Conan the Adventurer was the name of a popular American animated television series adaptation of the literary and comic book character, Conan the Barbarian, created by Robert E. Howard in the 1930s. Produced by Jetlag Productions and Sunbow Productions, the series debuted on October 1, 1992, ran for 64 episodes and concluded one year later, on November 22, 1993.

Overview

This 64 episode cartoon series premiered October 1, 1992 and was produced by Sunbow Productions. The series was produced in association with Graz Entertainment for the first thirteen-episode season, and Jean Chalopin's Créativité et Développement for the remaining episodes. The series aired weekly in its first season and daily in its second.

Conan lived in Cimmeria with his parents throughout his childhood. While out with his grandfather one day on a trek, meteors dropped from the skies. Conan collected some of these "fiery tears" and brought them back to his family. The metal turned out to be Star Metal, the strongest metal in existence. Conan's father forged the Star Metal into various weapons and sold them. His finest work, a magnificent sword, he kept for Conan. This last weapon was laid in a crypt and covered over with a heavy stone slab. Conan's father told him that when Conan was "man enough" (i.e., strong enough) to push off the stone slab, he could own the sword.

The evil, shapeshifting, Serpent Man wizard Wrath-Amon wanted this Star Metal to release his deity Set from "the Abyss". Set had been banished from Earth long in the past by the combined powers of virtually every living wizard on Earth because he wanted to enslave the human race.

Upon hearing of this cache of Star Metal, Wrath-Amon went in search of Conan's family. Conan's father had sold most of the Star Metal by this point, and told Wrath-Amon that he had sold all of the star metal (this was a lie; aside from the sword, it was revealed in a later episode that he had hidden pieces of Star Metal with other villagers). Wrath-Amon used the spell of living stone upon Conan's family.

Conan sought the Star Metal sword to attack Wrath-Amon and his followers. When the Star Metal sword got near Wrath-Amon it disrupted his magic and showed his reptilian face. To this, he said, "Those who see the true face of Wrath-Amon must perish!" (This scene is similar to one in the film.)

Wrath-Amon's henchmen are also shapeshifting Serpent Men. When Conan's Star Metal sword is close enough to them it broke the spell that disguised them and revealed their true form to be Serpent-Men. When Star Metal made contact with the Serpent-Men it banished them to the Abyss with Set. Spies and agents of Set and Stygia, many of them also serpent-men, were present in many cities, nations and tribes throughout the land in the age of Conan.

Conan the Barbarian vs. Conan the Adventurer

As compared with the original Conan stories and the Marvel Comics such as King Conan, Conan Saga, Conan the Barbarian, and Conan the King, the cartoon Conan displays a higher degree of modern morality. While the Conan from these tales is bloody, a womanizer, thief and so on, cartoon Conan has more in common with sword-wielding cartoon characters such as He-Man.

He is a kind and caring character, albeit a little naive, who stands up for his friends and what he sees to be right and is very respectable.

It is possible that when Conan the Adventurer came out, the original planned villain was the skull-faced sorcerer Thulsa Doom[citation needed] who was the template for He-Man's archenemy Skeletor. However, Wrath-Amon (who is loosely based on Thoth-Amon) came into existence as the main villain.

The series also spawned a small toyline in 1992 created by Hasbro.

Eventually, the final plot where Wrath-Amon summons the evil serpent demon Set was placed in the 2002 version of He-Man.[citation needed] In this storyline, King Hiss and the snakemen summon their god, Serpos, and He-Man fights Serpos to save Eternia.

This first incarnation of Conan in cartoon form performed much better than its sequel, Conan and the Young Warriors, which lasted only 13 episodes.

