Looks Like the ThunderCats Have Been Sent Back to the Litterbox

Cartoon Network issued a press release for their upfronts yesterday, listing all their new and returning shows. On the new side:

• Nick Cannon Sketch Comedy Series
• Annoying Orange (yes, a show based on the YouTube video)
• DreamWorks Dragons: The Series (based on How to Train Your Dragon, which is fine)
• New LEGO Project
• Ben 10: Omniverse
• Beware the Batman
(the one with a gun-toting Alfred)
• Total Drama: Revenge of the Island

And the returning series...
• Adventure Time
• Regular Show
• The Amazing World of Gumball
• The Looney Tunes Show
• Ninjago
• Level Up
• Star Wars: The Clone Wars
• Young Justice
• Johnny Test
• Pokémon
• Green Lantern: The Animated Series
• Almost Naked Animals
• Casper's Scare School
• Hero 108
• Scaredy Squirrel
• Sidekick

Notice anything missing from this list? Yeah, the ThunderCats are loose, and not in a good way. And since Bandai didn't have any new ThunderCats toys at the New York Toy Fair month, I think we can safely say that Cartoon Network is setting them in a box that says "FREE '80S PROPERTY" by the side of the road at some point in the near future. Sigh. (Via ToyNewsI)
