This popular 80's animated show was produced by Rankin/Bass Productions, from January 23, 1985 to 1990, for 130 episodes divided into 4 seasons.

The planet of the Thundercats, Thundera, was destroyed. The last of the Thunderans struggled to survive in space, pursued by a band of mutants. One lone ship escaped, carrying eight Thunderans. They searched for a nearby inhabitable planet, but the nearest is several years away. Jaga, their leader, commanded the small ship, while the others slept in stasis tubes for the long journey. Jaga died on their journey to Third Earth and their ship crashed on this planet.

They had allied themselves with several local groups. Panthro designed a fortress. However the mutants landed there, too, and allied themselves with the evil Mumm-Ra.

Lion-O, the new Lord of the Thundercats, with his weapon the Sword of Omens give the Thundercats a standing chance. He appears grown up, but still has the mind of a child, due to his years in stasis on the ship. Other characters include the children, Wilykit and Wilykat, Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, Jaga, and Snarf.

There are no doubts about the popularity of this TV animated show among children of the 80s, which is considered one of the top 50 of all times.
