  • Thundercats is a great action show in line with most of the 1980's fantastic cartoons. This episode truly shows a different side of the series.

    In many 1980's cartoons there was a message (G.I. Joe had the patented "Knowing is Half the Battle" bit). But Thundercats had a much different approach with this episode they hid a message about doing drugs and how drugs can alter ones perception to reality. When an earthquake happens Tygra goes to check it out, he meets a flower and the flower gives him some fruit. Tygra becomes instantly addicted to the side affects of the fruit. It turns out that Mum-Ra is up to his old tricks and he actually is the dealor of this designer drug. Tygra even betrays the Thundercats just to get more fruit. The best part of the episode is when you get to see Tygra as a junkie totally zoned out with his spacey eyes. Everything works out and the Thundercats win as usual, it's a great episode though.
