* ExactWords: Presto's hat tends to use the laziest interpretation possible. For instance, when he wished for an enemy to be removed from his sight, a bucket was magically conjured to drop onto his head (making it impossible to see the enemy).

'''''Dungeons & Dragons''''' (often referred to by fans as the "D&DC"[[note]]C is for cartoon[[/note]] in order to distinguish it from the game) was an animated television series based on [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons the role-playing game]]. The show was produced by [[Creator/DepatieFrelengEnterprises Marvel Productions]] and broadcast from 1983 to 1985. The premise had six friends (Hank, Diana, Eric, Presto, Sheila and Bobby) take a ride in an amusement park and suddenly find themselves in a HeroicFantasy setting simply called The Realm. They are instantly garbed in clothes fitting their character classes and quickly gain a companion in [[TeamPet a unicorn foal named Uni]]. A MysteriousBenefactor, known only as Dungeon Master, gives each of them a magic weapon to help them survive in that world and promises to help them find a way home.

Together, the kids look for a way home, but the malevolent villain, Venger, is determined to hunt them down for their weapons as a means of gaining supreme power. Dungeon Master mysteriously appears at seemingly random times, restricting his help to quest assignments and giving advice in the form of cryptic riddles that frustrate the kids to no end.

* RunOrDie: The gang spends ''almost'' as much time running away as that ''other'' [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo gang of meddling kids,]] and with much better reason.

* AscendedExtra: The entire series and all the characters, as [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/dnd%20animated%20show.jpg a special D&D handbook]] came with the boxed DVD set that gives 3rd edition stats to the children, Venger and all of the weapons and equipment, along with other show-only aspects, effectively making the cartoon an official part of the D&D game.

The kids are, however, far more powerful in the book than they appear to be in the series.



* PintSizedPowerhouse: Bobby, although it's likely his strength comes from his club.

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Bobby, although it's likely his strength comes from his club. (The tie-in D&D book ''The Animated Series Handbook'' implies it's a bit of both - he's unusually strong to begin with, but the club enhances it further to superhuman levels)

* AdultFear: Oh boooooy. We have Hank [[spoiler: being forced to betray his friends to keep a kidnapped Bobby alive]], the Nightwalker kidnapping children from Earth via portals, Varla's parents being unable to keep their BarrierMaiden daughter safe from Venger...
** It gets even worse in "City on the Edge of Midnight". The episode opens in our world, with a young boy screaming for help as he is dragged off by an unseen force, only for his father to come rushing in just in time to see his son sucked under the bad. Dad flips the bed over, and there's nothing but bare floor underneat, and we see the cops pull up outside. Drifts into FridgeHorror when you imagine Dad trying to explain what happened to his son to the police.

This cartoon has the distinction of being one of the few Creator/{{Hasbro}}-related cartoons not owned by Hasbro. Instead, the cartoon is the property of Creator/{{Disney}}, who acquired the cartoon along with the majority of Marvel Productions' cartoons. This could be because Hasbro had no ownership of ''Dungeons and Dragons'' at the time of production (they were still with TSR, Inc. prior to that company's sale to Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast, a Hasbro subsidiary). This may partly explain why the cartoon hasn't been acknowledged as much in Hasbro Studios history compared to [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers other]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero cartoons]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends from Hasbro]].
