Thundercats 2011 – Must Watch

The new Thundercats that recently premiered on Cartoon Network got my blood pumping, I was so excited to watch the show and at the same time I was hoping that I wouldn’t be disappointed by it, thankfully the show has lived up to my initial expectations. It was a two episode premiere on Friday and will be airing every Friday. You get to see the original Thundera and a young Lion-O, how the lives of the Cats were originally and the story plays out very very well, you even get to see the original Jaga of the Thundercats. I don’t want to spoil the show for anyone but if your even a remote fan of this show you have to watch it, I felt like an excited kid watching it and when the show ended I wanted more, now I have to wait for it on Fridays.

Thunder Cats Trailer & X-Men Anime Trailer

I have been talking about the Thunder Cats reboot any time I hear a piece of information or picture, and with the release of the trailer I can’t wait to see the anime. Its taken some time but I hope it gets released this year.

Now this is an interesting development, first it was Iron Man, then they were working on Wolverine, and it seems that X-Men have joined the Anime bandwagon and it looks pretty good. I love that they are catering these cartoons to adults, and from the 30 seconds from the Japanese production company Madhouse its looking good.

Warner Brothers has at last announced the new images of Thunder Cats that they have been working, and I really like where this is going. A lot of shows are going the Anime way to give it the more adult like look rather then cartoonish look. And the way this is going I think they are working hard on it to get the story right and to perfect the animation for a show that so many of us hold so dear. I’m hoping it comes out soon, but for now I’m enjoying a good amount of animated shows and other then my usual anime line up.

My Top Retro Cartoons

ThundercatsHeroesandVillains

There was always something special about the cartoons back in the day, I would be stuck to the screen. I remember Mumra from Thunder Cats really scared me and pissed me off, I don’t know how many things I broke swinging a stick around saying “Thunder Cats, Thunder Cats, Thunder Cats! HOOOOOOO!”, I remember even hitting our Sony Tri-Color TV back in the day, and it weighed around 60 Kgs.

My List

  • Thunder Cats – The best cartoon of the 80s, Panthera was cool always making gadgets and still kicking ass
  • Voltron – The best of the 80s
  • Silver Hawks – They were really cool!
  • Centurions – Man and Machine Power Extreme! I wanted to be Ace McCloud, always wanted to fly!
  • Brave Star – Some many different powers!

Worthy Mentions

  • He Man – I wanted his tiger!
  • GI Joe
