A to Z of How I Learned to Love D&D: T is for Tom Hanks
If your of a certain age, there was a good chance you saw this TV special warning against the dangers of Dungeons and Dragons and well...Satan.
DnD was going to steal your kid's souls and lead them to Hell, most probably while they listened to Ozzy.
And before he was on Busom Buddies or played Forest Gump, Tom Hanks--yes THE Tom Hanks was the tortured soul who got sucked into it all.
I really don't remember much about the TV show, and I can't say that it left any anti-DnD message with me. I just remember thinking, "Boy these kids are messed up,"
And not from playing Mazes and Monsters.
Its always fun to go back and stroll the era you grew up in.
