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 »
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 »
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.
