Thundercats

We hate to disappoint – we really do…but Summer’s gone! It pains us as much as it pains you – the lack of sunshine, the need for 17 layers and the dark nights. If we have to wear long sleeves, then at least we have an amazing selection of cool sweaters and hoodies to choose from. From Barbie to Harry Potter, Batman to The Goonies – we’ll have you thinking ‘who needs summer’ quicker than you can say ‘hot chocolate season ready’. Pinky promise.

Step into the wizarding world of Harry Potter, TruffleShuffle-style! It’s been almost 20 years since the magic of Harry Potter captured the hearts of adults and children across the globe, with J.K Rowling’s first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! Flaunt some serious appreciation while keeping warm with the help of these seriously cool hoodies and sweaters!

Show the world you’re out there fighting off more than just the cold weather in one of our awesome superhero tops!



It may not be the season for Coke floats, but that’s not stopping us from making a right splash with these awesome exclusive Coca-Cola hoodies!

To conclude our run down – giving a nod to the 80s, we love these great childhood classics!

Try saying that in a hurry…

So! 2016 was a bit of a mixed bag of events – okay so it MIGHT have sucked at times – but plenty of you lovely lot decided to bring cheer to the year by snapping up a tee or two from TruffleShuffle (and boy, did we all need some positivity right?!)

So what were people buying you cry?? Read on to find out which tees you lot thought were the bees knees and maybe get a little wardrobe inspo for 2017. New year, new T-Shirt, right?? (we’re sure that’s the right saying…). Let’s go!

Men’s Red Batman Graffiti Logo T-Shirt

This quirky take on the iconic Batman logo has been a TruffleShuffle staple for years – and with the look and feel of a real vintage find, it’s no wonder!

Men’s Mr Grumpy I Had Fun Once T-Shirt

Just MADE for those who prefer life on the sulky side, we’re not surprised Mr Grumpy is so popular (and with a year like 2016, we were with him more than ever!)

Women’s White You Remind Me Of The Babe Bowie Labyrinth T-Shirt

After the sad loss of the legend himself, celebrating Bowie’s amazing appearance as Jareth the Goblin King in completely cult film Labyrinth was a must-do in 2016. This cool, classic black and white tee fitted the bill perfectly.

Men’s Black Stormtrooper And Darth Vader Selfie Star Wars T-Shirt from Chunk

The selfie was still going strong in 2016 as proven by two unlikely guys on this super-cool tee by London label Chunk Clothing. And with the release of Rogue One, with lots more movies to come, it’s still an out-of-this-world buy. Say ‘Dark Siiiiiiide’!

Women’s White Fleetwood Mac Rumours T-Shirt from Amplified

This incredible record just gets better with age! With hits like Go Your Own Way and Dreams – not to mention the explosive, sensational relationships within the band – tons of you celebrated one of the best-selling albums of all time, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.

Men’s Black Fast N’ Loud Gas Monkey Garage Logo T-Shirt

As the awesome US motor makeover show Fast N Loud went mega in 2016, people wanted a piece of its slick southern style. This classic logo tee was just the thing to inject some serious grease power into any fan’s wardrobe!

Men’s Black ThunderCats Logo T-Shirt

ThunderCats were always on the move back in the 80s… as was this super-cool (and some might say meowvellous…) tee in 2016, as loads of you decided to pay homage to the fierce feline fighters.

Women’s Daddy’s Lil Monster Suicide Squad Varsity T-Shirt

HOW good was Margot Robbie’s star turn in last summer’s much-anticipated Suicide Squad?! This super-cool varsity tee was snapped up by lots of style conscious ladies looking to channel the mischievous Harley Quinn. Suuuuper popular and super cool.

Men’s Old School Gamer T-Shirt

Yeah, there might be some seriously swish gaming gear about now – but we think you just can’t beat the classics, from the Gameboy to the NES zapper. It seems that lots of you agreed in 2016, with this Old School Gamer tee flying off the shelves!

Men’s Distressed DC Comics Flash Logo T-Shirt

The speedster of DC Comics is always in style! With his famous super-speed and superhuman reflexes, it’s no surprise that so many of us wanted to pay homage in this classic tee (and hopefully pick up some useful skills at the same time!)

Are you an animaniac? Crazy for cartoons? Well you probably have a great collection of Cartoon T-Shirts already (if not, why not?) but have you ever really thought about some of the voices behind your favourite animated characters?

