THUNDERCATS, HO! ThunderCats is set to roar back into the mainstream, with a new animated television series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation for Cartoon Network. WBCP recently announced a powerhouse partnership with Bandai America Incorporated, as the global master toy licensee for ThunderCats. Under the new agreement, Bandai and their international affiliates will create and distribute products worldwide that will complement both the classic brand property, as well as the fresh take on the animated series, with new television episodes set to air in 2011.
Since its debut in 1985, the ThunderCats pop culture phenomenon has had its paws sunk deeply not only in television, but also toylines, apparel and comic books. Twenty-five years later, through the Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Bandai America collaboration, the beloved brand is poised to make a new audience of kids feel the magic and hear the roar once again.
