33: The Gayest Saturday Morning Cartoon Episode Ever


“Odyssey of the Twelfth Talisman” (September 28, 1985)

Once upon a time, there was a Saturday morning cartoon based on Dungeons & Dragons, and in its final few episodes it had one of its male characters hit it off with a one-off NPC who was witty and matched him, insult for insult. This one-off also happened to be male, and whether by accident or whatever, the resulting episode plays out kinda like a male-on-male romcom that just happens to be situated in medieval fantasy setting. Don’t worry if you’ve never experienced a Dungeons & Dragons anything; Glen and Drew will walk you through it.
