Although we finally got to see Panthro return on last week's ThunderCats, it was really just a tease. You can't just let him swing those nunchakus, beat up a few lizards and end the episode!
Well, on Friday's episode titled "Old Friends" (airing 8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network), we'll get to see lots more Panthro since he joins Lion-O's team officially. We hope we can find out what he was up to when that traitor Grune claimed he was dead.

The satirical medical series is written by and stars Rob Corddry as a doctor who wears clown makeup and "blood"-splattered scrubs so he can practice what he calls the "healing power of laughter" at a hospital where the staff is more interested in tending to their overactive libidos than treating patients.
