    I'm typically not a fan of these comedic reboots, but after watching the "sneak peek", I think this looks quite promising, at least judging by the art style, animation, and the enthusiasm of the producer when discussing it. I won't form any further judgments until we get an actual sneak peek of the show itself.

    The show sounds interesting and good but I find the art style to be very unappealing. These were my exact same thoughts when I first heard about Be Cool Scooby Doo too and I ended up being a huge fan of the show, so the same might happen with this new Thundercats show.

    Remember when Cartoon Network funded shows that didn't feature round overly simplified designs?

    I was never into Thundercats, so I can't exactly give a good opinion here. People have said the art style closest resembles OK KO, which seems to be true. This doesn't really bode too well for the property, but it's not it was the most dignified property to begin with.

    So this is why "ThunderCats" was trending on Twitter...

    I was actually relieved to see those designs. Finally there is going to be a ThunderCats property I won't want to own toys from. My budget couldn't take it.

    The show looks awful.

    I may not be a fan of a both Thundercats, but I have to be honest, the art style looks juvenile, it’s hard for me to see this as anything appealing, I wouldn’t be surprised if this will be similar to how TTG went.

    Judging from the trailer, I guess this looks...okay? Nothing mindblowing though.

    But seriously, I'm starting to get tired of the CalArts trend. All of CN's current shows already use that same type of art style (excluding TTG, Unikitty, Apple & Onion, and Mighty Magiswords). We need a variety for once.

    Well, I'm willing to give this a chance, despite all the backlash it might receive.

    It's from WB Animation, but point taken.

    I was afraid to read this...

    WHO IN CARTOON NETWORK BELIEVED THAT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA !?

    This wasn't Cartoon Network's decision, it's Warner Bros., They're the ones making this show.

    Well Cartoon Network's funding it, so WB made decisions that would get CN interested in buying it.

    And just like The Emoji Movie, this thing is already hated by a lot of people. It got a lot of dislikes that Warner Bros. unlisted the video.

    I would've called this Thundercats Meow, just to be honest with people.

    Is it too much to ask to get Warner Brothers to do a legit ThunderCats adaption? None of the comedy stuff or anime quest nonsense? Is that too much to ask?
