True but they were animated in Japan, (like most 80s action cartoons) and both
shows have made cameo appearences in anime! no really!

A picture of Panthro from Thundercats is in the news paper in a early episode of
Bubblegum Crisis! (1 or 2 I think)

There is a Silver Hawks pinball machine in the first few minutes of Megazone 23
part 2!

The animation in some episodes of Thundercats is actually quite good... but the
acting stinks. Still I think the fantasy world presented is quite interesting. I
always hated Silver Hawks. The guy with the Guitar was no Nekki Basara, thats
for sure! ^_^

Some other American shows of note with good or decent Japanese animation are:

Galaxy Rangers I loved this show as a kid. the animation was anime quality but
the acting was worse than thundercats. I think it was animated by TMS (Same as
the best Batman episodes) I really wish Toonami would get this one.

Bionic Six Don't remember much about this one other than the animation was good
and some famous animators got their starts on it.
