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

When shown on BBC television all scenes showing Panthero using his nunchakus were cut. The BBFC also cut the nunchakus from the video releases. The DVD releases are uncut. See more »
Although the show only lasted for a little over a year, THUNDERCATS has a somewhat large fan base, mostly consisting of nerds such as myself. During the the two seasons the show was on the air, it was the best animated show on television. The animation may not have been very good, but in most of the episodes, the stories and characters were surprisingly well written and the voice work was fantastic. The show was really nothing special, just cheesy action packed fun. Of coarse, the best part of the show was the theme song. A song that I repeatedly had stuck in my head when I was younger, I still find myself singing it every now and then. One of the best animated shows of the 1980s, the legacy of THUNDERCATS lives on.
