thundercats – HO!

one thing i miss most about growing up is missing out on afternoon cartoons.  one of my favorites being Thundercats

Lion-O

Thundercats!

20 years later we enter the “we ran out of cool ideas, so lets revisit old ones” era and we stumble back upon Lion-O and all of his friends.  

still not sure what the accurate word is – are we going to see this on the big screen or as a tv series?  from what I see, could be both…

finally we get to revisit a modernized Lion-O and his buddies from Thundera!  the show is suppose to air sometime next year (2011) on Cartoon Network.

MTV says:

Calling it “a sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes,” the studio offered some hints about what the new “Thundercats” series will involve, including “the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost.”

the most bizzare story that entangles in with the Thundercats is how one of the original writers for the cartoon was murdered.

LAWeekly says:

Police in Florida this week said 56-year-old Stephen Perry, who wrote for the 1980s cartoon series Thundercats, was murdered. The man had gone missing for nearly two weeks, and police reportedly found his arm inside of his abandoned van on the grounds of a Tampa Bay hotel May 16.

his arm?  they just found his ARM?  how brutal and freakish is that??

either way, we get a movie or a cartoon series – i’m DEFINITELY checking it out!  forgot what the show’s theme song was?  check it —>
