Back of Cover Description:

Berbils: are a tribe of robotic bears who capture Lion-O, wary of his intentions, but Lion-O is soon given the opportunity to prove himself when the Berbils are attacked by the Trollogs, the slaves of the Evil Giants, whose leader is the deadly Mumm-Ra.

Lion-O manages to scare off the Trollogs, only to be confronted by the evil Giants and the worst Mumm-Ra can concieve. Lion-O signals the ThunderCats to come to his side for another thrilling adventure.

In “Mandora – The Evil Chaser”, Lion-O discovers that curiosity can kill the cat, when his inquisitiveness proves too much and he releases three of the universes most wanted criminals from a strange metal cabinet. Bursting from their imprisonment , they charge Lion-O, relieving him of the Sword of Omens.

Down from the sky comes Evil Chaser first class, Mandora, furious at the escape of her three most wanted prisoners. Lion-O with the aid of Snarf vow to help recapture the outlaws , but how will the ThunderCats manage without the Sword of Omens.

Notes of Interest:

-The episode “Berbils” is extremely out of place on this video, as it really should have appeared much earlier (for a small child it must have been a little confusing as the Berbils had appeared on earlier volumes!)

-This video contains the full unedited version of “Berbils”, which was severely edited to form the Volume 2 release ‘Exodus’

-This video would later be repackaged as part of a double VHS set, with another tape also containing 2 episodes and in the same big case packaging as the Volume 6/7 double set.

-According to the BBFC website, the episodes were rated seperately, “Berbils” on 10/09/1987 and “Mandora The Evil Chaser” on 21/09/1987. Both were passed with no cuts made.
