Here is the conclusion of the Thundarr the Barbarian review! And here is a picture that sums up the show for those of you who didn't read the first half.
So having defeated the rat men they continue on to Manhattan-er I mean Manhat! Making their way into the city they head into the subway and the woman of the group tells them about things she had read about the city. Going as far as telling Thundarr about a movie poster!
(remember when places kept hanging up Jaws posters in the nineties?)
Continuing on Ookla the Mok (the big hairy guy) falls on the subway track. Cause since they're in a place they don't understand he must obviously not understand the concept of not walking off ledges.
As they wander through the train tunnel the woman is captured by an evil wizard who threatens to kill her if the others don't give him the black ball. They refuse and the wizard freezes them, but Thundarr is immune to it and not frozen, realizing the black ball makes him immune he turns down the Wizards demand and the wizard leaves. So he's okay with her being killed? Or does he know the wizards full of it? and why'd the wizard blast Thundarr if he new he would be immune? All it did was make him aware of the power he had? They're both idiots!
So now with the girl gone they give up there search of the tunnels and go back to the streets. Why? She was taken down a tunnel when kidnapped! Go down that tunnel! Why are you going back up topside?
Oh I know why! So you can go onto the street and be attacked by the wizards knights in a helicopter! (no seriously that's the only reason they have for leaving the tunnels and yes they're attacked by knights in helicopters!)
They too have lasers!
Which seems like a good idea! Give knights lasers! But as you see in the battle its not a good idea!
They just don't understand how to use projectile weapons favoring getting close to there opponents!
If you're gonna shoot at someone don't run up to point blank range and then fire!
Especially if your still gonna miss!
Thundarr then realizes that the knights are machines! Good cause if they were people I'd have been ashamed!
Hey this knight looks like hes gonna throw his laser at the hairy guy! (Stupid robot, fighting is for humans!)
They then defeat the knights and take their helicopter and head into the sky!
And as they leave we see that they were watched by the inhabitants of the city who did not know if they were friend or foe. The leader of the people is a man with a large brown beard and a lamp shade on his head.
Thundarr makes his way to the wizards base and leaves Ookla the Mok (who can't talk) to fly the helicopter as he jumps on to the wizards penthouse tower and sneaks in to save his friend! Why'd he leave him to fly it alone? This can't be good!
Thundarr fights off the villain! Well actually the girl uses magic to blind the evil wizard as Thundarr cuts the bars on the cage and they make there escape as the wizard stands around complaining of being blinded.
They make their way to a window to get to the helicopter but Ookla the Mok can't fly it over to them and instead he just smashes the control panels and screams then kicks the control panel out the nose of the helicopter causing it to crash.
I knew it was a bad idea to let him fly the helicopter!
So with no helicopter to get on to they jump out the window and land on there horses.
How'd their horses get there? Magic!
They make it back to Manhat and meet up with the inhabitants of the city and the old guy from the beginning. The wizard then makes his appearance and makes the Statue of Liberty come to life and attack our heroes!
The Statue of Liberty uses her torch as a flamethrower and blasts at the heroes! I never thought I'd say that!
The wizard asks one more time for the black ball and Thundarr gets an idea and throws it at the Statue of Liberty and in so doing destroys the black ball and the life of the statue! And with that the wizard leaves in anger.... and what if that hadn't worked? Then the wizard would have had the black ball and the statue would still be a threat! But being a kids show things always work out in the end.
And that concludes my write up on this show. My thoughts on it? Weird. Yup, that's it just: Weird.
