    Almost reached status of ultimate pure delight, but still a great show

    By z-agent, Nov 29, 2010

    I was born before this happened, so I never got to fully appreciate this great cartoon. In order to achieve the status of ultimate pure delight you need the following: a story with a narrative, good battles without going overboard with it, adventure, pure imagination, a little romance, characters you can care about, some decent acting, and good messages without being didactic. Animation can be dropped. Here's the strengths this show has: Appealing characters (everyone loves Orco even the girls!), brilliant artwork backgrounds and character designs, and most importantly a very imaginative story. So what kept this back? Stiff acting, didactiveness, and lack of narrative. (Pokemon attained that honor though some will disagree). However, even with those three setbacks, I can't help but watch it from time to time. "I have the power!"moreless

    Outdated.

    By I80SKID, Nov 29, 2010

    If it's possible to be classic without standing the test of time, then He-Man & The MOTU can be calld a classic. Unlike other popular old cartoons (Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, G.I. Joe, The Smurfs, etc.), MOTU has aged. Bad dialogue and repetitive animation & voice-acting make it less than timeless in the eyes of some (me included). However, there is magic/greatness here as well as some great episodes. The transformation of Adam/He-Man is still as cool as ever, the comic relief of Cringer & Orko is still funny and the lessons most episodes try to teach its viewers are genuine while not being preachy. If you have young children, get them hooked on He-Man before they get hooked on the outright violent stuff like Pokemon & Power Rangers of today. If you're an adult who can't reach the kid inside, pass this by.moreless

    I HAVE THE POWER!

    By sonicx68, Aug 18, 2010

    He-man is the best and will always be the best show ever aired I like all the charcters and all the heros and vallian but He-man will always be my favorite Charcter, Mainly because I think his personality is everything a hero should be, and one thing I values life

    The most powerful man in the universe in non-stop adventures as prince Adma struggles between his two lives and does a very good job of it by acting like the cowardly Prince then draw the magical Sword of power and cries out the five magic sword "by the power of grayskull" And becomes He-man what more can I say



    I do think some of the story's are a little silly but I tent to ignore them form time to timemoreless

    He Man And The Masters Of The Universe is one of my favorite cartoons ever. Every character was interesting in some way. Even the bad guys. This is one of the coolest cartoons ever made.

    By blondwildboy, Jul 19, 2009

    Prince Adam yells out " By The Power Of Greyskull! " and goes from being weak little Prince Adam to the strong and Powerful He Man. His friends were totally cool. Teela, Man At Arms, Orko, Stratos, and many others. But the bad guys were just as cool. Skeletor and his evil group, Beast Man, Mer Man, Evil Lynn and many others. They hung out in Snake Mountain. This was one of the best cartoons ever made. And the action figures were very popular. Later He Man found out that he had a sister She Ra. I was never interested in her cartoon. But He Man was always a favorite of mine.moreless

    Who is He-man? This was a cartoon show in the early 80s. Based loosely on fantasy. Good versus evil. And good winning in the end. Our story takes place on some planet called Eternia. With Kings and Queens and magic being the key. One amazing show for all.

    Living in the 80s I was blessed with being able to watch this cartoon show every chance I got. I was a fan of the muscle bound beach bum He-Man. Looking back alittle more. It was like I saw what everyone else saw. Being that young. There is good in all people. Even the bad characters from the show. This cartoon show had all types of characters from all over. Being strong willed to the cowardly. I can actually relate to that. In the end having all the power and greed will get you nowhere in life. When your young and you have everything going for you. And in one step it can be all be taken away. Your left out in the cold naked and helpless. Its important for young kids to know whats going on in the world. The more they know the more they can deal with what is going on. Im talking educationally speaking of course. This world needs alot more heros more now then ever. And this cartoon show inspired me to do alot when I was young. Not for the glory or rewards. But for the simple facts. There are rights and wrongs that we all as people that live by. There also comes a time when every person must fight for something that they each believe in. If its right or wrong im not here to judge people. Im here just to say this cartoon show had an amazing effect on me while growing up. And the results speak for themselves.moreless

    'by the power of greyskull'

    By morecamp, May 10, 2007

    this was one of my after school cartoons back in the mid-80's. i make this review short the best part of the show i liked when prince adams finds someone i distress he transforms into he-man by sayin by the power of greyskull. i thought that was really awesome. and when the live actiomn movie came out in 1985 with dolph lungeon. and that movie was awesome right to the t base on the cartoon.

    I HAVE THE POWER!

    By ez1jb, Sep 08, 2006

    I didn't realize that this show only lasted for one season. It seems like I grew up with it. I really liked Heman, and his scary cat, despite the fact that this more of a macho show geared towards boys. Awesome cartoons are obvious to anyone of any gender. Skeletor was a classic villain, and the animosity between he and Heman was real. It was a lot of fun to watch Heman transform into a superhero and his trusty tiger go from a scary cat to a fierce lion. Heman was a truly creative show that had a lot of entertainment value.moreless

    I'm Adam, Prince of Eternia....

    By TheFriendAgency, Jul 14, 2006

    Well, i was yet to be conceived when this show came out-1983? jeez! Well somehow i saw it when i was growing up and i had no idea it was old. I used to say those lines-"By the power of greyskull, I HAVE THE POWER!! So awesome! I think they showed this in I Love The 80's on VH1 or something and it was one of the popular catchphrases of the 80's. Well, by today's standards, it would suffer greatly. So they tried to revive it back in 2002 with a modernized version, i never payed attention its like one of those movies that doesn't need remakes, in this case a tv show.moreless