Characters

Heroes

  • Conan (voiced by Michael Donovan): The main character of the story. In this version, his parents are turned into living stone and there are few hints of his predestination of becoming a king; the references come as either a private joke to those who know the Conan mythos (one episode ended with him wearing a crown on his head, to the amusement of his allies) or as a finale note (In one episode in particular, Conan rescues a princess from a one-shot villain. Her father, a king, promised his kingdom to whoever returned her safely home and naturally, Conan succeeds in rescuing her which is a spoof of the adult Conan movie's King Osric asking Conan to rescue his daughter but Conan does not rescue her from Wrath-Amon but is thrown in prison for demanding the promised payment which is his weakness here. He is rescued then by the princess he saved who comments that Conan would always be a king in her heart as the closing line). It is stated a few times that he and his Cimmerian tribe are descended from the people of Atlantis, and Conan is a descendant of Atlantean kings. Unlike Conan the Barbarian, he is more of a kind and caring character with Jezmine as the only woman he's involved with. He shows mercy to some of his opponents and nonetheless reconciles with friends, unlike the original Conan the Barbarian. He is portrayed to be able to break metal chains, do more unusual feats of strength as well unlike the movie Conan. He eventually defeats his long-time archenemy Wrath-Amon, the leader of the Snake Cult but was forced to face the old leader of the Snake Cult Ram-Amon as well as Set (his final enemy) in the last battle. By vanquishing Set, he had somewhat permanently defeated the Snake Cult. He has a star metal sword
Needle
  • Needle (voiced by Michael Beattie): Conan's fledgling phoenix sidekick and only constant companion. He possessed the ability to enter flat surfaces and magically transform into a phoenix design (although he needed his magical tail feathers to accomplish this feat, and lost this power if he lost one of them). He spent most of his time inside Conan's shield. Needle speaks in the third person giving others nicknames (i.e. he calls Conan "big dumb barbarian") and loves to eat pomegranates. He eventually learns how to harness his full power and aid Conan in battle. When in public, Needle (who has the ability to speak) is often asked to impersonate a parrot in order to not arouse suspicion, an act which he greatly resents. As a phoenix, death for him only means to rise again from his own ashes and as such, with effort, can sometimes recall useful information from his 'ancestors.' In an alternate future, Needles was turned into a statue by Set, but this timeline was adverted.
  • Thunder: Conan's willful (but loyal) horse, eventually armed with Star Metal horse shoes. Thunder was stubborn, refusing to enter cities, and threw Conan from his back on more than one occasion rather than enter a city.
  • Zula: Prince of the Wasai, a tribe similar to Sub-Saharan Africans, based from the original Conan literature, may have inspired T. J. Storm's character Bayu in the live series, who is a different but similar person. He is the first ally Conan makes in the show, when Conan is captured and enslaved, alongside Zula and other captives. He and Zula start a slave rebellion and free the other slaves. Zula makes Conan his blood brother. Zula's cousin Gora was a spy for Wrath-Amon, and secretly tricked Zula into the ambush where he was captured by Wrath-Amon's slavers so he could inherit the throne instead of Zula (ironically, by making Conan his blood brother, Zula made Gora third in the line of succession). Gora schemed against Conan and his friends, and was eventually discovered and captured. Zula was a master of the sign of Jhebbal-Sag, which allowed him to communicate with beasts and persuade them to aid him. Originally armed with Star Metal bolos, he reforged them into a boomerang because the bolos tangled. They would return on command thanks to Jezmine.
