Samurai Jack was a prince in Feudal Japan before being flung forward in time by the evil sorcerer Aku. Now trapped in the distant future, Jack wanders the universe searching for a way back to his own time. Along the way he encounters strange creatures and peoples, often representatives of ancient myth and legend, including the 300 Spartans.

Created by Genndy Tartakovsky, the show is known for its fast paced fights and distinctive line-free animation style. The shows often takes a cinematic scope, with vast, beautiful backgrounds and slow moments of little dialog, but with striking visuals.

The show is currently available on DVD, though a movie is said to be in production for a 2009 release. Strangely, the DVD sets have yet to be relased in the UK. Odd
Season 1
Season 2
Season 3
Season 4

The show's art direction was simple outstanding, with vivid use of color and composition:

    Long ago, in a distant land... I, Aku, the shape-shifting master of darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me.

    Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!

    The best episode is the one where Aku
    Tries to make the kids worship him and fear him but they start interrupting making these kick ass stories of Jack and the fat kid made the best story and it was so good.

    EDIT: Also itt wiggin is wiggin
