This series represents an excellent reboot of a beloved franchise and although the art is obviously influenced by Anime it's a little less stylized, there's no fan-service and violence is usually non-gory (i.e. pretty family friendly).

If you're familiar with the original series then you'll quickly notice the overarching story has changed; as it turns out Thundera is located on Third Earth, and after being besieged by the forces of Mumm-Ra, is subsequently destroyed along with the majority of the population. Afterwards a very small group of survivors, led by the royal heir Lion-O, set off on a quest for forgotten knowledge and mysterious artifacts that will aid them in avenging their people. Also, where the original series made Third Earth feel sparsely populated and that every adventure took place within walking distance of the cats' home base, the new planet by contrast just feels huge, with a seemingly limitless diversity of races thus increasing the scale of the story and, in my opinion, adding to the element of fantasy.

Although the primary characters remain the same their personalities, powers and history have changed. Lion-O is primarily a swords-man, his main function as king is to wield the Sword of Omens after all, but he's also relatively young and immature and so isn't quite the all-powerful leader as in the original where he was more like a He-Man with a mane making the rest of the team kind of superfluous. Ultimately I think this character's greatest asset is just in having a good heart. Tygra is Lion-O's older brother in this version as well as his physical superior in pretty much every way, he's still got the whip of invisibility but he's also into tech as well.

I watched the original series when I was in elementary school. It was a great show. ThunderCats 2011 is not the same as the old series. If you are new to ThunderCats you may think this show is awesome, especially if you like flashbacks. However, if you are a fan of the original you may not like the differences.

The creative team behind the ThunderCats redesigned the characters in more of an anime style. The characters have the same names and some of the same characteristics as the original characters, but the 2011 ThunderCats are not the original ThunderCats with new hair and outfits. I like the redesigns for all the characters except Panthro. He is huge and powerful, which fits, but they gave him sideburns and a slipknot. His redesign reminded me too much of Hellboy. I expected him to drink beer and smoke cigars. Snarf does not talk, which I liked. I did not realize that the original Snarf was a little annoying until this series. WilyKat and WilyKit are the closest to the original series characters personality wise. Tygra is really different. Mumm-Ra and his crew are bigger baddies this time around. Even his lackeys got a power-up and an "evil up".

ThunderCats 2011 has a fascinating and more complex ThunderCats mythology, which was a welcome change. The history behind the new ThunderCats and the present day events were interesting. ThunderCats 2011 is a darker series. It is not Batman dark, but it is not as lighthearted and fun as the original. War, violence, discrimination, and death play a much bigger role in the new storyline. ThunderCats 2011 appeals more to teens and adults instead of the 6-12 boy demo. This maybe the reason the show was cancelled. There were rumors saying the show was cancelled because of merchandise sales more than the ratings slip.

The series started off interesting and seemed to contain a lot of potential. But as someone that's seen all the episodes of season one multiple times, I can't say it's wowed me since episodes one and two. Plot holes become an issue as one watches and characters behave contrary to their established new series personalities. Drama is built up and not usually satisfied. Several characters seem to be altered for the sake of drama and unfortunately, characters like Cheetara and Panthro become basically irrelevant as time and episodes draw on. Animation is generally fair, soundtrack is fine, and voice acting seemed pretty good. Writing is the main issue that I and several other viewers - fans of the old series and new, in fact - have taken with it. Mostly adults and teens seem to watch it; I haven't yet met many kids who actually cared one way or the other about it. And the occasional innuendos that were slipped aren't exactly proper for children's fare.

Not saying don't watch or buy it. I've enjoyed about half the series, and I still generally like the basic concept. Just be aware that while there is quite a bit to enjoy, there is also a lot left to be desired.

Thundercats, to many, represents all that was good about childhood: wildly imaginative and action packed. The reboot takes all that was wonderful about the previous iteration and adds gorgeous animation, top notch story-telling, and a darker theme to create a truly unique experience.

For both fans of the previous series and newcomers alike, Thundercats 2011 is a fantastic experience. I can't wait to see what the creative team has in store!
