Go to Google Image Search and put this in the search criteria (remove the double quotes and make sure there is a trailing space):

"d&d animated series "

Search gets truncated to "D". Why?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Odd. Not just this search argument though; it's everything containing a & and ending in a space. And the truncation doesn't happen when you do a normal search first and then switch to "images". Maybe you should file a bug report with Google. – Mr Lister Jun 24 '12 at 7:33
@MrLister Done. Thanks for helping me confirm. – ray023 Jun 24 '12 at 10:09

After you get the search results, put your query again in the search box. It will work this time.

This is probably a google images bug
