Noel Thingvall, David May, and Michael May explore the episodes and cities of the Thundarr the Barbarian cartoon in geographical order: not as episodes were produced or aired, but as Thundarr, Ariel, and Ookla would have traveled.
Episode 8: Master of the Stolen Sunsword
David, Michael, and Noel are back, but Thundarr, Ariel, and Ookla have not yet moved on from the Los Angeles area. They're in Beverly Hills, dealing with a wizard named Yando as well as Thundarr's diminished connection to the Sunsword.
Episode 7: Fortress of Fear
Still in Los Angeles, Thundarr, Ariel, and Ookla encounter slaves that need freeing from possibly the most powerful wizard our heroes have encountered yet. Celebrate the freedom in this freedom-packed episode of freedom.
Episode 6: Valley of the Man-Apes
Heading south along the California coast, Thundarr and Friends reach the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood where they encounter talking apes who are gathering pieces of a secret (but familiar-looking) weapon to use in their war against a beleaguered city of little people. Noel, David, and Michael discuss the homage-heavy episode and whether it lives up to their hopes for it.
Episode 5: Battle of the Barbarians
Thundarr and friends travel to San Francisco's Chinatown where they encounter an evil wizard who hires a barbarian warrior to fight Thundarr. Is the showdown everything we hoped it would be? David, Michael, and Noel talk that out alongside discussions of Chinese stereotypes, the appropriateness of dragons, and the best way to escape a slime pit.
Episode 4: Stalker from the Stars
Michael, David, and Noel try to figure out just where Thundarr, Ariel, and Ookla have traveled to. With only a couple of clues to guide them, the fellas have come up with different answers, talking that through before getting to the business at hand involving an ice cavern amusement park, a deadly alien, and a very sick Mok.
Interview with Thundarr writer Buzz Dixon, Part 2
We'll be back on the Road soon with the next recap, but until then, enjoy the second part of our interview with writer Buzz Dixon. Noel talks with Buzz about life after Thundarr with special focus on GI Joe. It's another great conversation with great, new stories that you won't want to miss.
