With the battle now raging on Mt. Everest, Sirius, alongside all members of Thunder Force and their allies, continue their battle against Gejetta and Eran. However, a large sphere drops down from above and the monarchs recognize it as a void sphere. Within the void sphere is Nox, who reveals that he faked his death in order to expose their kingdoms and turn the Earth into his domain. As Nox readies another attack, he is blown off balance by a particle beam that rips an inner being out of him. The beam was fired by a special device created by School Girl and Goyle as they show up with a recovered Tanook. Tanook explains that the reason Nox is acting this way is due to the influence

Alright so lately I have been seeing and hearing and most of all reading a lot of rants and declarations of dismay and rage and so on and so forth towards a new Cartoon Network show that is pretty much the latest addition of screwing things up.

They are making a remake of the classic 80s and 2011 version of Thundercats called THUNDERCATS ROAR.



Let that sink in for a moment. 

Now it seems like these days, every single show that was made in the 80s and 90s are practically forced into becoming "gemified", a term that I like to coin unless someone else already uses it: Basically they use the same animation and design that was more or less originated in Adventure Times, Gravity Falls and of course Steven Universe hence the term gemify IE using a very simplified style and animation that is both cheaper and easier for a lot of animation companies. 

But here's the thing, when I first saw the announcement teaser for the show, all I could think was "How many articles and videos will have the words "Ruin" and "Childhood" in them in the upcoming months?" and I was right. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think that the style suits at all and it might suck but what if it will be just as dark and twisted as Adventure Time or as emotionally deep as Steven Universe? We don't know, but everyone is so cynical since every shows that has nostalgic value is getting a reboot one way or another and the ones we have seen so far... Yeah, the new Powerpuff Girls show sucked and was so bad that I am surprised that they didn't shoot over filled porter potties at the Cartoon Network building with catapults. 

"Ruin my Childhood", it is just so easy to whine about that isn't it? But has anyone actually seen the older shows? I mean recently? Most shows that we grew up with are a little etsy, bitsy outdated. Why is  there so many versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise or the Transformers franchise or even the My Little Pony franchise for example? 
Not only do they have huge marketing value, hell originally TMNT was merely created as a joke towards the grim and gritty themes in popular comic books that was the norm during the 80s and 90s like the Daredevil comics (though how the hell it became so huge I have no idea) but they are meant to introduce to a new generation of kids so that the shows won't be forgotten and ending up in obscurity like Dino Riders.

The point is, I don't think that we should be whining about our childhood being ruined because that would imply that we didn't have any childhood to begin with we relied it on just animated TV shows. It is one thing if they would come out badly as the new Powerpuff Girls, but we did get the new Duck Tales show and I do declare it to be just as good and the original show if not more so. 
We should just let the current generation of kids enjoy the current show and then see how the original shows were like for their own judgement. Should we be worried about that there might be some kind of "agenda" behind it, like there might be SJW themed propaganda forced into it? 
I have no idea, I only feel like we are so plagued about our nostalgic stuff being so called ruined that we are getting rather paranoid about our kids being "corrupted" by cartoons these days that they may end up being "wrong" in our eyes.

...Yeah, you see where I'm going with this? For all the eye rollings and groans we did at our parents when they complained about us watching violent cartoons with dinosaurs with laser canons or mutant reptiles with swords, WE are complaining that kids are watching cartoons that are "manipulated by SJWs and enforces their flawed ideals into the innocent minds of our children." Funny how things comes in full circle, ain't it?

We just live in a different time now, just as how our parents lived in a different time when we were kids. We lament about how kids are just oogling at their ipads and sitting by the computers getting likes on facebooks when WE in fact were sitting inside, watching cartoons and played Nintendo. 
Now that being said, I do think that we should be worried if these shows have some agenda instead of simply entertain us like our old shows did and bought their toys and comics tie-ins but I say that we should atleast wait until we get to see the result.

Or maybe hope that the next nostalgic show will come out good, like "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power". Yeah, Netflix and Dreamworks are doing a new co-op where they will be making a new show based on the 1985 Filmation show "She-Ra: Princess of Power" and while I have only seen like a teaser poster, the pics I have seen from the development... I think that it looks pretty good.
Maybe it is just me who always felt that every single Filmation and Ruby-Spears Productions cartoons ever made were just so corny and cheesy even when I was a kid that if they would make a remake out of Ruby-Spears Productions and Filmation's original shows like "Thundarr the Barbarian", "Mission: Magic", "Space Sentinals", "The Centurions", "Blackstar" and so on, not even blind nostalgia would make anyone deny the fact that the new shows would be better than the ones we had to watch just to get to the good shows.

But that just raises the same question again, were the old shows actually really good to begin with? I mean, I could easily name a list of my personal shows that I enjoyed to watch but only a few of them really still stands up and remains timeless to this day and they are the shows that appealed both adults and kids like "Animaniacs", "Batman the Animated series" and the following shows after that, "Gargoyles" or "Ren and Stimpy". For example, I freaking love Thundarr the Barbarian but I could still name personal favorite episodes from "Duck Tales", "Powerpuff Girls", "Batman" and the newer versions of TMNT, MLP and Transformers. 

Maybe it's me who didn't have cable when I was a kid so I had very limited access to Cartoon Network at the time unless the channels I did have at the time (I only had like three channels) did buy in some of the animated shows that I really liked and they were like Animaniacs, Batman, Sailor Moon and so on. Years later, I did get access to digital television and before that I used mostly illegal video streaming sites on the internet before Netflix and other similar legal video streaming sites became a thing and I did catch up to a lot of animated shows, both good and bad... Mostly bad. 

In any case, maybe that is why I am not so really blinded by nostalgia since I did miss a lot of shows as a kid and only managed to watch them if I visit family or friends who had cable and after that the Internet had access to alot of shows that I realized that I was happy to skip. 
I mean, right now there is a TV commercial for a national network operator where a guy has rented a cabin somewhere in the Stockholm archipelago and he tries to convince his two kids that they can enjoy the very small TV with a built in VCR and a VHS tape but they would be happier if they had access to the network who would allow them to watch movies and access to the Internet even at a isolated island.
And that's what got me thinking; where we were kids, we were happy if we could have a TV with a VCR or a antenna so that we could watch morning cartoons before going out for a bath in the ocean and now these days kids would be happy if they just can have access to Internet so that they can watch the latest let's play of Jackseptic guy or stay in touch with friends via kik no matter where we are. 
Soon, the kids will have to deal with their own kids who are happy with they can use their VR sets or hologram if we are lucky when we are stuck used to our ancient old ipads. 

So I guess that I am trying to say is that if we all keep whining and moping about our childhood shows being ruined and therefore our childhood being ruined instead of giving it a chance and let our kids get their own impression, maybe even try to see how easy it is trying to pitch a remake of a old show to a major animation company for themselves instead of complaining about all the wrongs about it.

So tl;dr, So what Thundercats Roar looks bad, stop being such babies and get over it, you still remember your original shows and it is still there to buy or download and ignore it. I swear, I am almost ashamed of our generation...
