Thundercats-Animated Series


One of my favorite cartoon before was Thundercats, TigerSharks and Silverlight! To my surprise I found out that ThunderCats was revive with the Original Characters, this is a story of Cats like human that protect the Earth from evil Mumra! (Well it’s the usual plot, The Bad Guys can’t seem to defeat the Good Guys)

Now the ThunderCats are back this time at Cartoon Network, you can also check out their official website at ThunderCats


I also found this blog - Official Thundercats Blog if you want to know more about the new ThunderCats Episode and more.


The Characters


lion-oBased on the lion, wields the legendary Sword of Omens, which is able to fire bolts of energy and allows Lion-O to see across great distances with its power of "Sight Beyond Sight", as well as the Claw Shield, a gauntlet that launches grappling lines from its claws. A mere child of twelve years old at the time of Thundera's destruction, Lion-O aged to adulthood during the trip to Third Earth when his suspension capsule failed to prevent him from aging too much. Although cunning and skillful, he is truly a child in a man's body, and throughout the series, must learn what it takes to become a true leader and gain true maturity.

tygraThe character is the adopted older brother of Lion-O. Though unable to succeed his foster father due to having the wrong "bloodline," Tygra was the more favored son. In the premiere, he has shown his invisibility powers as the original version. While he retains his bola whip, he prefers to use a pistol as his main weapon, though despising technology in the beginning. Tygra has confronted Lion-O and questioned his decisions as Lord of the ThunderCats, but remains nonetheless loyal to him; he has also shown a caring side towards his teammates (he was the one who insisted in letting Wilykit and Wilykat join them), and a sarcastic, somehow comic vein.


Cheetara is the sole surviving member of Thundera's cleric warriors other than Jaga. Cheetara is also a counselor to Lion-O, since she never shuns him for his interest in technology and seem to support his kindness to other races that were mistreated. It is shown that Cheetara's superhuman speed is not an ability unique to herself, but an ability possessed by all Thundarian clerics, including Jaga and possibly Lion-O. She has incredible speed, once clocked at 120 m.p.h. on a morning jog. She can maintain this speed only for brief periods, but with it, she is very fast in combat. Her weapon of choice is a bo staff that can grow or shrink to variable lengths. When not in use, it is attached to her left armband.

wlykit and wlykat

younger in age, they are both street urchins and pickpockets with aspirations to find the lost city of El Dara and become rich. When the Reptilians attack Thundera, the two manage to escape during the chaos before eventually teaming up with Lion-O on his journey. In this version, the WilyKit and WilyKat have bushy tails, something none of the adult ThunderCats are shown to possess. They also have some skill at picking locks. They are the mischief-makers, and often have their own lessons to learn alongside Lion-O while they live on Third Earth, where they frequently use tricks and traps to combat evil. Kit is the more adventurous, while the older Kat usually errs on the side of caution. Kit also appears to be the more agile, and at times, she employs a rolling-attack against the enemy

panthroPanthro is one of Claudus' more loyal soldiers who was sent with his friend Grune to find the Book of Omens. Their attempted search resulted with Mumm-Ra's release and Grune betraying Panthro, who while fighting Grune fell down an abyss and seemingly was killed. However, Panthro survived and constructed the Thundertank, which he later used to save Lion-O's group from Slythe's platoon. Though he questioned Lion-O's ability to lead, Panthro eventually accepted him as the new king. Unlike the rest of the Thundercats he never learned how to swim. He is also physically the strongest and is a cunning warrior in combat, relying as much on martial arts as on physical strength. With Tygra’s help, he builds all of the vehicles the ThunderCats use on Third Earth — including the ThunderTank, the Feliner and the ThunderClaw, ThunderStrike, and HoverCat. Panthro is a complex Thundercat. On the one hand he has great passion, love of family, and life. With an infectious laugh, accompanied by a good sense of humor. On the other hand, he is a stone cold warrior. He lives by the ThunderCats warrior code. They respect the king, but fear the panther. In combat, he uses a pair of nunchaku with open-away cat-paws, which house several chemical spray-compounds, and objects such as ball bearings, that he can use against foes. The spikes on his chest bands can be used like projectile weapons or as rappelling lines.


Mumm-Ra is of alien origin and used the advanced technology at his disposal to enslave the ancestors of the ThunderCats and the Animals into serving him so he would gather the Four Warstones to place on the Sword of Plun-Darr, whose design is copied into the Sword of Omens, to become the most powerful being in the universe. But managing to take the fourth Warstone (which would become the Eye of Thundera) while staging a rebellion with the Animals' help, the ThunderCat Leo defeats Mumm-Ra and strips him of the other three stones. But when Mumm-Ra's pyramid spacecraft was pulled into Third Earth's atmosphere, Mumm-Ra entered his tomb to bide his time for everyone else to die in the resulting crash. However, the controls were smashed and Mumm-Ra was trapped within his pyramid as the stones and survivors spread across Third Earth. However, many centuries later, Mumm-Ra used Grune to release him from his prison and masterminded Thundera's downfall. With the aid of Grune and Slythe, Mumm-Ra not only plans to obtain the Eye of Thundera, but to regain the other three Warstones. Changes to Mumm-Ra for the 2011 version include demon wings on his Ever-Living form and having a weakness to intensely bright light.

snarfSnarf is more of a pet to Lion-O and does not speak English but can make animal sounds (though it seems Lion-O can still understand him)
