Conan the Adventurer - TV series

Complete run, from 1997/98. Looks pretty cheesy, but fantasy/Conan so hey.

I watched them all back in the day. The stories were actually interesting, but the lack of violence used to bother me. Still, I think I'd like to see them again, just like watching the old D&D cartoon again was fun.

Re: Conan the Adventurer - TV series

If you have a Roku or Amazon Fire the complete series is on a free channel called Hasbro Cartoons. I've been watching them like crazy. It's about as violent as the cartoons of the day (there is some death, though) and has an annoying sidekick animal but the show is surprisingly faithful to Howard's places, gods, etc. Plus that credits intro: CONAN! Mightiest warrior EVER!
I freely admit I'm biased to anything with Christy Marx's name on it.

Hasbro channel is long gone but you can watch all 65 episodes on Tubi now. Either the Tubi channel on Roku/Amazon or on the web.
Mightiest cartoon EVER!

Re: Conan the Adventurer - TV series

Going through all of the episodes now. just finished season 1, but season 2 is 52 episodes!!

EDIT>> 
Note the first 13 episodes (Season 1) were almost an hour-long (45 min of cartoon, figuring for 15 minutes of commercials). However the second season is only 22 minutes each, so they dropped to a 30-minute playtime with commercials on TV. Already on episode 18 today should have them all watched on Tuesday next week (watching while working).

About to start rewatching them again. Watching them as a Howard fan is super-fun for the references. While the violence can never be more than any other kids' show the writers were clearly invested in remaining faithful and consistent to the Hyborian-age world.
