Thundercats – Cancelled???!??

A day after TNI ran a story about ThunderCats still possibly being on the loose, it now appears that the cage doors have slammed shut on this cartoon reboot. The show’s art director, Dan Norton, has claimed the following on Facebook: “Let me just say, nobody is working on TCats. It would take years to get it back on tv if we started today. Draw your own conclusion.”

The conclusion everybody seems to be drawing? That ThunderCats’ second life is over. While the news has yet to be confirmed by an official press release, Norton’s statement would seem fairly telling. However, others optimistically believe that the show is going forward without Norton and some staff since neither Bandai nor Cartoon Network has officially acknowledged a cancellation (and, in fact, the last official comment involved trying to work the show into Cartoon Network’s schedule).

Please No!! Come on, I was so happy they brought back an 80s cartoon and did it so well. We all grew up watching it and loving it, and we still love it even when the cartoon is a bit childish from the 80s, it carried a spirit and heroism that we could relate to. What I loved about the new animation is that they kept the spirit of the original animation yet they made the story more complex and did an amazing job of telling, more character development and depth, and a lot of morality was brought into it, something that I wasn’t expecting. The end of the season was so good I couldn’t wait for season 2, but it seems that no anouncement has been made and it was left of the Cartoon Network line up, please bring it back, we love the show.

The Animated Shows Are Back

All these shows were on hiatus since December, I don’t know why it takes so long for animated shows to come back after their breaks. It took them long enough, they are all back into play and really getting interesting, Young Justice as usual is into the third episode with a great storyline from DC Comics, Thundercats and Green Lantern just started this week and I’m looking forward to watching them.

  • Young Justice
  • Thundercats
  • Green Lantern The Animated Series

I’m also following Star Wars The Clone Wars, honestly its the animation is really good and the story is great, its into Season 4, if you like Star Wars then you will love this show.

Thundercats – The New Animated Series

Thundercats

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.

This is the best news I have heard yet for any story reboot, NEW THUNDERCATS!!!! After watching the show a few times recently its still pretty good and story isn’t too shabby but now they have young and old fans to impress. This came from WB Animation and going to debut on Cartoon Network, I love a lot of the animated shows that have come on to Cartoon Network, one of them being Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. Now a new Panthera and a deeper story to planned out, I just hope they do it justice, I can’t wait to see it.
