Damn, it took me a while to notice WTF you are talking about, but then I noticed it... Hmm, I wonder if he was a fan as a kid...

I have no idea how old Renzo is - if I guess say 28 to 30. Acoording to jumptheshark.com, Thundercats aired between 1985-7. That would have made him....10-12 years old. Bingo! He was a fan.

Only, of course, if the air dates were the same in Brazil.

Close, but no cigar. They're different enough that I'd have to give him the benefit of the doubt, I think.

Aren't there a lot of panthers or pumas or something in Brazil (i.e. south america).

Hell - they're all at it. Tell me that isn't Space Ghost on Jacare's team logo.

"Started by the monks in India millenniums ago, Jiu-Jitsu is the base of all martial art systems. " Team Alliance bullshit.

Actually the logo is that of a Lion. It is derived from a move called the Mata Leon. This means Lion Killer. The move is also known as the Rear Naked Choke. The Thundercats logo is that of a panther I believe and is pretty different than ours. Thanks for the question though.

Maybe a little understanding of the concept of irony and visual humour is in order here. May I point out that I do not actually believe that Renzo Gracie has plaguirised the logo of an early 80s feline-based action cartoon for his own. The derivation of the name given by some to the rear naked choke was quite unnecessary and indicates a lack of comedic sophistication.

And I have to say that that lady at the Renzo association seems to have her finger on the all the data regarding Thundercats. Must be a recurrent question....

BULLSHIDO...LOL!

What a rip of the thundercats, most certainly. I remember Renzo, who isn't even part of the Rorion Gracie group, jumping on some dude for using a logo that was similar to the Gracie Family logo. Triangle in a circle with a couple of dudes..one being hip tossed or something. Actually a nicer logo..anyway he was scared off by threat of law suits from team Renzo. I'll bet "Team Thundercats" might want to take a look at ol' Renzo's logo. I'll bet they see enough of a similarity that they might want to take it to court. Mata Leon my ass!
