ThunderCats was an American animated television series developed by Rankin/Bass in 1983. The animation was provided by Pacific Animation Corporation, the working name for a collective of Japanese studios prominently including Topcraft, a group who would later go on to form Studio Ghibli. Season 1 of the show aired in 1985 (65 episodes), followed by a TV movie entitled ThunderCats - HO! in 1986. Seasons 2, 3, and 4 followed a new format of 20 episodes each, starting with a five-part story; these aired from 1987 to 1990.

The story begins with the destruction of the ThunderCats original home, the distant planet of Thundera. Forced to flee from the dying world, The ThunderCats and their fellow Thunderians board a fleet of starships to escape just as the planet blew itself apart.

Aboard the fleet?s flagship, a team of several ThunderCat nobles are gathered to escort and protect the sole heir to the ThunderCats? leadership: the young Lion-O, a boy of twelve years. They also hope to safeguard the Eye of Thundera, the source of the ThunderCats' power, embedded in the hilt of the mystic Sword of Omens.

The flagship crashes on the new planet called Third Earth. Lion-O and his nursemaid Snarf are the first to emerge from their suspension capsules, and realize that Lion-O has aged somewhat while in suspension. They are shortly confronted by the Mutants, who have been searching for the ship all this time and demand the Eye of Thundera. Lion-O uses the Sword to awaken the other ThunderCats, routing the villains and driving them back in their spaceship.

The ThunderCats salvage what they can from their own ship to begin building a new home on this Third Earth, continuing the legacy of their people for upholding Justice, Truth, Honor, and Loyalty ? the code of Thundera ? and protecting the innocent from the evil schemes of the Mutants and the ancient devil-priest Mumm-Ra vieing to possess the power of the Sword of Omens for sinister ends.
