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.

Lurkndog:
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.
