Samurai Jack was the original role model. Unlike every other cartoon that exists, he has no external power that makes him superhuman. His power comes from his inner strength and physical training and development. He trained around the world under great warriors and wise men.
This particular cartoon immerses the viewer in an empathetic way using exquisite drawings, excellent sound effects and theme songs all to match the emotions and feelings that Jack would feel concurrently.
Pay particular attention to listening as there are sounds present that imitate what a trained samurai, shaolin disciple would be aware of.
