ThunderCats Bullet Point.png Official Summary[edit | edit source]

Vultureman invents a Voice Imitator, which imitates the ThunderCats' voices. He uses it to lure each of the ThunderCats into perilous situations. A Giant Bee attacks Cheetara; Tygra a Giant Wrestling Tabbut; and the ThunderKittens are trapped in the Vortex. Lion-O does his best to rescue each of the ThunderCats from their dangerous situations, and Panthro finally deduces that the cause of the confusion is Vultureman's Voice Imitator. Panthro turns the tables on the Mutants by using the Voice Imitator to steer them in to a multiple SkyCutter/NoseDiver pile-up. Tygra speaks for all of the ThunderCats when he re-affirms that they should always rely on communication with one another and try to work collectively against their attackers in the future.

ThunderCats Bullet Point.png Official Moral[edit | edit source]

Through the use of a voice imitator, the Mutants almost succeed in deceiving and conquering the ThunderCats. Isolating each of them from the others, they seek to preoccupy and destroy them individually. The ThunderCats unwittingly play into their hands by not calling for help and working together. Only when the ThunderCats are able to band together once more are they able to turn back and beat the Mutants. Sometimes we enter into a way of thinking that tells us we are better off being alone or trying to do something without any support or help from our family and friends. This can be a deceptive and dangerous way of thinking. Even if we seek to achieve something independently, we don't have to do it in isolation and without anyone's knowledge and support. In some instances, isolation can even be dangerous, e.g., when we go swimming alone, or when we try to face some danger alone. We live in a social network of family and friends, who are important to us and are there to help us. We must not let ourselves feel too isolated to ask for help when we need it.
