This cartoon has the distinction of being one of the few Hasbro-related cartoons not owned by Creator/{{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) and Hasbro seems to be uninterested in buying back the rights. This may partly explain why the cartoon hasn't been acknowledged as much in Hasbro Studios library compared to [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers other]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero cartoons]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends from Hasbro]].

** BigBadEnsemble: It can be argued that Tiamat is also a BigBad, due to trouble she causes for the heroes while chasing Venger.

** And when the kids attempted to kill Venger in "Dragon's Graveyard" it was only described as, "Get rid of him once and for all".

** And when the kids attempted to kill Venger in "Dragon's Graveyard" it was only described as, "Get rid of him once and for all".The episode does present a notable aversion in that the Dungeon Master explicitly mentions the titular "Dragon's Graveyard" in that its the place where dragons go to die.

** According to WordOfGod on the DVD commentary, the series writers viewed it as Dungeon Master was involved in deeper, even more dangerous games the kids had no comprehension of. And he deliberately shielded them from the worst of it by keeping it secret.

* NoSwastikas: One episode featured Venger messing with a time portal to our world, hoping to erase the kids from history by arming a Nazi fighter pilot with a 21st-century jet. [[spoiler:Luckily for the kids, the pilot was a {{Turncoat}} who loathed Hitler's regime (and hit it off with Diana, too).]] More to the point, the tell-tale armband that he tries to ditch lost the swastika it bore in the story-boards and turned into a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balkenkreuz Balkankreuz]]'' (in a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_flag red circle on a white background]], no less! Which [[ImperialJapan Axis power]] did he fly for, again?).

''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 an enchanted item to help them survive in that world and promises to help them find a way home.
