What the- :enraged: This had better be someone's idea of a very unfunny joke.

Umm...didn't they already reboot that series once?  The original series is still the best (in all it's cheesy 80's-ness) so they just need to leave it alone.

They did and it was pretty good. This on the other hand...

I have to admit I didn't watch the last reboot--I didn't have time and I didn't make an effort (and the original was my childhood, so I didn't much want to).  But this one just looks like it's going to be terrible.

It's gonna be Teen Titans Go all over again, isn't it?. Sigh.

I was hoping this meant they were going to continue the reboot series they started back in 2011. (Why do they cancel everything good :cry:)

You ought to. It was true the spirit of the original , prettied up the artwork a bit without drastic changes and added depth to the storyline. This is pure crap, but I expect nothing less from a sucky channel like Cartoon Network who has been churning out garbage shows since day one.

Because they hate all things good.

This is just a horrendous parody of the original. Pass.
Made me think of some other reboot though, but I don't want to take over this post on the Thundercats reboot, so I'll make a new one  ;)

Wow....I didn't check out the video, but just seeing the animation style ticks me off. It's so awful! Just...I have no words.

I absolutely loved the 2011 reboot. I feel like adventure/action cartoons are really rare these days. I really despise this kind of cartoons who really try to be noisy and funny.

*Tempts to start watching the 2011 one again*

I watched part of it, until I got to the creator's pitch "I was such a huge fan of the original when growing up..." Sorry buddy, if you were, it sure doesn't reflect on the final result. There is also a very brief animatic shot of Mumra transforming... I kid you not when I say it gave off this vibe:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Lauren Faust and G1/FIM all over again. Whether she did or didn't say the things attributed to her, there is a serious problem with nostalgic mis-memory if you're involved in something like this.

The animation style is horrible. And "Roar" isn't correct. So it loses twice right off the bat. (But then I find G4 animation pretty horrible too, and that's hugely successful, so who knows?)

I never saw the 2011 reboot of Thundercats but I remember it getting good reaction. I actually loved Thundercats as a kid but tried to watch it as an adult and couldn't get the same vibe. I still love some shows from the eighties but this one I guess I outgrew the moralising :/

But that doesn't mean I want to see it trashed about.

Also, really obvious and slapsticky humour is not really that funny. At least, as a kid, I never found those shows funny. Humour is something that spins off the cuff in the right scenario. It's not something you can just impose on a show by changing the animation and goofing it up. Also, Thundercats wasn't necessarily meant to be always funny. I mean, seriously, there's some dark stuff in that show too.

Let's not forget how many incarnations the Turtles have gone through too since the eighties. There is apparently no limit on nostalgia.
