Conan: The Adventurer - Season 2: Part 1 (Shout! Factory DVD)


Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Episodes: C+



Conan The Barbarian is the mightiest warrior ever. After his family was frozen in stone he vows to find a cure and restore them by sending the serpent men back into another dimension and defeating their leader, the evil sorcerer Wrath-Amon. Along with wise cracking baby phoenix Needle, and other his other warrior friends (Zula, Jezmine, Greywolf, and Snagg) and his magic starmetal sword they seek to rid the land of Wrath-Amon and his evil influence in the new set of Conan The Adventurer.


As he fights various evils and challenges in his never-ending quest to find a cure for family locked in living stone, each episode has him joined by one or two of his friends as they aid him in his quest. They not only search for clues to cure Conan's family but for starmetal, the only material that is able reveal the serpent men and send them back to their dimension, but the evil sorcerer Wrath-Amon seeks to steal the starmetal as well, to resurrect his evil master Set.


This was a sword swinging, children appropriate series cartoon. A heroic barbarian character set off to fight evil. Each animated episode has him battling evil, not only with his sword, but also cunning, wits and learns the meaning of friendship and teamwork in a land of magic, danger and adventure.
