Overlooked TV: CONAN THE ADVENTURER in "The Heart of the Elephant"



Here's the two-part premier of the 1997-98 TV series cobbled together from various (and mostly non-Howardian) incarnations of Conan. This one features a special guest appearance by Mickey Rooney, and a beyond-the-grave appearance by Richard Burton as "the Image of Crom." Roy Thomas is listed as one of several Co-Producers. Hm.

I lasted about five minutes. The most interesting character was the midget, who appeared a few times on SEINFELD.

This TV show can never be overlooked enough for me.

I tried watching it when it came out. I didn't mind Moeller? that much, but the rest of the cast was awful I thought.

Landing with a resounding THUN.

I got lost in the forest.

Yeah, I usually gave all the syndicated hours a shot in those years, but even with some cute women in the guest casts, I don't recall ever getting through an episode of this one or the revived TARZAN of similar vintage.
