WATCH: Fans create perfect final episode of Dungeons and Dragons animated show

June 22nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

Ok, not gonna lie, this was just pointed out to me tonight, despite having existed since November last year but, hey, last year was a bit hectic, so things got overlooked and missed that normally we’d have been all over, ok?


Youtuber Zetavio Deloryan has finished up the story of one of my all-time favourite animated shows, Dungeons and Dragons!

The 80s series saw a group of kids go on a Dungeons and Dragons rollercoaster that transports them to a mystical realm where they have to fight the forces of evil to save themselves and the world.

However, the show never had a finale, so the kids never got home. Until now.

The new video plays out exactly like an episode of the classic series – it even has original star Katie Leigh starring – and finally gives all the characters the ending they deserved… although it may not be what you think.

Check it out, it’s a gorgeous bit of work and, while it’s been out a while, hopefully this helps others find it just like I did (PS thanks John).

The Final episode of the 1980s Saturday morning cartoon Dungeons and Dragons. From a script written by series writer Michael Reaves. Fully animated by using original footage from the series. Dialog from the DVD radio show released in 2006 by BCI eclipse. With original cast member Katie Leigh graciously reprising her role of Shelia. Music reconstructed from the original series (with varying degrees of success) The creators of this episode are fans first, amateur animators second.

There are many things I wish could have done differently in this presentation, but I am very proud of what we have accomplished and it is my hope that those who love this cartoon as much as we do will be pleased with what we have put together.

Original cast voices appear in the episode, as well as a role reprisal from Katie Leigh to which she gave her legal assent.

Professional Disclaimer:

We have attempted to follow Michael Reaves’ amazing script to the closest letter, except places that were beyond our abilities to create. His script ends at 28 minutes on an “open ending” that he was instructed to write by the producers, should the series continue to a 4th season. The extra events that occur after that are strictly my ideas (discussed with my co-creator Marshall Hubbard) on how to close out the series. With concepts and events stemming from previous stories, and in an attempt to bring a definitive closure to the story of the search for a way home.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
