I used to watch this and I still DON'T know why!
The best character was the paladin/knight kid who was supposed to be the a**hole of the group, he showed more common sense than all of the others. Once he wrote down
"Dungeon Master's" stupid riddle and another time told the little Yoda wanna-be to QUIT SCREWING AROUND AND GIVE THEM SOME STRAIGHT TALK!
My favorite scene was when they made it back to the "real" world and Venger followed them; Sir What's-His-Name ran to a phone and announced he was going to call in a SWAT team! Venger would have crapped his pants once the AR15s opened up.
It would be interesting to give the old cartoon a game-based twist by people who would have taken it seriously.
