This was DickAndDom's first major CBBC project after ''Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow'', and there are plenty of {{Shout Out}}s to Bungalow games and jokes -- DI Harry Batt turns up as a Sheriff, for example.

[[caption-width-right:160:Our [[ComedicHero heroes]].]]
[[TheBBC [=BBC=] ]]children's fantasy sitcom, three seasons broadcast 2008-11. Stars DickAndDom as bumbling royal brothers who must collect ingredients for a magic potion to cure a plague that has struck their homeland, [[MagicalLand Fyredor]], aided by IneptMage Mannitol and thieving servant [[IncrediblyLamePun Lutin]].

The group wander all over the FantasyWorldMap of Bottom World- sometimes literally, as the LemonyNarrator, [[Creator/MontyPython Terry Jones]], explains that they couldn't afford to film the incredibly exciting action that's going on, so they show a dotted line on a map dashing away from pictures of [[HereThereBeDragons dragons]] instead. Each episode they have to defeat a MonsterOfTheWeek, or meet some wacky countryfolk who hinder them in finding the next revolting or impossible ingredient. In the third season, the plot switches to their attempts to get home before the newly revealed BigBad can stop them.

This was DickAndDom's first major CBBC project after Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow, and there are plenty of {{ShoutOut}}s to Bungalow games and jokes- DI Harry Batt turns up as a Sherriff, for example.

Fairly {{Troperiffic}}- see long list below- although many of the tropes are applicable to antagonists or settings from individual episodes (and are therefore slight spoilers.)

[[TheBBC [=BBC=] ]]children's fantasy sitcom, three seasons broadcast 2008-11. Stars DickAndDom as bumbling royal brothers who must collect ingredients for a magic potion to cure a plague that has struck their homeland, [[MagicalLand Fyredor]], aided by IneptMage Mannitol and thieving servant [[IncrediblyLamePun Lutin]].

The group wander all over the FantasyWorldMap of Bottom World- sometimes literally, as the LemonyNarrator, [[MontyPython Terry Jones]], explains that they couldn't afford to film the incredibly exciting action that's going on, so they show a dotted line on a map dashing away from pictures of [[HereThereBeDragons dragons]] instead. Each episode they have to defeat a MonsterOfTheWeek, or meet some wacky countryfolk who hinder them in finding the next revolting or impossible ingredient. In the third season, the plot switches to their attempts to get home before the newly revealed BigBad can stop them.

This was {{DickAndDom}}'s first major CBBC project after Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow, and there are plenty of {{ShoutOut}}s to Bungalow games and jokes- DI Harry Batt turns up as a Sherriff, for example.
