ThunderCats, ho! See how the legend began with the first 33 episodes of the original animated series. Born on the doomed planet Thundera, in a faraway galaxy, the ThunderCats - half human, half feline - must find a new home on the Third Earth, a strange world where they must battle mutants led by the evil S-S-Slithe and the ancient devil priest, Mumm-Ra, who seeks the source of the ThunderCats' power: the Eye of Thundera, embedded in the Sword of Omens, possessed by young noble Lion-O. The ThunderCats - Jaga, the wise; Tygra, the invisible; Cheetara, the quick; sly duo Wilykat and Wilykit; the deadly Panthro; Snarf and more - are all sworn to protect their young lord, Lion-O, but Mumm-Ra can transform himself into anything from a warrior to a swarm of locusts; where evil lies, there you will find Mumm-Ra. Can the Cats triumph over his tyranny?]]>

Months ago, WB finally announced they would be releasing the series in a total of four box sets (33/32/33/32), which had everyone cheering for the return of one of their favories shows, in top notch DVD quality. Most of all, they were given a SRP of $64.99, thus guaranteeing the episodes must be remastered. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
For a SRP of $64.99, you get 33 episodes on six discs, but without any remastering done whatsoever. What was WB thinking? Not only do the episodes look like they were dumped down from VHS tapes (giving it a bootleg quality appearance), but there are a mass amount of errors throughout the episodes themselves. One of the major issues is with the second episode, "Unholy Alliance," which is missing all of the music (sans the opening and closing) during the episodes. However, this is only the case in the English track as both the Spanish and French versions have the music playing. Whatever the reason is, this is totally unacceptable. Hopefully WB will issue a recall and offer replacement discs.
The next negative to this set is that it is definitely no where near woth a SRP of $64.99. Yes, you can buy them cheaper online or at a retail store, but if you pay more than $30-35 for this set, then you were just ripped off. You could buy a DVD-R bootleg (not that you should) off ebay of the entire series in the same quality (if not better) for $15 more.
With other 80's shows, coming out (or have already been released) with a beautiful remastered print, and 5.1 audio, this makes this buy even worse than it seemed before. Why couldn't WB let Rhino handle this?Read more ›
First and foremost, it *is* Thundercats. It *is* on dvd, and it *is* about time. Thundercats is one of the most popular and beloved cartoons of all time. The characters, storyline, animation, music and effects came together to form a magnificent cartoon. The voice acting is well done, and practically every story draws the viewer in and leaves you wanting more. Two of my favorite episodes from the series is included with this release: "Pumm-Ra" and "The Ghost Warrior". While both episodes contain many parts which detail why they are my favorite, I have two highlights to share.
In "Pumm-Ra" the moment comes when Pumm-Ra has possesson of the Sword of Omens. As he raises it above his head, and tries to call upon the swords power(s) by uttering: "Thunder...Thunder...Thunder..Thundercats...Ho!" The music, the brief capture of Lion-O just prior in fear/shock not knowing what will or is about to happen, the after effects (I.E. The "Cataclysm" as Panthro states), all build such a great moment. However, for me, once Pumm-Ra hand is forced by the sword to release it, Jaga appears instantly before Lion-O and states: "The mystic Sword of Omens cannot be used for evil...know the wrath of Jaga", it is just an awesome moment. Lion-O picks up the sword, only to be mocked by Pumm-Ra: "Too late...Boy"! The Mutants than appear behind Lion-O in the Thundertank...I could go on, but it's better you watch it.
In "The Ghost Warrior", there are also numerous reasons why I love it.Read more ›
