"Ok, I love the Thundercats. Many people I know think I am crazy for this, but they don't appreciate animation as much as I do. And this series certainly deserves to be appreciated. That said, Season 2, part 1 of Thundercats on DVD is riddled with the same sound and video problems in the first couple of sets. Even so, it is still worth the buy.
The introduction of new characters is fantastic. After watching the mutants battle the Thundercats fifty times, it is very welcome. What I don't like though is how many of the characters from season one become nearly non existent. The mutants pretty much disappear. Although, Mumm-ra calls on them occasionally to do his bidding and Vultureman trys numerous times to join the Luna-Tacs. While I am on the subject of things happening many times, I should probably mention how many times Mumm-ra switches bodies or takes on the form of someone and fools the thundercats every time. He does this at least once every couple of episodes. They always seem to be after some kind of artifact too. The Book of Omens, the keystone, the thundercats necklace, the gorgon mask, etc. They also enter the cave of time often enough for my liking. Also, get used to watching the Thundercats fight against each other. Oftentimes, you will see a combo of many of these things.
One other thing I want to mention is how the plots become more ridiculous. Remember how hard it was to repair Lion-O's sword in season 1? Well, Bengali can easily repair it. Mumm-ra has a time machine and uses it very foolishly. Lion-O's sword seems to solve every problem. Finally, my favorite one is when Snarfer goes to get Mexican food.
Lastly, I want to talk about the bonus features on these DVD's. I think they are not as good as part 2 of season 1, but certainly better than part 1. WB tried to do a music theme to these special features with the Rembrandts playing the Thundercats theme song. I have no idea why this was done, but it was interesting to say the least. They also did a little making of documentary on it and had an interview with the composer of the original Thundercats theme music that was informative.
Overall, this set is worth buying, but be prepared for the same quality as the first discs with episodes that are not as good. The new characters add too much depth and the episode plots get recycled plenty of times. Still, it is a cool show that deserves to be watched. If you only watch one episode, make sure to see Hair of the Dog. You will get to see Snarf-ra, the ever-living.

"I was waiting a long time for the Thundercats series to be released and finally they have.
Don't get me wrong but personally i'd like to see more special features (what's this about The Rembrands?Ok they are fans but...who invited them?!)
The other thing i didn't like was that they didn't respect the original drawings and in the front of the DVD's they have new versions from the Thundercats.
I didn't like that at all since they are not as good as the originals
Other than the above,it's way cool to have THE Thundercats finally in your collection.
iT'S A must have!
Buy it NOW!"

"Wonderful boxed set for the true Thundercat enthusiasts. Hubby went crazy when we found the whole collection here on Amazon listed for 24 a piece. We jumped on it and were so happy we did... because now they have doubled in price.
The boxes are really nice and some of the sets even have holograms on them. They have been copied over very nicely. GREAT buy and would recommend it not only to 80's children but also to the younger generation."
