Immediately, no, in the long term, yes... its like if we didn't have Bioshock or Mass Effect, just sequels of Mario and Halo. That'd suck for me :/ nothing to tell my kids about, nothing thats my period.

Oh sabby, you don't have a period anyway.

Did you forget your Gender, love? ;D

...So, anyone want to watch nine minutes of assorted scenes from the first episode?  I have to admit, it looked quite good to me...

I... just... wow...
all those revamps are awesome. I was wondering about snarf... best thing they did was make him not talk.

i still cant get my jaw off the ground...
gonna be suffering lock jaw on the 29th when this show comes out and my jaw is on the floor for an hour.

It certainly does look awesome. ^^ And I wholeheartedly agree with you about Snarf.  It's such an amazing improvement, just not being able to understand what he's saying...

I like the fact that Lion-O's father is voiced by the Original Lion-O voice actor.

*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.

Cheetara the whore. X|

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...

Well, it sounds like you're at least willing to give the new series a chance, and if you end up not liking it, there's nothing forcing you to watch it...

For those that care, the channel Boomerang is showing a mini-marathon of the original Thundercats show today. Starts 12:00pm EST (which is right now) to 4:00pm EST.

*eye twitch*

Why were the original Thundercats nude in the beginning? I don't remember. It's a little creepy. They all look like Ken dolls.

And they will be there, because your mind will make these 'horrible', 'horrible' things happen.

Personally, I LOVE the original series, but this?  This has a LOT of promise, and I'm liking it so far.

Well, I can already approve of three names in the voice cast. Corey Burton as Jaga, Will Friedle as Lion-O, and Clancy Brown as Grune the Destroyer? I'm ok with all of this. That said, my ears must've been on some kind of hallucinogen, because I could've sword Lion-O sounded like Josh Keaton.

There were NO naughty bits.  Ever.  Kinda creepy.

Didn't the original Thundercats meet Mumm-Ra for the first time, in the original series?

It sounds to me this series isn't so much a 'reboot' as a flash forward to the future history of the T-Cats.
