First off, let me say I didn't expect much from this series since it only had one season. I had never seen the show since it never aired on Canadian TV. But, being a big Conan fan (and everything related to Robert E. Howard's creations) I decided to purchase the set. Off course it's not really true to Howard's work, but no one has ever been except for Howard himself. But there are a few elements reminiscent of scenes from the novels or the old Marvel comic's series.
Frankly, I was blown away by how much fun this show is. It doesn't take itself too seriously but it definetely delivers in terms of entertainment. It reminds me of Hercules the Legendary Journeys, or meaby the Sinbad series. Ralf Moeller delivers a good performance as the powerful barbarian. He has the build, the determined frown and he sounds like Arnold when he played Conan for the big screen. The supporting cast is great and filled with memorable characters.
The only thing that costs this review the much coveted 5th star is the 3D special effects. We're kinda far from Industrial Lights and Magic... So sometimes the animated elements mix roughly with the live action elements. But hey! As I said the show is about being entertaining not about breakthrough special effects.
So this DVD set is well worth it for die-hard Conan fans or any fans of fantasy adventure "a la" Hercules, Xena or Sinbad. But if you take your fantasy too seriously you might be put off by the lightness of it all. Have fun !!!

Sword/sorcery and TV format never were best friends. The tight budget coupled with the 50 minutes running time were not made for such adventurer stories. Luckily, the producers made the most out of what they had. 22 episodes of simple fun !!!!!

Who is really Conan, how does he sound like..... nobody knows. Ralf Moeller is not a great actor, but after he few episodes, he truly believes that HE IS CONAN. That is all that matters. He is physically massive and reads his lines in a way that he will make you believe that that he portrays the barbarian the way it was meant to be. The rest of the acting crew is pretty good. Rapidly, you will choose your favorite one.

Plots varies in quality and that is probably the weak point of the serie. Veteran S. and S. viewers will see the storyline twists and scenario punches coming from a mile ahead. The special effects are a bit primitive (low-budget).

The production is quite detailed. The sets are nice and the photography is splendid. Tons of bettle scenes and lots of action (a bit too much to my taste). I do not know what is in the Cimmerian water, but you have you be a pretty wicked witch so that you did not turn out to be a totally gorgeous woman. They spent plenty of $$$ on starlets. All in all, it is a very lush production. I watched a few episodes on a big panoramic screen and it was an eyeful in every way.

Buy this one, even at the $50 price. It is worth every penny. Warning : Do not watch them at machine gun pace or you will find the fight scenes repetitive. Other than that, it is pure magic.

HASH(0x97f420b4) out of 5 stars Great Unappreciated Show!!! Oct. 1 2004
By lordjaga - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First a quick review:

Picture quality is fine , colorful and clear with some minor compression occasionally (5 episodes per 1 sided discs,last disc has 2 episodes) Sound is clear and crisp. Episodes are uncut as memory serves.

Correct episode order:

On disc 1 Heir Apparent which originally aired last as #22 was filmed fourth. Heir Apparent should be watched as the last episode on disc 1. (watch as the 5th episode on disc 1) for continuity reasons. Lethal Wizards IS the SERIES FINALE. Explanation below:

When the show ran originally, one of the Main actors (not Conan) appears to have left the show after the third episode (Lair of the Beastmen) and a new actor takes over a new role on the fourth episode (The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar). 17 episodes later the series finale airs (Lethal Wizards which has a definite and satisfying ending to the series). Then, Heir Apparent aired as the last episode and because this was really filmed fourth with the original actor before a new actor had been introduced into the series a new voice over was made explaining why the new guy was gone and why the old guy was back. Confusing right?

To rectify this simply watch Heir Apparent after The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar and everything fits perfectly.

Hopefully this helps anyone watching the show.

HASH(0x97f42300) out of 5 stars fun series Jan. 24 2005

Format: DVD
One review on here states that this series got better as it went along. I agree. This series really does improve with each episode and the final conclusion is quite satisfying. This entire DVD set plays out like one big movie. I love the cast and the characters in this series. Cool and funny heroes and hot female warriors! What more could I ask for? This is great! Plus the low budget fx don't hurt either. Brian Yuzna produced this and nobody does low budget effects like Yuzna. I like cheesy fun and have a good imagination. Conan the series has provided me with hours of fun.

