Galtar and the Golden Lance is an animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and premiered in 1985 and aired as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. The show began airing in syndication on September 2, 1985, and lasted 21 episodes.
The series is about the mythical sword-and-sorcery adventures of three companions: Galtar, Princess Goleeta, and her younger mind controlling brother, Zorn. Galtar, with the help of his Golden Lance, is fighting with Tormack, the tyrannical usurper of the kingdom of Bandisar, who is conquering their entire world. Tormack is responsible for the death of both Galtar's parents and 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, in order to combine it with the stolen ancient and indestructible Sacred Shield, which rightfully belongs to Goleeta and Zorn. For whoever holds both cannot be brought down in any form of combat. The Golden Lance itself normally exists as a rather ordinary-looking short staff. However, when Galtar holds it above his head with both hands, it extends two mystical blades from itself, one on each side, and can then be divided into two swords for dueling. The enchantment that gives the Golden Lance its power also causes any unworthy wielder to bring about an uncontrolled discharge of magical energy from its "hilt," which is called "The Fury Of The Golden Lance." (This is actually shown in at least one of the episodes.)
Also aiding Galtar and his friends are his loyal horse, Thork, and the powerful red dragon known as Raven's Claw. Further hindrances (plus comic relief) to this trio comes from inept father and son mercenaries Rak and Tuk, who have a history of double crossing others at every turn, claiming that it is the only work they know. The series was canceled before the final outcome of the conflict between Galtar and Tormack could be revealed.
Galtar and the Golden Lance aired 21 episodes.
