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

[theme narration]
Narrator: The Great Cities have risen and fallen. Civilization's grip on mankind has grown weak and arthritic. Dark forces seek to renew forgotten covenants, and primordial beasts reclaim the wilderness. Out of the frozen north, a man emerges - a man of a barbaric age, whose merciless savagery may be the only key to his survival. They call him Korgoth!

Sex, Violence, and Heavy Metal
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Korgoth of Barbaria is a fresh new adult swim cartoon. The pilot episode shows us what we are in for! This show's fight scenes are gruesome and often hilarious! Korgoth is the total bad ass barbarian that fears no one, and drinks like a fish. Korgoth fights extremely all-out! From ripping people's faces off to slicing others completely in half! Bottom line, the violence is WAY over the top, but fun to watch! Just remember, this is on Adult Swim for a reason! I look forward to more Korgoth!

The Last Word: Korgoth rules! A man's show with a manly hero. I will buy the season 1 DVD as soon as it's available! Don't miss this! BTW, the music rules!
