Here's the old Thundercats for comparison:

The new series will air in Cartoon Network. No date mentioned, as far as I know but I'd like to check out the first couple of episodes just to see how it is.

Looks cool. I was wondering what they were gonna look like. This is done by Studio 4ºC, isn't it?

Rio

Yup! The guys who did Tekkon Kinkreet, The Animatrix, Spriggan, and so on.

Hayashida
01-28-2011, 01:27 PM
Yeah they do good stuff. I think they did the music video for a song by the Bluetones and they did this thing that I want to watch called First Squad.
Anyway, it'll be cool to see what they did with Thundercats. I'm looking forward to it.

You're the worst john.

Hayashida
01-29-2011, 03:01 AM
What the fuck you guys, Snarf sucked. All he did was go "snarf snarf" and then would ditch Lion-o for dead. To hell with snarf. In fact, fuck snarf!

but snarf was the main character hes supposed 2 be ur fav

Hayashida
01-29-2011, 12:49 PM
What? Are you serious about snarf being the main character? He is like the worst main character then.

My friend sent me this the other day :P I'm looking forward to seeing how it is. I liked the Animatrix.

Man, lay off Snarf--he's a little cat thing, it's not like he could have done much to help them anyway, dude. In fact, he'd just get in the way if he tried to fight--and then they'd have to worry about him getting killed or captured or something. Better for him to run off and stay out of the way ;)

Hayashida
01-30-2011, 07:06 PM
Yeah I'm sure that's what Lion-O would be thinking all the time. "Oh drat, I've been captured by Mumm-Ra again! Snarf, you better not help me out of this predicament! I swear if you do I am going to be very cross!"
I think Lion-O would have rather Snarf try to help and end up killing himself in the process than having him fuck off and leave him to be potentially castrated and subsequently killed.

Evil_Cake
01-30-2011, 08:15 PM
man would you try to fight mumrah if u knew he'd kick your ass

Hayashida
01-30-2011, 08:27 PM
I don't know, maybe if you knew that it'd be easy but then something went wrong, like your shoelace came untied. You'd have to stop and tie it and then wham! That's when you'd get caught.

Evil_Cake
01-30-2011, 08:50 PM
snarf doesnt wear shoes so thats no problem. i mean if u were snarf

Hayashida
01-30-2011, 08:55 PM
I wasn't talking about snarf wearing shoes. That's just ridiculous. I was talking about Lion-O wearing shoes.

Evil_Cake
01-30-2011, 09:03 PM
what you aren't lion-oh

can u even say thundercats ho?

Hayashida
01-30-2011, 09:04 PM
Wait what? What is going on right now.

Evil_Cake
01-30-2011, 09:30 PM
pretty sure ur having a stroke

Problem?

I'd honestly need to see it to actually even say anything about this. Taking snarf out would make it more serious of a show. At least I can say that.

jubeh
02-02-2011, 08:11 PM
Yeah that's an awesome idea. Make a show about cat people who fight with swords and say HOOOO and play it completely straight.

I think the old Thunder cats look better.

PWhit
02-02-2011, 08:24 PM
@jubeh I wasn't saying it would be a good idea, I was commenting on the idea discussed earlier.

and...all that stuff about shoe laces and such, that I'm too lazy to quote.

Dude Hayashida! Lion-o's selfless! He wouldn't want anyone to sacrifice themselves for his cause. I mean, sure, if snarf could help, but if not, I don't think he'd want to take everyone down with him. He's too...heroic and stuffs.


Sorry for my late reply, I wasn't able to get to the comp. for a while. Don't mean to dredge up an old comment, but...I must defend Snarf!

Hayashida
02-04-2011, 02:03 PM
Yeah, Lion-O might claim he's selfless, but when it really comes down to it, I think he'd rather have snarf die then get killed himself. What is snarf anyway, is he like their pet or something.

I never watched a full episode, just the bloopers on Lion-Oh's cues. They are hilarious if you can ever find them.

Snarf, I'm guessing is that annoying talking pet that goes wherever the good guys are. Kinda like Genie from Aladdin (only Robin Williams was awesome).

also genie was kind of the most important thing in that story

This is true as well.

I computer hopped for that, so funny...

I think they really should have made the show that way. Would have AMAZING! When they redo it, they should totally cuss and add innuendos...

The new Thundercats anime made it's one hour debut last night on Cartoon Network folks & I think it was incredible!:cat_thumbsup:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrBmWKAyPk8&feature=player_detailpage

That's only a trailer.

Now, this new story appears to be divergent from the original show. For example, they are not on Third-Earth. This was the case with the 1st couple of episodes in the original show as well, but it appears to me that they may NOT be leaving Thundara for Third-Earth in the new one. It seems that this is the case because Mum-Ra is also on Thundara in the new one & in the original, he was only on Third-Earth. I feel that they do explain why the Sword of Omens is such an important artifact to both the protagonaists & antagonist better. Also, they really break down the politics of the different humanoid 'species' on Thundara (why the cats are on top, why the other species are fucked up with this,etc.). The explination of the level of technology and arcane knowledge. Some of the back story about the main characters paints a clearer picture than the original as well. Wiley Kit & Cat for example, are way more convincing if you ask me.

Snarf isn't the annoying nursemaid he was in the original. Now he appears to be some sort of adorable pet who oozes more cutness than "SNARF SNARF! I'm a scary lilttle beeotch! But don't hurt Lion-O! SNARF SNARF!". He can't seem to talk either, and maybe that's what makes him better in my opinion.

All in all, I'd say this is a great first attempt at a remake & it shows much promise for future eoisodes. Though, they have yet to intro the real panthro as of yet...they let us see an imposter & his nanchaku.
Watch this show.

but snarf was the best

From what I remember, Snarf had the most annoying voice of all time. I'm glad they silenced him.

Nyyyarhhh LION-ooooO~ SNARFF~

Don't make me say something about this.

Evil_Cake

was the first episode any good

Hayashida
08-01-2011, 03:22 AM
Just saw the first ep, was good. The one beef I have is that they should've made Lion-o more like he was in the original series and not like the generic 23-year-old typical anime main character. Other than that, yeah pretty good.

Black_Shaggie

Last week's episode was kinda "Captain Ahabby"...but it was still cool. I'm excited about tonight's episode.

(to Hayashida) I dunno dude. I kinda like that fact that Lion-O's not fully grown up. It was one of the things that bothered me in the original show because he was more or less a teen in an adult's body. All of that had something to do with the sleep chambers on the spaceship they took from Thundara to Third Earth though. Since that didn't (or hasn't) happen, it's logical for him to still be a teen. Nah...this makes way more sense.

Just like Snarf not talking.

CypressDahlia
08-12-2011, 07:43 PM
It's a prequel series so Lion-O being younger makes sense. He's still in pre-leadership mode. And thank GOD he's not wearing that blue swimsuit.

p lame that snarf doesnt talk

That one episode where they were on a ship hunting this kraken thing. Come on, just like Moby dick...

The last episode was epic. Lion-O went into the "Book of Omens" & clashed with Mumm-Ra in the guise of one of his ancestors. They really unfolded a lot of the back story in this one.

I watched one episode the other day. The main character looks kinda girly in the face. But the special effects are pretty cool. No idea whats going on though
