Just over six months ago, news broke that Thundercats – a popular 1980’s cartoon was getting an anime-style revamp in 2011 and it will be shown on Cartoon Network. I was a massive fan of the original Thundercats while growing up, it was one of the many weekday afternoon cartoons that were shown on Jamaican television in the 1990’s just in time for when kids came home from school.
A new official image featuring the main characters from Thundercats was released today and I must say I cant wait to see them animated. Lion-O, Panthro, Tygra, and Cheetara look decent but Panthro looks like he is my favourite so far – I can only imagine how other characters like Mumm Ra and vehicles like the Thunder Tank will look, ooh and dont forget about snarf!
Update – Trailer added
