With the help of his trusty steed - an eccentric goat called Albrecht - Dave hopes to convince the court that being rather small, distinctly green, and, frankly, A DRAGON is no barrier to knighthood. GASP as he jousts with Sir Gnasty! DUCK as he tries to pacify brawling peasants! And CHEER as he finally wins his Special Knight's Hat!
