Origin[edit | edit source]

The final members of a royal family from planet Thundera, the ThunderCats land on the planet Third Earth and defend it both from invaders and the ancient entity known as Mumm-Ra.

History[edit | edit source]

In deep space, on the planet Thundera live the Thundarians, a race of cat humanoids.  When the planet was found to be dying, the ThunderCats, a vaguely noble Thundarian clan, fled to the planet known as Third Earth.  There, they found themselves in conflict with the mutants, creatures who were their enemies on their homeworld and the ancient threat of Mumm-Ra, a mystic inhabitant of Third Earth.  While there, they set up their own base called the Cats Lair, which they called home and began to protect the planets inhabitants from both the mutants and Mumm-Ra.

The ThunderCats original lair was known as the Cats Lair.  Originating on Thundera, the Cats Lair was home to the Thundercats and upon arriving on Third Earth, they created a version that looked very much like the original.  The second Cats Lair was designed by Tygra and built by the Berbils, creatures native to Third Earth that the ThunderCats had allied themselves with.
