Iconic Cartoon Series ThunderCats Returns
“Thunder…. thunder, thundercats, ho!” no misogyny We all remember the emphatic cry of the ThunderCats as the cartoon series burst onto the scene in the 1980s and stayed around long enough for most 90s babies (like myself) to get hooked. In a move that shouldn’t shock many (with the entertainment industry getting lazier and less creative), the heroic feline-esque troupe is set to make a return to the small screen.
Judging by the look of the characters, this series will take place a number of years before the original series started, further showing the planet of Thundera and the development of young Lion-O. Most of your favorite characters, then, are back but have been given face lifts.
We’re not sure how we feel about the new looks (seriously, what’s Lion-O without the long, red locks?) and the animators and writers have big shoes to fill. As a young nerd who grew up on the ThunderCats and shows like it, they better do it justice or save us all the trouble.
The new ThunderCats will make its debut on July 29.
