This is one of those shows that you can't help but keep loving into adulthood. The kind of show you buy the DVDs for even though your children haven't been born yet.
The kind of show that teaches you morals and values without beating you over the head with them. The line of toys that came out were great too... hours of playing out the episodes with the ThunderCats Lair and Thundertank.
And who could forget the head evil dude of Third Earth, the chilling Mumm-Ra the Everliving. There is a favourite character for every kind of child and well written stories that kept this show at the top for two solid years.
