If you are one of those that felt funny when watching the ending clips of Dragon's Lair when you were 8-10 yrs old you might be interested in knowing a little known fact about it: Princess Daphne's animations were not only inspired by Playboy magazine pictorials, but showed nipples, as described by Don Bluth himself in the DVD edition of the game. Bluth resorted to extense "documentation" for crafting the character poses, and while animators almost always remove nipples even if their characters have skin-tight clothing, Bluth left them in making an entire generation of videogamers very happy indeed.
