The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe is a Danish/British animated television series created by The Amazing World of Gumball's animators Eva Lee Wallberg and Christian Bøving-Andersen. It began airing on Cartoon Network in Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden on November 20, 2017.[1] The series is the second to be produced by Cartoon Network Studios Europe (formerly known as Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe). It is a parody of the 1820 British novel "Ivanhoe" by Sir Walter Scott.

Plot[edit]

The series follows the adventures of Ivandoe (voiced by Rasmus Hardiker), the young prince of the forest whose father, The Mighty Stag, sends him on a quest for the magical Golden Feather of the fearsome Eagle King. Ivandoe and his dedicated squire, a small bird named Bert (also voiced by Hardiker), discover new and mysterious areas of the forest and an array of peculiar creatures along the way.

As Prince Ivandoe and his squire Bert begin their quest for the golden feather, they come across a bridge that is constantly being cleaned by six sassy gnomes. The gnomes refuse to let Ivandoe and Bert cross because of the former's "nasty, stinky hooves". They form into mech-style person and Ivandoe and Bert pathetically do the same. When Bert accidentally defecates on the bridge, the gnomes cannot resist doing their jobs and get distracted.

The two princes get into a "Prince-Off" with Svan besting Ivandoe. During the Royal Roar, Svan lets out a mighty quack while Ivandoe makes another squeal. However, a giant fearsome monster, who just so happens to have a similar squeal, arrives.
