A burning question....

Why do the Wileycubs have tails?
None of the other cats seem to have tails - So are the Wileycubs a different breed of cat? Or are their tails a sort of decoration attached to their belts or something? XD

Think of it like a prepubescent thing. They get their tails lopped off when they hit a certain age of adulthood =D Or something like a circumcision, except tails instead of part of a penis. XD

From what I've heard from the producers, it's kind of seen as a Lower class kidn of thing, the Cats with tails are treated lower then the other cats, and are forced to live in the slums.

Orly? Interesting...
I thought that the thugs on the streets were dogs... or at least I recall them saying something about dogs...
... In any case, this information is vital to drawing por-I, Uh, Mean PICTURES of the Wileycubs.

As long as there may be some Kat all big this is acceptable.

It's a Racial trait more genetics then anything else. ANd the exact line in, In the Slums Every ones a Dog" meening everybody heres gets treated like less then dirt (less then a cat less then a person) we dont care if your a cat pay up.

Yeah, When Lion-O said to snarf "I know their not cats, but no one should be treated like that" I assumed that all of them were dogs.
But after watching again and paying more attention to the uh... "background cats" I can see quite the mishmash of animal versus human quality in them. XD

Yeah, the pecking order we saw in the city was Tailless cats > Tailed cats > Dogs > Random filth and dirt (Official boundary between 'citezen' and 'outsider/barbarian') > Reptiles.

Now Young Lion-O doesn't see it that way, in his eyes everyone, British, Western European, Eastern European, African, are 'people,' and deserving of basic human rights.  (Oh, sorry, did I translate the species into 'Pre-Enlightenment' human demographics? Sorry.)

hehe yeah It's a commonly used theme I just hope they dont beat us over the head with it, Im honstly freaking sick of being constently reminded Equality=good. Im sure every one agrees now lets all move on to being entertained please.

I saw it as a way of showing that the Thundercat kingdom isn't perfect, it has as many flaws as the other species.  This is an interesting culture, instead of the boring perfect utopia that old planet Thundera was.

I agree. I just hope it doesent end up being a focal point for the show. IM kinda over the whole Racial Equality Serman =p It's great as a plot device I just want it to remain one.

Yeah, definitely import for the Artistic Representations of the Naked Form the Purposes of Illicit Pleasure and Anatomy Design. Also, you know they're totally banging each other, and/or Snarf, and/or Mae.  :3

No different Species get different things.  There are adult's with tails.   Besides i kinda like them with tails"as they are cute"
paige

Yeah, I failed to realize that the adult they swindle outta of their gold is a cat too... complete with cat ears and whiskers. XD
Sometimes all my attention to detail leaves big gaping holes in the big picture.

I think they went the anime route with everyone having varying levels of morphism. Some of them looked like furries. Some like people. Some with human ears, some with cat ears.

Indeed - I'm more or less curious about the story reasons behind it.
I'm not too terribly familiar with the "classic cats" and all that, I watched it as a kid, but the only real memories I have of them now is A) I liked it, and B) Snippets of episodes I caught on cartoon network like, 13 years ago or something XD

The original story had Thundara being it's own world. Said world exploded in a superman-esque tragedy. Which is why there were only a handful of them on Third Earth. The reboot ignores all of that. The Thundarians being just one of several races on Third Earth and Thundara is simply a kingdom thereof. All the creatures there seem to be permutations of anime and anthro animals. They don't give a reason why.

It was rumored that preproduction character designs did show all of them having tails not just the kits.  Bummer they went with the no tail designs.

It is kinda weird. the more human the higher class it seems.
eh, the higher level thundarens  (ESPECIALLY THE KING) were jerks a lot of the time.
I actually felt for the lizards more then anyone else. They have barely any food.
Are forced to attack to survive, and are hated by the very people who took all the good land.
Very Aristocratic of the high and mighty felines.

I have to agree with the consensus.  It's probably a class distinction.  But I'm sure we'll find out why eventually, if not in series, Word of God should clear it up eventually.

'cause they're furries. :D

Tail or not, they're both cute as hell! And yes, it's a class thing. Cats who still have their tails are lower/poor class. Dumb, but whatever. They're still cute!

According to Loveless, it is because they haven't had sex yet XP...  But seriously, due to the conversation I have seen... this looks like one EXTREMELY FUCKED UP SHOW.  DO NOT WANT.

They're not bobcats (or linx) anymore. They're housecats of some kind now I think. Perhaps they made the change to make them more expresive or something. It's not a bad look for them tho. Overall I am pleased with the updates. Too soon to know about the story though.

The lack of tails on everyone past a certain age is easily explained with two simple concepts.

Tail-sex.
Vagina dentata.
