  • To prove himself worthy of the title Lord of the Thundercats, Lion-O must face each one of the Thundercats alone and unarmed. His first opponent is Panthro.

    I remember the Anointment Trials from my youth and I always thought this was one of the best Thundercats episodes ever.

    It's a neat concept having Lion-O prove that he is he lord of the Thundercats by having face his friends alone and unarmed. And since Lion-O must also follow a map, viewers get to see a whole lot of the landscape and dangers of Third Earth. The Vortex was really neat, and it is used again in later episodes. The Crabmen are interesting too.

    The battle between Panthro and Lion-O is great. I think it's one of the classic moments of the series, and the animation is excellent.

    This is an episode that simply cannot be missed.moreless
