Theme Song Thursday: Thundarr the Barbarian

thundarr-the-barbarian

After our recent venture into the land of Popples, Sean thought we had to up the macho factor of our next series just a tad. Enter: Thundarr the Barbarian! This early 80s show from Ruby-Spears has a surprising premise in that takes place 2,000 years after the Earth was nearly destroyed (ahem … in 1994). A new world emerges, “a world of savagery, super-science, and sorcery.” Don’t worry, the following intro explains it all for you. As a bonus, we get to watch our own Matt Barron being wiped out by a tidal wave that submerges the Bay Area. Sorry, buddy!
