    Thundercats Roar is worse than even expected.

    The first episode is streaming on Demand on comcast.

    The character designs are just plain ugly. They look like crude quickly drawn doodles. I mean, I didn't care for the changes in the She-Ra reboot but at least they put some actual effort into the designs and the backgrounds were lovely. Thundercats Roar is an absolute eyesore. It's ugly, the characters are all imbeciles and turning Snarf into a swiss army knife robot makes no sense. Same with Mumm-Ra being Godzilla sized. Makes no sense. You would think it's some kind a cheap youtube parody but it's the actual series. Good grief this is bad. I really can't grasp how this got the green light. I cannot imagine the Thundercats property surviving this. It's that bad.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I'm sorry, I think I know how much that hurts you. I've always though the original Thundercats designs were great.

    I am not exaggerating on how ugly this is. This is an actual screen grab.

    It's like hipster "irony" being made into a cartoon.

    I am glad I will NEVER have to see that version. I loved the original and even the reboot was good and wanted to include other cartoons but this I will not support.

    Cartoon Network has its head so far up it's butt it can see it's own tonsils. WB has had absolutely no idea how to do anything with their properties for the better part of the decade.

    This is just awful. Why even call this Thundercats?

    I just watched the intro for the 80's GI Joe cartoon and was amazed at how much more impressive the animation was then compared to most of the cartoons today. The current cartoons look like doodles that I would have been embarrassed to have on my notebook in school! I don't understand how such an ugly animation style became the current standard. The new Thundercats looks terrible.

    Umm...I can't even tell you which character that's supposed to be. The red hair...NO...it can't possibly be Lion-O.
