Oh for the love of God, why does July 29th have to be so far away?!

oh I know the feeling. My heart sank when they announced the 29th. the 80's show was awesome, but like most 80's western toons, it felt stilted and wooden at times. lets see what this one does. By the way, cant wait til they introduce Begali and Pantro.

Pantro will probably get a rabid cheering by the fandom like Yoda did in Episode 2 when he went monkey lightsaber on Dooku. /endgeek

Has anyone seen the fan-made 'live action' clip?  They took bits from movies like Thor, Chronicles of Riddick, Farscape, and Stargate, and stitched them together into a rather well-done faux-trailer.

Theres only a few cartoons I've liked enough to watch a few seasons in, and any I try always end up getting held to the standards of either Justice League Unlimited, or X-Men Evolution. Thundercats I haven't tried, because I really don't mesh with the 80's period cartoons so well... they're just so jarring and campy :/

If this is a remake or a revamp, will definitely check it out.

It's not a remake in the sense of taking the old story and updating it.  This is taking the characters from the original story and showing them in another time-frame (like the new Voltron series is taking place after the original Lions version while the original pilots are still alive).  In this case, the writers are exploring what happened before the events in the '80s series.

Yeah, it actually is a remake.

Apparently, the story will focus on 2 planets at most, and is going to streamline the story from the original while also making it darker and edgier. (Such as *Gasp* Slavery? On third earth?! OH THE MORALITY!) and..stuff.

Fights to the Death and all that.

Darker and Edgier indeed..not that that's a bad thing.

A few things have changed, too, like Lion-O and Tygra being Brothers, with Tygra being the older brother. Lion-O, however, is the one to succeed the throne, so they have a sibling rivalry thing going on.

So... its a dark gritty reboot. We're seriously guna be making dark gritty reboots for all the 80's action cartoons? Hell, I'll still watch the ones that interest me, but thats kind of worrying in the long run... it could get to the point where my future kids have no shows of their own, just reheated leftovers.

personally, I think its a step up in 80's cartoons if they get a bit of grit in their reboot.
Its like the cartoons are ''growing up'' with us.

I remember GI Joe with some of its huge battles and *everyone* survived. It just seemed odd that a covert organization
had as much pull and hardware as a developed European nation.

And I know a lot of you will roll eyes at Anime, but I think the Japanese influence is probably the best thing to happen to western animation. I remember around '89 or '90 when I saw my first episode of Robotech and just how ''FREAKING AWESOME'' it was to everything but Transformers. Later I saw Akira and my eight year old mind exploded from the awesome. :P

I mean shoot until the mid 90s you had some pretty campy toons and Western views treated cartoons as just kids stuff. The Japanese made it cool to like toons with grown up stories and grown up tastes.

oh dont get me wrong, oniya. my parents had a s**t-fit when they found the box. kinda weird though >.> they didnt really care what I watched, but some things pushed buttons I guess. Shoot, I remember watching Rambo III regligiously and Dad didnt care. They poo-pooed Heavy Metal (understandibly) when I got older. Maybe it was just that Akira was so 'out there' or they didnt watch it first or something I dunno.

parents are weird, but Im in my late 20's now so I dont have to listen to them much about my personal tastes anymore.

thread hijacking aside, they've made a Rambo 4 as well.

First Blood was in western washington. He was a vagrant that went ballistic when some dirty cops roughed him up.
Rambo II had him back in Laos and Cambodia to rescue some POWs that'd been there since the end of Vietnam.
Rambo III he rescues Col. Campbell from the Russians and he helps the Afghanis fight their guerilla war with the Russians (I know wtf right?)
Rambo IV he is back in Laos and Cambodia as a guide for some missionaries that want to help the people, but its like Injuns and Cowboys. There is little law beyond the gun. I sum this up as 'Rambo vs. the Brown People, Grindhouse-Style'. Seriously he f**ks em up hardcore. Like pick a dude up for a choke slam, but rips his throat out bare-handed, instead.

There have been... talks... of Rambo V. Where he goes up against something like a Predator.... yea... I stopped listening after that rumer too.

anyway, back to Thunda Catz woo! Cheetara! No one spins around the pole like you do! (haha double enteandre)

I remember a VH1 show called 'I Love the 80s' and someone on there commented that "if all animals looked like Cheetara, then bestiality wouldn't be frowned on"...that always makes me chuckle a little.

Anyway, I'm usually happy for reboots/remakes of shows. It's interesting to see what they are going to do with the story.

