Although the pilot was heavily hyped by Creator/CartoonNetwork as part of its Creator/AdultSwim lineup and received a positive response from the fans, the network played an extended WillTheyOrWontThey game, complete with rumors flying about them picking the show up and starting a series before the project died a quiet death. On November 2, 2013, ''Korgoth of Barbaria'' was aired on AdultSwim's revived {{Toonami}} block as Daylight Savings Time filler, along with ''WesternAnimation/KingStarKing'' and ''Kick-Heart''.

[[caption-width-right:350:This is Korgoth... when he found out that Creator/AdultSwim [[{{ExecutiveMeddling}} had cancelled his show]].]]

A classic example of WhatCouldHaveBeen, ''Korgoth of Barbaria'' is a pilot that falls somewhere between being a parody and deconstruction of the BarbarianHero, (especially ConanTheBarbarian) with a lot of BlackComedy thrown in. The result didn't just cross over the line, [[CrossesTheLineTwice it continually played hopscotch going back and forth over it]].

The show begins with a group of mooks looking for Korgoth, and having been informed that he will be visitng a certain tavern as he passes through town, they head there. They attempt to approach him, but a combination of misunderstanding and the leader of the group being a massive jerkass results in Korgoth killing most of them before they manage to convince him to hear their master's offer of employment. Their boss turns out to be Gogmagog, a criminal kingpin Korgoth has had a falling out with after their partnership went bad in the past. Gogmagog wants the Golden Goblin, a ancient figure of mystery, which has long been in keeping of a wizard called Specules. Specules seems to have abruptly vanished and left his tower unprotected, leaving Gogmagog to believe the wizard is dead and the Goblin is ripe for the taking, as long as Gogmagog can beat any other interested parties to it.

*** This entire scene CrossesTheLineTwice, because after each action, the guy screams and the shots cut around to other people in the bar also screaming at the horror (some of whom have already suffered horribly at Korgoths hands). EACH TIME.

*** To top it all off, aside from clear initial surprise upon his 'landing', she just sort of stands there leaning against the counter in mild bemusement, even as he screams/motorboats.

* BloodyHilarious: Lots of gore-filled gags, such as a severed arm hitting the exact right button on the jukebox to queue up some Music/HeavyMetal, then the adjacent bar patron giving a thumbs-up.
