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.

Quotes

Scrotus: You! You will regret what you have done this day. I will make you regret ever being born! You're going to wish you'd never left your mother's womb, where it was warm, and safe, and wet. I'm going to show you pain you never knew existed. You're going to see a whole new spectrum of pain like a rainbow!
Hargon: You tell 'em Scrotus! *screams as Korgoth crushes his head some more*
Scrotus: But! This rainbow, is not just like any other rainbow, it's- *gets interrupted by Korgoth ripping his skin off*

So pitch perfect it was hard to believe
11 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Have you ever been to an animation film festival? Imagine one of the funniest of the violent independent animations you've seen, fill it full of gag humor like you might see on Futurama, apply a mini-epic plot, add copious amounts of heavy metal, and you've got Korgoth of Barbaria.

Made by Aaron Springer of SpongeBob SquarePants fame, the brilliant pilot suggests someone who has been under the constrains of a animation for children for a little too long. While the drawing style is like few other things on TV (it really does have that independent feel), the animation direction of Genndy Tartakovsky is very apparent in the quick, jerky action oriented style, very similar to his Samurai Jack.

This show shows promise like few others I've seen and is part of a lineup that will probably go down as a golden age in original programming for adultswim.
