Young Audience Family

Tomato-Man and the Knights of the Salad Table is an animated adventure series that will delight young children around the world. The Kingdom of Salad is a beautiful dreamland where vegetables, fruits and insects try, many times unsuccessfully, to live together in peace and harmony.

When the wicked Bug-bug gang casts an evil sleep-spell on the beautiful Princess Peach, King Boo-Melon sends for "The Withered Plum," an old hermit believed to have magical powers, to awaken the princess from her deep, eternal sleep.

To help protect the king "The Withered Plum" uses his magical powers to create a group of mighty warriors from ordinary fruits and vegetables, the Knights of the Salad Table. Tomato Man, our hero, was the last of the knights to be created by "The Withered Plum."
