Added DiffLines:


A CGI movie based on the series was released in 2018.

Added DiffLines:

* SkintoneSclerae: Played straight with Terry and Princess Dawn but averted with Bip, Grump, his dragon and most other characters.


* [[WalkingTheEarth Walking Princess Dawn's Kingdom]]: Rather like a low-key version of TheDarkCrystal, the series revolves around this.

* [[WalkingTheEarth WalkingTheEarth: Walking Princess Dawn's Kingdom]]: Kingdom: Rather like a low-key version of TheDarkCrystal, ''Film/TheDarkCrystal'', the series revolves around this.


* NoEnding: Sadly, our heroes never do reach the Cave of the Whispering Orchids, or recover the Crystal Key.[[note]]There was a rumor that a finale had been storyboarded; the Whispering Orchids informed Dawn that the Grump was a projection of her own worst side; once she acknowledged this, the Crystal Key performed a FusionDance, re-uniting Dawn and the Grump as one and freeing her kingdom. She offers Terry a permanent place in her kingdom, but he professes homesickness and asks to be sent home instead. Since she now had the Grump's magic ability, she granted his wish, and Dawn, Bip, and poor beleaguered Dragon lived HappilyEverAfter![[/note]]
