Thundercats Reboot is effin awesome!

I have a new favorite show!!! Thunder... Thunder. Thunder! THUNDERCATS HOOOO!!!! July 29 2011 was the debut of the much anticipated relaunch of the beloved 80s cartoon, Thundercats. It had 1 hour season premiere on Cartoon Network.

I've seen the first 4 episodes already and they're worth it! I'm a happy fan. I'm a big fan of the 80s cartoon and I loved that cartoon to death. I was a bit worried on how this would turn out but man this cartoon is effin awesome!!! Yes. It's THAT good! 

There are some changes from the original version but I can accept it. I like it. The biggest change is that Lion-O isn't a kid trapped in a man's body anymore. He's the new lord of the Thundercats who has to learn the ropes. 

The story's fantastic and the animation is even better. I'm really happy with it! What made me even more happy was the fact that they retained the sound effects. From the sword of omens to Cheetara's running. Fans of the old cartoon will like this and even new watchers. 

I HIGHLY. HIGHLY. Recommend this cartoon. Go watch it!
