Storyline

Korgoth is a 22-minute animated parody of the sword and sorcery genre and follows the exploits of the most feared and physically awesome barbarian the world has ever seen. When an unsavory ruffian swings an axe into Korgoth's shoulder, it just makes him angry. And he's irritable and bellicose at the best of times. Korgoth lives in a world of spiteful wizards, overweight inn-keepers, devious and hedonistic thieves and distressed, scantily-clad maidens. Through brute strength, an absolute adherence to the tenets of stoicism, and a fair amount of sheer luck, Korgoth often finds himself coming out ahead of his medieval antagonists.

... that can explain just how awesome this 'toon is. If you find animated violence offensive, run far, far away, as fast as you can. If you, like me, find it to be excellent in the ways of humor and/or stress relief, then Korgoth is PERFECTION. The men are ugly, guttural, simplistic and brutal. The woman are beautiful and maidenly. The battles are gruesome and fantastic, unbridled violence, gore and bloodshed in the extreme. To top it all off, it's funny as all hell! The humor comes at you at multiple levels starting with basic low-brow bathroom jokes leading up to amusing parodies of more subtle situations. Obviously, while a cartoon, this is intended only for adults. Kids, turn it off and go to bed, already! Make more episodes, for God's sake and, Cartoon Network, air them, please!
