This has been around forever, to the point where I’m surprised that I haven’t posted it before now. Korgoth of Barbaria is the pilot episode to a cartoon series created by Aaron Springer (creator of Dexter’s Laboratory, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Spongebob Squarepants) and Genndy Tartakovsky (creator of Samurai Jack, the 2D Clone Wars cartoons, Sym-bionic Titan) for Adult Swim. Sadly, the show was never picked up – it was deemed “too expensive” by the network – and all that remains of what might have been a terrific series is a single episode. Watching this, I can’t help but feel a bit sad that this show never made it. It’s just so damn awesome – like the choice cuts of Conan the Barbarian, Heavy Metal and first edition Dungeons and Dragons all rolled up into one package of cartoony goodness.
Parts 2 and 3 are under the cut!
