...you know, if that's not Frank Welker as Snarf, Frank Welker is going to be mad.

Yeah, the Kit/Kat scene was quite pleasantly surprising.  Everyone keeps making Peanuts comparisons (and their voices DO have that sound to them), but what it really gave me was a Miyazaki vibe.  Like, Castle in the Sky 'n' shit.

This week: Jelenic says he's hesitant to use the term "darker"; IGN headlines the story ThunderCats Gets Dark!

Not much new.  Apparently the Anointment Trials are getting adapted in some form, though only in two episodes instead of five.  I'm okay with that inasmuch as, while they're my favorite of the original series, they really are padded as hell.  Plus it looks like we'll be seeing Lion-O square off with at least Tygra from the very beginning, so the "beat the other Thundercats to earn your crown" thing is really going to play out across more than just two episodes.

Also apparently the third episode is a Moby Dick pastiche where Lion-O Learns a Valuable Lesson about being consumed by vengeance.

That sounds quite a lot like Thundercats, really.

Wrapping up its column, IGN gives us the music (and what I legitimately hope is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the widely-cited but completely-bullshit IMDb credit for James Lipton as the original series theme's composer).

The characters have themes again, and this time the main character gets one too.

I didn't link last week's because it was a damn Comicon contest for a replica Sword of Omens, but it turns out the video has some good hi-res bits of the show in it.  Including a bit of Lion-O doing the classic "Thunder -- thunder" motion.

Alright, so, just caught the premier. I rather liked that a good chunk of it early on was spent world building and portraying the Thunder Cat empire as not entirely undeserving of its downfall.

Also: I liked that Snarf doesn't talk.

...you know, rarely does something justify waiting 21 years for.  But fuck yes.

DN's right; there's a hell of a lot of nuance here that the original series just didn't have.  Also, violence.

This was really, really good! Can't think of a single thing I didn't at least kind of like about it. Good action, good story, good setting, animation is gorgeous, lizard folk are slightly more interesting than before, the kids are actually enjoyably watchable, Snarf is somehow kind of cute and not terribly obnoxious... I like it

Sadly nobody will really compare to Panthro's old voice actor, who as far as I'm concerned was the best thing about the original series. Earle Hyman's alive and kicking these days, but it looks like he retired as of 2001.

Thundercats: HOOOOOOOOOOOOOly crap that was good.


Also I can't believe that the internet is arguing over which anime it resembles and not mentioning Cowboy Bebop.

I mean Panthro is Jet Black how are you not seeing this

I don't think Thundercats so much resemble anime as it does a 16/32-bit RPG. I suspect episode 3 is going to follow our wide-eyed hero, his more practical older adoptive brother and the girl as they travel through an evil forest while battling smaller random encounters and a boss battle against some manner of dragon or dinosaur. Episode 4 will involve a small-yet-bustling desert trade town.

The PLOT is totally an RPG, but I mean in terms of character designs.

Nope.  Of the original cast, Bob McFadden (Snarf) and Earl Hammond (Mumm-Ra) have passed away; the rest are still around.  (Including Earle Hyman, who played Panthro and whose name is confusingly similar to Earl Hammond's.)

Point of trivia: Larry Kenney's daughter is Kerri Kenney-Silver, who played Wiegel on Reno 911.
