“He-man and the Masters of the Universe” was an early eighties cartoon that took place on the fictional planet of Eternia and was about a young prince named Adam who turns into the super-powered, overly muscled He-man with the power of his sword. Each episode of the show had to do with He-man and his companions battling it out with the likes of Skeletor and his mob.
If you grew up in the eighties “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” was a pretty big deal. It was also my first introduction to cartoon/toy tie-ins at the time. Like many kids at the time I loved the show, had many of the action figures and the castle, but once the show was cancelled, reruns had petered out, and the toy line died out my attention was drawn to many other things as a kid.
I think for me I loved this show as a kid, when I tried watching it as an adult I had such a hard time latching on to it like I did when I was younger. I don’t know, maybe my taste has changed or it is something over my head. There are shows from that time that I still watch and enjoy, although I can appreciate it giving me the enjoyment at that point in time. It isn’t the only show to do that when I watch it as an adult.
I remember when they released a revamped version of the show for Cartoon Network, but it was actually dumber than the original.
