Thundarr's Princess Ariel Is A Bad Girl Now?

As I mentioned in my last post below, "Thundarr the Barbarian" remains one of the best regarded cartoons of the early 1980s, despite the fact that only 21 episodes were ever produced.

How does that regard manifest itself today? Admittedly very few new "Thundarr" products have been marketed in recent years (though a line of action figures was made), and it is not even available on DVD.

But there does seem to be a booming trade in vaguely fetish-istic images of Thundarr's female companion, Princess Ariel. One example is the painting at left, which was apparently done as a commission.

And a young woman has posted a series of similar photos of herself dressed as Princess Ariel at this link:

Imagine the type of guy she's trying to attract like that....
