and was pleasantly surprised. You may recognise the voices of actors from Babylon 5, Beauty and the Beast, He-Man...even has Tim Curry. The story lines are great, presented as continuing arcs...good mix of action, humor, and interesting characters. When the series was playing in the 90's, my viewing was hit and miss...upon viewing the episodes straight through though, it exceeded the memories I had of watching it as a kid.
Impressive boxset design and it's artwork, which includes a booklet and slipcover for the case. Very pleased with this series.
Great Show Now on DVD

"The animated series Prince Valiant The Complete Series Volume One arrived on DVD July 4th. The series was a favorite with kids and teens in the early 90's. The show originally aired between 1991-1993. In the series, the fabled young Prince Valiant is on a quest to find Camelot. He wants to become a Knight of the Round Table. Accompanying him on his mission are Arn and maiden Rowanne. Prince Valiant will eventually have to defend Camelot and many adventures ensue. The shows writing is excellent and it's a very engaging series.
Prince Valiant is an entertaining series that teens and pre-teens will enjoy--especially teens who enjoy reading comic books. The show was based on the comic strip by Hal Foster. This is the first time the critically acclaimed series has arrived on DVD in any type of home media format.
The DVD set is really nice. Included with the set is a full color booklet that includes a complete episode guide. Also included are cool inserts about upcoming animated releases. The set includes 33 episodes of the series.
Special Features Include-
Selected Scripts in PDF Format"

"Many people may remember this excellent cartoon from the early 90's, even though it was buried on a station not known for cartoons at the time. The show follows the adventures of Prince Valiant and his dream of joining the ranks of King Arthur's knights of the round table. The show aired for 2 seasons on the family channel based on the Hal Foster Legend of Prince Valiant newspaper strip. The series has been split into 2 volumes with each having the low suggested retail price of $29.99.
Volume one contains the first 33 episodes of the series, including all of season 1-26 episodes and the first 7 episodes of season 2. Bonus features include interviews with the series creaters and comic strip historians, storyboard of entire episode #32, 2 episode commentaries from the creator/producer/writer, 5 complete episode scripts, and a gallery of paintings and drawings from the show with background music."
Great Show with Great Plots

"This is a GREAT SHOW with GREAT PLOTS that are interesting and well written for an animated series that was done 15 YEARS ago. The picture quality and sound are pretty good they are not perfect but pretty good. The Menus are nicely done, overall this is a very nice set , you really can't beat it for the PRICE. The show itself is done very well with GREAT PLOTS and ADVENTURES, King Arthur, Merlin, Valiant, Arn and Rowanne are all great characters. Once you start watching you wont be able to stop, this show has you addicted from the very start. I was very pleased with this set, they also put a nice booklet in the set that lists every episode with a brief description and picture of each episode, again nicely done. This set is a must buy and I am looking forward for the 2nd volume to complete this GREAT SERIES!!!!!!!!!!"
