Before the Courtney Soloman crap-fest, there was the Dungeons and Dragons Saturday morning cartoon. Admittedly, the show is probably as big a crap-fest as the 2000 movie, but the cartoon is fortified with Nostalgia!

I saw an episode of this on my TV yesterday (got a new hi-def TV, needed to program in all the channels). I can’t find it on their schedule, but I swear I saw it yesterday, as part of ther "Jetix" programming block. I think it was right before an episode of "Power Rangers S.P.D."
