Storyline

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

Conan knock-off.

Mind you....that isn't a bad thing.

Spice it up with more sci-fi and give him regular companions and we have Thundarr. Which is a cool name by the way.

The apocalyptic intro seems more frightening as a 10-14 year old. (Which I was at the time.) But it sets a great stage. Also the lack of a running story made it a little more fun. However, it also suggests a lack of faith in the project.

This was on a little later in the morning on Saturdays so it was probably aimed at older kids. I didn't see it as much as I'd liked. But it's worth remembering. I'm surprised your comic-con and "cosplay" types don't go here more often. Princess Ariel seems like an American anime at times. Only smart.

Thank you Cartoon Network/Boomerang for bringing it back.
