Episode Summary

Mumm-Ra creates a device that can make Panthro clones. He embeds the spirit of Hammerhand into his clone and sets it free to destroy Third Earth. The planet's inhabitants blame the Thundercats for the terror because they think its the real Panthro destroying their villages and burning their crops. The real Panthro finally encounters his clone and, with the help of Lion-O, manages to destroy it. Enraged about his defeat, Hammerhand destroys Mumm-Ra's cloning device.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Hammerhand appeared as a dead spirit who took possession of the cloned body of Panthro. But he previously appeared in The Terror of Hammerhand as a living person and would later appear again as a living person in season 2.

      • Goof: When the Driller knocked Panthro out and pulled him into the tunnel he dug to take him to Mumm-Ra, Panthro was wearing nothing except the belt and boots he wore in Exodus before being clothed by Jaga. But in the following scene as he laid unconscious before Mumm-Ra, he was fully dressed in his ThunderCat clothes.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Cheetara: Hey, imagine what would happen if one of us really did turn bad.
        Panthro: We just have to make sure we never do.
        Tygra: That's right, Panthro. The ThunderCat power gives us extra responsibility.
        Lion-O: One thing's for sure. (to Panthro) I'm glad you're one of the good guys.

      • Lion-O: How can I help you, Panthro? I can't tell the real you from the fake.
        Snarf: The sword, Lion-O! Use the sword!
        Lion-O: Not against a ThunderCat, Snarf! Our code expressly forbids it!
        Snarf: Exactly! The sword will only harm the fake ThunderCat!

      • (Believing he's facing the real Panthro)
        Lion-O: Panthro! Stop! You don't know what you're doing!
        Panthro Clone: Frightened, cub?
        Lion-O: You're not yourself! Don't force me to fight you, Panthro. Jaga forbade us to fight amongst ourselves.
        Panthro Clone: Jaga is gone, cub. Now I serve a new master.

      • Lion-O: Whatever caused it, we will help repair the damage.
        Wollo: I'm sorry, Lion-O. None of us will ever trust you again.
