Chronology
Preceded byThunderCats

ThunderCats Roar is an American animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation for Cartoon Network that premiered on February 22, 2020.[1] It is the third television series in the ThunderCats franchise after the original series and the 2011 television series. It is Jules Bass's first solo work without his partner Arthur Rankin Jr., who died on January 30, 2014. The show's premise is similar to the original series; in which the ThunderCats escape their dying homeworld Thundera, crash-land on Third Earth, and face off against various villains led by the evil overlord Mumm-Ra. Like Teen Titans Go!, ThunderCats Roar sports a more light-hearted, comedic tone than previous incarnations. The show ended on December 5, 2020, being cancelled after just one season.

Premise

Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, WilyKit and WilyKat barely escape the sudden destruction of their homeworld, Thundera, only to crash-land on the mysterious and exotic planet of Third Earth. Lion-O, the newly appointed Lord of the ThunderCats, attempts to lead the team as they make this planet their new home. A bizarre host of creatures and villains stand in their way, including the evil Mumm-Ra, Third Earth's wicked ruler who will let nothing, including the ThunderCats, stop his tyrannical reign over the planet.

Characters

ThunderCats

  • Lion-O (voiced by Max Mittelman) – A lion-themed Thunderian and the newly crowned leader of the ThunderCats who still acts like a child. In this adaption, he has a twin sister named Lion-S who is a wanted criminal.
  • Tygra (voiced by Patrick Seitz) – A tiger-themed Thunderian who is the serious and most mature member of the team. He's a bit of a clean freak and the target of most jokes throughout the show.
  • Cheetara (voiced by Erica Lindbeck) – A cheetah-themed Thunderian who is the fastest member of the team and a professional athlete.
  • Panthro (voiced by Chris Jai Alex) – A panther-themed Thunderian who is the strongest and smartest member of the team.
  • WilyKit (voiced by Erica Lindbeck) – A wildcat-themed Thunderian, one half of the ThunderKittens, and WilyKat's fraternal twin sister. She is a tomboy obsessed with fighting and fun in this incarnation.
  • WilyKat (voiced by Max Mittelman) – A wildcat-themed Thunderian, one half of the ThunderKittens, and WilyKit's fraternal twin brother. He is the more mature twin, armed with chemical capsules in this incarnation.
  • Snarf (voiced by Victor Courtright) – The team's mascot and Lion-O's pet. In this show, Snarf is depicted as a robot animal and possibly the smartest of the ThunderCats.
  • Jaga (voiced by Larry Kenney) – A jaguar-themed Thunderian who is the ThunderCats' deceased mentor and the narrator for the series' pilot episode. He later got free from the Astral Plane so he could tell the ThunderCats about Thundera's destruction after his battle with Ratar-O and the Sword of Plun-Darr. In this incarnation, Jaga is indirectly responsible for both the destruction of Thundera and his own death because he threw the Sword of Plun-Darr into Thundera's core in an attempt to dispose of it.

Villains

  • Mumm-Ra (voiced by Patrick Seitz) – A mummy sorcerer and the main antagonist of the series. He enslaved Third Earth for centuries before the ThunderCats de-powered him at the end of "Exodus: Part 2" by breaking his staff. He now tries every chance he gets to regain his full might, using various artifacts, the Ancient Spirits of Evil, and a shady alliance with the Mutants to do it.
  • Mutants – A group of creatures from the planet Plun-Darr who become allied with Mumm-Ra.
    • Slithe (voiced by Trevor Devall) – The leader of the Mutants who resembles an overweight lizard man with sharp fangs.
    • Jackalman (voiced by Andrew Kishino) – The hyperactive and most dimwitted member of the Mutants who resembles a humanoid jackal.
    • Monkian (voiced by Jim Meskimen) – The physically-strongest member of the Mutants who resembles a humanoid white ape and likes smashing and bashing.
    • Vultureman (voiced by Dana Snyder) – The Mutants' resident tech-geek and pilot who resembles a humanoid vulture. He once tried to plagiarize one of Panthro's inventions and nearly got killed for it.
    • Ratar-O (voiced by Crispin Freeman) – The rat-like ruler of the Mutants who faced Jaga some years before Thundera exploded. While in space, Ratar-O reclaimed the Sword of Plun-Darr and plans to come after the ThunderCats.
  • Ancient Spirits of Evil (voiced by Chris Jai Alex) – A group of evil spirits who transform Mumm-Ra into Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living. They are far less intelligent than in the previous adaptions and their statues are activated by a plug.
  • Driller (voiced by Stephen Tobolowsky) – A drill-themed robotic villain who must constantly drill for diamonds in order to power his drill to keep drilling for diamonds. Unlike the original series, he becomes an ally of the ThunderCats.
  • Molly Lava (voiced by Kaitlyn Robrock) – An evil space criminal from the episode "Mandora – The Evil Chaser" who turns from a cute little gem rock into a lava monster when she jumps into a volcano. Mandora is in pursuit of her when Lion-O inadvertently releases her from prison, but she is eventually defeated and re-imprisoned by Lion-O and Mandora at the end.
  • Berserkers – A group of cybernetic Viking-like pirates that will do any service for gold.
    • Hammerhead (voiced by Trevor Devall) – The captain of the Berserkers who has a cybernetic arm that can punch and pound with great force.

