This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

  Ordered my son the Thundarr the Barbarian disc set.   He thinks it, and the 80's were amazing.

Interesting. My son found 80's cartoons like the D&D cartoon and GI Joe very underwhelming when I showed them to him, though he never saw Thundarr specifically. His favorites growing up were Looney Toons along with The Tick, Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League - though as a teen his favorite is Steven Universe. I think the comic series hooked him mostly because they were aimed at comics fans, and they didn't do very well with kids who weren't already into comics.

I have not tried the D&D cartoon, he didnt care for GI Joe at all.  Thundarr is more D&D than the D&D cartoon IMO.

Thundarr was a standout among Saturday morning cartoons when it was on the air, and it has aged well. The post-apocalyptic setting helps keep it from seeming dated. Plus, design work from Jack Kirby didn't hurt either.

I also bought the DVDs, and they lived up to my memories of the show. Not many Saturday morning cartoons do. Thundarr, Johnny Quest, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, maybe the two original seasons of Scooby-Doo.
