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.

Very Demented...yet satisfying!
10 June 2006 | by my56kSee all my reviews

Another wonderful piece of work from the brains behind Spongebob Squarepants,although don't be fooled by who made it,this isn't your little kids cartoon,while this is drawn by Genndy Tartakovski (from Rugrats,and various others) it has a very big feel along the same lines as Heavy Metal (not 2000)with the nitty gritty animation,metal soundtrack,and violence galore!though the pilot's just getting around now,I think this show could be another hit for Cartoon Networks Adult Swim lineup!although the title may suggest that this is a Midievil based cartoon series,that's actually an incorrect statement,as the story actually takes place years in the future,in a very bleak future where it seems as though all the worlds cities and structures have crumbled,forcing people to "regress" to an earlier time frame,this being why it seems so medieval.though somethings apparently still carry over to this time frame (ie-Bubblegum wrapped up like Juicy Fruit gum) and some other things that i can't think of at the moment,just watch it and see for yourself.
