Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron is pretty much a done deal, so Joss Whedon can talk about the topic freely. What’s been churning in the director’s mind right now, though, is the issue of Scarlet Witch’s costume. Anyone familiar with the character’s iconic comic book costume, as well as The Avengers movie’s approach to costumes, will understand why Whedon is concerned: it’s not practical for a live action film, and might look silly within the context.

Berbils meet the ThunderCats on Cartoon Network

Berbils meet the ThunderCats tonight on Cartoon Network

It’s an awkward meeting at first: the ThunderCats have temporarily lost control of the ThunderTank, and while doing repairs and scouting for food, they encounter an amazing (both in cuteness and in curiousity) group of tiny robot bears known as the Berbils. After helping the Cats repair the ThunderTank, Robear Bill and the rest of the Berbils seek the help of Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and the rest – hoping the ThunderCats can save them from a creep who uses the cuddly robots for construction slave labor. Unfortunately for everyone involved, it doesn’t look like it will be an easy task, and the full team needs to assemble to get the job done. How’s it turn out? TOON in to Cartoon Network October 28th, at 8:30pm for the presentation of ThunderCats: Berbils.

When the modern version of Thundercats was first shown to viewers, a couple of questions seem to have bubbled to the surface; namely, Where’s Lion-O’s annoying sidekick, Snarf? And how are they gonna handle the Robot Teddy Bears? The latter was answered this week with the release of a clip from the episode “Berbils”, which will air on Cartoon Network this Friday, October 28th.

On the October 28th episode of the ThunderCats, the Berbils return, ready to interact with the ThunderCats – especially the machine-loving Panthro and his ThunderTank!
