One of the best animated shows of the '80s, maybe even ever, 2 August 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I am a huge fan of animation, and when I came across ThunderCats I was interested. The concept intrigued me, so I decided to watch a few episodes to give it a try. In no time, I was actually hooked. ThunderCats is nothing short of brilliant. As I have said before I have seen plenty of exceptional shows, animated and non-animated, and ThunderCats is definitely one of those exceptional shows.

The animation is amazingly detailed in general, the colours and backgrounds are very sophisticated and the characters are all drawn wonderfully. There may be the odd occasion where it was perhaps imperfect but that is very minor. The music is also wonderful, the theme tune is one of the most memorable theme tunes in an animated show ever. The writing is very intelligent and thoughtful with a sense of adventure, and the story lines are incredibly deep(like I just said reviewing Gargoyles) and complex. Even more impressive are the characters, Lion-O is a courageous hero and leader, Cheetara is a beautiful, vivacious character and Mumm-Ra is a mysterious and sometimes frightening villain with a very sinister yet effective voice. The voice acting is superb and fit with the characters wonderfully, especially Earl Hammond as Mumm-Ra.

Overall, a brilliant show, one of the best animated shows of the '80s, maybe even ever. That may be rather rash to say, but it is pretty much my way of saying how wonderful ThunderCats is. 10/10 Bethany Cox
