“ Appropriate to be last. This was the 2nd biggest shocker to have disappeared from existence (Young Justice being 1st). Probably one of the greatest animated series ever to be made. This show was so powerful and intense at times it rivaled the best tv shows. The scope, magnitude, emotion, and work that went into this show was above and beyond. Having only seen a few of the 1985 series, I didn't know what to expect, until I saw the trailer. It was amazing. The double part opener was so huge in scale, so beautifully drawn, done with such care, I would have thought it was a movie. Every episode was this amazing, even the lesser ones. They didn't hold anything back in the writing, didn't dumb things down, took risks, had passion, a soul. This one hurt. It deserves to come back above all others. The only reason I say Young Justice was the #1 shocker was the ratings. Not sure about the ratings for Thundercats, but the way it ended, and to never come back. It's a real travesty. Just imagine if Empire Strikes Back ended... without a Return of the Jedi. If someone has a heart at Cartoon Network, they'll order this show back without a second thought. Thunda- Thunda- Thundercats hoooooo! ” - hafaball-1
