GCRN WarZ – Episode 03 – Thundercats Vs Silverhawks

Ever since ToonCast Episodes 05 and 07 TFG1Mike and OptimusSolo have clearly chosen a side. One falls under the Thundercats camp and the other has fallen under the Silverhawks camp. However, in this latest episode of The GeekCast Radio Network’s debate podcast, we attempt to dissect both series’ with as much unbiased opinion as possible. Joining Mike and Kevin in this endeavor are Steve/Megatron, Optibotimus, and long time fan, first time guest host Tim Silvers. So sit back, relax, and listen up as we debate over which series is truly better! This is:


#1: Theme Song

Thunder, thunder, thundercats, Ho!
Thundercats are on the move,
Thundercats are loose,
Feel the magic, hear the Roar,
Thundercats are loose,

Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats!
Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats!
Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats!
Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats! Thundercats! (11)

Tally Hawk!
Wings of silver, nerves of steel… Silverhawks!
Partly metal, partly real… Silverhawks!
Soaring through the highway of the heavens in their flight,
SilverHawks, a rainbow in the night!

Wings of silver, nerves of steel… Silverhawks!
Partly metal, partly real… Silverhawks!)
Silverhawks! (22)

TFG1Mike is a geek with many interests. He has been podcasting for over a decade, and sees no stopping point in sight. From Transformers, He-Man, Batman, Comics, movies, video games, cartoons, and so much more, Mike has a zeal for the things he loves, and he will bring the hammer down on the things that he has a disdain for. He's generally a postive person, but negativity can creep in there. Mike is all about the innuendos and innuendon'ts too. You'll hear him on many of The GCRN podcasts!


  1. I was tired, but I didn’t know I sounded so tired through a lot of the record. Sorry, folks. I’m normally in bed or asleep by the time we recorded and we went about 4 hours!! :) Ah, well. I had a lot of fun. Next time I’ll be better.

    Mike was given a really hard time. Sorry, Mike. I should have spoken up to defend you on several occasions. :)

  2. Listening to the iTunes version (finally) and the first 4 categories arent present. Judging by what was said, the first hour or so is missing.

  3. Finally got to sit down and listen to this entire thing again. Really great listen. I was on the Thundercats side walking in, but must admit a lot of great points where made for the Silver Hawks. Any idea if there’ll be more “Wars” episodes? They have all been great so far.

    1. Thanks! and YES there will be more. Timing hasn’t been conducive to plan them. I think the next one we have planned people will be hard pressed to choose a side.

    2. Thanks for the comments Dan! If it was up to me we would do WarZ episodes every month or every other month. They are probably my favorite types of episodes to record so don’t fear there will be many more and I think you will like some of the ones we have planned!! :)
