Storyline

The inhabitants of the planet Thundera evacuate just before it is destroyed. They were pursued by a band of mutants. All but one of their escape ships was destroyed. Only a small group of Thunderans (Thundercats) remained. With only half engine power, the group, which was led by Jaga, had to set a course for the nearest planet. Jaga commanded their ship while the other 7 were in their stasis tubes. Jaga died on their journey to Third Earth and their ship crashed there. Soon they made friends with various groups in the area and they designed a fortress. Mumm-Ra the centuries-old embodiment of evil, along with the mutants that destroyed the rest of the Thunderans are a constant threat. But Lion-O, the new leader of the Thundercats, with his weapon the "Sword of Omens" will help the Thundercats to have a standing chance. Written by D. Darnoc

Thundercats ROCKED!!!
6 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, so here's my take on those fab cats!

Lion-o: Big strong guy with an awesome sword. A little unsure of himself at times, but who isn't? Always willing to help out others and a bit shy around Cheetara.

Panthro: A tough guy with a tender heart. But watch out for his nun chucks, they're lethal. A master mechanic who is in love with his "baby", the Thundertank.

Tygra: Architect and designer, he is also a physic of sorts. He is a voice of reason for the other Thundercats, uh, when he isn't getting addicted to Silky Fruit or keystones, LOL, just had to put that in there.

Cheetara: OK boys, go ahead a drool. This she cat is a fast one and an accomplished fighter. She is also known as a sex symbol of teenage boys during the 80's.

Wily Kit and Wily Kat: Always getting into trouble, but still very adorable. These kids were the link for many kids, even today. They go through what we did at that age, so we can relate to them.

Snarf: Lion-o's former nursemaid and his verbal conscience, he's not too good with electronics, but he can help out in a pinch.

Bengali: What can I say, the man is sexy(or maybe I just think so). A blacksmith back on Thundera, Bengali has had to reforge the Sword of Omens on more then one occasion. Oh, and don't forget his growl (shivers) Pumyra: Often overlooked and under-appreciated, this chick gets very little respect. What is known about her is that she is a healer and has never had a change of clothes.

Lynx-o: The oldest of the Thundercats, he was blinded during his escape from Thundera. Very knowledgeable about most everything and is sensitive to sound. He uses a braille board to "see" things. Not bad for an old guy.

So there you go, my little account of the Thundercats. If you want to know more, check out some of the websites dedicated to them. I'd give you a site, but I'm not sure the censors would let me. :(
