Spirit/Swift Wind was originally written to be a female character. Spirit could not speak before his first transformation into Swift Wind, and originally, only Swift Wind was to have the power of speech. Therefore, in many early episodes, Spirit has no lines. but later on, both Spirit and Swift Wind could speak. See more »
During the opening credits, Castle Grayskull's Jaw-Bridge is missing when Adora transforms into She-Ra. This mistake is also seen in 5 part origin story that opens the series and The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence. See more »
The first five episodes feature the origin of She-Ra and introduce all the main characters. Of these, the the first three chapters start with an alternate opening sequence narrated by Lou Scheimer which introduces She-Ra and the Great Rebellion, but does not disclose her secret identity, as it is not revealed until the third chapter.

As a young boy of the 80's I loved everything that had anything to do with He-man. When a new show featuring his twin sister debued I of course watched it for He-man...and found myself drawn into the wonderful world of Etheria. She-ra is an example of everything done right in a cartoon. It had action, compassion, humor, games, and life lessons. She-ra herself should be seen as an inspiration to young girls everywhere. She was strong, powerful, a leader, and wise. Another comment said She-ra was based loosely off of Wonder Woman...this may be so, but I honestly believe that She-ra was the main inspiration fot the famous "Xena: Warrior Princess." My friend and I found old tapes of She-ra at the library. After viewing it today, older and wiser, the stories truly are brilliantly done and there is even more humor than what I remembered. I recommend She-ra to anyone who loves action and fantasy.
