They're rebooting the Thundercats.  Not sure if it's gonna be better or not.

This blog has a link to the trailer:

Ah i LOVED the Tundercats when I was a girl. It dosn't look too bad, but WHERE was Pantharo (was that the right name?)

Ren must be positively giddy with glee!

There's also a snippet of the CGI-movie Thundercats project that has apparently been shelved in favour of the animated version floating around teh interwebz. It looked pretty cool.

Didn't watch any cartoons between 1970 and 1994 Hope they do not destroy your memories

Yeeaahh I saw a picture of that. I... am not sure what to think of this. The 'reboot' of He-Man was less than stellar, and children's cartoons generally suck nowadays, so I'm not holding out much hope for this. But! I remain forever the optimist, so you never know. Thundercats was awesome, but watching it again as an adult, it was DEFINITELY for kids. We'll see! One thing is for sure, the animation won't be as good.

hmm upon watching the trailer, the quality of the animation actually surprised me. I wonder if they did the same thing they did for the original and procured Japanese animators for it.

It doesn't look too bad to me. The trailer I saw was interesting but I'm reserving judgement until I see an actual episode or two. From what I read it should be released some time in July.

But speaking of rebooting old cartoons, did you hear that they are also making a new version of Voltron? I know the original was a Japanese anime that was severely edited to become Voltron but it was still one of my favorites when I was younger, as was Thundercats. I don't know whether to be thrilled at the renewed interest in these shows or horrified by what they might do to the memories I have of those shows. I guess I'll just have to wait to see how they turn out.
