‘Thundercats’ Is Returning On Cartoon Network, Twitter Is Not Impressed

Thundercats is coming back on Cartoon Network. But before you get too excited, you may want to take a look at particularly how the new version is being drawn.
Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and company are looking much more kid-friendly than the late 80’s cartoon we have come to know and love. And it’s definitely far removed from the 2011, anime-flavored re-up that y’all slept on and got canceled due to low rating.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Warner Bros. Animation is reviving the series as ThunderCats Roar.
Peep a featurette on the new series below. Set to debut in 2019, the show is “all about praise and love of the original” per producer Victor Courtright. We shall see.
Check out some of the already potent slander (and some postivie encouragement) on the following pages.
They got Thundercats looking like Steven Universe was locked in a Grundle Fly pod with Clarence and I am sad. pic.twitter.com/t1shBkgNDT
