Fond memories.
26 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, ol' Lou Schiemer and Filmation did some classic stuff in the 80s.

I remember going to the theater to see 'He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword'. It was one of the few movies I actually got to go to in between my early childhood and late adolescence (I think I was grounded from the time I was 10 until I was 18).

Heh, interesting memories. The friend I'd seen the movie with was the BIG He-Man fan, I was more of a GI Joe/Transformer fan (at least as far as our respective toy collections were concerned). He was always complaining about She-Ra pulling off ridiculous feats of strength without much effort---I believe in one episode she moves a large celestial body or large building or some such with one hand, whereas in some other episode of He-Man's show it was some sort of face-twisting hernia-inducing task for He-Man to lift Castle Greyskull off its foundations. It was *so* important for us to discuss this stuff! Ah, the bliss of youth, I do miss it.

I remember the She-Ra cartoon being a little bit flashier looking than the He-Man one. It used a lot more of that orange-yellow-scintillating light-effect-thing that Filmation made use of a lot in its cartoons, usually for "magic portals" and such. And of course the music had more depth to it. Most Filmation cartoons that I can remember usually had an instrumental version of the theme song over the end credits. Of course in the case of He-Man it was just the opening theme with none of the narration. Not only did She-Ra's end credit sequence involve lyrics but DIFFERENT lyrics and evidently a different song! OK, enough of my rambling. I heard recently She-Ra had a higher budget than He-Man...I'm pretty sure the extra money went into golden-scintillating light...portal...things and the music. ;)
