Y’know, as a 90′s kid, I’ve found that Thundercats is actually really well known among the generation thanks to the Toonami reruns.
Calling it a long-lasting cult hit is still pretty laughable, though.
I second that – I’m 23 and my brother’s 20, and we both watched thundercats on Cartoon Network when we were kids.
As a kid who grow up with Toonami, I can tell you that EVERYONE I knew watched Thundercats as kids. Cartoon Network kept it on for quite a long time, even after it’s Toonami removal, and the DVD sales were very high.
This comic is just blatantly offensive to my generation. He’s a boy who grew up in the 90s, therefore he watched Toonami everyday religiously no matter what they were showing him. Just how it worked.
More true in the UK than the US perhaps; in the UK Thundercats is well known enough to have standup comics make jokes about it.
I can’t help but laugh as well. Even though I enjoyed the thundercats at the time. Something about being a hanna barbara property kept the dvd sets unappealing.
Its really robot chicken and family guy skits that even keeps the show as a pop culture foot note in the US.
Thundercats wasn’t by Hannah Barbera.