  • Jezmine (voiced by Janyse Jaud): An agile circus performer who possesses a set of Star Metal throwing stars, her character was possibly based on Valeria (she started as a thief but became an honest woman for the rest of the series but is in love with Conan nonetheless) especially where the first point is that Conan and Jezmine are seen climbing a tower where Jezmine attempts to steal some priceless treasures. Her parents are later revealed to be a nobleman and woman in the city of Tarantia. To her horror, she learns that her mother serves Wrath-Amon and her father is the serpent man Astivus, making her a half-breed. From that moment, she is terrified her Serpent-Man heritage will assert itself. When her father Astivus, who loved Jezmine's mother, sides with Jezmine and her mother against Wrath-Amon, Wrath-Amon banishes her father and mother to the Abyss. A magical potion applied to her Star Metal shuriken allow Jezmine to magically summon the throwing stars to return to her. She shared this potion with Zula. Jezmine hated Astivus, despite his love for her. She and Conan were able to free her mother during a trip to the Abyss, and later Astivus escaped when Set and the Serpent-Men banished over the years were freed from the Abyss by Wrath-Amon. Once again, Astivus chose Jezmine and her mother over serving Set, and it is implied in the final episode that Jezmine might be willing to reconcile with him. Unlike Valeria, Wrath-Amon doesn't kill her.
  • Greywolf (voiced by Scott McNeil): A wizard from the magical city of Xanthus. Originally armed with a bare staff, he was given the mystical "Claw of Heaven" made of Star Metal that was mounted atop his staff and effectively doubled his magical power (as stated on a couple occasions). His brother and sister were transformed into werewolves in a plot by the Stygian queen and sorceress, Mesmira. As a result, he consistently seeks a cure for their condition alongside of Conan. In the finale, he isn't able to turn his siblings back to normal, though he did manage to give them a small sampling of the cure that causes them to revert to human form once per month (on a full moon). The inability to completely cure his siblings remains as a plot dangler which never even happened in the sequel Conan and The Young Warriors which is somewhat similar to the events of Conan the Destroyer.
    • Sasha & Meesha: Greywolf's older brother and sister, transformed into wolves by Mesmira. During one episode, a single flower was found that could transform one of the siblings back into a human. Not wanting to have to choose, the flower was split down the middle each eating half, giving them the ability to resume human form once per month, on a full moon. In only one other episode did the siblings appear as humans.
  • Falkenar (voiced by Alec Willows): Champion of the kingdom of Kusan, he the uses the "Mantle of Wind" to fly, and is armed with a Star Metal whip. He and Windfang are bitter enemies through repeated attempts by the villain to invade Kusan. He has a female falcon named Stormclaw. He is the only character who is not featured in the logo
  • Snagg: (voiced by Gary Chalk) - A Viking-like barbarian (as strong as Conan) from Vanirmen tribe, which lives at the sea shore. Snagg likes to travel by water. He often quarrels with Conan, because they grew up in neighboring countries with different culture. Once even a war happened between them. Despite it Snagg and Conan are true friends. Snagg also has Star Metal weapon - axe and grapnel. Later he gave his grapnel to make Star Metal horseshoes for Thunder, when Thunder saved his life. Conan and Snagg start as rivals, but become increasingly friendly. They continue to compete with and insult each other, but it becomes jovial and good-natured. Snagg and Conan are very similar, though Snagg is generally less serious and controlled.
  • The Kari Dragon: The only dragon character in the series, the Kari Dragon was once imprisoned in an artifact and could be summoned to do the bidding of mortal men. Conan summoned him and granted him freedom, for which the dragon was grateful, however, when Conan later came to him for aid, the dragon gave him a series of tests, which Conan passed. When the final battle against Set came, the dragon battled Set to provide Conan with enough time to escape Set and his minions.
  • Epimetrius the Sage (voiced by Jim Byrnes): Leader of wizards that banished Set to the Abyss thousands of years ago. His ghost is Conan's guide in his quest against Wrath-amon and to free his parents. He presents Conan his shield and companion Needle and on a few occasions aids Conan in his adventures.

