On the next episode of ThunderCats, we get the 2nd part of The Trials of Lion-O, in which the ThunderCats (minus Lion-O) find themselves trapped in Mumm-Ra’s Pyramid. Believing that Lion-O is dead, the cats try to escape and prevent Mumm-Ra from acquiring the Eye of Thundera, which is still embedded in the sword.
There’s a couple of preview clips below to whet your appetites:
The first clip shows Lion-O failing a trial, in which he has to defeat Tygra. Lion-O failed because it seems that the ThunderCat still doubts his own capabilities, believing that Tygra is still the better choice to lead as king. Pleading with Jaga for a chance to save his friends, Lion-O is granted an extension until sunrise.
The second clip shows the remaining cats, under the mistaken belief that Lion-O is already dead, launch a valiant, but ultimately failed attempt at preventing Mumm-Ra from extracting the eye of Thundera.
Can Lion-O make it in time to save his friends? Tune in this Saturday at 9AM, on Cartoon Network.
