When Ren, a young son of a lighthouse keeper, rescues a stranger foundering in the rocks near his home, he learns the man was an aide to his true father, a great king. Ren is given a magic compass crystal that guides him to a dragon who shows him that the only way to claim his heritage is to find the Thirteen Treasures of Rule. Unfortunately, a pirate ship captained by the evil Bloth is also aware of this treasure and is relentlessly pursuing Ren for it. On his side, Ren soon acquires companions like Ioz the Pirate, Tula the Eco-Mage and Nibbler the Monkey Bird who help him in his quest. That quest becomes all the more urgent when Ren learns that the Dark Water, a carnivorous form of water that consumes anything it snares, threatens to envelope and destroy his world and only the treasures he seeks can stop it.Written by

Due to the good ratings this show received, the producers of this show decided to extend the adventures by finding fewer treasures per season compared to first and second seasons. While working on the third season (episode "The Dark Disciples" to "The Living Treasure"), Fil-Cartoons (Overseas Animation studio) had some difficulties with animating the last four episodes (episode "The Pandawa Plague" - "The Living Treasure") of this show. This caused problems for Hanna-Barbera animation studio, because the episodes were coming in late. This prevented the show from meeting the air dates. This led to the cancellation of the show in November and December 1992. The last four episodes were finished, and aired six months later (May 1993). But by that time, most of the crew of this show were already in the middle of the production of Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron (1993), and Cos Anzilotti (Producer of this show's third season) was already in the middle of the production of Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1990). Due to the failing of meeting the air dates, Jayne Barbera was replaced by Catherine Winder as "Executive in Charge of Production" for later Hanna-Barbera shows like Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron (1993) and 2 Stupid Dogs (1993).

The first five episodes were originally aired in 1991 as the mini-series "Dark Water". The voice of the character Niddler the Monkey-bird was played by Roddy McDowall. After this became a TV series, when the first 5 episodes were rerun, the voice of Niddler was redubbed by Frank Welker and other editing changes were made. See more »
Great show, a bit corny, but a good plot that never gets resolved.
This was a great show!!
On first glance, it may seem a bit dorky and juvenile.
However, if one actually watches all the episodes in order, they have a good story to tell.
If you can ignore the blatant morality imposed on all American cartoons [can never kill the bad guy, even if he just tried to kill you for the 10th time], then this is a REALLY good cartoon. Serialized and everything.
The story continues from one episode to the next, yet abruptly stops without any conclusion. That is a real letdown and disappointment. Even Cartoon Network has commented on this in a humour commercial.
