    Wilycub that was my problem with the last episode of Lion'O's trials. It was utterly ridiculous. I know Lion-O and Mumm-Ra are supposed to muscular dudes (well mumm-ra in ever living form) but they looked like balloons. I think for Mumm-Ra it was a given for him to be bulkier later since the ASOE gave him more powers.

    I do NOT want to talk about the last episodes of season 2, ESPECIALLY Hair of The Dog.

    I know what you mean. The "Trial of Evil" had very poor animation. Not just Lion-O and Mumm-Ra, but all the other characters were drawn badly as well. Also at the end when a number of folks have gathered to attend Lion-O's coronation, Dr. Dometone and the Brutemen are colored wrongly. And what in heaven's name are the Ninja and Mule doing there as well??!?!?!?! :confused:

    In fact all the episodes in the vicinity of "Trial of Evil" have poor animation, like "Superpower Potion", "Eye of Beholder", "Mumm-Rana", "Trouble with ThunderKittens" etc. Maybe these were produced in a different studio.

    Probably. I know Defenders Of The Earth had about three or four different studios, and one of those studios, the character design was a lot more basic. They didn't get that many decent episodes either. Watch the episodes we've discussed in ROCKS 2A-2D, and then compare with episodes like The Gods Awake and Return Of The Skyband.

    well you know thundercats was animated by three different studios. One somewhere in europe, one in korea, and also in japan. I just really wish the animation style they'd used for episodes like "spitting image" and "mumm-ra berbil" had stayed.
