The series follows the adventures of a group of cat-like humanoid aliens. The animation was provided by Pacific Animation Corporation. Season 1 of the show aired in 1985 (65 episodes), followed by a TV movie entitled ThunderCats - HO! in 1986.

ThunderCats fan art

https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZTLB5Xspf/

I've always loved the ThunderCats. Here is a doodle I made of them. I used the VHS box art of The Lion King as inspiration. So you could call this the Thundercat King if you want. Thundercats hoooooooo!

CN cancelled Thundercats 2011 because it was too expense to produce

Video: https://youtu.be/vREQaPKd97g?t=110

Cartoon Network cancelled Thundercats 2011 because it was too expensive to produce.

The animation studio that was hired to produce TC2011 was from Japan and their costs per episode was too expensive for CN. Other than hiring another studio to produce the show, CN decided to sabotage the show by changing the airing times. By changing the airing times each week, CN made it seem like the ratings were low, despite the fact that TC2011 was popular.

Thundercats 2011 was canceled because CN was being too cheap.

Help finding an episode

All I remember is there is a bounty hunter, it seemed to be humanoid and part machine. It was very skilled, had a staff? and it seemed to be able to counter each of the Thundercats.

I think it was from the original series, in the 80's. Thank you very much.

What do you consider canon to the original show?

Anything besides the show itself? The Star Comics? The Wildstorm comics? Just the show itself? Any other media?

Just curious.

ThunderCats DVD vs. Pidax Blu-Ray Screenshot Comparisons

Another user uploaded a side by side comparison video of the show intro on DVD next to the Pidax Bluray version.

For me, it was a bit hard to really study the differences because the intro is pretty fast moving. So I took some screenshots from the video after playing it with YouTube video quality set to it highest setting.

Personally to me, the Bluray images are a bit darker and the colors are a bit muted but in most cases, (to me) they look sharper and cleaner. Judge for yourself:

Gorgeous Mumm-Ra Cover by Francesco Mattina (check it out!!) 400 copies available

So far only a "black and white" version of this has been available. Honestly, that one was so busy, it was hard to discern the full context of the image. For me, at least.

Thanks to the "Cover Galleries" offered here, I saw months ago that a "Color Splash" version would be released by Scott's Collectables. I've been hounding them as politely as possible ever since.

When I placed my order a couple of days ago, I was stoked to see that the final version isn't a "color splash" version at all, but is instead offered now in FULL COLOR...and it is freaking gorgeous!!! So I want to share with y'all!

I have been collecting the Mumm-Ra-centric covers of this Dynamite run and without a doubt, this is by far my absolute favorite of all those Mumm-Ra covers. I'm super-down with the almost horror-like tinge to it!

Long-story-short: this comic was only JUST made available online today. There are 400 prints in total. If you're into owning this delightfully creepy, yet undeniably beautiful Mumm-Ra edition of Thundercats #1, go here:

https://scottscollectables-shop.co.uk/products/thundercats-1-virgin-colour-mattina-variant

p.s.- I don't work for them or nothin', I'm just a huge Thundercats nerd and would hope others would share similarly if they had some skinny.
