Dungeons & Dragons (1983 - 1985)
September 17, 1983 - December 7, 1985
The general premise of the show is that a group of children are pulled into the "Realm of Dungeons & Dragons" by taking a magical dark ride trip on a fairground roller coaster. Invariably, the children wish most to return home, but often take detours to help people, or find that their fates are intertwined with the fate of others.
After arriving in the Realm, the children are a little out of place, but the Dungeon Master, named for the role of the referee in the role-playing game, appears assuming the role of their mentor, and gives them each clothing and magical paraphernalia to suit their abilities
