Hi, just registered to get help with this cartoon from my childhood.

It was based either in the 80s, or early 90s. Most likely the 80s.

I can't remember scenes from it entirely, as I was a really young kid back then.

All I remember is that it was set is a possible medieval setting, with a castle of sorts on a hill with a valley to its sides. There must have been a princess too.

The one classic scene that I do remember is that, there was this wizard-scientist that made this huge coffee/tea machine, into which he poured something, and after a whole set of gearwork, out comes a couple of drops of coffee/tea into his cup at the end.

I can't even remember any of the other scenes, but what I do remember is, that the artwork was pretty similar in concept to The Secret of the Selenites (Baron Munchausen).

Please help! Smile

Thank you in advance!

'80s medieval cartoon?
A couple of possibilities come to mind:

Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears

The Biskitts

Dragon's Lair

Dungeons & Dragons

Galtar and the Golden Lance

Thundarr the Barbarian

Thank you for your reply. However, it is none of those. From what I remember, it was not too serious a cartoon, and had a very whimsical song similar to Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel.

The whimsical tune must serve as a clue.

Doesn't ring any bells for me. I'm sure I'd remember a scene like that Rube Goldberg tea machine described in the first post.

I assume this was in English? What country did you see the cartoon in? It's possible it's older than you think since many cartoons often stay in syndication for years after they're first aired.

It was aired in Singapore, or on VHS, can't really remember, around early 90s. It looked pretty old to me, but I was first introduced to the famous tune of Greensleeves with this cartoon.

Once again,

Rube goldberg tea machine
Greensleeves
Castle on a hill
Wizard-scientist
Blonde princess, possibly dressed in light pink

It has to be from the 80s, cos then it'd be too old for me to have watched it from here.

Thank you for your reply, I've now learnt what a Rube Goldberg machine is! Smile

Maybe the British cartoon Dr. Snuggles?

Sorry, but no, it is not Dr Snuggles either. Sad Thank you for all the help. Been trying to track it down on IMDB.com.

Any help will be appreciated! Smile

This description made me think of one of my favorite '80s cartoons as a child- maybe it's The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin?

Well, it's not teddy ruxpin. Smile It features humans in cartoon form, and no animals. Maybe dragons, but that's about it. The wizard was very merlin-ish. It's not a serious cartoon like that of He-man.

Anyway, I was watching Indiana Jone and the Last Crusade this evening, and the medieval crusade theme that was played also resembled the memories I have of this cartoon. Hope this helps.

I still cannot recall any other significant scenes from this cartoon, so, I'm afraid it's a mere shot in the dark until we hit bingo.

Thank you to all those who have helped and are continuing to help too! Smile Much appreciated.
