At WonderCon this year a new trailer was released for the new ThunderCats cartoon series for Cartoon Network.  I’m skeptical when the TV Gods that be reboot anything that I hold near and dear to my heart (I’ll save my rant about Conan for later!) because if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it!  The things that made 1980 cartoons awesome was the lack of CGI and overly complex storylines.  Give me the shoddy picture clarity and corny lines all day because they stir up those wonderful memories of getting up early on Saturday morning and eating Cocoa Puffs in  my She-Ra jammies!

So with that said, I have to admit that this one for Thundercats looks pretty freakin cool and even a die hard Thundercats enthusiast like me can I appreciate what they have going on here!  I just pray that it doesn’t dissapoint!

Check it out and what you do you guys think?

FYI – The TV Gods are good so unfortunately you have to get on Youtube to watch this one!

    Wow! It looks amazing! I can honestly say it raised goosebumps while I was watching it.

    It looks to take place BEFORE the original series. And while the original Thundercats were refugees from Thundera to Third Earth, and had some cool, almost scifi type weapons (Thunder Tank, anyone?)This seems to be an EARLIER technological era. Not quite midieval, but with some of that feel to it.

    I would sooo love to see this!

    @The Muse – I like that they took the angle of doing a prequel as opposed to just recreating the whole series and it does have an ancient realm thing going on that’s pretty cool!

    And yes I remember the Thunder Tank!
