Galtar and the Golden Lance is a 30-minute animated sword and sorcery television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, which aired in syndication in 1985–86 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.[1] The show ran for 21 episodes and is thought to have been created due to the rising popularity of the He-Man franchise.[2]


The series is about the mythical sword-and-sorcery adventures of three companions: Galtar, Princess Goleeta, and her younger mind controlling brother Zorn.[3] Galtar, with the help of his Golden Lance, is fighting with Tormack, the tyrannical usurper of the kingdom of Bandisar, who is conquering their entire world. Tormack is responsible for the death of both Galtar's parents and assassinating the rest of Goleeta and Zorn's family.[4]

Tormack covets the power of the Golden Lance, wishing to combine it with the Sacred Shield, which rightfully belongs to Goleeta and Zorn. Whoever holds both becomes invincible. The Golden Lance normally exists as a short staff. However, when Galtar holds it above his head with both hands, it extends two mystical blades, one on each side, and can then be divided into two swords for dueling. The enchantment that empowers the Golden Lance also protects it by releasing energy from its hilt (called the "Fury of the Golden Lance") when held by an unworthy wielder.

The series was cancelled before the final outcome of the conflict between Galtar and Tormack could be revealed.


  • Galtar - The main character of the series and wielder of the Golden Lance.
  • Princess Goleeta - The princess of Bandisar.
  • Zorn - The younger, mind-controlling brother of Princess Goleeta.
  • Thork - Galtar's loyal horse.
  • Tormack - The primary villain of the series
  • Rak and Tuk - A father and son dwarf duo who are inept mercenaries and have a tendency to double-cross others on both sides. They claimed that it was the only work that they know.

Supporting characters

  • Ither - Keeper of the Golden Lance, who eventually puts it into Galtar's cave.
  • Vikor - Leader of the raiders who also seeks the Golden Lance.
  • Pandat - The prince of a race called Nerms, who occasionally aid the heroes.
  • Marin - A feral child who rescues and befriends Zorn.
  • Rava - Tormak's niece who allies herself with Galtar and Goleeta. She wore a magical gauntlet that could command fire and ice through the gemstones embedded in it. The gauntlet also had a black gemstone that could be used to summon Raven's Claw. Rava later gave this gauntlet to Goleeta.
  • Raven's Claw - A fierce and powerful red dragon who comes to the aid of Galtar and Goleeta during the first episode of the series. Rava later gives Goleeta her magical gauntlet so she can summon Raven's Claw at will.
