Hey old school show fans I have some good news for you! Hulu now has ThunderCats and ThunderCats 2011 on the platform.
They are offering all 130 episodes of the original ThunderCats that ran from 1985-1989.
Here’s the synopsis from Wikipedia:
“ThunderCats follows the adventures of the eponymous team of heroes, cat-like humanoid aliens on a planet called Third Earth. … When the ThunderCats awake from their suspended animation on Third Earth after ten “galacto-years,” Lion-O discovers that his suspension capsule has slowed, rather than stopped, his aging.”
Then in 2011 Cartoon Network brought it back with beautiful anime style art, but it only got a 26 episode run.
Wikipedia offers this synopsis:
“Following the destruction of their home, the kingdom of Thundera, the ThunderCats (a group of humanoid felidaes) are forced to roam the planet Third Earth, in order to find a way to defeat the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, who plans on taking over the universe. Story-wise the series attempts to take a much darker and more cinematic approach than the original show, featuring a lot more focus on characterization and more sophisticated themes.“
I’m surprised that these didn’t end up on HBOMax, but as it turns out the Disney run Hulu has them on there! Since the 2011 one was Cartoon Network I really thought it would be something that Warner Media kept on their own service. Super excited to see them on Hulu though.
A lot of people are going to be excited because they didn’t get to see one or both of these and now they can.
Did you grow up with one of these versions of the show?
