What do you remember about the show?

Do you remember what time period or where you saw it?

What sort of style was the animation?

Thanks for the reply. I watched it somewhere during the early 90s so I'm guessing it was an 80s or early 90s show. The style reminded me of Captain Planet more than anything but I don't think it fits the show thematically. Sorry, I know it's not much.

I had a hunch it might have been 'Real Ghostbusters' earlier but I checked all the episodes. Maybe it is because there was an 'Indian' looking kid that makes me think of Captain Planet.

It could be the City at the Edge of Midnight episode of the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.

Wow, thanks. This could indeed be it. I don't exactly know why I had Indian children and slave labor in mind, must've mixed in some 'Temple of Doom'.

The kids were forced to do slave labor of a sort to keep the clock from ticking to midnight.

Also, the character of Ramoud wore a turban. That might have helped you form the image of "Indian" children.

Thank you, I think we have it then. I hadn't even been aware I had ever watched the show.
