ThunderCats Bullet Point.png Story[edit | edit source]

From his makeshift cauldron in a grotto on New Thundera, Mumm-Ra conjures up an amulet which he refers to as the "Locket of Lies". Ma-Mutt then flies off with the locket and purposely sets it in the Valley of Snarfs. Just as Mumm-Ra had predicted, Snarf Oswald and Snarf Eggbert come upon the amulet and, via the Snarf Communicator, relay the news of their find to Snarf who is inside Cats Lair on Third Earth.

Thinking that it may be one of the items from the Treasure of Thundera, Snarf informs Lion-O about locket. The young lord, along with Panthro, Tygra and Cheetara fly to New Thundera in the Feliner. After briefly studying the locket, Panthro concludes that it appears to be a compass which might lead them to something important.

The ThunderCats following the direction indicated by the locket, end up in some type of ruins where they all fall into an underground crypt. Mumm-Ra then appears before the ThunderCats and reveals that it was his plan all along to lure the Cats into the chamber that they were in. He then flies away.

Every time the four heroes try to break out of the chamber, the walls close in, making every escape attempt more dangerous. Jaga then appears and tells Lion-O to use the Eye of Thundera, which he does and it frees the four ThunderCats from the crypt.
