Cartoon Network quietly debuts first ThunderCats Roar episodes


Nearly two years after its controversial unveiling, Cartoon Network has finally let the new ThunderCats animated series out of the bag. The first two episodes of Thundercats Roar were made available on the Cartoon Network app and related video-on-demand services on January 10th. The show will make its linear debut in February.

A comedic reinterpretation of the classic ’80s action series, ThunderCats Roar is produced by Warner Bros. Animation in conjunction with Cartoon Network. Canadian broadcaster Corus Entertainment acquired the show for its Teletoon channel and lists the first season as encompassing 52 eleven-minute episodes. The show is led by Victor Courtright with Marly Halpern-Graser also on board as producer and features the prolific Sam Register as an executive.

ThunderCats Roar features an all new voice cast from what older fans are used to. Max Mittelman is now Lion-O, Chris Jai Alex is Panthro, Patrick Seitz voices Tygra and Erica Lindbeck provides the voice for Cheetara. Long time fans might be happy to hear that Larry Kenney, the original voice of Lion-O, is playing the wise Jaga.
