The distant lands of Borovia are threatened by dragons, witches and ogres. It is up to two mighty heroes, Sir Boris and Sir Morris, to ride in and defeat these evil monsters, rescue the Princesses, and restore order to the Kingdom. Unfortunately, these two chivalric brothers happen to be as stupid as they are strong, resulting in numerous mishaps and extraordinary amounts of collateral damage as they attempt to perform good deeds.

* BrickJoke: King Otto [[TemptingFate continuously jokes]] about the unlikelyhood of a meteorite destroying his brand new hydro-electric dam. The camera keeps cutting away to a meteorite approaching planet earth, with ominous music playing. [[spoiler: The meteorite completely misses the dam, but then Sir Morris accidently launches himself into orbit and falls back down into the side of the dam, destroying it.]]

* CurbStompBattle: The Big Knights versus pretty much anything is usually this. Except for the troll at the toll bridge, who beats them (or battle until mutual exhaustion). Though they are very good natured about losing.

* SelfFulfillingProphecy: The Big Knights travel to the past to warn themselves not to visit Professor Von Proton's loboratory. On being told, their past selves immediately go and do just that.

Humour is derived from the setting (Borovia is not actually in TheMiddleAges but in the TheTwentiethCentury and extremely backwards) and from the various disasters caused by the Big Knights. Oh, and it has Creator/{{BRIAN BLESSED}} providing the voice of Sir Morris.

* LargeHam: It has ''BrianBlessed'' in it. The narrator chews plenty of scenery too.

Added DiffLines:

** In the final episode it is heavily implied the knights 'spent the night' with the princess's aunts, which led them to have some peculiar feelings.

* {{Uberwald}}: The Land of the Vampires, [[spoiler:at least until Sir Morris garlic-burps all the vampires to ashes.]]



* WithCatlikeTread: The Big Knights are not exactly stealthy. This becomes especially apparant when they don the hat of invisibility.

* DistaffCounterpart: Aunts Lily and Iris. They're at least somewhat [[WomenAreWiser smarter]] than the Big Knights, but otherwise just like them; just as big, just as strong, just as fearless (they grow {{ManEating Plant}}s in their garden even bigger than the wild ones seen in the episode), and just as boisterous (when one of the princesses apologies for a quiet burp, one of the Aunts practically blows them both away with a belch to demonstrate what a "real burp" is).
