Will Cartoon Network’s Thundercats go Snarfless
When Cartoon Network first became a mainstream powerhouse a few years back, it was famous for airing toons a decade or two off the air. This included many classics, and cult classics, from the 80s and 90s, like Voltron, G.I. Joe, Transformers and more. One such toon, apparently, had such a major impact on creators and producers that they’re deep into development of reviving the franchise. In other words, get ready for more Thundercats. Feel the magic, feel the roar, Thundercats are loose; that is, the mutant cat super team of Lion-O, Cheetara, Panthro, Tygra, WilyKit and WilyKat. While the team had some “guest visitors” like Jaga, and eventually expanded to include Lynx-O and a few others, there was also one prominent member of the team, Snarf, who added much of the comical silliness. As the new Studio4C toon plans a “darker, more mature” feel, what would happen to Lion-O’s little friend?
He’ll be around, producer Michael Jelenic tells MTV, adding “he will not talk. Don’t worry. He won’t be going, ‘Lion-O, why don’t you do this?'” said Jelenic, imitating the character’s familiar whine. “We just having him say, ‘Snarf! Snarf!’ That’s a way to get him in the show without annoying every single person who hates him. It’s funny, because people are always like, ‘I hate Snarf! Wait. you’re not going to put him in? That’s terrible!'”
What’s your take on “Snarf-Gate”? Think he should be in the show, or not?
Spot him in the old intro?
