well, this is some 80's cheese at its very best. It had everything from fantasy, to sci-fi, what's not to like? Amazing manga inspired art (at the time it was astounding)and the stories we're gripping and had depth with that little lesson for kids, but not enough to ruin the show.
The dvd boxset has all of the first season, and in my opinion, the prime of Thundercats, classic episodes (opinion of mine obv!) would be, Tower of Traps, Mandora the Evil chaser, Garden of delights and so on.
New fans might not fully aprreciate the this cartoon as it is as the new Thundercats has risen and looks more upto date, but in this humble reviewers opinion, there no school like the old school. And this dvd really has withstood the test of time. The re-mastering is a bit shoddy on the odd episode with some specks and grains, but can be overlooked and make's no real baring to the enjoyment of the show. Basicaly, for the price, can you really go wrong? and for the hours of entertainment and being taken back to the 80's, classic, get stuck in there!
