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.

Trivia

On June 18, 2006, Adult Swim ran a bumper announcing that Korgoth of Barbaria was officially picked up as a series, because of its critical and commercial success with garnering high ratings. Later events, including a formal petition to revive the show, would indicate that it was dropped before production began, due to high production costs. See more »

Hairy balls of the Gods...
9 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

So there's only been one episode so far and it might be the best new cartoon in ages. Korgoth is a Brock Sampson meets Conan brute who only speaks in raspy one-liners provided by Diedrich Bader who leads ultra violent adventures filled with sexy interchangeable women and ugly interchangeable henchmen. All of this is accompanied by some serious asskicking power metal. This show dances the line between being an homage to 80s 2D animation and a parody of it. I'm glad adult swim allows entertainment like this to air. The shows creator worked on Spongebob and occasionally you can see it in the animation, esp the character movements and expressions. All around very funny and entertaining show, I hope it sticks around.
