* In "Song of the Petalars", the Petalars' life cycle is only 24 hours long. They were walking with the [=ThunderCats=] for almost an entire day. Which means that most of them basically spent their ''entire lives'' walking, trying to get home. [[TearJerker Some of them never do make it.]]
** Also, unless their utopia garden is *VERY* close, they'll be riding that updraft for more than a single day. Good luck trying to make baby Petalars when its one man per leaf. Their migration home may very well be an extinction event.
*** Considering they survived being blown from there into the briar patch in the first place, it must be.
*** Why don't we see any of the Petalars age if Lion-O lost Emerich for mere seconds and the next time we saw him he grew to be a man? Because they are quantum monsters, they only age when they are not observed by non-petalars!!!
*** Seeing as Petalars are plants, I don't think they need to make physical contact in order to reproduce. They just need the wind to carry their pollen.



* When you think about it Thundera was kinda like ancient China. Ancient China was greatly seperated from the rest of the world because of geographic barriers like desserts, mountains, and stuff like that. The only people who ever really came into China were nomadic in which the Chinese deemed them "barbaric" because they weren't civilized. Because of the seperation from the outside world they often thought themselves better than others until either the 1800's or 1900's(I can't remember which) I mean come on! Thundera has it's own Great Wall surrounding the city! And the third episode showed Lion-O and the others going through some heavy terain.

* For ''{{Transformers}}'' fans, "Song of the Petalars" gives you a good example of what the relationship between the Autobots and their Human Sidekicks would be like from the Cybertronians' point of view. Imagine having to defend a race of smaller and more fragile beings with a life expectancy far shorter than yours.

* Related to the above regarding Lion-O vs. Tygra. There is an actual Wikipedia article titled [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_vs._Tiger Lion vs. Tiger]]. Reading it will show that in a fight between the two, Tigers will almost always win in a straight fight. Lion-O always loses to Tygra when they fight. Tigers are just bigger, stronger, smarter, and faster. The one thing Lions have that Tigers don't though is teamwork. Lion-O always faces Tygra alone, but a large theme of the series is about Lion-O getting the other races of Third Earth to unite to fight Mumm-Ra. In contrast, [[spoiler: the Tiger clan all died partly because they refused to ask for help from Thundera. Their pride and loner mentality got them killed.]]

* Watching "Song of the Petalars" reminded me of [[TheBible The Exodus]]. Like the Israelites in Egypt, the Petalars were forced from their homeland by a natural disaster and spent generations in another land with the promise of eventually returning home. They finally set out on their journey home when a leader arises to lead them home, but it takes a full generation for them to make it there.

* Bengali hasn't been mentioned yet because [[spoiler:he was likely with Pumyra when she was killed, and given that Lion-O is seemingly a straight fellow, he'd be quite a bit less useful in attempting to get close enough, so he simply wasn't resurrected.]]



** The series would've been much shorter.

** Plus, I think the fact that he was possessing the physical form of his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grand''father'' kinda negates it.

* Here's a a nice obscure callback to the original series that most people might not catch. You know those creatures called "Thunderian Mounts" that appeared in the first two episodes? The animals that no one can identify? I have recently been reviewing episodes from the original series and I came across the episode "Return to Thundera". Where Lion-O was sent into Thundera's past and met Kano, his domesticated Thunderian pet cat from childhood. At first I didn't make the conection, but after a time I couldn't help but notice the similarity. The Thunderian Mounts ar based off of Kano form the original series! That was a brilliant move on the part of the creators of the new show.
