Many of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s love our nostalgia, especially when it comes to cartoons. We grew up with the best cartoons ever produced. Now many of us(including myself) ask ourselves,"Where did all the good cartoons go?" Thanks to Shout! Factory, we can experience one of the most underrated and often-forgotten action cartoon, Conan the Adventurer.
Based on Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, Conan the Adventurer debuted in 1992. Like many other 90s action cartoons, Conan the Adventurer was successful and ran for 51 episodes. Although successful, Conan the Adventurer remains one of the most underrated action cartoons.
Conan the Adventurer centers around Conan, a young barbarian and his friends Needle a baby phoenix, Zula a shaman, Jasmine a circus acrobat, Greywolf a wizard, Falkenar, a flying warrior and Snagg a wiking as they set out to find a cure to save Conan's family who have been petrified by the evil serpent wizard Wrath-Amon. Wrath-Amon himself is out to free his master Sett, a giant cobra demon who long ago was imprisoned by Conan's ancestors.
Thanks to this, we can now witness this highly underrated cartoon and feel like we're in the 90s once again. Here are the episodes.
1.The Night Of Fiery Tears-Conan, a young barbarian in Cimmeria, has his family turned to stone by the cruel warlord Wrath-Amon. Now the young warrior must go on a quest to break the curse on his family and end the tyranny of Wrath-Amon.
