Swat Kats/ThunderCats - On the Loose

Post by mrpersonality » Sun Jun 21, 2020 2:09 pm

Wasn't really sure where to post this, so if it's in the wrong spot, feel free to move as necessary...

Lately, I've been having an idea for a crossover between the Swat Kats and the Thundercats. The basic outline goes like this...

After his seeming demise in "The Deadly Pyramid," the Pastmaster now exists as a disembodied spirit trapped in a limbo outside of time. He's soon discovered by Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living, who pulls him over to the Thudercats universe. He restores his physical body and makes his offer -- if he uses his mastery over time to aid him in conquering Third Earth and vanquish his enemies, the Thundercats, Mumm-Ra in turn will help the Pastmaster restore the Dark Ages in MegaKat City and destroy the Swat Kats once and for all.

The Pastmaster agrees to this alliance, in part because Mumm-Ra is, like himself, a being of the past. Secretly, however, he becomes intrigued by the Sword of Omens, wielded by Lion-O, the Lord of the Thundercats, and wishes to use its power for himself.

Soon enough, strange anomalies begin popping up in both universes. Sections of MegaKat City and Third Earth begin "ghosting" one another. Naturally, the Swat Kats and the Thundercats are wondering what the heck is going on, and go to investigate. They eventually cross paths with one another and team up to stop their respective foes and save each other's worlds.

A few interesting bits in-between:
- Panthro admiring the TurboKat (even moreso when he learns that Razor and T-Bone put it together from spare parts from the junkyard)
- Wilykit and Wilykat meeting Callie Briggs (with Wilykat becoming smitten by Callie)
- Lt. Felina Feral and Cheetara teaming up to fight Mumma-Ra's minions
- the Mutants of Plun-Darr getting Katalyst enhancements courtesy of Dr. Viper

There's more but it hasn't come to mind yet. So...whaddya think?

I like the idea. If you end up writing it and posting, let us know. Its giving me some ideas as well. Are you using the original Thundercats, or the more recent version?

Sticking with the originals from 1985.

I don't think anyone means the current Thundercats Roar version.

I just thought of a throwaway gag where, as both teams are traveling between their worlds, they catch glimpses of other realities, one of which is the Roar universe, but they say something to the effect of, "Okay, let's just pretend we didn't see that one," and proceed on their quest.

In seriousness, I don't see how ANYONE could have thought that version was gonna work...

Well, Warners wanted to do something with Thundercats, and Teen Titans Go was a hit for Cartoon Network, so they just decided to rip off that show's format. And as long as Thundercats Roar gets good ratings, that's all the suits care about. (BTW, does anyone know if it's getting good ratings?)

I meant the one between them. One season and so much potential, and they dropped it.

Oh yeah, the 2011 reboot. The rumor I heard is that Cartoon Network canceled it, even though it got decent ratings, because the toys didn't sell well enough.

And on a huge cliffhanger, too. A total Richard relocation.
