ThunderCats, Ho---ly Shee--! What is THAT?!



Source: Cartoon Network bringing back ThunderCats for new animated series

In 1985 the world was introduced to ThunderCats, the animated adventures of a humanoid feline team on their new home named Third Earth, battling the evil Mutants of Plun-Darr. The show lasted for four seasons and had tie in comics, toys and other collectibles. In 2011, there was a revival of the series and it was actually… decent, but sadly only lasted a single season. There were plans for a second, but it never materialized.

Well, it looks like Cartoon Network is ready to give ThunderCats another go, but it looks like a very different take on our feline heroes. The setting is largely the same, but its a comedic take on the property, a ThunderCats Go, rather than a ThunderCats, Ho.

Here is how the new show is described:

"Staying true to the premise of the original series, Lion-O and the ThunderCats — Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, Wilykat, and Wilykit — barely escape the sudden destruction of their home world, Thundera, only to crash land on the mysterious and exotic planet of Third Earth. Lion-O, the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, attempts to lead the team as they make this planet their new home. A bizarre host of creatures and villains stand in their way, including the evil Mumm-Ra, Third Earth's wicked ruler who will let nothing, including the ThunderCats, stop his tyrannical reign over the planet."

 

Here's a behind-the-scenes featurette for ThunderCats Roar:

The final format for the cartoon has not been revealed. ThunderCats Roar is expected on the network in 2019.

And I thought the new upcoming TMNT cartoon looked like trash.

When I get my hands on a time travel machine, I am going to find out who came up with this current trend for ultra-deformed characters (this, SU, AT, TTG etc) and I am going to go shoot their grandfather in the crotch.

I cannot imagine fans of the original will be at all pleased with this.

According to a friend or two of mine on another forum, the people at "Roar" have already been getting some nasty death threats and the like. And this has made said friends, though dissatisfied with these preliminary as much as anyone, ultimately side with the show.

Here's hoping that before they issue Time Travel Licenses they filter out women with irrational aggressive issues towards men.

Death threats. Yeah, that's a reasonable response.