Me neither, so I set off in search of some of my favourite characters and voices. Here’s what I found….

Grandpa Huxtable was a Thundercat!

Between 1984 & 1992, Earle Hyman played Grandpa Russell Huxtable in The Cosby Show. Despite being a trombone playing, Hillman College graduate and a really bad buyer of sweaters in this popular sitcom he was also moonlighting as a humanoid warrior feline from outer space, Panthro.

Panthro was the resident mechanic in the cartoon Thundercats and was also the least clothed member after Snarf.

Earle talked about voicing Panthro and he says it was an easy job because he just pretended he was talking to his cats, which makes me think he probably misunderstood the plot of the series just a little bit.

Uncle Phil was a Shedder!

Actor James Avery played Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Obviously not content with just putting up with all the shenanigans caused by an annoying wannabe rapper called “Will Smith” he also voiced Shredder from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.

For over 100 episodes, the man best known for playing a conservative judge also lent his voice to an Asian ninja master best known for living inside a giant mechanical eyeball and hanging out with a hideous man-hog and a disembodied brain. Avery openly admitted the relationship between him and Krang was played “like an old married couple.” Check out the full interview here:

Fergie was Sally Brown!

Stacy Ann Ferguson, aka Fergie, is probably best known for being part of the ‘pop sensation’ The Black Eyed Peas along with Will.i.am and….. those other guys?!?! Apart from being a member of the B.E.P’s, Fergie has also done some film acting (Planet Terror, Nine) and voice acting work (Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa), but the highlight to her career has to be when she voiced Sally Brown, Charlie Brown’s little sister in Peanuts.

Sally is remembered for her crush on Linus and for not being the brightest spark in the box. Fergie was one of the original Sallys. As Stacy Ferguson, she voiced the character in two classic Peanuts movies and The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show, starting when she was only 9. Here’s what she sounded like back then:

And apparently she can still do that voice, which means that if they did a CGI remake of the Peanuts movie, casting Fergie would actually be quite a good decision.

Kelsey Grammer was Side-Show Bob!

When you think of Kelsey Grammer you probably think about Frasier Crane, the character he portrayed for 20 years on ‘Cheers’ and then in ‘Frasier.’ But Kelsey is also responsible for another pretty noteworthy and long-running television fixture and probably my favourite cartoon bad guy Sideshow Bob.

Sideshow Bobs tendancy to break out into song comes from Grammer’s own life. Apparently Grammer had a habit of singing during the shooting of ‘Cheers’ and Sam Simon, who wrote and produced ‘Cheers’ before developing ‘The Simpsons,’ recommended Grammer incorporate this trait into the character Sideshow Bob.

Other Sideshow Bob secrets revealed is that Bobs accent comes from the late stage actor and personal friend of Kelsey, Ellis Rabb. More confessions to come from the interview reveal Kelseys favourite Sideshow Bob line. So why not check out the interview below:

So there you have it, 4 of my favourite cartoon voices. Thankfully we have plenty of cool tees available so you can show your appreciation for these vocal genius too!!

The Good Old TV Times!

by Aaron Buckley on November 22, 2012

Led on your belly with head on hands, in front of a faux wooden box on top an oak cabinet, eyes as wide as saucers glued awaiting the evening’s entertainment! Four channels is all we had and even so we’d only watch two of them.

Being the youngest, the family hierarchy dictates that you be the remote control. Dad would direct you to the channel to switch as you stodgily walk on knees to the big brown box. After a while you’d try and tempt fate by switching channels whilst dad was sleeping only to hear a muffled but firm “I was watching that”! Then you’d rush back to your spot on the sofa trying whole heartedly to blame your older sister only to get the evil eye off both off them.

Sure we were telly addicts but who wasn’t?

Straight home from school the big brown box would be glowing with luminescent joy and we’d watch, Thundercats, Masters of the Universe, Inspector Gadget, Danger Mouse, Bugs Bunny on Rolf’s Cartoon Club, Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and just before bedtime Only Fools and Horses and Cheers.

The theme music to Poirot and Lovejoy still send shivers down my spine and give me that queasy “I have school tomorrow” feeling and have most likely forgotten any homework I had and do I have P.E?

On the bright side here’s a few T.V. themes to get you through the day so you don’t have to think about school and hey we’re grownups now and we never have to go to school ever again :-)

Men's The Fonz Happy Days T-Shirt £19.99 (also available for ladies!)
