Dragon’s Lair: The Complete Series from Warner Archive, Hanna-Barbera

Dragon's Lair: The Complete Series from Warner Archive, Hanna-Barbera

When Dragon’s Lair first appeared in arcades all those years ago, gamers were blown away. Even by today’s standards, the attention to detail in the nearly 30 year old game was astonishing, featuring some of the very best animation from the legendary Don Bluth. Shortly after the video game rose to popularity, Joey Ruby and Ken Spears put together a Dragon’s Lair cartoon series staring Dirk the Daring, Singe the Dragon, Bertram the horse, Timothy the squire, and the seemingly never-ending quest for Dirk’s beloved Princess Daphne across King Ethelred’s kingdom. Now, Warner Bros. and Warner Archive’s Hanna-Barbera Collection have gathered all 13 episodes of the original series in a two-disc DVD compilation called Dragon’s Lair: The Complete Series, available September 20th. Check out a teaser trailer clip!

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #2: Scooby Doo, Where are You!

There have been many versions of Scooby Doo, in TV and Movies, and many versions of Scooby Doo theme songs. Don’t even get us started on the ones that included Scrappy Doo. For years, Scooby Doo has been fighting “The Simpsons” for the Guinness Book World Record for most episodes of a cartoon. Way before the Scooby Doo franchise “jumped the shark” with Scrappy Doo, in 1969, there was “Scooby Doo, Where are you!” Apparently, it was the exclamation point that won over the question mark because it was being yelled by Shaggy. This version of the theme song is the first, and still the best, after all these years.

The images shown are of each character highlighted in the middle, then placed into their spot under the Super Friends Marquee. It then introduces each of the 4 main Superheroes, showing them in action, including the 3 Junior Superheroes, who are really just super sleuths. Narrating this theme with a powerful and effective voice is Ted Knight, who also did narrating duties for the show as well.
