The new Cartoon Network series sounds like a prequel to the (abysmal) Rankin-Bass cartoon, with the new show charting Lion-O's ascension to prince of the cat-faced muscle-men. If you think Thundercats is an untouchable work of genius and a benchmark in television animation history, then you probably haven't seen the show since you were a single digit age. It hasn't exactly held up over the years.
My beef with Thundercats fans (ready to throw down?), is that the whole concept was really a He-Man rip-off in the first place. How someone can like Thundercats and not love He-Man is as absurd to me as Creed fans that dismiss Pearl Jam. To its credit, I do like Thundercats more than Creed, for whatever that's worth.
