Some of my fondest memories of early childhood involve the action packed and non-violent cartoons of the '80s. Well, the truth is I kept and nurtured that love all through high-school. During my teen years I watched a show that was truly an inspiration to guys like me - Conan the Adventurer: Season 1.
I've told my wife about this show many times during the course of our marriage and I've even sung the theme song at times. When she told me it was going to be available on DVD I told her we had to get it. I recently received and started watching season one of this great show with my kids. It's everything I remembered it to be.
Conan is basically the toughest fighter around. He searches for a way to save his family that's been turned to stone by an evil serpent man wizard. Luckily, he has a magic star metal sword that has the power to send the serpent men to the "Abyss" where they can do no more harm. He finds allies throughout his journey that help him on his quest.
Season One Episode List:
Disc 1 - The Night Of Fiery Tears, Blood Brother, Star Of Shadizar, Conan The Gladiator, The Heart Of Rakkir, Men Of Stone, The Terrible Torrinon
Disc 2 - Greywolf Of Xanthus, Shadow Walkers, The Claw Of Heaven, The Serpent Riders Of Set, Windfang’s Eyrie, Seven Against Stygia
Conan the Adventurer: Season One will be released in a 2 Disc DVD set on July 26, 2011 by Shout! Factory and Hasbro - SRP $19.93. For anyone who watched the show originally, this is a great chance to relive the adventure and for everyone else, it's an opportunity that shouldn't be missed.
