The original Rankin-Bass ThunderCats (1985) was a toy-based sword-and-sorcery program created for US syndication. For the new Japanese version (2011), the characters were redesigned--to match a new line of toys. Lion-O, the heir to the lost kingdom of Thunderra, and his friends Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, Wilykit, and Wilykat continue their search for the magical "power stones" that will enable them to reestablish the feline realm and defeat the evil Mumm-Ra. The storyline zigs and zags erratically, undercutting what should be an increasing sense of urgency. Mumm-Ra regains the powerful Sword of Plun-Darr in episode 21, but instead of using it, he disappears. The next episode focuses on the silly misadventures of Wilykit and Wilykat in a canine city, where they obtain a magic bag Doraemon might envy. When Mumm-Ra reappears he doesn't use the Sword, but turns himself into a monster that looks like one of the clumsier Hollows in Bleach--and is defeated by the giant bug that pulls the wagon of a huckster who sells a poisonous elixir. Although the series was made in Japan, the look of the characters, the fragmented narrative, and the very tame battle scenes all feel like an American series from the not-so-good old days of He-Man and She-Ra. ThunderCats ends in the middle of the story, as Cartoon Network ordered only 10 episodes, and its future remains uncertain. (Not rated, suitable for ages 8 and older: minor violence) --Charles Solomon

Format: DVD
I wasn't aware that the last half of the season had even aired due to the Cartoon Network not promoting the move to Saturday mornings, where it should have been placed in the first place. I just happened to stumble upon "The Birth of the Blades" one Saturday morning.

I grew watching the original series, which can never be replaced, but the new ThunderCats has surpassed all my expectations for a remake. It has great writing, a talented voice-cast, and colorful animation. Unlike the original that mostly focused on Lion-O, the new incarnation has allowed episodes to focus on the other characters, giving them more depth.

I enjoyed watching this two discs set. My favorite episodes from Book three would have to be the two-part finale "What Lies Above." Unfortunately, the season ended in a cliffhanger and the Cartoon Network didn't order a second season. The only hope for a second season lies in the powers of Warner Bros., who own the series.

The episodes on Book 3 are:

Disc One:

Ep. 17 - Native Son
Ep. 18 - Survival of the Fittest
Ep. 19 - The Pit
Ep. 20 - Curse of Ratilla
Ep. 21 - Birth of the Blades

Disc Two:

Ep. 22 - The Forever Bag
Ep. 23 - Recipe for Disaster
Ep. 24 - The Soul Sever
Ep. 25 - What Lies Above (Part One)
Ep. 26 - What Lies Above (Part Two)

This part of the Thundercats 2011 is good. Like everyone else, I am put off that they couldn't end this series. Pumyra is left as being a traitor - not cool. Over all great animation and story - I'll be irritated for the rest of my life unless they can get one more season out for some darn conclusion.

For those who watched the original Thundercats show then this show will bring a lot of that back. It has basically the same story as the first season of the original while also being unique. It goes into a little more depth with back story on some of the characters and some is completely different. Overall I enjoyed this show just as much as the original.

This is an impressive update to the original series from the 1980's. Being a big fan of the ThunderCats, I could hardly wait for the DVDs to come out after the new series was launched.

It doesn't disappoint. The story line is far different than the original series, and it's "darker" than the original. But it still focuses on the core aspects of the ThunderCat philosophies of truth, honor, and loyalty. They spend time tackling all kinds of issues from racism, to slavery, to the value of friendship, and plenty more.

May not be suitable for really young kids. I loaned my set to a colleague, and he said his 6 year old didn't like some of the more violent sequences...particularly where someone was killed (which never happened in the original series).

i fell in love with this new version of ThunderCats. all of the same characters are there, with a bit of a twist on how they ended in the battle with MummRa. i even enjoy some improvements (Snarf is not nearly as annoying). i bought the entire first season. great addition to my collection.

This is the final disc of the first season release of Cartoon Network's Thundercats remake.

The series is a fresh look at a classic from my childhood. If you're a fan of the original, there is enough loyalty to the characters and plot-line of the first series to keep you happy, while the updates are all in well-needed areas (improved animation, sound, acting...) They even take away Snarf's ability to talk, rendering him a super-smart catlike creature. BRAVO!

Great ending to the first season of this awesome reboot. Sadly, it looks like there won't be a second season. That's a shame since this series is so good. Watch the whole series and decide for yourself.

Thundercats season 1 Book 1, 2, and 3 was a wonderful experience my grandchildren and my Grown children love this series. We purchased the original series a few months ago and my grand children were able to see the difference in their parents Thundercats and the Current 2012 version. We hope this is not the end to this wonderful series of DVD movies.