I'm probably the last person to have any say in remakes/reboots... I've gone through all 19 seasons of Power Rangers, which for the most part is pretty formulaic, and my knee jerk reaction to dark revamping is "Wow, cool!" I only start to change my opinion after I've read a few comments along the lines of "Wow, that's what the setting needed... Jamaican med-school-drop-out Baraka"

*cries* They turned Snarf into a pet... a Pokemon. From moral bringer and voice of reason to common house hold pet.

And they totally brutalized the other characters, too. Cheetara the whore. X| Panthro the even more racist than before, black panther. Liono the emo who wants to "Protect and Save everyone, even the beast men." Ugh... he's an angsty teen! I don't remember that from the original Thunder Cats, at all.

Why am I the only one who looks at this and goes "No! Stop raping my childhood!"

I mean, I will admit that some of it is neat.. but I think I'm having real trouble getting past the characters, here.

Dare to compare :P

Jet from Cowboy Bebop on left and supposedly new Panthro for CN's Thundercats.
I didnt even realize it but even the scar on the left eye is there, hah.



Just take it with a grain of salt, DRok. Its a revision of a popular show. I know that not everyone is going to be gungho about it, but personally, Im glad they are treating it with the attention it deserves. This animation is crisp and clean and they really are trying to bring out the essence of the characters, as well as putting their own spin on them.

Even just the 9minute leak, this show blows a lot of japanese cartoons out of the water. ESPECIALLY the collectible game shows like Pokemon, Yugioh, bay blades, I cant stand those shows with such toy traps involved. Its like a 30minute play-by-play of the game it pitches.

It may be your thing, but I am absolutely GLAD Snarf cant talk. He still has the moral-reasoning there in the 5 or 6 seconds he was tugging on Liono's cloak, and I can stomach that over him whining constantly and Teret'ing his own name.

Actually, she's apparently a Royal Guard.  Besides, it's not like she wasn't already oozing sex appeal in the original series. :P



ESPECIALLY the collectible game shows like Pokemon, Yugioh, bay blades, I cant stand those shows with such toy traps involved. Its like a 30minute play-by-play of the game it pitches.

In my experience, Beyblade typically has absolutely nothing in common with the toys it's trying to sell.  The anime basically takes an otherwise-unremarkable spinning battle top game and adds bizarre special attacks and magical spirit beasts into the equation.  It's a bit like DBZ, only with convenient arenas strewn about all over the place and nobody ever spends an entire episode just powering up. ^^;

Granted, it's still not really worth watching, especially since the hero of the latest series has no personality beyond being your typical shonen cliche...

How about "Animated"? The one with Isaac and Sari Sumdac and Capt. Fanzone? It was on CN a while ago.
I thought it was kinda cool and the 3 season run was short and sweet. Still a few loopholes to tie-up, but for the most part, pretty good.
I thought it was an interesting take on Optimus, being more of a rookie this time around compared to others as the knowing and fatherly commander.

But yeah, I really enjoyed Animated, myself. ^^ I kinda wish it hadn't ended so soon, but I guess Hasbro already had their own plans in the works during that third season...

The TMNT remake series in 2003 was good. Better than the original and a heck of a lot better than the live-action series. At least it was better till they did the whole 'Fast Forward' thing. Though looking at the voice cast for the 2012 reboot for TMNT has me losing hope in it.

Even though Batman Beyond is more of a continuity than a remake, I thought that was really good too.

Reboots aren't always bad...more so when the original material is kind of corny. I'm watching the original show for Thundercats right now, and honestly, it's not like they could do much worse with it.

yea... "in disguise" and "cybertron"... yea we dont talk about those.

How about "Animated"? The one with Isaac and Sari Sumdac and Capt. Fanzone? It was on CN a while ago.
I thought it was kinda cool and the 3 season run was short and sweet. Still a few loopholes to tie-up, but for the most part, pretty good.
I thought it was an interesting take on Optimus, being more of a rookie this time around compared to others as the knowing and fatherly commander.


I enjoyed the hell out of Animated. The designs weren't too out there, and the way they referenced/homaged previous Transformers canon (The Starscream clones being colored like other Seekers, use of G1 stock footage as "archival film", etc.) was done exceptionally well.

It did have its own comic series tied into the show, and as such, the DCAU as a whole. It seemed to me that Beyond got more exposure to the wider DCAU than Static Shock did.

True John was a little more rough than Hal or Kyle, though not as much as Guy; but that doesn't give them the excuse of screwing with continuity. Thanks to that I had a ton of people tell me that they're using the wrong person for the Green Lantern movie and that it should be a black guy. Better suited for more drama? Dude Hal: watched the destruction of his whole city, became an evil entity and almost destroyed the Earth, freed himself and crawled his way back to being the greatest Lantern of all, and beat the shit out of The Blackest Night. As for Kyle he watched two of his girlfriends die, went through not being their for his mother while she was on her death bed, and went through the stress and drama of being both the last Green Lantern in the universe and being Ion. So I think they picked the wrong GL to use.

