In the year 1994, a comet hurtles between Earth and the moon. The moon is destroyed, and the Earth loses its ozone layer--causing the entire planet to be laid waste. Centuries later, Earth has become "a world of savagery, super-science, and sorcery," inhabited by various evildoers, scavengers, and magicians. Thundarr, a warrior who wields a powerful sword, is joined by his friends Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel as they make their way through this strange world. Written by Brian Barjenbruch

Thundarr was one of best cartoons that has ever been made. I had to clean up my room every Saturday morning before I could watch it but it was worth it. At 32,I try to let the kids experience the things I grew up with. And they love them.Thank you for the memories and please bring them back.Is there any way these cartoons like Thundarr and the Herculoids be brought back to TV? Can we start a petition to these rolling? I would love my son be opened up to these cartoons I loved so much.Some can teach lessons that can be valuable in life. Remember how conservative Ariel was? How she was so calm in a crisis and Thundarr was so gungho. The love I have for this cartoon is extreme. Thanks for listening.I thought this cartoon was lost to the hands of time.Sometimes I look at the things that is on today and wonder where in the world do they get this stuff. They could teach a thing or two about friendship because they would never leave one another behind and that is #1 rule of being a friend.
