In a distant and mystical land, wimpy Prince Adam leads the life of royalty. Unknown to all but a few close friends/allies, Prince Adam is actually a hero, the mighty He-Man. Together with his friends, (such as Teela; her father, a man-at-arms; mysterious Orko and his mighty friend/horse substitute Battle Cat), He-Man battles the evil Skeletor and his minions for control of the world, and, more importantly, for the control, power and "honor of Greyskull," the mysterious castle from which He-Man derives his powers.

Several action figures which were made in 1986 were added to the cast of She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985) because production on Masters of the Universe had ceased: Rokkon, Stonedar, Snout Spout, Multi-Bot, The Horde Trooper, Rattlor, Tung Lashor, and a character named "Colonel Blast" who appears to have been based on the figure Rio Blast.

Man, how I wish they would bring this show back! It literally transported you into another world. This show, as in other Filmation series like Blackstar and Bravestarr, had some outstanding character design, especially among the villains. I mean, Skeletor was a guy with blue skin and a skull for a head. How cool is that? Plus he had a great voice (his laughs were just creepy!) via Alan Oppenheimer. On the good side, He-Man was cool, but my favorite character was his pet tiger Cringer's alter ego, Battle Cat. (Talk about someone doing a complete 180!) A green tiger with battle armor? That's just plain COOL! (The Battle Cat action figure was neat as well, although the only thing you could do with him was take his armor off.) PLEASE someone get this back on the tube where it belongs so I can relive this great show!
