Trivia

According to Lou Scheimer in the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", the first suggestion for She-Ra's name was 'She-Ro', referring to He-Man's original name, 'He-Ro'. But Lou thought that name didn't sound feminine. Writer Lawrence G. DiTillio then came up with She-Ra, referring to the Egyptian word for god, "Ra". However, Ra actually means sun in the ancient Egyptian and not the word god. Ra is the name of the ancient sun god. 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 »

Quotes

[opening segment of the series]
Adora: 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 said "For the honor of Greyskull!". I am She-Ra!
[Adora transforms into She-Ra, and transforms Spirit into Swift Wind]
She-Ra: Only a few others share this secret. Among them are Light Hope, Madame Razz, and Kowl. Together me and my friends of the Great Rebellion try to defend Etheria from the evil ...

Crazy Credits

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.

Great show! I wish they made more like this
16 October 2001 | by (midwest) – See all my reviews

She-Ra was a very obivous attempt to expand the He-Man universe into the barbie dolls and Holly Hobby bracket of society. Guess what, it worked! She-Ra blended a good feminist heroine with plenty of action and adventure. Along with pastel colors and general cuteness for balance. It had good characters, good animation design and for the time period good scripts. What little girl didn't want to be She-ra when she grew up? Plus it had a cool horse. The funny thing about the show was how much it borrowed from Wonder Woman. The secret idenity, the amazonian nature, the main female badgirl based off a cat(catra/cheetrah), ect. Even though the vast majority of 80's cartoons are unwatchable these days. She-ra is still entertaining even if it didn't hold the power it did in the 80's.
