Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Arabian Knights vs. The Great Brass Beast (1968)

Time for another adventure of the Arabian Knights, from The Banana Splits Adventure Hour.

Van-Gore (Paul Frees) creates a "Great Brass Beast" (read: giant robot) to help Bakaar (John Stephenson) conquer a neighboring kingdom. Of course, you know the Knights will have something to say about that.

Rating: A-.

I always liked The Arabian Knights - a Middle Eastern Justice League of sorts!

I still wish TPTB had done a crossover between this show and Shazzan. It would have been a great way to bring closure to both shows.

It would've worked only if NBC had picked up Shazzan after CBS dropped it and H-B continued with the Knights after the first season.

However, reviving them for a DTV movie is one idea worth putting forward.
