I saw an animated TV special in the early 80s. It was a fantasy about a wizard who made his shadow come to life in order to dance with it. Then the shadow grew evil and turned itself into a shadow dragon and chased everyone from the castle. In the tradition of early 80s fantasies, a band of heroes had to enter the castle and kill the shadow dragon.

Anyone know the title of this special? I believe it ran in primetime about 1981 or 1982. Thanks for any suggestions.

That sounds like the first episode of the Dungeons and Dragons animated series, although I haven't seen it in ages.

Could be Faeries.

Faeires is about a boy named Oisin that finds himself in the realm of magic folk who need his help in defeating the King's evil Shadow that is draining their powers."
