The Karate Kid is a 13-episode animated series based on the popular movie series of the same name. It retains apprentice Daniel LaRusso and his mentor Keisuke Miyagi but abandoned the karate tournament motif for an adventure/quest setting. A miniature shrine with healing powers had been taken from its resting place on Okinawa, and it was up to Miyagi and Daniel to recover it. Together with Okinawan girl Taki, the karatekas searched the globe and, naturally, encountered several opportunities to chop and kick their way out of trouble.
