I saw the trailer for the new anime-style Thundercats show and I really liked it. Â It plays up more the original’s feeling of “Cats meets Lord of the Rings”. Â The character designs are more or less intact: Lion-O looks younger and Cheetarah still looks awesome. Â Mumm-Ra looks terrifying. Â Wiley Kit and Wiley Kat even manage to look a little cool. Â In the original they irritated me. So much that I used to pray they would fall into a pit and get eaten by Mumm-Ra’s mummy dog.
