The Legend of Sarmoti: Siegfried and Roy (1996)

listen friend this show is so obscure that it's hard to find a decent image still of it and im too lazy to make one myself ok please forgive me
Eh…close enough.

Did you know that in 1996 DiC released a fantasy miniseries based around Vegas magicians Siegfried and Roy? We didn’t either.  I’m not sure anybody does. So let’s fix that, because, as it turns out, this is a surprisingly good bit of fantasy hoohah in cartoon form! Originally, Marvel licensed out the names to make a S&R cartoon, but the rights fell through before anything actually came out from that, thus leading Dic to snap it up. While we don’t know exactly why this was, we’re relatively happy they did as it led to this rather wonderful and well written 4-parter. It should be noted that “The Legend of Sarmoti: Siegfried and Roy” is actually somewhat of an alternate title – in the cartoon itself, it calls itself “Siegfried and Roy: Masters of the Impossible”. But, looking into it, it seems the internet is pretty confused on it’s actual name. So who cares. At least we got to see something good before dealing with what we’re putting ourselves in for in a fortnight…
