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

Frank Welker played Niddler similarly to the character "Peewit" he played in The Smurfs (1981). See more »
This should be easier than taking candy clams from a baby.

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 »
I heard of this show when it first came out, but regrettably I never had the chance to actually see it. Looking at it now, it stands tall today among other silly toons kids see these days. Nicely animated for a kids show and some good imaginative writing makes it a cut above, if only it was ever completed. Too bad production costs were high to make each episode, had it got more press and fans, this show would have gotten the attention,respect, and justice it so rightfully deserves. I love the characters of this show as they're all so memorable and the protagonists grow and mature in the short time of the series. Ren's a cool character with all his naiveté, charm, bravado, and swagger. Tula's my second favorite since she's got those nifty Ecomancer powers and hot outfit! Then of course there's Ioz, the charming rogue joining the brotherhood of the brave, and finally Niddler the monkeybird you just wish was real. The bad guys of course steal the show since three of them are voiced by well respected actors. The big bad Bloth is voiced by Brock Peters, who sounds like he's having a lot of fun in the part. Konk is played by the veteran Tim Curry and finally Mantus played by Peter Cullen of Transformers fame. But the real surprise is Jodi Benson as Tula, the same woman who played Ariel the Mermaid. The world of Mer is bursting with imagination and danger. Should you find the DVD don't hesitate to grab it!
