Thundercats

From beyond any known galaxy, the Thundercats escape their doomed planet of Thundera. With their ship failing, their leader, Jaga the Wise, is forced to crash on Third Earth. Jaga dies of old age on the journey and thus the leadership of the remaining Thundercats is left to the young Lion-O. The Thundercats must instruct their young lord in the secrets of the Eye of Thundera, embedded in the hilt of the mystic Sword of Omens and the source of the Thundercats' power.

Pursuing the Thundercats to Third Earth and determined to possess the Eye of Thundera for their own evil purposes are the hideous mutants of the planet Plun-Darr.Led by the reptilian Slythe, they form an unholy alliance with the ageless devil-priest of First Earth, Mumm-Ra.
