Trivia

In this series, the Serpent Men are not slain, but are transported to Set's dimension when exposed to star metal. This capitulation is similar to Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, where the aliens were sent to another dimensions instead of dying. This property of Serpent Men was not seen in Howard's original stories (the Serpent Men only appeared in the Kull story "The Shadow Kingdom" of Howard's own stories). In Marvel Team-Up#111, it was noted that dead Serpent did go to a special limbo dimension when dying. See more »

Conan the He-Man
29 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nothing like the original books, or the comics or the film,apart from the name, there is little to associate this with the Conan character.But if you try to judge it on it's own merits,it's not a bad little cartoon series,certainly better than a lot of the pap that is out there.

Also,working in the confines of the TV cartoon industry is not the easiest of tasks,no violence,no swearing,no womanising,which cuts a lot out of the original Conan myth! Here in the origin story,meteorites fall and Conan's dad makes him a sword from them,hence a magic sword which draws in the He-Man connection. Evil Wrath-Amon wants the meteorites to bring the serpent man back into this world that they used to rule,a plot taken from the Kull books from Conan author,Robert E.Howard. This sets up the running quest as Conan goes up against Wrath-Amon who wants the sword and has turned Conan's family to stone.

To enable some battles with the sword,it's touch sends the serpent men (disguised as men) back to their outer-worldly dimension. Nice little touch which gets the sword into use without any bloodletting. As mentioned,it's difficult to work round all the regulations laid down for kid's cartoons.

So,taken on it's own standards, this isn't a bad little series and judged on those,it's works pretty well and I quite enjoyed it.

Just, repeat, don't expect the real Conan in this and you might be pleasantly surprised.
