Notes of Interest:

-Although it is not stated on the cover, this is Volume 2 in Video Collection’s ThunderCats releases. I’m not at all sure just why it wasn’t given the LR2211 catalogue number (instead of Pumm-Ra/Spitting Image) and then to be the very first release??

-This video contains the ‘Lost Intro’ as well as several missing scenes from the DVD release. However the episodes ‘The Unholy Alliance’, ‘Berbils’ and ‘The Slaves of Castle Plundarr’ are edited down on this VHS compared to the episodic versions on the DVD release! So it’s definately worth owning both!

-According to the BBFC website, this material had a 58 seconds cut made, before it was passed for release with a ‘U’ rating. It was also rated a week before Volume 1 (on 04/07/1986) so again not sure the reason why this wasn’t released as Volume 1?
