Season 1 of Thundercats began with the pilot being broadcast on January 23, 1985. The pilot consisted of the first two episodes, "Exodus" and "The Unholy Alliance" back-to-back. After the pilot, the rest of the episodes began airing on a regular basis from September 11 of the same year. The first season comprised of 65 episodes with the last episode, "Fond Memories", being aired on December 20, 1985.

Many of the episodes in Season 1, especially the initial episodes, were written by Leonard Starr. His episodes had an "introductory" purpose and helped to establish many of the characters and settings of the show. Among his notable episodes were the 5 "Anointment Trials" episodes. Strangely, these 5 episodes were not broadcast back-to-back even though that is how they take place and how they were meant to be viewed.

Season 1 introduces the viewers to the ThunderCats, their enemies the Mutants and the main antagonist Mumm-Ra. The episodes mainly deal with the ThunderCats trying to adapt to their new home planet of Third Earth and its inhabitants as well as to fend off the attacks of the Mutants and Mumm-Ra.

When not fighting these main villains, the ThunderCats were often shown exploring their new home, usually searching for Thundrillium, their main fuel source. Season 1 also introduced a number of characters who would go on to become the ThunderCats' strongest allies such as Berbils, Warrior Maidens and Snowman among others. A number of new villains also made their debut in this season, with some only appearing once while others having a recurring role.
