Please HELP me to remember this animated movie
I need a little help. I saw an animated movie when I was a child back in the 80's, I can only remember it was about some medieval characters, and one of them was trying to save someone, so he faked to be a guard or seemed to be like in a trance or something like that, because he was with the bad guys for a while. The movie was very dark and dramatic, inside a castle. I also remember the characters had funny faces, I'm almost sure they had big noses. I saw it on Disney Channel of that time, but I'm sure it isn't the Black Cauldron.
Thanks for any help

That's the one!
Thanks to B5B7 & Hobbit! That's the show! After all the years, the three became 7, but that's definitely the show!

I don't know if you all remember this, but a while back I came on this forum asking about a claymation movie I saw back in the 80's, and after all these years, I finally remember what it was; "The Adventures of Mark Twain". Has anybody here seen it besides me?
Well, as luck would have it, I forgot the title of another animated film. It wasn't claymation, just normal animation, it was made in the 80's and I remember borrowing it from the local library as a little kid, and I ended up not wanting to watch it because it looked so dark and it creeped me out. All I remember about it was that it involved this Conan/He-Man looking hero and this hobbit/dwarf/gnome-like race who mostly were evil. At the beginning of the film, this group of these little dudes were planning on killing someone at the stroke of midnight. That's all I remember. It might have been from F.H.E. Entertainment, but I'm not sure. Any help would be dearly appreciated. Thanks.

Okay.I have come to ask about a television series from the 1970's.When I was 5-6 years old in the mid-1970's I remember one of the BIG 3 tv stations showed a revolving order Sci-Fi series about a cowboy finding his way into a underground society that was 100 of years ahead in technology.If I remember correctly it was NBC and one of the other tv shows in the rotation was Dracula.
Thank You for any and all help finding the answer to my question.

Okay all -
I need some help on this one. My husband, who was born in '51, tells me of this creepy sci-fi movie that he saw either as a boy or young person - he thinks it was called "20,000 b.c." or something but all of the "b.c." movies I have found do not sound like what he describes. I am thinking that he may be referring to "One million B.C." from 1940 but it doesn't look all that creepy from what I have seen of it from the internet (which isn't much). Does any of this ring a bell with anybody?

Space TV show (movie) saw as kid in summer 1984-1985
Ok here is one...
I am trying to rememebr a show I saw on TV one summer in 1984 or 1985. The TV show might have been created in the late 70's or early 80's.
The story takes place on a massive spaceship flying through space going towards a safe destination. The spaceship is made up of many sections (pods) that are so massive a different civilization has risen in each section of the ship. Most of the people in these sections do not even know they are on a ship as generations have come and gone while this ship is in space. A band of people realize they are on a ship and start travelling through each section. I think the final destination of these people was to fix the ship or just find out answers.
I can remember the show lasting like 1 or 2 weeks or maybe even the whole summer. I cant remember exactly as my father forbid me from watching it during the summer. He didnt want me to spend the days watching TV. :-)
The TV show was shown on an independent TV station in the SF Bay Area. It is truely a B scifi series. It might have been British as well.
Thanks for your help.

That's The Starlost. Harlan Ellison was involved with that show. It starred Kier "2001" Dullea:

1980s NBC movie
I am trying to remember a TV movie, that I remember from the 1980's. The main character had a bow and arrow. As I remember the the bow at a red jewel in the center and the characters could see images like a crystal ball.
I think is was a TV movie maybe on NBC. It could be the movie 'Conqest', but I don't think it was.
Does any of this sound familiar?

PLEASE HELP: old animated movie...80's?
Ok, I have searched and racked my brain for years and years about this movie. NO ONE on earth knows what I'm talking about, but I hope you will!!
It is and old animated movie I checked out from my library. I was born in '85 so I'm guessing it was an '8os movie. It was an "fhe" movie. I remembered three letters being drawn out in three different colors, and just last night a friend found her Pound Puppies movie and I saw the "fhe" symbol. I freaked and screamed and scared her half to death. This was my SECOND clue to finding this movie!
My first clue is what I remember about this movie, what little it is...
It is drawn like that of "The Hobbit." I like to call it old school animation. It is a fantasy I believe involving faries/elves? The main "guy" was blue and the scene I remember took place in a forest. The "bad guy" was this very large shadow that had a long nose and a jagged "crown" shape on his head. He moved among the forest, which was very dark, and the shadow casted upon the trees. I also remember his "scream" he had. It was loud and scary...
I HOPE TO GOD someone knows what I am talking about! I have searched for years for this movie and it would REALLY mean alot to me if I could find it!
While we are on the subject of old movies, haha, I have one more for you. I've read some of the threads and posts and you all seem VERY knowledgeable. I have NO clue when this movie was made, or ANYTHING about it except for this:
The movie was part animation and part "real." A girl with a yellow shirt with red jumper over it? could go into the ocean, that was when it turned into animation. She could talk to this huge whale sitting at the ocean floor...I think to try and save a "real" beached whale on shore...
It has been driving me crazy trying to figure out what that movie was!
Both of these movies I watched alot as a child and CANNOT for the life of me remember what they are. It would mean so much if anyone could tell me anything about them!
Thank you so much!

The show you're thinking of was "Cliffhangers". I remember watching this too and The Curse of Dracula was my favorite segment.

I got another one for ya;
In the early 90's I remember this space opera sci-fi series that came on CBS. It was very short lived. All I remember about it was that it was about a certain ship and one of the characters was a rather ugly, short, pug-faced woman. That's all I remember.
