Episode Summary


Mumm-Ra tries to get away but the Sword of Omens breaks open the casket dropping the treasure all over the planet, and Snarf, Snarfer, and one other snarf escape. Mumm-Ra gives a false Book of Omens to Ma-Mutt, Slithe and Vultureman, who have arrived on New Thundera in the Rat-star, for safe keeping so that he can decipher the real Book of Omens. The Thundercats go after them through the Caverns of Cold. They head toward the Canyons of Youth, but due to the effects of the canyon, Panthro, Cheetara, Tygra, Snarf, and Snarfer are changed into Thundercubs. Lion-O must use the sword to give the Thundercubs Thundercat understanding. Meanwhile on Third Earth, Jackalman, Monkian, and the Lunataks attack Cats Lair and capture Ben-Gali and Wilykit. Lion-O learns that the Thundercats back on Third Earth are being held prisoner in Sky Tomb, so he decides to send the Thundercubs to Third Earth to rescue them while he tries to get the Book of Omens from Mumm-Ra. Snarf decides to stay with Lion-O and the other Thundercubs prepare the Feliner to leave New Thundera but Mumm-Ra arrives and attacks the Thundercubs.

      • (After starting up the Feliner)
        Young Cheetara: All set?
        Young Snarf: No! Wait! I'm not going.
        Young Snarfer: But you have to! We can't leave you here.
        Young Cheetara: There's nothing to be afraid of, Snarf.
        Young Panthro: We know what we're doing. I hope.
        Young Snarf: It's not that. I'm not frightened. At least, I am, but that's not stopping me. I just know I have to stay with Lion-O. Don't ask me why. Snarf, snarf. I just know it.
        Young Tygra: You can't stay, Snarf. Lion-O told us how we have to go to Third Earth.
        Young Snarf: I don't care. I'm not a ThunderCat. I don't have to do what he says. I'm a Snarf, and I'm going to stay.

      • (Attacking Cats' Lair)
        Alluro: You're all alone, ThunderCats. There is no one who can help you. Give up now. We won't harm you.
        Bengali: No! ThunderCats never give up!
        Wilykit: But he's right, Bengali. We don't stand a chance.
        Bengali: No! Don't give in to the fear! We have to fight back. Lion-O needs us more than ever!

      • Lion-O: This expedition to Thundera has been a disaster.
        Snarf: It's my fault Lion-O. Snarfer and I should never have run off on our own like we did.
        Lion-O: That's true, but I can understand why you did it. No, the real problem is that I've made all the wrong decisions. Maybe I shouldn't be Lord of the ThunderCats anymore.
        Jaga: You can't expect everything you do to be an instant success, Lion-O.
        Lion-O: Jaga!
        Jaga: The ThunderCats need you more than ever.
        Lion-O: But I've made so many mistakes.
        Jaga: Stick to it, Lion-O. Find the Book of Omens. Salvage what you can of the Treasure of Thundera.
