was a popular cartoon that aired from 1985 to 1989.
Fans of this cartoon will remember that it was about a
group of humanoid cats that were forced to relocate to a
new planet. Characters included Lion-O, Panthro, Jaga,
Tygra, WilyKat, Bengali, Cheetara, Snarf, Pumyra, and
Lynx-O. In 1986, at the height of the show’s
popularity, a made-for-TV movie was released called
ThunderCats – HO! There was also a comic book
series back in the 80’s, as well as a ton of toys and
even a couple of video games. In 2011, a reboot of the
show was attempted that only lasted for one season.
this cartoon, the ThunderCats were a team of catlike
humanoids forced to relocate to a planet called Third
Earth after their home planet, Thundera, was destroyed.
During the escape to another planet, the Thunderean
fleet is attached by the Mutants of Plun-Darr, who
destroy every ship except the flagship, which is thought
to contain the mystic Sword of Omens, which holds the
“Eye of Thundera” (which gives the ThunderCats their
power). Eventually they make it to Third Earth, setting
up a new home, but the Mutants manage to track them
there, where they team up with an evil sorcerer on the
planet, named Mumm-Ra, who wants the Eye of Thundera for
himself. Thankfully, however, the ThunderCats are able
to thwart Mumm-Ra’s advances.
