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
The main setting of the series is a planet called "Third Earth". This is supposed to be our own Earth in its distant future, though humans are no longer the dominant species. Several figures from the past of the planet do make appearances, including the Lady of the Lake and Merlin from Arthurian legends. Mumm-Ra is supposedly a survivor from an earlier era, in his own words: "From a time when this was still First Earth!" See more »

...Yeah everything from the theme tune to the show itself was pretty damn cool all round! The movie was amazing aswell... much better than the Pokemon movies could ever come up with!
You know it upsets me when I see what animators are coming up with now, it's no wonder than 80's cartoons are back in fashion because all this cyber/Pokemon/3-D Animation rubbish is just awful! Give me Thundercats, He-Man, Real Ghostbusters, Inspector Gadget, Danger Mouse any day!
The only bad thing about Thundercats was the Ed McMahon style HO!!!! they put onto the name... It dated in a horrendous way!
Lion-O you were the man! I bet most red headed people look up to you as their god!
