A nightmare torments Lion-O. He believes that he was saved from his erupting planet as a youngster at the sacrifice of three other Thunderians. Jaga informs the now grown Lion-O that his nightmare is...
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
Be honest - when was the last time in recent years you saw ANY villain in a cartoon series who put the breeze up your kilt like Mumm-Ra used to? That 9' frame, those sinister trailing red-and-black bandages and of course a voice like bubbling tar and grated glass. Even now, hearing that terrifying 'HHRRRRAAAAAAA!!!' that he bellowed in the opening credits still sends a shudder down my spine. And whats it up against? Let me think... umm - NOTHING. EVER. DVD!! DVD, again I say!!! Show the next generation that cel villains CAN be scary!
