The Time Capsule

Lion-O discovers that the time capsule containing the history of Thundera is still intact somewhere on Third Earth, and sets off on a quest to find it. Encountering many obstacles in the path of this great prize, the ThunderCats may have set themselves too great a task. . .

The Fireballs of Plun-Darr

Despite a terrible threat to their own safety, our superheroes, the ThunderCats come to the rescue! The wicked and evil Mutants choose the warrior Maiden’s treetop kingdom as a target to test their terrible new machine – the firethrower. Will the ThunderCats be able to escape the ferocious fireballs?

Notes of Interest:

-From what I can tell, Wynd Up Records was an independant music/film distributer in the eighties and I assume this release was only available from them by mail order? I have no concrete info as I bought my copy off Ebay a few years back… (if anyone has more info on this, we’d love to hear from you!)

-On the back cover, only one of the four images actually relates to the episodes on this release.

-Peter Hill designed this cover (as well as most of the other ThunderCats covers too!)

-This is easily the rarest of all the ThunderCats UK VHS releases, with some fans (myself included) never knowing it existed until discovering it online as an adult fan many years later!

-According to the BBFC website, the episodes were was rated seperately. “The Time Capsule” was rated on 19/11/1987 and was cut by 2 seconds. “The Fireballs Of Plun-Darr” was rated on 11/11/1987 and passed without any cuts made.
