Show Summary

She-Ra: Princess of Power is an animated spin-off of the phenomenally popular 1980s series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. It follows the adventures of Princess Adora/She-Ra and the members of the Great Rebellion as they try to free planet Etheria from the evil Horde. The leader of the Horde forces that rule Etheria is Hordak, a sorceror who kidnapped the infant Adora during a failed attempt to conquer He-Man's homeworld years ago. Adora's twin brother Adam/He-Man and his nemesis Skeletor often make guest appearances. Like He-Man, this show was spawned from a line of popular Mattel toys and is still a classic among many fans.

"I am Adora, He-Man's twin sister, and defender of the Crystal Castle. This is Spirit, my beloved steed. Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and cried, "For the Honor of Grayskull!!" From the show's opening sequence.

  • before xena and hercules came She-ra and He-man the two 80's titans. a great cartoon that is a automatic classic. She-ra is one of the greatest cartoons of the 80's, showing that girls can kick butt too, this is a excellent series.moreless

  • Adora/She-Hulk must save the planet of Etheria from Hordak and his Horde followers.

    The suprising success of He-Man with small boys prompted the creation of a similar show for young girls. While the toy line is naturally way more girly (focusing on hair and combs to brush them), the show was luckily not limited by these restrictions.



    In a comparison to He-Man, many things stand out as improvements. Adora's origin of a princess stolen from her home and raised by her kidnappers to be a cruel military commander. The main villain, Hordak, is more imposing and was actually the teacher of the other show's villain Skeletor. She-Ra having abilities beyond stuff used for fighting, like healing and animal telepathy. Not to mention the awesome sword that could transform into almost anything.



    The show is not without it's faults. Some of the more gimic abilities of She-Ra's allies are ridiculous (Castanetta throws nets). The one guy, Bo, struts like a manly-man while wearing a midriff top that only covers his chest. Teela (the similar but opposite gendered character from He-Man) could beat him silly. And while the show was geared more toward girls, it got a little silly with things like sleepovers.



    While both shows followed similar formats and moral topics, She-Ra was allowed to explore things not allowed on He-Man, like romance and childbirth. These risks lead to a more superior product, often neglected because it is a "girly" spin-off of a popular boy's cartoon.moreless

    I want to bring it back the shows because the stories shows faith,love,unity in friendship and bravery to save the peace to their free planet Etheria. The stories was leaded by Princess Adora/She-ra with his members of the Great Rebellion. Their enemies were Hordak, the leader of the Horde forces that rule Etheria,a sorceror who kidnapped the infant Adora during a failed attempt to conquer He-Man's home world years ago. My favorite part is when Adora, He-Man's twin sister said the world, " I am Adora, He-Man's twin sister, and defender of the Crystal Castle. This is Spirit, my beloved steed. Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and cried, "For the Honor of Grayskull!!" These part is where the shows opening sequence starts. I want to bring it back because of it's great spectacular action scene,secrets to discover, and most of all the lesson you have learned when your watching a excellent show.moreless

    My world revolved around He-Man until She-Ra came along. She is a strong female character who is not only physically but mentally strong as well and who is a fantasic role model as well. She-Ra always strived to do what was right. I loved this show as a child and i still enjoy watching it with my daughter. We need more cartoons like this classic.
  • My Childhood Hero !!
