Synopsis by Ryan Shriver

From the ever-fertile mind of Gennedy Tartakovsky -- the creator of Dexter's Laboratory -- comes Samurai Jack, the tale of a young samurai's travels through time and space. The people of an ancient land are being terrorized by an elusive and constantly morphing demon named Aku. Attempting to take a stand against this evil, the locals choose a young man to train as a warrior with the hopes of the young man returning to vanquish Aku. Eventually, the young man does return, but fails in his attempt to banish the demon and is instead cast into a time portal. The samurai -- who picks up the name "Jack" from the first beings he encounters on his odyssey -- thus begins his search for a portal back to his own time, but not without encountering numerous trials and obstacles along the way.