HASH(0x97f42540) out of 5 stars Low budget series but high quality DVD set! Dec 25 2004

I just got this as a gift for Christmas and I'm thrilled with it. I'm having a blast watching it. I just want to take a moment to give my appreciation for the quality of this set. Everything from the box art to the slim individual cases of each volume... I also really like how the menus are set up. And there's even chapters for each individual episode. Something you don't get in a lot of the more popular & highly regarded shows. This package was put together with care. Since there is (unfortunately) only one season someone had the good sense to make it right.

HASH(0x97f427bc) out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FUNNEST DVD SETS THERE IS! Feb. 14 2006
By R. Rawley - Published on
Format: DVD
The continuing adventures of Conan are often quite different from what Robert Howard wrote. This is true of Conan's further literary, animated, film, comic book, and TV adventures. This doesn't mean there is plenty of Conan related entertainment that delivers a fun experience. I'm a fan of Howard's work and I enjoy Conan in various forms too. The reviewer who claims that the Arnold movies are "true" Howard is maistaken. The story told in Arnold's Conan movies is VERY DIFFERENT from what Howard wrote. Neither movie remains true to Howard's writings but they are fun. So is this series. It's more kid friendly than the films but it's still a great blast of fun. The cast is awesome and it's a wonderful DVD set. A+!

By Ridley S. - Published on

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.

2.Blood Brother-Conan along with his new friends Needle and Zula are enslaved by spies of Wrath-Amon. Now Conan must face the monster that cursed his family.

3.Star of Shadizar-Conan and Zula journey to Shadizar to find the Star of Transmutation, a powerful magical jewel which might help Conan break the curse on his family. On the way they meet a mysterious circus performer named Jazmine who might help them on their quest.

4.Conan the Gladiator-When Conan and Jezmine are given the news that Zula has been captured by cannibals and is presumed dead, Conan vows to find his Blood Brother.

5.The Heart Of Rakkir-Wrath-Amon has discovered the location of the Heart of Rakkir which will give him the power over a sea monster. He finds out that only a person with Atlantean blood may acquire the jewel. Luckily for Conan, he is the descedent of the Atlanteans.

6.Men Of Stone-When Wrath-Amon enslaves a village and turns their chief to stone, Conan goes to investigate the matter and learns the secret behind the curse, but will it cost him his friends?

7.The Terrible Torrinon-Conan, Jasmine and Snag ride into a town shunned by locals as being "cursed". There, they see a woman being carried away by an evil wizard, feared as the Terrible Torrinon. The adventuring trio mount a rescue, only to find that they have been deceived by a clever ploy of the villagers. Unfortunately, Wrath-amon too has been deceived, and he arrives to challenge Torrinon to a sorcerer's duel.

8.Greywolf Of Xanthus-Conan, Jezmine, and Zula journey to Xanthus, the ancient city of wizards, to look for a way to break the stone curse that Wrath-Amon placed on Conan's family. There, they meet and befriend a wizard named Greywolf.

9.Shadow Walkers-Conan and Greywolf are in the city of Phenion. When they are attacked by a gang of ninjas. The ninjas then explain that they are the Silent Dragons and they need his help. Conan agrees and the ninjas offer to teach him how to be a ninja.

10.The Claw Of Heaven-Conan and Greywolf hear of a tribe of Picts (primitives) whose shaman/tribal leader wields a staff with a piece of Star Metal forged in the shape of a claw upon it. This specially forged Star Metal amplifies magical power, so the duo must both persuade the Picts to give them the Claw and protect it from Mesmira and Skulkur.

11.The Serpent Riders Of Sett-Conan, Jasmine and Snag are travelling through a forest when they come across a band of warriors led by a youth, the ruler of the local land who was recently ousted by Wrath-Amon and his Serpent Men. Wrath-Amon captures castle and a mystical tomb of the Serpent Riders of Set, seven mystical 'horsemen' who served Set eons ago and who can be resurrected. Conan and the others agree to help the youth regain his castle.

12.Windfang's Eyrie-Windfang, Wrath-amon's number one general, kidnaps Jasmine and imprisons her in his lair. As Conan comes to her rescue the draconically deformed Windfang reveals his previous existence as a normal human to Jasmine.

13.Seven Against Stygia-Wrath-Amon is about to complete a second pyramid and come much closer to free his master Set. Conan and Zula discover this and call on the rest of their comrades so they may prevent it from happening.
