NotesMore goings on in King Arthur's England in animated form. "The heroine in the story is the daughter of one of the original knights of Camelot who tries to return Excaliber to King Arthur and revenge her father's death by a traitor from the knighthood. In the adventure she meets and pairs up with a young man who is blind who helps her along in this adventure. They both overcome the villain in the end as a team, send the traitor to where all traitors go, marry and live happily ever after with King Arthur's blessing. I do like the fact in the story that the hero is blind and remains so (kind of like real life?) yet he can be a hero, fall in love and live happily ever after anyway. " Summary by Mary Reese. Animations are not my cup of tea unless it's The Simpsons or Wallace & Gromit. In Quest for Camelot we have simple drawings with a melodramatic script, and worse some very bland songs. The blind, young man vies with Rutger Hauer in "Blind Fury" (1990) for disabled hero least inhibited by their disability. These blind heroes couldn’t just drive a car they could beat Micheal Schumacher.
