Default ThunderCats (2019)

Guess what's back since the cancelled 2011 reboot? THUNDERCATS!

Guess what's being bastardized? THUNDERCATS!



EW - Cartoon Network bringing back ThunderCats for new animated series


“I think the world that they built lends itself really well to comedy because of how silly and crazy and outlandish those ideas are and some of those settings are,” says producer Victor Courtright in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video above. “But at the same time, it wouldn’t be ThunderCats if it didn’t have super cool action elements because that’s what people came back to. It’s very much something that we want to lean on. So with the new show, we’re not walking away from the action in any bit. Every step we take towards comedy, we take two more towards really cool action scenes and explosions and lasers and actions effects.”


YouTube Video


Make sure to leave an "angry" react on this behind the scenes video & comment (until they start deleting them, which I think they've started). I don't trust the manbun visionary behind it (he's a fan? yeah right... no fan would make this!).

Overly frenetic, zany, faux-Craig McCracken/Rebecca Sugar/Pendleton Ward version of an overrated cartoon from the depths of the 80s nostalgia barrel?

I'm equal parts 'What did I just watch?' and 'Curious to see how this'll come together.'

It's very different. I was never super attached to the original anyway so I guess I'm game

isn't that basically what cartoon network does now, takes older action cartoons and reboot them into wacky comedies

or maybe that's just the stuff you see when you don't actually watch the channel and just randomly stumble across the stuff people are complaining about online

I love the original "Thundercats" (still haven't seen the 2011 version) and this doesn't bother me any more than "Super Hero Squad" does despite my love of Marvel.

Yeah, I'm not sure what all the naysaying is about. I enjoyed the 2011 reboot just like I enjoy the new Voltron, but I don't see anything inherently bad about this. It looks like a genuinely fun time.

Also, why're you trying to stir up some sort of negative comment army? That's shitty, dude.

Lastly: What point is the face transformation trying to make? You could do the same thing with topically similar anime produced within the same decade and see even LESS variation depending on the ones you chose to morph like that, but that still doesn't make any actual comment about the shows the characters are used in. Similar animation styles and designs exist between multiple properties, so…?

The problem some fans seen to have is how this iteration doesn't seen to "take itself seriously".

I'm not. With what I saw, I assumed most felt the same way. Judging by the 19K "angry" reacts and the majority of the comments left... most do.

I thought the Cal Arts effect was a pretty well known meme. This show is just another example of it? I also thought it was a pretty well-known criticism that anime designs suffer from a lot of same-face syndrome
