    Thundercats!

    Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C’s use of the Japanese animated artistry of anime, “ThunderCats” characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.

    The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.

    “ThunderCats” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”). Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”) are the producers.

    Could is suck as bad as the original? I don't think we're even close to the suckularity.

    I'm sure it will suck, but I'll check it out none-the-less. It can't be Anderhack bad, can it?

    Well, I'm not Thundercats Purist so I'm sure this new cartoon won't personally offend me. :)

    I didn't mean that it would suck because it deviated so far from the source material that it will be unrecognizable. I meant it will suck in a vacuum; sucking for the mere fact that it will suck.

    I'm sure shit like Thundar the Barbarian and the live-action Laff-A-Lympics are not far behind in the development pipeline. :roll:

    Fuck. :shock:

    I wonder if that "O" is really ou 王 meaning "king"? Would make the one character "Prince Lion-King". :doh:

    (Is this just an English redo of an original Japanese thing? It kinda sounds familiar for some reason. But then I have this well-honed stupidsense that generally steers me away from dumb shit.... :think: )

    (And, yeah, I was thinking this has already collapsed well within the Anderson Radius and achieved naked suckularity.)

    Chig, this is a remake of a '80s kids show. Though I'm clearly not in the target audience, there is a nostalgia factor that I can't deny. Heck, the first time I visited a cave when I was on vacation in Arizona my dad and I referred to the cave as "The Cave of Time" from the show (I had just turned 4).

    I will say this, though. I hope Snarf dies a horrible, horrible death. Anyone wanna takes bets on whether or not the pilot for the remake has naked Thundercats? :shifty: What? The original did.

    i watched some episodes of the old series not so long ago and two things

    one Snarf must die in a fire or something painful; on this I agree

    two watching old shows from your youth is not always a good idea

    and three Chig and Rider are old :p

    It seemed implied.

    I think HKP might be in the works, seems like there's been a lot of him about... Till then, this stuff makes me laugh. Why oh why was it cancelled?
    My favorite bit from Grape Ape was when a canary was bullying the pet shop and GA threatened to put salt on his tail so he couldn't fly. The canary told him that it was just an old wives tale and didn't work, so the Ape dropped a twenty lb. bag of salt on him. :lol:

    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    I just threw in the Tick as an example of cartoon-to-live action silliness... And I think it's funny.
