samurai jack

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack had a brief run on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2004, but it still has many loyal fans. Tartakovsky has attempted to get a feature film made to finish up the series, but it hasn’t come to fruition thus far.

After watching it, you’ll totally understand the decision from a marketing perspective.
