ThunderCats are officially on the loose! Rounding out our T-Cats reunion is actor Peter Newman!

Peter was the voice of Tygra, second-in-command of the ThunderCats Nobles! Architect and scientist of the group, Tygra was the designer of the majestic Cats Lair, and possessed the power of invisibility, as well as the ability to create illusions with his mind.

Like many in the cast, Peter also voiced other principal characters on the show. These include the evil mutant Monkian, the ThunderCat’s resident blacksmith Bengali, and WilyKit’s partner in mischief WilyKat!

Wings of silver, Nerves of steel! Peter also got to take the lead on Rankin/Bass’ follow-up series ‘SilverHawks’, where he played the fearless leader of the team: Quicksilver! He also voiced Mumbo Jumbo and Timestopper.

With reruns of these shows on streaming, and new action figures currently in production at Super7, both the ThunderCats and SilverHawks brands have been experiencing a major renaissance of late!

Peter Newman joins his colleagues Lynne Lipton and Larry Kenney at our ThunderCats (and SilverHawks!) reunion at Retro Con 2022- September 24th & 25th in Oaks, PA! Come meet them in person and catch their Q&A at the show!

We’ve been chasing this particular guest since even before our very first show in 2012! Rather appropriate given her primary character…

But we’re excited to announce that at long last, actor Lynne Lipton will be joining us for Retro Con 2022!

Lynne is best known for voicing the bo-staff wielding speedster Cheetara on the classic 80’s animated series ThunderCats! A favorite since episode one, the character has since transcended the ThunderCats cartoon and toy line and gone on to become a pop culture icon (and a “cartoon crush” for many).

An actor of great versatility, Lynne actually voiced ALL the female characters on the first season of the ThunderCats show! These include the likes of the mischievous WilyKit, as well as Mumm-Rana, Queen Tatara, Ro-Bear Belle, Luna, and the popular recurring character Mandora the Evil Chaser!

Lynne joins the voice of Lion-O himself (Larry Kenney) at Retro Con 2022, September 24th & 25th in Oaks, Pennsylvania! ThunderCats are on the move!
