What can I say, it's pretty cool that in an hour you can throw something down and share in a profound way. I just dropped another ThunderCats pic for fun. Check it out. One thing I'd love to see is a special designation for a search that showcases others Muro drawings. Maybe I'm just inept, but I tried looking and didn't come across much. I'm gonna pump this Muro thing up as I do more how I draw segments and keep playing with this fun program! Thanks again DA for the ride!

I know it doesn't really matter in the long run, but i have to say, Dan, i'm not sure i care for the direction you guys were going for with the show. The info about Snarf i could deal with, but the info about Slithe, Pumyra and Lynx-O; it just didn't work for me. Maybe this is just me lashing out because these predestined ideas go against my own fanon timeline, but i still felt that i had to get it out of the way for my own peace of mind. It just seems sad that Lion-O doesn't get a happy ending with the Pumyra thing

Like i said, i was most likely just lashing out due to the fact that these ideas torpedoed my own. I'm told that, if it makes me feel better, i should continue with my fanon ideas and only see them as the true canon, but that just screams "in denial", especially since i've heard some very good points from the Norton man himself regarding the true canon.

I get the sentiment. I'm actually in the opposite position for once, so I'm dang happy.  this stuff is exactly what I would have wanted to see (With the correct prefacing of course) but would hardly dare to have hoped. Some unconventional lessons being told.  And something I'd always wanted to happen in the old show (when I was a little girl) kind of gets to happen... If Mumrana had showed up as an Incan coya little ubernerd Eight-year-old me could die happy.  So yeah. I usually feel how you feel 75% of the time with other things on tv.... I'm such a hipster.

I totally understand your concerns on what we were planning. Bear in mind however, you aren't getting the context to how you'd be getting this information and where it lays in the storyline, so it would be hard to delineate for anyone just how it was going to play. This is why I wanted to deliver the reveals in a podcast where I could go step by step. What I put out there in the panel at Power Con was just the tip of the ice burg. Quite frankly, nobody wants to hear about characters getting killed off, but for what the pay off was and in our restrictions to how many people we can animate at a time, we just couldn't have a final battle with 100 characters running around. We'd have to give resolution to characters that are fitting in a war setting of epic proportions. Oh and trust me when I say, there is a happy ending.

As a artist and writer, especially when you're contributing to something you love, it's hard to always get a story just the way you want it. That is multiplied by a thousand when you're working collaboratively. Multiply again to deal with public opinion and desire. I have been a ThunderCats fan since I was 12 and it compelled me to become not only an artist but to fight for over a decade to bring it out of the closet to get the love it deserves. Some may believe I was not the man for the job, I will argue that point till I'm dead. Partially because of the 20 some years that professionals of all kinds attempted to bring it back and part due to the dedication I gave to this property. I'm not saying the team and I didn't make some mistakes, but I'm sure nobody could have done it better.

Mkay, big fan.  Love a show that makes me think.  Gotta know though, this has been bugging me to no end, and I'm about 95% sure this is just a cosmic coincidence, buuuut.  Did Addicus kill a mockingbird?

Dan, I watched the panel where you guys were talking about Thundercats 2011 at Powercon 2013.  I was just so blown away by the process and the time and effort you all put into the show.  It was so incredible, I wish it wasn't canceled but what you were able to provide, I thank you so much!

I look forward to anything further that can be revealed about the intention of the series.  I know that it's driving some of us Thundercats fans crazy not having the rest to enjoy and are writing their own scripts to sooth the curiosity and sudden disconnection to the show.

I'm going to do a few podcasts to reveal the entire plot that wasn't gotten to in a story context so it falls into place. Trust me, I want to give everyone closure. It's important! I'm glad you enjoyed the intel!! Oh and thanks for watching the show!

That would be wonderful. I watched the panel online as well and it had me drooling for more. It all sounded amazing, the origin of Snarf to Lynx-O and Slythe's history. I loved it all.

I was able to get my 5,6, and 8 year old cousins into the show and buying merchandise, but it was too little too late. I have the DVDs and they still beg me to bring them whenever I visit. They spent all last weekend calling themselves Kit and Kat and pick-pocketing the family. 

It was an absolutely amazing show and I thank you for all the hard work that was clearly put into it.
