Studio 4C Animated Series Launches July 29

June 28, 2011 11:37am CDT

Cartoon Network has announced that the Studio 4C (TekkenKinkreet, MindGame, AniMatrix) animated revival of beloved 80's standard ThunderCats will premiere on the network with a one hour special on Friday, July 29, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT).

Following the premiere, the show will air regularly on Cartoon Network Friday nights at 8:30 p.m. (ET, PT) beginning August 5.

On Third Earth, the kingdom of Thundera is being threatened by the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, and Lion-O, the young heir to the throne, embarks on a great quest to take his rightful place as king. The unlikely champion must work with his faithful comrades Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKit, WilyKat, and his loyal pet, Snarf, who join him on his journey to save their world from darkness. From Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), ThunderCats is executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, The Looney Tunes Show), with Michael Jelenic (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) producing.

To celebrate the premiere, ThunderCats will have a significant presence at Comic-Con International: San Diego. A panel scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Friday, July 22 in room 6A will include an exclusive screening of the hour-long series premiere. Producers Michael Jelenic, Ethan Spaulding and art director Dan Norton will participate in a subsequent panel discussion and answer questions from fans. Coinciding with Comic-Con, Cartoon Network will also air nine episodes from the classic ThunderCats series over the weekend of July 23. Boomerang will also host a classic ThunderCats marathon on July 16 and 17 and air the series every day at 5 p.m. starting Monday, July 18.

I thought it was pretty good, I really enjoy the animation and the action/twists and turns.

Watched this last night. Going in, I had very low hopes after seeing some of the recent remakes of 80s cartoons. The remade GI Joe, Voltron, and Transformers are all awful. Still, I enjoyed Thundercats when I was younger and decided to give it a shot.

I actually liked the show and thought some of the backstory and set up of the series was well done. It felt new, but there were enough things to trigger memories of the original series that made me happy.

Looking forward to catching this each week.

I've seen the first three episodes and it looks visually spectacular, especially on Cartoon Network's high-definition channel. http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/standart/good2.gif I keep on thinking, "this is what anime looks like when you spend a large amount of money per episode."
