Conan: The Adventurer - Season One DVD Review

My son likes anything that involves people wielding swords, fighting evil or speaking like they are badasses.  So, it didn't take much to realize that he would like Conan the Adventurer.  Although the premise and storylines went completely over his head (he's only 3!) he still enjoyed it.  I wasn't a big fan, but I have always found comic booky movies and shows to be not my cup of tea.  But, I am sure a good many people both young and old can enjoy this type of show!
"By Crom! Let the acolytes of Conan rejoice as the fiercest Barbarian to ever roam the Earth arrives in this complete Season One DVD release!  Join in the fray as Conan and his  fellow adventurers — Jezmine, Snagg, Needle, Greywolf and Zula — quest to rescue Conan’s family from an evil spell cast by the Serpent Man wizard Wrath-Amon.  Armed with a powerful sword forged from Star Metal and faith in his god Crom, Conan will not stop until his family is safe and the evil wizard is reimprisoned in the mystical Abyss!
Produced by Sunbow, the 1980s animation giant behind Hasbro’s Transformers and G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero, Conan The Adventurer originally aired in Saturday morning syndication beginning in 1992 transitioning to a daily airing throughout 1993 in the second season."
