Trivia: ThunderCats
  • Acting for Two: Very common on this show, due to the small voice cast. Heck, the whole cast did multiple characters at one point or another. Specifically:
    • Larry Kenney voices Lion-O and Jackalman.
    • Tygra, Wilykat and Monkian are all voiced by Peter Newman.
    • Cheetara and Wilykit are both voiced by Lynne Lipton.
    • Earle Hyman plays both Panthro and one of the Ancient Spirits of Evil.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Panthro is voiced by Earle Hyman, aka Granddad Huxtable from The Cosby Show. Makes those outtakes even more hilarious now, doesn't it?
  • The Other Darrin: Earl Hammond replaced Bob McFadden as Vultureman after a few appearances.

The following are Trivial facts relating to Thundercats.

  • ThunderCats was created in 1982, but due to difficulties it wouldn't air until 1985.
    • It was animated in Japan, Korea and partly in Europe by a small time studio faction.
    • Ironically, it never aired in Japan.
  • Some of the actors, namely Mumm-Ra's actor Earl Hammond, were radio personalities before doing the show. Which explains their over the top stylings.
