The Adventures of Don Coyote and Sancho Panda is an American/Italian animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera with the Italian public service broadcaster RAI, loosely based on the main characters in Miguel de Cervantes' 17th century novel, Don Quixote: Don Quixote himself and Sancho Panza. It was first broadcast in 1989 in Europe, and then in the United States in 1990 as part of the weekend/weekday morning programming block, The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.

Plot[edit]

Don Coyote (voiced by Frank Welker) is a swordsman who goes around saving people. With the help of Don Coyote's noble horse Rosinante (voiced by Brad Garrett), Sancho Panda (voiced by Don Messick) and his voice-of-cynicism donkey Dapple (voiced by Frank Welker), these crusaders of chivalry ride the countryside fighting for truth, justice, and beauty. Their attempts to do so are complicated by Don Coyote's state of mental unbalance and constantly mistaking everyday objects for horrific monsters.
