Synopsis

Entering its second season as the top-rated animated half-hour series in daily strip syndication, ThunderCats supplies its fans with 65 new adventures pitting the super-powered feline-like protagonists against the monstrous minions of Mumm-Ra -- and, as usual, shamelessly promotes the multitude of Thundercat toys and action figures churned out by Leisure Concepts, Inc. This season offers quite a few multi-part stories, all of them eminently adaptable as two hour "specials" , beginning with the five-part opener ThunderCats Ho!, which introduces several new good-guy characters: Pumyra the female puma, Bengali the white tiger, and Lynxo the blind lynx, all transformed into full-fledged ThunderCats by group leader Lion-O. This is followed by another five-parter, "Mumm-Ra Lives," wherein the titular villain, presumably destroyed in the previous adventures, returns for more deviltry with the help of his powerful alter ego Ma-Mutt and a race known as the Luna-Tacks. In the process, viewers are introduced to another new Thundercat: Snarfer, the nephew of longtime regular Snarf. Twenty individual, self-contained episodes go by before the next five-part escapade, "ThunderCubs," which finds Panthro, Cheetara, Tygra, Snarf, and Snarfer regressing to childhood while passing through the Canyons of Youth on New Thundera. Then, it's 15 additional "single" episodes before viewers are treated to the five-part "Return to Thundera, in which the Thundercats make a return trip to their earthquake-shattered (but still amazingly intact) home planet. The 130th and final episode, "The Book of Omens," boils down to the ultimate showdown between Lion-O and Mumm-Ra -- with neither opponent utilizing the magic powers that are traditionally at their disposal. ~ Hal Erickson
