The Conan on display in the children’s cartoon of the early ’90s isn’t the Conan I know from the Arnold Schwarzenegger movies of the early ’80s or the Robert E. Howard stories of the early ’30s.
Those of you awaiting the “Conan the Barbarian” 3-D remake hitting theaters on Aug. 19, satisfy your hunger for swords and sorcery until then with Shout! Factory’s DVD release of “Conan the Adventurer: Season One,” streeting July 26.
It’s two discs of the 1982 cartoon series. I wasn’t even aware there was a cartoon series. We’ll have a review soon. In the meantime, feast on these three clips. —Rod Lott
