Thundarr on DVD

Barbaric News by Mark Evanier revealed, to me at least, that "Thundarr the Barbarian" is finally coming out on DVD. It also notes that these DVDs will frustratingly be without any special features or, necessarily, any revamping.

But I can accept that. It's "Thundarr" on DVD, and that'll do for now.

It does note two other points of frustration, however.

The first is that there apparently exists a screenplay for a "Thundarr" feature by Buzz Dixon, that Evanier describes as "terrific", which I don't doubt at all.

The second is that there had been an effort to re-animate the show that was nixed. It's really too bad that got nixed, as it was an very well-written show with better design than animation, and would be exceptionally well served by such treatment, in a way that not many other shows of its era would be.
