1994 The Norfin Adventures Castle of Doom

An animated special based on type of plastic doll with furry up-combed hair depicting a troll, also known as a Dam doll after their creator Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam. The toys were known as good luck trolls and were originally created in 1959, and became one of the United States' biggest toy fads in the early 1960s. They became fads again in brief periods from the 1970s through the 1990s and were copied by several manufacturers under different names. In the late 1980's, the Dam trolls were marketed under the trade name of Norfin Trolls in North America, with the Adopt A Norfin Troll logo on the tags. During the 1990s, several video games, a video show and animated specials were created based on troll dolls.

The Castle of Doom is a Halloween animated special originally released on VHS September 21, 1994. It's basically Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolfman as trolls, trying to scare away other trolls looking for something in mad scientist Doom's castle, you can’t beat that! A Christmas animated special called "A Norfin Noel" was released on VHS a year later.
