Trivia

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 »

A Vast Improvement on The Original
30 April 2003 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I used to watch the original He-Man series, but eventually I grew out of it after realizing just how poorly budgeted and written it was, albeit with with notable exceptional episodes.

However, this series is a perfect example of the best kind of remake. The producers obviously examined the original series thoroughly and set out to play up the best elements of the series and rectify the weaknesses. As a result, the series boasts vastly superior animation that avoids the constant cycles and other crudities of Filmation's work. There is also wonderful writing with stories that are so well paced that each episode has the feel of a feature film with the amount of content they manage to pack in. The characters are formed with intricate detail and it allows for a truly compelling viewing experience.

It is a pleasure to see a remake finally be everything that it should be.
