Panthro returns on ThunderCats

Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Television

Something’s been missing from the new ThunderCats cartoon … something big. Literally. Namely strongman Panthro and his awesome Thundertank.

In the hourlong pilot episode we thought we saw Panthro, after first being told he was dead — but it was really Mumm-Ra in disguise in an awesome double bluff. But the big guy returns for real in Friday’s new episode, “Song of the Petalars”:

On the run from the unstoppable lizard army, Lion-O fears for his life. While hiding, he encounters a race of creatures who live out their entire lifetime in 24 hours,  and learns a valuable lesson about hope.  Plus, the highly anticipated debut of Panthro and the Thundertank!
