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.

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 »

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!

"I've dated uglier girls than you for breakfast"
9 June 2006 | by The_ToymachineSee all my reviews

This show is awesome I just wanted to get that out there before i went over it. The show makes fun of barbarians and stuff like that, the over the top violence in this show makes it absolutely hilarious. The fight scenes in this remind me of my 11th grade honors English class when me and my friends would talk about fight scenes that would be awesome. This show is very funny and i hope it does well in the future. The show deserves to be on Adult Swim, and it fits in nicely, so i think you should go out and watch it.

OH i almost forgot, one liners in this show are killer, as well as the creatures he fights. Check it out you won't regret it
