Little Wizards (partially found episodes and original English dub of animated series; 1987-1988)
Little Wizards is an American animated television series produced by Marvel Productions and aired on ABC from September 26, 1987 to 1988 for a total of 13 episodes. It was created by Len Janson and Chuck Menville.
The show follows the adventures of Prince Dexter whose throne was usurped after the death of his father, the king, by an evil sorcerer named Renwick. Fearing for his life, Dexter escaped into the forest where he meets a kindly wizard named Phineus and a dragon named Lulu who lived in a large tree.
With their aid, Dexter sought out the legendary Singing Sword with hopes that one day he could reclaim his rightful kingdom. Also helping Dexter were three little magical monsters - the result of a magic potion faux paux. The creatures included Winkie, a pink flying girl monster, Gump, a fat orange shape-shifter and Boo, a cowardly creature with the power of invisibility (except for his eyes).
While several clips of the show in other languages have shown up, only the English intro of the show can currently be found, as the show has no known home media release.
The show has been very obscure. For example, in France, the series was localized as Cedric et Chloé, but no official written records subsisted of its existence, even on the Internet, where mentions of its existence relied entirely upon fan memories on nostalgia forums.
