For some reason, this was the highest rated episode in Japan.
As we’ve seen, mixing and matching animals is a pretty easy technique to generating an Incidental Monster. Snakes (like the Lion Snake previously featured) with a few other attributes like fur and some horns…and wa-lah, there’s your monster. I kind of like the fact that this one can attack you on land or in the water.
Thundarr is a hilarously straight-forward guy. In one cartoon he jumps off a cliff to attack a monster because it’s the quickest way down. Later he’s riding off to danger and Ariel shouts, “Thundarr, wait!” I believe this is the single most useless sentence in the history of the English language.
