21 x 30 minute episodes

Civilisation is cast into ruin in the year 1994 when a runaway planet speeds between the Earth and the Moon, unleashing a cosmic chain reaction that destroys both worlds.

2,000 years later, the Earth is reborn from the ashes with a savage landscape, strange creatures and a primitive sense of justice.


But one man fights to spread peace throughout the land – Thundarr the Barbarian (a slave who broke his bonds) and his companions Ookla the Mok and sorceress Princess Ariel.

The trio journey from village to village using their strength, courage and wits (plus Thundarr’s magical Sunsword) to liberate slaves and battle all kinds of beasts, mutants, wizards, thieves and robots.
