Based on "The Karate Kid" films, this 1989 animated series featured Daniel LaRusso (voiced by Joey Dedio) and his mentor Keisuke Miyagi (voiced by Robert Ito) abandoning the karate tournament motif for an adventure/quest setting. A miniature shrine with magic powers has been taken from its resting place on Okinawa, and it's up to Miyagi and Daniel to recover it. Together with an Okinawan girl, Taki Tamurai (voiced by Janice Kawaye), the karatekas search the globe and, naturally, encounter several opportunities to chop and kick their way out of trouble.
