This is one of those rare cases of a remake far surpassing the original product. It is simply far superior in every shape and form. I grew up on the original series and loved it. Then i eventually saw they were making a new He-Man series and decided to tune in. I loved it! So well written and animated. I was hooked.
Years later after the cancellation I bought a "Best of" DVD of old he-man episodes. Wow i was shocked at how HORRID it was. flat acting and the same animation is reused time and time again. I was so glad I hadn't bought a more expensive box set of that. I don't know what I saw in the original series.
It is a shame the series got canceled. It was just a great piece of animation and a fun show.
