Show Description

The Disney Channel Original Series, Dave the Barbarian is an animated comedy series following the escapades and adventures of the title character, his family members, a pet dragon and a talking sword in the Middle Ages fictional land of Udrogoth.

Dave is a "Cowardly Lion" character, powerful but afraid of his own shadow, which leads to many unintentional comedic scenarios. He lives with his two sisters, Candy and Fang, who have been left in charge of Udrogoth in the absence of their King and Queen parents who are off on a worldwide quest to fight evil. The parents frequently communicate with their youngsters via a magical cauldron (and at times, a crystal ball), with a Wizard uncle Oswidge providing "adult" supervision.

Much like similar "Stone Age" comedies such as The Flintstones and Hagar the Horrible, Dave the Barbarian routinely juxtaposes both the primitive surroundings of Udrogoth with more "modern" environments (shopping malls, the Internet, etc.), and the "breaking the fourth wall" technique is also frequently utilized, with characters and narrator directly addressing the camera.
