Lion-O, Cheetara, and the Cats travel Into the Astral Plane


Lion-O, Cheetara, and the Cats travel Into the Astral Plane

ThunderCats, check. Sword of Omens, check. Sight Beyond Sight, check. So, just where the heck is this stone they’ve been hunting for? As the crew emerges from last week’s adventure with the Wood Forgers in The Forest of Magi Oar, they return to Elephant Village only to see it has been overtaken by Grunea and Mumm-Ra’s evil forces. Seems like things couldn’t get any worse for our leader, the Lord of the ThunderCats, Lion-O — that is, until he also hears the gossipy story of how Tygra and Cheetara used to be an item. Yipes.

The episode, Into the Astral Plane, hits Cartoon Network this Friday, November 18th at 8:30pm as part of Cartoon Network’s action packed Friday nights. And, while we’re very much hoping to see the group finally claim the Spirit Stones, we’re also really intrigued by the revelation that Tygra and Cheetara may have had “a thing.”

Who knows what it could have been; maybe nothing, maybe young love. But, for years, even since the 1980s series, fan fiction writers and RPG players have been telling the love story of Lion-O and Cheetara, so it’s interesting that the folks at Warner Bros. have decided to introduce a bit of a wrinkle into that tale. A soap opera-like twist!