The cats seem more "We're better than you. We have the power. Piss off"...but hopefully that will change once things move along some more. They all just seem so damn cocky, except Lion-O and the twins.

Love the twin. Such cute, sneaky kittens!

I'm a little upset about Panthro.

Overall, I'll have to see the whole episode and likely a few more after to decide whether I really like it or not. It's pretty good so far. The story seems much more put together than the original. I like how Thundara is a city on Third Earth and that Mum-Ra is a known (even if some believe fake) evil rather than just someone they happen to run into.

I like the way the lizards snuck in an infiltrating force, and they placed a bunch of beacons on high-value targets for artillery to lob missiles at. ^^ It was a nice tactical move, even if they have enough of a technological advantage to just blow the walls down.

Two he is drawn this time on all fours instead of him constantly being up on two, this adds to the cuteness factor.

Yeah, from someone who loved this show as a kid, I was surprised how far they deviated form the original story. What surprised me even more is how well they pulled it off, I thought that the voice portrayal was good. It was good to here Will Friedel's voice again, he did a good Lion-O. Also a nice cameo by Larry Kenny, the original Lion-O, as Claudius. The art style I thought was good, certainly a style I have yet to see. Though the action came a little faster than I had anticipated, but still all in all a good revival of this classic franchise.

It's not a remake in the sense of taking the old story and updating it.  This is taking the characters from the original story and showing them in another time-frame (like the new Voltron series is taking place after the original Lions version while the original pilots are still alive).  In this case, the writers are exploring what happened before the events in the '80s series.
Actually, having now seen the first two episodes, it's taking place on Third Earth, and the Cat's won a battle against Mumm-ra.  So IF I'm remembering rightly, the original T-cats first met Mumm-ra on Third Earth.

So in a way, it's more like a sequel than a prequel with the old characters moved forward in the story.

[Edit]Actually, now that look at the episode, it's taking a lot of queues from the comic series that came out during the early 2000's.  A lot of things are direct parallels or just reinterpreted for TV.

Cartoon Network is so f*cking stupid. :/

Seriously, they have the greatest show of all time...and they aren't showing f*cking reruns of it.

AT ALL

Which means because of work, I've missed not on the premier, but I'll also miss every. Single. Episode.

..FML. >_<

Do you have any way of recording it, Wolfy? DVR or VCR? Or maybe a friend that could DVR it or record it for you?

You can torrent it.  I don't have cable, and that's how I'm seeing it. Of course, I keep for like an hour of watching and then delete them.

To be fair, it was pretty dark at the time.  The probably didn't see enough to identify him, and didn't put it together from seeing him fight with those nunchucks because they thought he was dead.

Anyone else guessing next week's episode is going to involve trust issues between Panthro and the rest of the group?

I think I have the plot frame for TC now...

Lion-o is brash in the first 15minutes, is shown the error of his ways in 5minutes, and learns a life lesson and defeated the baddy of the week in the last 10.

Still fun to watch, just a little... formulaic... that the show has followed the same framework for the 4 episodes to date >.>;;

Eh.  It's still being more subtle about it than the original version, at least. ^^; Also, in this particular episode, Lion-O didn't so much learn a lesson as prove himself in Panthro's eyes (eye?).

The inside look at Mumm-ra's lair was pretty cool, though.  Interesting take on his sarcophagus.

Wasn't it the same in the original?

One theory I've heard being thrown around elsewhere is that there are only eight episodes this season, and as a result, the writing team is having to try and jam in as much as possible in the 30 minutes they have each episode.

If that's true, I honestly think they're doing a pretty good job of it...

Finally sitting down to watch last week's episode. I liked the look into Mumm-Ra's new lair. So much better than just a run down pyramid with dust and cobwebs everywhere. Though it does have me wondering about Mumm-Ra's origin. That pyramid is pretty high tech, even though it's nearly empty. I like his new sarcophagus too. It seems more like a high tech prison capsule than a resting place.

Interestingly, the theories I've heard suggest that that's exactly what it is, and that the original Thundercats imprisoned him there at some point after the end of the series.

So...anyone else foresee a future fight between Lion-O and Tygra about Cheetara?

Also, good to know, somewhat, the origins of the Sword/Book and Mumm-Ra.

Episode 7 was neat.  They changed the backstory A LOT.

So, i remember the original version of this show and adored it. I'm a bit apprehensive to try the new and improved version. Is it as bad as most remakes or worth a gander?

All I can say is:  Keep an open mind.  It's definitely more mature than the original.

I like it though.
