Shortcast 56 – Accidental Artistry

THUNDERCATTY: Cartoon Network announced it was working on a new ThunderCats show, titled ThunderCats Roar, which looks and sounds quite a bit different from the ThunderCats from 1985. It got a lot of people upset and they let the internet know the depths of their disdain for the new look. Andrew and D. look at reboots (again), nostalgia, and the sense of ownership and entitlement a lot of fans have over these fan-favorite properties.



For all intents and purposes, that was an episode recap.

  1. You do get sympathy from Audiences when you do a Continuation, even if it’s like a soft reboot ie a Time Jump which Samurai Jack had.

    1. I think you’re absolutely right and is a technique studios should embrace more rather than just doing full, from the ground up, reboots. Thanks for listening!

  2. Ugly, ugly, ugly. WT… ? What’s going on with the cartoons? . I love the original cartoon. The new cartoons look like a monkey. Uuuuugly
