Interesting news. Huge fan of this imaginative post-apocalyptic cartoon series; I remember seeing it as a kid back in the day. IMHO it was one of the few '80's cartoons that still holds up when re-watching it as an adult.

I have the TTB DVD-R set & am satisfied with the PQ here, but do completely realize it could be much better.

So, I may double-dip for this Blu set - as long as the PQ is proven to be superior to that of the DVD-R. Since this is an early '80's cartoon, I'm not sure how much room there is for improvement - and I'll have to see how the remastering looks before I invest in this set.

It should look a lot better. The Flintstones, Space Ghost and Josie and the Pussycats were all huge improvements or the DVD's. The depth of color improvement is very noticeable on all of them and I suspect it will be here as well.

To add to my last post about TTB:

Thundarr was obviously "inspired" to a great extent by Star Wars, Conan the Barbarian, Dungeons & Dragons, the '70's DC comic Kamandi, the Last Boy On Earth, the first two Planet of the Apes films, etc.

It's also worth noting that Thundarr was one of the first sci-fi apocalyptic (PA) TV shows out there, and one of the only cartoons. Though since then we've seen a lot of Post Apocalyptic (PA) TV shows/movies since that time, Thundarr was definitely a fore-runner.

One of the most interesting aspects of the show was seeing Thundarr & his group (Ookla the Mok, Princess Ariel) go to a ruined U.S. city and being able to recognize which one it was; i.e., in one of the first episodes they went to "Manhat", which was obviously Manhattan (with the statue of liberty in the background, the subways, etc.). IIRC, in another episode they went to the ruins of Las Vegas, etc.

The fantasy & sci-fi elements were strong as well. It was interesting to see all of the aliens/mutants & both advanced/primitive tech.
