I just inherited this Day Thread last night, and I’ve got nothing, so here you go, the 1985 Thundercats, ranked from worst to best.
Look, I feel bad for Snarf, I do. Being the defunct caregiver to a 12-year-old lion-boy in a lion-man’s body can’t be easy. He’s still annoying as fuck though.
Meh. Even as a little kid, I knew WileyKat and Wiley Kit mostly existed to get into trouble and require rescuing.
She’s a little more fun than WileyKat and lacks his absurd sideburns, so she outranks him. Plus, check out that rad 80s armband and off-the-shoulder tunic. Stylin’.
His backstory’s actually kinda neat (prepubescent child-lion prematurely aged during space travel). Unfortunately, he’s still a 12 year old at heart, and a bit of a twerp. Plus his sword does all the work . . . growing progressively bigger between his clenched fists as he shouts, “Ho!” Oh dear.
Tygra’s pretty cool (remember that one time he tripped balls?). He’s just not as cool as the next two.
Panthro should probably be #1 — badass fighter dressed like a Road Warrior extra who drives around in a tank he built himself? GOAT. — but no self-respecting 80s girl puts Panthro in the top spot when there’s . . .
Oh hey, the Warrior Maidens. They were cool.
Synth-organic robot bears? Sure. Why not?
A dude in a mechanical frog suit protecting the plug at the bottom of the ocean? God 80s cartoons were weird.
Anyway, have a Day Thread beyond Day Thread, everyone!
