Thundercat Sex Slaves

So it appears that in the future, WilyKit and WilyKat grow up to become Jabba's Mumm-ra's sex slaves. I'll be perfectly honest here... I purchased the second box set of Thundercats a few months ago... how the hell did this cartoon entertain me??!! I used to love this cartoon, but now watching it again literally bores me to tears!!!

They definitely need to put some of this sex slave stuff in should the series ever get new episodes! WilyKat sure grew into his little body there! Artists are great!

"Wilykat"? That name's just soooooo shadey!

I started reading the new Thundercats comics when they first came out.

I remember turning to that page, doing a double take, and then seeing all my childhood memories collapse around me.

I believe it's the issue after that which involves the even more disturbing image of Wilykit giving Mumraa a sponge bath!

Bobby - Yeah, I thought it was too! :-P

Elemmaciltur - I know... sounds like a rapper or something! Hehe!

Edward - I remember the really old Thundercat comics, but they were just like the cartoon... the most recent comic book I've seen was a few years back when Superman teams up with the Thundercats. I seem to have missed this particular comic series that takes place in the future though.

My childhood memories came crashing down around me when I recently rewatched some of the old cartoon episodes on DVD. Hell, I can rewatch HeMan with no problem (even though the plotlines and dialog are quite remedial), but Thundercats is another story. I was just plain bored rewatching it on DVD! I truly don't understand how I enjoyed this as a kid! Hehe!

The story in those comics was that Lion-O had been sent into some magical book to learn how to be Lord Of The Thundercats after they'd managed to get back to Thundera. The idea was that he would spend ages inside the book his time which would be a few hours in the outside world. However Mum-raa did something badass, and Lion-O didn't come back for about a decade, by which time Mum-Raa had had the chance to conquer Thundera and enslave the Thundercats.

The few Thundercats episodes I've managed to catch since my childhood have been very enjoyable (I've developed a liking for Tygra I never had as a child!), however certain other programmes I loved as a kid (such as Rainbow) are decidedly gash when rewatched in later life.

I see... hence the cute little Tygra costume. :-P

I still remember the first episode when Cheetara was naked on that spaceship.

They were all naked in that episode... But, rather bizarrely, none of them had any nipples!

Here's a nice little reminder of how they looked in that first episode.

Ah yes, curiously I'm currently in the middle of an argument over the myspace messenger on how Panthro was the least convincing black person ever!

Frank said...

Hmm... I always thought it was quite obvious that he was supposed to be black. :-P

Yes, but he was so un-ghetto, despite the effort he went to to prove otherwise.

Hilariously, I blow-dried my hair this morning (to see what would happen) and ended up looking like Lion-O (but with better volume, shine and texture!).

LOL! Lion-O looks hot though! Hell, there are times when I blow-dry my hair, I look just like Wolverine! :-P
