Episode Summary

A Mechanical Rodent Penetrates the Cats' Lair, releasing a gas that reduces them to 9 inches. Tygra manages to create an antidote for the gas, just in time to fight the mutants who were attacking. Snarf gets another dose of the antidote, and doubles in size. He chases all the mutants out of the lair, but ends up hitting his head on a lot of doorways.moreless

  • Pint sized thundercats in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

    Ok so what if all the thundercats except for snarf were shrunken to the size of mice and trapped inside the Cat's lair? Also what if they were being chased by a mechanical rat with loads of artillery controlled by the mutants? Well thats exactly what you get this time and a few pleasant surprises. For instance did you know the thundercats have a chemistry lab in there lair? Also did you know that Tygra is quite good at creating antidote. Thank goodness for snarf or the thundercats might have been doomed again. the mutants and Mumrah actualy come up with a decent plan this time, for eliminating the thndercats. Still they seem to have underestimated snarf once again, and it comes back to bite them in the butt. The majority of this episode is a wild goose chase, with crazy antics. The Thundercats seem to have the odds stacked against them once again. I like the fact that they all work together and usethere weapons and wits to evade the rat in stead of just relying on lion O.This is probbly the only time you will ever see someone riding ontop of snarf.I would to have enjoyed it more if Mumrah had a larger role or there was a main villian with a personality.Still the mutants make up for the lack of character in the rat machine. In the end almost everything goes back to normal and laughter ensues at the exspense of snarf. classic.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Mumm-Ra refers to the potion as "the magic miniaturizing potion of Tutantiny". This further links Mumm-Ra with the ancient Egypt, since the name strongly reminds of Tutankhamen, an Egyptian Pharaoh.

    • Tygra informed Snarf that the effects of the gas that made him grow in size would wear off in a few days, yet it didn't appear that it would wear off on the other ThunderCats who used the same gas to get back to their normal size.

    • The antidote Mumm-Ra made to restore someone who had been miniaturized to normal size was a green vapor, but the one Tygra created was a blue vapor.

    • After the Wolfrat was defeated, they used its outer shell to disguise Snarf. Even though just Snarf was inside and none of the electronics, he was able to fire a laser beam with the Wolfrat's ears.

    • Vultureman built the Wolfrat robot.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Cheetara: Now we're up to normal size. Let's cut those Mutants down to size.

    • Lion-O: We may be small, but if we stick together we can do it. Teamwork is everything.
      Panthro: United, we stand. Divided, we fall.
      Wilykat: All for one...
      Wilykit: And one for all!
      All: Thundercats! Ho!

    • (After the ThunderCats are shrunk)
      Cheetara: If we're going to develop an antidote, we need to analyze this stuff.
      Tygra: I just hope I can reach everything I need in the lab.
      Lion-O: We'd better move fast. We're sitting cats while we're this size.

    • (The super-sized Snarf tries to sit in a seat at the council table, breaks it and falls to the ground)
      Lion-O: We asked you to join us at the council table Snarf, but we didn't expect you to take the floor so soon!

    • (Panthro breathes in the miniaturization gas and shrinks to nine inches tall)
      Panthro: They say it's a small world, but this is crazy!
