The Neverending Story Web Page

Television Series


The cartoon seems to be well-animated, and it is based on a mixture of the book and its characters and of the movies. However, it is a cartoon showing early Saturday and Sunday mornings, which means that it is directed to the youngsters and oftentimes specifically sends out a blatant moral message.

In the book, "But that's another story and shall be told another time" is a repeated phrase encouraging the reader to continue exploring the imagination. The cartoon now tells those other stories. Bastian picks up The Neverending Story and begins imagining more adventures, with friend Barktroll (a creature that is part tree, part troll). Those who oppose him often are Xayide and Nimbly.