Villains

  • Set: The evil Serpent Demon and leader of the serpent men as well as the Snake Cult. He is a giant cobra with mystical powers but he only has one head unlike the usual representation from Marvel Comics. He planned to enslave the human race, deceived many into his cult and as punishment, he was locked away into the Abyss for that offense by the Elders. He gives orders to the Snake Cult's high priest to give him the Star Metal, to build seven pyramids to release him. He returns in the finale to wreak havoc only to be banished once again thanks to the combined efforts of Conan, his friends and a surprise guest who turns out to be his sworn enemy. Conan and his friends sent him off with the Star Metal weapons. He was locked away for good.

The Snake Cult

The Snake Cult is an evil religion that worships Set and lures away victims, even rulers who fear the wrath of Wrath-Amon (similar to the Conan movie). Wrath-Amon preaches the wicked religion of Set and so did the sorcerer Ram-Amon before him. Their quest is to set their god free from the Abyss. Unlike in the movie versions, the only brutality the Snake Cult is revealed to do are kill people and enslave them, with less violence, although it's safe to assume that they also eat human beings but isn't shown.

  • Wrath-Amon (voiced by Scott McNeil): The evil sorcerer who currently leads the Snake Cult and the archenemy of Conan. He was originally large gila monster who was changed into a serpent man who overthrew his own master Ram-Amon, the previous leader of the Snake Cult, after taking his Black Ring and now has the mission to free his god Set with the help of the Star Metal. Conan's grandfather states that his evil is legendary, that he is feared by kings and that he possesses so much power. But he only fears Set who is his deity. He led the attack on Conan's village (but then, Conan had grown man enough, in contrast to the movie where Conan is still a child when it happens where he is supposedly to kill Conan's parents) where he turns Conan's parents into stone instead of killing them like in the original line. At the end of the series, Conan reverts him back into a gila monster after a hot battle before his followers revealing him to be a fraud instead of beheading him, to reduce the violence. Like Thoth-Amon in Conan, he is powerless without his black ring. It was said that if his ring is destroyed, his spell of living stone on Conan's family would be undone. He obviously looks like a serpent man even without being exposed. His long life span may either be because of the Black Ring or his ability to shed his snake skin as most members of the Snake Cult are serpent men.
  • Dregs (voiced by Doug Parker): Wrath Amon's evil Naga assistant. He once became Dregs-Amon when Wrath-Amon was going to undergo hibernation. He quickly changed his loyalties when Wrath Amon was defeated, and served under Ram Amon. He was crushed by a large statue in the final episode, but it is not revealed if he survived.
  • Skulkur: One of Wrath-Amon's henchmen. A powerful undead who can raise skeletons as warriors; star-metal would break the spell that animated them. Once a human member of another Snake Cult branch in Africa, where Set is worshipped as Damballah; (it is assumed that they are cannibalistic as well). He helped a man seize the power of the high priest in return for a promise of power, but the new high priest betrayed him. He then swore himself into Wrath-Amon's service, who empowered him with the Black Ring. When he tried to take his revenge, the new high priest who had betrayed him tried to transform him into a zombie slave, but his magic and the Black Ring's magic clashed, and transformed him into the skeletal Skulkur.
  • Windfang: Windfang is a fire breathing four-armed winged dragonoid enslaved by Wrath-Amon. Windfang was once a human general named Venturas from Koth that opposed Wrath-Amon 200 years before the events in the series. His king sent him to invade Stygia, but his men fled from Wrath-Amon's evil sorcery. Venturas fought on, but he was captured and mutated by Wrath-Amon. Being a cruel despot, he then released Windfang who flew to his fiancee whom screamed and reacted with horror upon seeing him. Realizing he had nothing left to live for, he agreed to serve Wrath-Amon in exchange for a promise to transform him back into a human at some point in the future (a promise Wrath-Amon certainly never intended to keep.) He was in love with Jezmine initially because she reminded him of his dead fiancée Lady Mirim, but although she showed him kindness she didn’t love him. Windfang also commands other flying reptilian creatures similar to himself. Windfang often sought to find a way to transform back into a human without Wrath-Amon or to force Wrath-Amon to keep his promise, and made it clear he would not continue in Wrath-Amon's service if he could regain his humanity. He has an eyrie high in the mountains where he keeps trophies of his long lost past and human self. His eyrie was located close to or within the borders of Kusan, the kingdom of Falkenar, and he raided it often, so the two are bitter enemies.
  • Ram-Amon: Wrath Amon's creator and predecessor. A black sorcerer and previous leader of the Snake Cult, probably a member of a forgotten race. After transforming a large lizard into a lizard man, he lost the black ring, claimed by the lizard man, who later became Wrath-Amon. He later replaced Wrath Amon after his defeat by Conan, and escaped following the defeat of Set. Whether or not he is a snakeman still remains to be seen.

