Episode Summary

Lion-O wakes up from an awful nightmare he has been having about leaving Thundera. He remembers leaving some of his fellow Thunderians on Thundera because the ship could not stay any longer. Jaga appears to him and explains that they did not perish, and that they are on third earth. Anxious to find them, Lion-O asks Cheetara to use her psychic powers to find their location. Mumm-Ra, overhearing this news, send the Berserkers to capture the Thunderians, and bring them to him. He captures them, and has them sent to Fire Rock mountain (otherwise known to the thundercats as thundrainium). Weakened by the thundrainium, the thunderians are hopeless. Lion-O, unable to get past the thunrainium to save them uses the power of the star of thundera to cancel the effects of the thundrainium. Mumm-ra sends Grune to stop Jaga from getting the power of the star for Lion-O, but Grune fails. After giving the stars power to Lion-O, Mumm-Ra manages to steal it from him. Mumm-Ra, trying to possess the stars powers, instead gets destroyed by the stars power. Lion-O saves the thunderians, and anoints them as Thundercats. Bengali, the white tiger, Pumira, the female puma, and Lynxo the blind lynx.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The fact that the Berbils possessed the technology of space flight is highly improbable, as on Third-Earth they barely had the means to construct anything more sophisticated than poorly constructed dwellings.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (5)

      • Hammerhand and the Berserkers return in this episode.

      • Pumyra is very similar in species to Pumm-ra, a character portrayed by Mumm-ra in the first season. Bengali is of similar species to Tygra but is still more akin to a White Tiger, like Snowmeow.

      • Like the rest of the Thundercats, Lynx-O has orange eyes until he is blinded in this episode. Afterwards Lynx-O no longer opens his eyes. This suggests that his injuries were more severe than was originally indicated, as Claudus, Lion-O's father, was blind but his eyes were open and blue in colour.

      • First Appearance: Lynx-O, Pumyra, Ma-Mutt, Bengali, Thunderclaw and Hovercat.

      • In the UK, the Thundercats Ho! episodes were realised on video as one feature-length episode. However the individual episodes have yet to be televised there.
