Cat's that aren't blue.

Wrong Avatar.

Catatar, the Last Furbender.

Oh man, this 80s cartoon series designed to sell toys has totally sold out!
Corpus Delectable - 2011-02-26
Needs a line of Thundercat-themed adult toys for furries.

I never understood Snarf. Is he a pet? is he just a less evolved form of thundercat?

Also Lion-o looks like he's 14, and where's Mumm-ra!

Just going by the trailer... looks like a prequel.

Agent #1 - 2011-02-26
If you remember the pilot which I'M SURE EVERYONE DOES you would know that Lion-O started the series as a child, and it was only because his suspension capsule malfunctioned and did not stop his aging but instead only slowed it, that he was left with the mind of a child in the body of an adult.

Duder, the only thing I remember from the pilot is that the cheetah chick didn't wear a shirt in it.

augias - 2011-02-27
She didn't have rockin tits last time either. Five for sexualizing everything.

Rape Van Winkle - 2011-02-27
Mumm-ra at 0:16, fucko.

phalsebob - 2011-02-27
augias... it was a different time. People just liked smaller tits on cats back then.

Caminante Nocturno - 2011-02-26
So when are we going to see the remake of Rainbow Brite where she's a beam-firing, Nanoha-esque magical girl?

I'd like to see that.
duck&cover - 2011-02-26
I thought they were going to be in a rock band, with Snarf as their manager.
Jet Bin Fever - 2011-02-27
We're Panthro and the Thundercaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatss!

RomancingTrain - 2011-02-26
This looks so much better than the original.
voodoo_pork - 2011-02-27
The book was better.

Rape Van Winkle - 2011-02-27
Thundercats should be read on the original cuneiform tablets.

pressed peanut sweepings - 2011-02-26
Thundercats sucked and it will suck once more.
fluffy - 2011-02-27
Yes, this, exactly.

Riskbreaker - 2011-02-27
Nice animation, lets see how the plot goes.
StanleyPain - 2011-02-27
I have no special respect or love for the original Thundercats, but ANOTHER fucking anime-esque "edgy" revamp? Christ....
Shoebox Joe - 2011-02-27
"Snarf"? More like "Barf"!

I don't think there is a good future. The trailer looks great, but if they're doing what I think they're doing, they're going to waste this show on pointless fucking exposition of the homeworld plus whatever drama they can get out of it.

Seriously, I was just watching an episode of Avatar and the ex-antogonist now comrade got disheaveled because he was told "if we're a team then we must hug each other."

I seriously fucking hate it when shows try to act as if plot canon = enviroment.

themilkshark - 2011-02-27
I will be watching this, it looks almost as cool as Swat Kats.
Rape Van Winkle - 2011-02-27
I hope it's not on opposite Samurai Pizza Cats.

kingarthur - 2011-02-27
What, no Panthro? Thundercats are keepin' the brothers down.
Shoebox Joe - 2011-02-27
That's because the animation isn't being outsourced. Or maybe it is.

I no longer regret laughing at Ching Chong Wing Wong!

Shoebox Joe - 2011-02-27
Aw shit, that's the Chinese. My bad you guys.

But still, fuck you Japan and your foot print on American culture.

Zhou Fang - 2011-02-27
WHAT no BoboBerbils!?!?!

I remember the pitch for this from a couple of years back. It involved them living in LA and playing in a rock band. I really wish they went through with that.

fatatty - 2011-02-27

They should've killed off Snarf when they had the chance. I'm guessing they don't have those stupid robots anymore though, that's a plus.

Dirty Sanchez - 2011-02-27
Hopefully Tigra will actually do something in this series.

"If it's not like Yu-Gi-Oh!, kids won't watch it!"

Modern animation has perfected panning dullness.
