Galtar and the Golden Lance Cartoon Intro

Galtar and the Golden Lance is an animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera.

History

The series is about the mythical adventures of three companions: Galtar, Princess Goleeta and her younger mind-commanding brother, Zorn. Galtar, with the help of his Golden Lance, is fighting against the evil Tormack, the tyrannical usurper of the kingdom of Bandisar, who is conquering their entire world. Tormack is responsible for the deaths of both of Galtar's parents and for assassinating the rest of Goleeta and Zorn's family.

Tormack, among others like him, covets the power of Galtar's supernatural weapon, the Golden Lance, to combine it with the stolen ancient and indestructible Sacred Shield, which rightfully belongs to Goleeta and Zorn. Whoever holds both cannot be brought down in any form of combat. Also aiding Galtar and his friends is the powerful red dragon known as Raven's Claw. Further hindrances (and comic relief) to this trio come from inept father and son mercenaries Rak and Tuk. They have a history of double-crossing others at every turn, claiming that it is the only work they know.

When the show was canceled, it was with the conflict between Galtar and Tormack left ongoing and thus unresolved.
