Clip: Teen Titans Go! – Halloween

Warner Bros. Animation has just released a new preview clip for the next episode of Teen Titans Go!, titled “Halloween.” The episode is scheduled to air this coming Thursday, October 30 at 6:00/5:00c on Cartoon Network.

In “Halloween,” the Titans have defiantly made it known that they’re over Halloween, prompting Raven to conjure up the Halloween Spirit in order to give them a good fright. In the clip, the Titans remember their past experiences with Halloween, most notably the ones that put them off of the occasion (capped off with Raven finally deciding to summon the Halloween Spirit). Check out the scene where the Titans are dressed as the Thundercats:

ToonBarn Interview: Thundercats Voice Actors and Writer

ToonBarn Interviews Thundercats Voice Actors and Writer, including Larry Kenney, Peter Newman, Gerrianne Raphael, and Leonard Starr

Over the last few weeks, I have been really lucky to have connected with some of the main players in the Original Thundercats series that aired from 1985-1989. In the 80’s, Thundercats was so popular that it had become the #1 rated cartoon in over 30 television markets in the United States.

Recently, Thundercats was re-booted as a new series, with different animation, different writers, and different voice actors, for the Cartoon Network. This resurgence of interest in Thundercats would never have occurred if it hadn’t been for the huge impact that was attributed to each of the people we will be talking about in this article.

The first 3 people I interviewed at RetroCon were the original voice actors for characters like Lion-O, Tygra, and Pumyra, but friends know them as Larry Kenney, Peter Newman, and Gerrianne Raphael.  The 4th person we will have is the Head Writer and Developer of the Series Bible, Leonard Starr. This portion was not a video interview, but a text interview that we were permitted to re-print for you here.

RetroCon Debuts With Thundercats Voice Actors

RetroCon Logo

RetroCon: a toy and nostalgia-oriented convention in south-east Pennsylvania, debuted for the first time on Veterans Day, November 11, 2012, to huge crowds at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

RetroCon focused mainly around classic toys of the 80’s, but also spotlighted were the movies, the video games, the cartoons, the fads… you get the idea. It’s all Retro!

RetroCon was a major toy show with lots of fun, a Back To the Future Delorean for fans to check out, a costume contest, a display of replica movie/cartoon props, several retro arcade games, and more!

Nintendo DS Gets a ThunderCats Game

Nintendo DS Gets a ThunderCats Game

There will be a new game based on Cartoon Network’s modern update of the Thundercats, as developer Aspect Digital (of Naruto: Ninja Council) and Namco Bandai are currently working (or has finished working) on a new Thundercats game for the Nintendo DS.

Note that the game is for the Nintendo DS, instead of Nintendo’s newer 3DS. On the one hand, it means that the graphics will probably not meet current gen standards, as the DS is nowhere near as capable as the 3DS or even the PSP, but on the other hand, it is still good news because it means the title will be available to a broader range of audience, due to the fact that a lot of gamers have held on to their DS while the 3DS users will still be able to play the game due to the handheld’s backwards compatibility.
