Thundarr the Barbarian: Win the Complete Series on DVD!

Thundarr the BarbarianThough the animated Thundarr the Barbarian series was only on the air for two seasons and 21 episodes, it’s earned a place in the memories of kids who grew up in the early 1980s.

Thundarr takes place in the year 3994. Civilization on Earth is in ruin after a runaway planet sped between Earth and the moon and unleashed “cosmic destruction.” The planet is divided into territories that are ruled by magic and science. Thundarr (Bob Ridgely), a barbarian, and his friends Ookla the Mok (Henry Corden) and sorceress Princess Ariel (Nellie Bellflower) travel the countryside and use their powers, courage, and wits to liberate enslaved humans and battle mutants, wizards, thieves and robots.

The complete series has just been released on DVD in a four disc set. It sells for $29.95 from the Warner Archive Collection. You can also try to win a copy here.

    I found this on a site about Thundar with interviews from Ken Spears and Joe Ruby about the show.

    Ken Spears: First, let me say that when ABC cancelled Thundarr, we had excellent ratings. And when the news hit the streets, we received hundreds of letters from viewers telling us how much they will miss the show and asking why it was going off the air. Incredibly, many of the letters were signed by entire school classes! Literally hundreds of fans, from grade schools, high schools, and even from prestigious universities like Stanford were writing in! Without a doubt, Thundarr had a huge teenage and adult following. Unfortunately, NBC only wanted the show for re-run purposes, feeling the show was so strong that the viewers would watch the originals over and over again.
