"After over ten years, the analog master feed of Cartoon Network is no more.
In its place I've been given an inferior digital substitute. The picture looks like a poorly encoded DVD.

These are the last videos from the analog feed:

Now Warners Has Three To Make Ready... Thundercats, Ho!" Posted Wednesday, June 6, 2007, 12:20AM by Nobuyuki
"Following hot on the heels of their recent announcements of live-action adaptations of other old Toonami favorites, Warner Brothers is bringing the big cats to the silver screen, by way of producer Paula Weinstein (Blood Diamond) and scriptwriter Paul Sopocy.

No anticipated release date has been announced, and the movie's plotline currently stands as an origin story expanding on the major heroes and villainsfrom the animated series, with the plot focusing on Lion-O coming ofage as the leader of the Thundercats.

Update 06/08/2007: The Variety story identifies this as a CGI-animated feature rather than a live-action adaptation.
