Thundercats, Hoooo!!
« on: September 23, 2003, 03:42 PM »
At least that is what I remember the battle cry being :).  This was another toy/cartoon from the 80s that came up when my friend and I were talking about our childhoods the other day.  Did any of you have these figures as a kid (or even now)?  For some reason, I only had/have Panthro, who was my favorite...not sure why I didn't have more, I remember watching this show all the time (as well as another show called Silverhawks)...maybe it was just bad timing.  Anyways, I remember Cartoon Network used to show this show once in awhile when I was still in college...wouldn't mind seeing it make a comeback ala MOTU.  Anyways, I was just curious if anyone else remembers/liked this toy line/cartoon...and thought we could discuss it here.  I wouldn't mind seeing the toyline make a comeback in the Four Horseman style, although I don't know if I could afford buying it...it would still be cool to see :).

Yeah, you hear that, ho? Thundercats.

I think this is the only big 80's property I never got into. The local comic shop had a few old figures on display and I had never actually seen the toys, so that was pretty cool. They only had Panthro and Mumm-Ra, if I remember correctly.

LOL! When I saw that in Toyfare with Chris Tucker's pic I fell on the floor laughing.  :D
I remember my dream now.

That pic is the first thing that came to my mind when entering this thread. Damn, I love Toyfare.

Damn, we hella killed this thread. I found a Mumm-Ra at my local comic shop last week, loose without accessories, for $12. They also had a Man-At-Arms in the same condition for $11. Talk about out of touch.

What was the Water based cartoon from the same people?  I liked Thundercats for a while and for some reason dug Panthro as well, i think I may have even had a figure.  But this whole line and cartoon pulls at no strings these days and I am glad because I don't need to collect anything else!

Snorks was the only underwater cartoon I remember.  I never heard of Battlesharks.

I vaguely remember Battlesharks too, but I don't think I watched it.  I kind of remember that Snorks cartoon, much like Smurfs, like was said.  Actually my wife's younger sister used to be nicknamed Snorks, don't ask me why :).

Does she have an appendage growing out of her head?  If so, that's probably why.  If not, who knows.

It wasn't Battlesharks either...something like that though

Thundercats, this water one and another cartoon was like in an hour block of Cartoons all made by the same people and sorta like He-Man all made to sell toys

I know the same people that made Thundercats did a little thingy called Silverhawks, where goofballs walked around in chrome bird suits. Pretty wacky, but it was also 1987.

From the article at TNI:

Quote
"Warner Bros. is also working on securing new licensees to re-launch the '80s animated series, The Thundercats. Warner Bros. has the classic as well as new licensee to develop product for children, including an updated Thundercats look and collectibles for early fans."

I'll finally be able to get a Snarf figure!



Frankly I'm excited about all this... America needs Thundercats now more than ever.
