Cartoon Network has rebooted the '80s favorite "ThunderCats," which premiered more than 25 years ago. Maybe my youthful nostalgia has long dissipated, but I was pretty disappointed.

I loved Lion-O, Panthro - hell, even Snarf - as a kid, but this new version has a more adult narrative that feels and looks like the "Lord of the Rings" animated movies.

The campy fun has been replaced with so-called epicness. Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCats - noooooo!
