The New Thundercats:

Are those tails on the Thunderkittens? Weird that they have them and the adults don't.

Anyone else smell a Very Special Episode dealing with a thinly-veiled circumcision metaphor?

Or they're some sort of ceremony where adults have their tails cut because they get in the way during a fight.
I have a message from another time...

THAAAAAAT Big???!!!
Slithe is a bit too fat for my liking. I was hoping for the Mutants to get a threat level upgrade, but this doesn't forebode well. Not to insult any big boned real life people, but we know how it most often goes in fiction.

Time to roll the dice
[up][up]I'm hoping that those were just early designs, like at one point they thought of giving them all tails and just scrapped it. Or maybe the tails gradually shrink as they get older. I guess we'll see. I do kind of like how the tails looks though.

I'm happy with the way Slith looks. It doesn't deviate too much. I'm interested in seeing the more feral Jackal Man and winged Vulture Man now. No word on Monkian though.

Sometime during the Hall of Game Awards. They had a clip from the new Looney Tunes show too.

That's what I get for sticking to my principles. I boycotted that whole thing; didn't pop in until Regular Show.

Animation looks great from what I could make out. Then again, they probably took the best-looking clips for the trailer.

Okay, I read it was shown in the Hall of Game After Party, which shows right before Regular Show. If you get CN West you can probably still catch it.

Watching taped Smackdown; I'll have to think about it. Although Vickie is making a solid case to watch the after party.

Pretty sure it's aliens
Anybody else get an Avatar: The Last Airbender vibe from watching that? Maybe it's the music...

EDIT: And (slightly) higher quality video has surfaced

Don't call me Hikaru.
Huh. At first I though "standard 'epic' trailer" that is non-indicative of actual content, although I warmed up to it a bit by the end. Still don't have a clue how the series will turn out.

I really hope that's not the case. Like you said, it looked great, but a lot of it was dramatic pans on static or semi-static images. None of the actual animated bits looked terribly impressive or ambitious. That said, nothing really looked ugly either, so I'm hoping the actual series manages to clear the bar set by stuff like Avatar, Young Justice and Sym-Bionic Titan.

I touched myself after seeing the trailer.

Is it supposed to air on Adult Swim? They were talking about it on their last night. They said it would start in July.

[up]I doubt it would air on [as] since it's being advertised as being on CN. Unless of course they mean airing the original T Cats, which would really be better on Boomerang. It would be cool if Boomerang did start airing classic episodes. It's entirely possible.

I saw the SilverHawks intro earlier and thought it would be pretty rad if they got a cameo in the new ThunderCats show. They wouldn't be that out of place.

[up]Hmmm... it would be interesting if this resulted in a revival of Silverhawks and Tigersharks as well... or at least a DVD release (even though both shows were basically B-grade knock-offs of Thundercats)

Well, when it comes to animation, Studio 4C can and have done some pretty boss stuff, but we'll probably have to wait and see.

[up][up]Silverhawks was already released to DVD, but a real revival would be cool. I never saw Tiger Sharks, and I imagine the chances of seeing them again are even less likely. It would be damn cool to get updates on the designs like Thundercats did, and get an awesome crossover of the three Rankin-Bass action shows that really should have been done back when they were popular.

[up]I think all the clips we saw were likely just from the first and maybe second episode. I can sort of see the 4C style in the animations, which is really going to help this show stand out from the rest on CN. I have to wonder if we can really count this as Western animation, but I don't want to get into that debate.
If the writing and story is still done by westerners, I'd say it's western. I mean, it's not like outsourcing animation to Asia is a new thing. Still, yes, we'd better leave that discussion for another thread.

Nah, they were definitely talking about the new Thundercats, because near the end of the bump (or whatever the black screen/white text things they do are called) the brought up a blank DVD case refering to it as "Here's the DVD case for this series which isn't on DVD yet" or something like that.

It's kind of odd that they're promoting a show (an anime, no less) that won't even be on Adult Swim...

Tiger Sharks wasn't even its own show. It was one of the segments in some compilation show. I forget the title of the whole thing, but one of other segments was a Hong Kong Phooey ripoff called "Karate Kat."

I believe it was called The Comic Strip, or something like that. Rankin-Bass probably should have given it a better opening theme song. It's kind of a let down after how awesome the previous two shows openings were.

I wonder what the deal is with the enslaved lizardmen. My best guess is that Grune may be forcing them to mine thundrillium in secret while he plans his rebellion. At least it gives Slithe a reason to be pissed at the Thundercats.

I think you're absolutely right. The Comic Strip. That sounds familiar.
Moldova, never change.
According to this, Dante Basco is going to voice one of the characters.
