Vids I Dig 006: Toy Galaxy: The History of The ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ Cartoon: Too Violent for Saturday Mornings?

From Toy Galaxy’s YouTube description: The Dungeons and Dragons cartoon hit the airwaves in 1983 riding the Satanic Panic wave from the Dungeons and Dragons Role-playing Game and only lasted a few seasons.

It was also not helped by the fractured marketing approach which had a toyline and other merchandise being released as Advanced Dungeons and Dragons with no action figures made of the characters from the cartoon.

Despite all that, it led in the ratings for it’s first 2 seasons and made a lasting impression on pop culture at large.
