Thundercat Redesigns

Just for fun, so, Purists; don’t get your knickers in a twist.
I thought I’d make ‘em look a bit more “catty”…..or, in Mumm Ra’s case; scary.

Thundercats .. HOooooo!

I'd have made Tigra a nerdy bookish-looking sort, myself. At least then he would have a personality. Then again, the purists would complain that his total lack of personality WAS his personality.

I like your version.
They look more like the evolved into a humanoid form from cats, then a Broadway musical extra.

Mumm-ra needs a schoolgirl.

...Whaaat? He has friggin' tentacles! Bandage tentacles, but still tentacles!

What no Wiley Kit or Wiley Kat? and where's Snarf... if anyone deserves a redesign it'd be him...

overall nice looking sketches and since I'm hardly a purist it's all good.

Although thinking about it..the cartoon is over 20 years old.. time for an update.. Phil Jackson style!

Snarf was neat in the movie, when he was going all Sir Didymus on the mutants. They completely screwed up his personality after that, though, turning him into an idiot coward. The voice and appearance were already two strikes against him/her/it, and the "Candyfruit Dance" made Snarf even more awful than Scrappy-Doo. Really, that's one cat-snake-Jerry Garcia crossbreed that's better off forgotten.

Wileykat and Wileykit were actually skipped over in a lot of episodes, which is sad, because at least they were funny. But no, Snarf was the token cute character, so he got all the screen time, plot exposition, and an even MORE irritating sidekick. Ugh, I get annoyed just thinking about it.

I was a little disappointed about no Wiley Kat or Kit either, but with your track record, Jack, I'm not sure how I'd feel about seeing Kat (or is it Kit?) with a rack the size of her head. I prefer not to think of under-aged characters that way.

[Psst! There is a Snarf drawing from PMJ...I'm just not telling where it is if you haven't seen it. >>;]

Awesome redesigns. Nice work - i'd love to see those actually used in an update. They'd make great action figures too.
