Dungeons & Dragons View-Master Reels from 1983



Dungeons & Dragons View-Master Reels: "Castle Venger" (1983)


If you're not familiar with the classic View-Master toy, it was essentially a binocular device for viewing stereoscopic still slides that were called "reels". You advanced the slide one at a time via a spring-powered lever on the side of the device. There was no sound beyond that click and release of the lever. These particular slides feature characters from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, which ran for three seasons, from 1983 to 1985. Many of the characters, such as "Strongheart Good Paladin", were also made into toys. The slides were sold under the title "Castle Venger". As far as I'm aware, this wasn't a storyline showed on the cartoon, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had recycled the images from other episodes.
