Trivia

Writers Lawrence G. DiTillio (usually credited as Larry DiTillio) and J. Michael Straczynski were responsible for keeping track of continuity and worked as story editors on most of She-Ra's first season. When they asked to be credited as such for the second season, there was some resistance from other Filmation employees, and the two of them decided to leave the series instead. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Oh, the memories.
31 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This series really struck a chord within me as a child, and I still have fond memories of watching it. I wish it had never ended, and I would love to buy it on DVD, along with many other cartoons (like He-Man, The Thundercats, and Snorkels.). Everyone should have a childhood filled with great cartoons like this.
