Ariel was boner fuel.

Thundarr the Barbarian follows the eponymous Thundarr and his friends across a post-apocalyptic Earth. The show was made by Ruby-Spears Productions in 1980, and had comics legend Jack Kirby help with the design of the show. Though ostensibly a children's show, the writers aimed it at slightly older audiences. Despite its popularity, the show was canceled after two seasons in 1981.

The stories revolve around the trio of Thundarr, Ariel and Ookla, as they make their way through this world, defeating evil wherever they may find it, their motivation being that they themselves recently escaped the clutches of the vile sorcerer Sabien, Ariel's evil stepfather.

Gary Marshall

It's hard not to wonder if Thundarr was canceled due to its more mature take on animated fantasy. That may well have been part of it, but there was an even bigger factor in play: Garry Marshall wanted its slot. Marshall oversaw ABC's three biggest shows, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy – what he wanted, the network worked to give him. Marshall wanted animated versions of his shows, to cover every audience. To make room for Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, Thundarr was kicked from the airwaves.
