 Post subject: Masters Of The Universe

Anyone remember the old classic TV cartoons "Masters Of The Universe"? It featured the stories of Prince Adam (and his altar ego, He-Man), Man-At-Arms and his daughter Teela, along with enemy, Skeletor, and his many hench men, plus The Sorceress, and others?

I saw this article on "MOTU" and thought some one might enjoy reading it as I did. It brings back lots of memories:

I used to love this show. In fact, my first words were "HE-MAN!", complete with a dramatic pause. I was apparently pretty slow to talk, and I chose my words carefully. (I'm sure they weren't literally my first words, but it's the first thing my Mom really remembers me saying, which is pretty awesome).

Heh, yeah, I was a HUGE fan as a kid. Couldn't get enough of it. I had every figure they made, up until the feature film came out. If I remember right, the first toy I ever picked out for myself was a Skeletor figure (and from the first wave of figures, which was before the cartoon started I think, at that).

One of my favorite things was the little comic books that came with each figure. I still have all of those tucked away where I can get to them easily. That added a lot of fun to them, creating a nice set of backstories for each character. World Building at its finest, until it got convoluted with multiple canon reboots. Fun fact: the first reboot? The cartoon. Before it aired, all the characters had a totally different origin and Prince Adam did not exist. He-Man was just He-Man (and essentially a Conan copy).

I've picked up a few of the multi-episode DVDs I've seen around for a low price in the past years, too. The show holds up better than I expected - granted, there's some cheese there, but it's still good.

Ha, I just saw a tv commercial with Skeletor and HeMan for Honda cars. I found it on you tube also. Take a look:



Talk about blast from the past, lol. :D

Heh, there's a whole untold story about how He-Man was conceived/created. My dad used to be one of Mattel's top sales rep in the eighties and he lived through He-Man's golden age, sold a looooooooot of them. I remember, he used to take me to his office in Montreal an brought me to the He-Man showroom thet had to impress the customers. The entrance of the room was a door like Castle Greyskull and there were He-Man toys EVERYWHERE. Needless to say, I was in kid heaven. I had so many at home too!

Also: the article was great and put a huge smile on my lips! Thanks SS1! Now I need to watch all my He-Man cartoons again!

Was watching a tv program the other night and just happened to see a commercial with the He-Man gang from "The Masters Of The Universe" tv cartoon show featured in a Geicko Commercial. It was fantastic seeing them all again. Really made me feel happy and gave me a laugh.

Looked it up and saw this online:

This commercial is a bit strange, but it's great ! Sure that the animation isn't at a top level but that is cool indeed :)
