The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
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.

Even though this series ended in 1985, several "Masters of the Universe" characters (including He-Man, Orko, Skeletor, and Battle Cat) would make occasional guest appearances on the spin-off show "She-Ra: Princess Of Power", which ran from 1985 to 1987. The character of She-Ra was He-Man's sister. See more »
Series canon establishes that Trapjaw's right arm is mechanical, yet in several episodes, it shows his left arm to be mechanical, and switches back to his right arm. See more »
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!
