Those New ThunderCats? Still Loose


I actually have a pal who works on the new ThunderCats cartoon, and last night he sent me an actual, official, not-bootlegged-or-blurry pic from the new show. I figured you guys would want to see a clear pic, and I definitely owed it to him to show ThunderCats right at the first possibility, so…


?I have a few more thoughts:
? As many of you were concerned, Tygra has a whip. But he has a gun too. Unfortunately for Abraxas, the whip handle looks significantly less like a cock-and-balls than it used to.
? I forgot the whole thing about Lion-O being a kid who was somehow turned into an adult in the original cartoon. That always seemed needlessly weird, and it always made me think some executive saw one episode of He-Man and demanded it be forced in (“What? He’s a kid? Kids like that? Well, put it in ThunderCats. I SAID PUT IT IN”). That said, I think Lion-O’s more youthful look is a nod to that, which makes me like it.
? I am assured WilyKit, WilyKat and Snarf are all in the show.
? Many of you have noted that Cheetara looks kind of like a crackwhore. I do not disagree, but feel this makes her hotter for some reason.