Other villains

  • Mesmira (voiced by Kathleen Barr): Mesmira is apparently a member of the Stygian royal family, the evil Queen of Stygia, and a powerful sorceress who battled Conan and company several times. She initially appeared as a visiting sorceress in Xanthus, pretending to be a friendly visitor, before revealing herself as an agent of Wrath-Amon seeking to attack Xanthus. Her further appearances on the show continued in that deceptive vein; she often appeared using her illusion magic to disguise herself, generally as an attractive, seemingly innocent young girl, and typically engaged in subterfuge and deception to further her goals. On several occasions, star metal has failed to have any harmful effect upon her, so she is almost certainly human, indicating that there are human Set worshippers in Stygia, even many who have apparently reached high positions (though it stands to reason that serpentmen and serpentwomen may have interbred with her human ancestors at some point in the past). Despite being a member of the Stygian royal family and the Queen of Stygia, she did not rule Stygia (a position she most certainly strongly desired), as the Black Ring was in Wrath-Amon's possession, and rulership of Stygia apparently depended upon possession of the Black Ring (It is possible that Wrath-Amon's seizure of the ring from Ram-Amon disrupted the process of succession, and it might have passed to her under ordinary circumstances). Although she initially served Wrath-Amon, she hated him, and tried several times to overthrow and kill him in order to seize the Black Ring and rule in his place. Mesmira turned Greywolf's siblings into werewolves; after he acquired the Claw of Heaven (a piece of star metal that greatly increased the power of a wizard who possessed it) and affixed it to his staff, she sought to take his staff to further her power. She found Conan attractive, and openly sought his affection. She hated Jezmine (possibly stemming at least partly from jealousy of her close friendship with Conan and viewing her as a rival for his affections,) and Jezmine despised her right back. Jezmine did not fully trust her even during their initial meeting, before she revealed herself as a villain, and often exhibited suspicion of her when she appeared disguised by illusion as an attractive girl. At the end of the series, after Set's reurn, she assists Conan's friends in infiltrating Stygia to launch an attack upon Wrath-Amon (as she will never rule Stygia if Set conquers the world,) and after Wrath-Amon is defeated, she escapes with the remains of the Black Ring.
  • Gora: Cousin to Zula, a Wasai prince. He was also a sorcerer. He worked as a spy for Wrath-Amon and constantly schemed to eliminate Zula so he'd be the only heir to the thrown. His traps and plans often thwarted by Conan who became second heir throne ahead of Gora, after helping Zula escape a band of slaveholders loyal to Wrath-Amon. After his connection to Wrath-Amon was discovered he was banished from the tribe. In another attempt he produced a spell using voodoo dolls to inflict pain on Conan and Zula. After discovering his totem animal, (the animal that represents the user of the sign of Jabbal Sag), Conan captured Gora and stopped the spell from becoming permanent.
  • Yin Doo: A warlord who was exiled from Kusan for his evil deeds. He often teams up with Windfang in his various plots.

Others

There are references to other unseen beings which are never seen in the series. They are possibly deities (except Crom, although he was a deity in Conan the Barbarian)

  • Crom: The guardian Spirit of the tribe of Conan in Cimmeria. In Conan the Barbarian he was a Deity of the earth and asked the recently dead before they entered Valhalla the secret of steel. In this series we learn that he fervantly believes in freedom of men when Conan is offered a chance to a rule a city and its slaves which he outright refuses.
  • Mitra: Another being we aren't shown, though he/she/it has priests. In the series finale it is revealed that he/she/it has paladins and we see one of this being's priests marry a couple.
  • Kraken: Mentioned by a pirate in an episode of Conan. It stands to reason this is a sea deity as the Kraken was a mythical creature of the sea in Greek Mythology.
  • Woden: The guardian Spirit of the Venirmen Tribe.

Nations, Tribes, and Groups

  • Cimmerians: Conan is a Cimmerian, a tribe that tends Animals in the mountains and valleys. Despite being called barbarians, they settlements and do not invade other towns when not at war. Barbarian is likely a reference to their relative primitiveness; they have villages, but not large towns, wear little clothing, paint their bodies for war, and are largely warriors. They are descended from the Atlantians. Their chief, and possibly only, deity is Crom.
  • Wasai: The Wasai are a large, powerful and wealthy tribe, of whom Zula is a prince. The Wasai are African and live in the jungle.
  • Vanirmen: The Vanirmen, including Snagg, are a barbarian tribe almost completely analogous to Vikings, except that they are not pillagers. They serve a God called "Woden", an obvious reference to the Norse deity Oden. They are a seafaring and fishing tribe, who's organization and outlook is similar to the Cimmerians.
  • Picts The Picts are an extremely primitive tribe who paint their bodies. They are similar to the Picts of Scotland, in the name, painting, and habit of pillaging other towns, though they live in or near the jungle. Nearby tribes and nations tend to fear the Picts.
