Samurai Jack ............................................................................ Phil LaMarr








The story of Samurai Jack had its beginnings in ancient Japan, where the evil, shape-shifting wizard Aku arose from his long imprisonment to wreak destruction upon the land. In his malice, Aku managed to capture the emperor, but the emperor's wife escaped with their son, who she sent away to be rigorously trained throughout the world in all forms of discipline and combat. When the boy returned as an adult, he was given by his mother the enchanted sword of his forefathers - the only weapon capable of defeating Aku. When the young samurai finally confronted Aku he drew upon all of his skill and training and nearly defeated his homeland's ancient enemy, but in a last desperate act Aku ripped open the fabric of time and flung the young samurai into the distant future.


The future, the young warrior found, was a bleak place, segregated into fantastic tribes and ruled by Aku and his evil robot warlords. Dubbed "Jack" by the locals, the displaced samurai used his training and wits to survive as he traveled the foreign landscape in search of another time portal that would return him to his own time in order that he could, "undo the future that is Aku!".


The series was widely recognized for its groundbreaking style, combining a stylized look with minimal dialogue, split-screen visuals, rich backgrounds and pulsating music, making Samurai Jack a true Cartoon Network original.
