Thundercats

I have been watching quite a bit of Thundercats lately (the original series) and naturally I couldn't resist doing something with the logo.

Growing up in the early 1990's in Sweden we didn't have Saturday-morning cartoons, we had Sunday-morning cartoons. For most kids this meant about an hour of Thunderbirds, Inspector Gadget, Sailor Moon and, of course, Thundercats. I wasn't most kids, I had to go to Sunday school each week, which meant no cool cartoons. That is, unless I could get away with faking being sick or sneaking home early.

So, as an adult I take great pleasure in re-watching these classics (and being an atheist!).
