New Thundercats Trailer!

I loved the original Thundercats as a kid.  Though I remember very little about the actual show, I remember mostly the characters.  Lion-O, Snarf, Mumm-Ra…visually, the show is still a viable property, and, given that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came out after and was rebooted sooner, I’m surprised that this hasn’t happened until now.

Yup, Thundercats is getting rebooted.  And though there have been many changes (for example, the ‘Cats don’t get stranded on another planet), the core concept appears to be the same, and without the hokeyness that dates so many 80’s TV shows.  The animation looks pretty stellar, and it looks like it’s going to take itself seriously, which is nice.  A Thundercats show with a modern sensibility?  Sign me up.

  1. Thank you for posting that link. I just watched it for the first time. I loved it. I do like the fact that they have avoided the “making everything tough, dark and grown-up” route of many shows in the 90s. This is better, very faithful to the 1986 version while avoiding some of the goofy parts. I like that they have limited the “soulless” CGI to the portrayal of the mutants’ big mechs. The cat characters all look great in this one. Much better than the He-Man and TMNT remakes a few years back, I must say. Good material so far.

  2. I wish I’d seen this before Tim’s Savage Saturday Morning game at FtC. It would have improved my protrayal of Lion-O dramatically.
