    Looks delightful. As long as kids like it. That's all that matters.

    What cartoon has that same style? I know I've seen it before but I can't put my finger on it.

    Probably not the style I would have chosen but I'll give it a chance before I pass judgement. Might be really funny with good writing.

    It appears that every show wants to be Teen Titans Go! now. While I love that show, I also appreciate unique ideas. I guess we'll find out.

    The character models remind me of Steven Universe.

    Well, since the uber-serious 2011 version bombed, I am not surprised for such a huge shift in tone and look. I am not sure I will be able to like it, but if it hooks kids, then that will be a good thing.
    Most wanted: 1) Lizorr, 2) Sagitar, 3) King Miro, 4) Hunga, 5) Hoove, 6) Kayo, 7) Artilla, 9) Master Sebrian, 10) Masks of Power Demons, 11) Twiggets, 12) Raj-Jar, 13) Hans Hammerholder, 14) Staghorn, 15) Spinwit, 16) Kittrina, 17) Vizar, 18) Butthead, 19) Nocturna, 20) Melaktha, 21) Stridor, 22) Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle, 23) ABC Giants

    Thundercats Roar

    I will not link the abomination known as a 2 minute trailer...your eyes will thank me.

    Is there some kind of mission out there to destroy everything we loved as a kid and make it into total crap?

    Ghostbusters, Turtles, Star wars, hopefully not She-Ra, and now Thundercats? sigh..
    I imagine this is what the rock band like concept would have been like

    I'm totally old of course, but I think this one looks wonderful... and I know my kids will like it too... we both manage to love Adventure Time and Teen Titans Go, and this looks like it hits right in that niche. Just hope it lasts longer than the prior T'Cats show (which I also liked for different reasons!)

    its not my thing either.. .. BUT you have to get fresh ideas... we are no longer the target audience any more.. they need to cater to the youth.... we had our day... now its time to pass the torch..

    it's not fresh when it looks like ten other shows on tv right now and copies the teen titans go style.

    even kids can recognize crap. that's one reason to gravitate more toward video games.

    OK K.O.! Lets Be Heroes. but with a new Thudercats reskin.

    And I'm AOK with that.

    See what I did there...ah..ah...

    That's what kids' animation is all about today: HUMOR...& STYLIZED.
    Both which change during generations.

    Me...I'll give it a roar for a couple of episodes, same with She-Ra, see if I'll like.

    My 5-year-old will like it - which is obviously their target audience. I've seen grown men having hissy fits about this on various FB pages & the Thundercast FB page. Really sad & clichéd. They're genuinely perplexed as to why CN didn't aim this at 40-year-old men.

    "My childhood is ruined!!" - as if this somehow affects the old cartoon. Like it goes back & edits frames of animation & alters the dialogue tracks, and those changes get authored onto eveyone's DVD copies.

    Right, this doesn't alter the 130 episodes we already got. ...I'm still a bit sad the 2000s version didn't get more episodes though. Cancellation mid-arc is rough!

    I don't love this art style nor do I really like the tone, but I'll probably watch it anyway, for what it is.

    Edit: sorry, I thought you were referring to MOTU 200X getting cancelled. Point still valid though...




    Yeah, it would have been nice to see 200X Hordak in the cartoon. Another series would have tied it all up nicely.

    But the 200X series & the 80s series were separate & stood alone. Just like this will stand separate from the Thundercats classic and 2011 series.

    They're aiming this new series at small children, and grown men are genuinely annoyed it doesn't appeal to them. I find it hard to understand that frame of mind. It's not for you, bro - relax. Move on with your life.

    I don't like the trendy flavor of the month animation style, but I'll check the show out and give it a chance.

    Not for me. I'm old and I'll understand if may appeal to children. However, besides Voltron on Netflix and some anime series, I don't see any new cartoons that have action & adventure (and even drama) where humor is an add on to the show and not the main focus.

    Painful! Seems that He-Man equivalent cartoon comedy series we were teased an image never got off the ground?

    Thankful for the He-Man/ThunderCats comic crossover (even if the dialogue was jarring at times). Another ThunderCats semi-serious attempt in comics would be nice and I would purchase but otherwise I have put them to rest in my world.

    I also wish failure on others. It fuels me.