    • Ram Bam (voiced by Dana Snyder) – A member of the Berserkers who rolls by the wheel embedded in his chest at high speeds to smash through objects like a battering ram.
    • Cruncher (voiced by Chris Jai Alex) – A hulking member of the Berserkers whose sheer strength can crush buildings and boulders with ease.
  • Safari Joe (voiced by Trevor Devall) – An intergalactic big-game hunter.
  • Lion-S (voiced by Laila Berzins) – A lion-themed Thunderian and a wanted criminal. Lion-O saw her as a kindred spirit due to their different sword tricks until he learned about her criminal past. At the end of "Claudus", it was revealed that she is Lion-O's twin sister implying she was actually a princess who rebelled against the other Thunderians in the past sometime before Thundera exploded.
  • Spidera – The queen of the spiders who appeared in the episode "Schnorp".
  • The Lunataks – A group of six oni-like creatures who appear in the episode "The Space Beam".
    • Luna (voiced by Kaitlyn Robrock) – The leader of the Lunataks.
  • Mongor (voiced by Andrew Morgado) – A goat-like demon that feeds off fear.
  • Swampy Johnny (voiced by Robbie Daymond) – An aquatic Elvis Presley-like villain who is pursued by the Terrators, whose homeworld was flooded by him. He comes dangerously close to doing the same with Third Earth. Cheetara developed a crush on him before learning of his true colors.
  • Eclipsorr – The CEO of the Eclipsor Corporation, an amoral company that wants to steal the energy of Third Earth's sun and sell it for a profit.

  • Mandora the Evil-Chaser (voiced by Erica Lindbeck) – An intergalactic police officer of the universe who would often be annoyed with Lion-O's incompetence.

Part 1: After the destruction of their home planet Thundera, the titular ThunderCats fly off to a new home, only to crash land on Third Earth after being shot down by their arch-enemies the Mutants. Following a scuffle with the Mutants, Lion-O pursues them into the wild while the rest of the ThunderCats meet the Berbils whose village their ship unknowingly destroyed in the crash. Luckily, the Berbils are quick builders and opt to build their base while warning them of Mumm-Ra. Lion-O ends up encountering Mumm-Ra when chased by the Mutants to the villain's pyramid, with Mumm-Ra destroying the Mutants' ship before returning to his lair.
Part 2: Lion-O enters the pyramid to thank Mumm-Ra, only to learn he is evil while revealing the presence of the other ThunderCats on Third Earth. Mumm-Ra, explaining his Doomstaff grants him power while establishing a curse where anyone who says his name is struck by lightning, chains Lion-O up and uses a portal to attack the ThunderCats' new home. Mumm-Ra makes short work of the team despite their resistance, with Lion-O and Snarf arriving too late. Things seemed hopeless until Mumm-Ra unintentionally praised the Berbils as they hug him with his own curse used against him, enabling the ThunderCats to break free with Lion-O destroying Mumm-Ra's staff. Mumm-Ra, reverted to his natural form, escapes and Lion-O promises to stay with his team and lead them to victory.

Reception

ThunderCats Roar's announcement was met with backlash from fans of the original series and its 2011 reboot. On Cartoon Network's YouTube channel, promotional videos for the series have received a large number of dislikes. The series was panned by critics and audience for its art style, characterizations and comedic tone, drawing unfavorable comparisons to Teen Titans Go!.[37]

In a positive review, Reuben Baron of Comic Book Resources says "ThunderCats Roar knows what it wants to be, and a few pacing quibbles aside, it does it well."[38]
