Jack's real, birth name is never revealed. In the second Pilot episode he decides to name himself with this alternate name after a group of young men got impressed by his actions.
The series is left open to interpretation. However, in the series, Jack finds a stable portal through time before he is defeated by the guardian. It is implied that Jack will return to the past one day as the portal shows his older, bearded self wearing a crown. The guardian states that it is not yet time for him to use the portal.On December, 2, 2015, Adult Swim announced that the show would be airing a new season on its Toonami programming block in 2016. The series is once again being produced at Cartoon Network Studios with Tartakovsky as executive producer. This could possibly show the continuous journey to Jack and maybe perhaps having a proper ending as many fans (including Genndy himself) have always wanted to see Jack coming back.
No, though the appearance of Samurai Jack himself is believably based on the Professors design from PPG. But they don't share anything related or common things in any ways.
