Perusing the web yesterday, I came across a clip from a new series set to air on Comedy Central in April called Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire. Now… I asked myself… What exactly is a “Kröd Mändoon”?
It appears that Kröd Mändoon is a guy, kind of like Quest from World of Quest, who wanders around in a fantasy/medieval world and tries to right wrongs. (I’ve included the video after the break…)
Evidently Matt Lucas (a British comedian) stars as Kröd Mändoon. He has a flaming sword, and he tours around his world saving people from the oppression of the evil ruler Chancellor Dongalor. During the course of his travels, he gathers a small band (of course, because it’s tough being a hero alone unless you’re Clint Eastwood or Rambo) of heroes to help him. A beautiful Pagan warrioress, an oaf, a warlock, and others… Somehow they roped John Rhys-Davies into the mix…
It’s quite a mix of people. The promo looks fun. They describe it as “Monty Python” meets “The Princess Bride.” I just see it as a live action World of Quest. 🙂
I’ll be sure to check it out when it premieres on April 9, 2009 on Comedy Central!
