Does it still hold up? I keep buying all these 80s cartoon dvds and end up not watching them!

Went back to this last year. Is it as cool and deep as when I was young? No, not really. I probably should not have went back to it.

Is it better than 95% of the cartoons now on tv? Yes. It a nice action packed series, which wasn't effected by the PC Police.

If I get a kid some day, I would try to get them into it. Also have all the characters and the thundertank in action figures, so it might spark.

About comparing this to Dungeons and Dragons. Well, it's clear that D&D has stand the test of time much better.

I recently got the D&D set - to watch with my kids. It was good enough to see them, but when you see how sparse the animation is by today's "visually richer" cartoon standards (i.e. no shading, proper lighting effects, limited/bad shadows, no "depth", etc.) they somewhat lose their previous allure. The nostalgia is there for the fantasy of childhood and the stories, but the adult eye is more based in reality and thus the criticisms creep in regarding the quality of the visuals... Nevertheless, I still enjoy Ulysses31 (my fave) and have yet to go through ThunderCats and G-Force....

Re-watched a lot of old 80s series cartoons. Some hold up better than others. Some, the appeal of re-watching is there so long as you don't go too young, i.e. Thundercats and D&D are good, but Duck Tales and Chip 'N Dale are too basic in storyline.

However, today's cartoons are a lot more sophisticated. Some are really good like Yu-Gi-Oh. There are those that say they don't make them as good as they used to - these people have the same opinion about computer games. But in reality, we have greater enthusiasm about things when we are all young.

Definately worth purchasing from a blast-from-the-past perspective!

It's interesting the different perspectives on what's exciting for kids.

I got this for my 5 year old boy thinking he'd love it as much as the 8 year old me did years ago.
It still seems really good to me, far better than the cack pumped out now.
But whether through peer pressure of no-one at school knowing what the hell a thunder cat is or just kids today are different, he's just not fussed about it.

My suspicion is that if the shops were full of liono action figures he'd think it was superb.

This has only been said once so far in this thread so I feel it's about time it was mentioned again....
Thunder, thunder, thunder, thundercats HO!

Thundercats intro

This one is worth watching - Family Guy - real voices of Cheetah-R and Lion-O

I think some people look at whether the cartoons hold up based on graphics and special effects, inwhich case anything in the past including Tom and Jerry etc all don't hold up.

I guess I measure it by how much I enjoyed it, the stories, how much I wanted to be one of the characters, and the moral values. In my view they hold up really well.

Ulysses is so grim! (in a good way). I wish that it was still in print (and not £100+ on ebay).
