Episode 1: EXODUS (Part 1) – stream it here.
After the destruction of their home planet Thundera, the titular ThuncerCats fly off to a new home, only to get shot down by their arch-enemies, the Mutants. The planet, Third Earth, is habitual, but the Mutants follow them to destroy them. Lion-O manages to chase them away and decides to follow them into the wild. The rest of the ThunderCats realize that their ship has destroyed a Berbil village. Luckily, they are quick builders and opt to build them a base, but warn them of Mum-Ra. Lion-O runs into the Mutants, but gets cornered by them. Mum-Ra shows up and blows up the Mutants.
Episode 2: EXODUS (Part 2) – stream it here.
Lion-O discovers Mum-Ra’s treachery as he chains him up and uses a portal to attack the ThunderCats’ new home. He makes short work the team who nevertheless put up a good fight. Lion-O manages to escape thanks to Snarf, but he and the rest of the ThunderCats are captured. The Berbils surround Mum-Ra and say his name (which apparently causes lightning to strike) and the ThunderCats break free. Lion-O destroys Mum-Ra’s staff causing the once massive villain to shrink down to miniature size. He escapes and Lion-O promises to stay with his team and lead them to victory.
