ThunderCats, the high-octane animated television series of the '80s, holds a cherished spot in the hearts of many fans and has etched its place in pop culture history. Produced by Rankin/Bass Productions, the show centered around a group of humanoid cats who, following the destruction of their home planet Thundera, find themselves on the mysterious, third-Earth.

The iconic character designs and memorable catchphrases have found their way into an array of merchandise, from action figures to comic books, keeping the spirit of ThunderCats alive well beyond its original run.

Moreover, ThunderCats has seen a resurgence in the 21st century, with a rebooted series in 2011 and another, more comedic interpretation, "ThunderCats Roar," in 2020.
