lightning wolves pays homage to all the ’80s cartoons we loved as kids,” says Moynihan. “THUNDER CATS, HE-MAN and SHE-RA, GI JOE, VOLTRON, Silver Hawk – Cartoons that were full of important life lessons while secretly selling toys to children.

He has lent his voice to numerous animated series and films, including the 2017 reboot duck storiesCartoon Networks We bare bearsand the english dub of the Tatooine Rhapsody Short film that was part of the 2021 Disney+ series Star Wars: Visions. This will be the first animated show to have him at the helm.
