She-Ra's skirt never moves, despite her acrobatic tendencies. Female directors and animators on the show insisted upon this because they found it inappropriate for the lead character's skirt to fly up on a children's television show. See more »
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.
