Did You Know?
The series marked the first time that the character Stinkor ever appeared in any animated form. The character was first introduced in the original Masters of the Universe toy-line in 1985, and was originally meant to be a part of the She-Ra: Princess of Power
(1985) TV series as a member of the Evil Horde. But, he was considered to be too silly of a character. Considering the fact that was basically a humanoid skunk character, who's only power was that of releasing a horrible stench from his body. He was never used in the "She-Ra" series, nor did he appear in the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
(1983) series, as it had already run it's course by the time the character's action figure was introduced. He also didn't appear in the 1990 animated series The New Adventures of He-Man
(1990). The character was finally introduced in this series and was even given a back story as to why he retains his terrible smell. A chemical accident transformed him from a petty thief known as Odiphus, into Stinkor the evil Master of Odors. See more
I have chosen you to lead my warriors into battle against the palace of Eternia.
You and your wonderful stink-power, are the very key to my new offensive.
Yeah, you're the most offensive thing we've ever smelled.
