Collapsed Twin Towers
2 February 2011 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Thundarr and the gang are supposed to bring the mighty black pearl somewhere so that the men people can be mighty again and resist evil Groundlings, the rat people. They fight rat people who drive motorcycles (or as Thundarr says motorsteeds) and have laser guns, medieval looking knights also with laser guns. When the rats fail, the wizard Gemini comes and makes the fallen Statue of Liberty alive, and it shoots flames from the torch. Epic fight. Ookla throes cars, breaks helicopters, falls from the top of the Statue of Liberty without being hurt. Ariel makes magic bridges and gets imprisoned. Cool first episode. There's also one scene of collapsed Twin Towers. Funny stuff.
