Did You Know?

Trivia

'Lawrence G. DiTillio' was responsible for most of the series bible and the character names. The original idea was for Adora to be called 'Eve', to compliment Adam. But this idea was dropped because the characters were twins. The Crystal Castle was originally called 'The Palace of Power'. Hordak's original name was 'Reaper'. Glimmer was going to be called 'Shimmer' but her name was changed when it proved difficult for the voice actors to say. 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 the 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.

Why did it have to end?
10 June 1999 | by (The castle Grayskull) – See all my reviews

I grew up on this show. I had the dolls. My sister and i played She-Ra for hours. I just don't understand why this show gets dumped off the airwaves and trash like "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" and "Pokemon" gets put on instead. This was one of the few really good kids shows, with no sex and bad language, and little violence. Where has children's programming gone? Bring She-Ra and He-Man back!
