Most of you by now have seen Judd Apatow’s masterpiece Freaks and Geeks. For those that haven’t, Freaks and Geeks was a shamefully short-lived comedy/drama that originally aired on NBC in 1999. Due to some poor ratings, only 18 episodes were ever produced. Freaks and Geeks was a show about “the other” people in high school.
Have a look at this picture just taken from the London Toy Fare. That’s right, this is the first image taken of the all new Thundercats. Growing up Thundercats was pretty special to me. I would wake up early each and every morning before school started to catch the reruns of Thundercats on local cable. During recess we would all take turns swinging from the monkey bars pretending to be the various thunder cats. Sadly, I was often given the character of Snarf. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this new series will be just as magical for today’s rug rats as the original was for me… many…many years ago.
