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 »

So glad its back, hope it stays

I was a huge fan of the he-man cartoon in the 80s, but being so young i didn't get to see as much as i would've liked. This 21st century version of the Masters of the universe cartoon is a great re-make of the old cartoon and better overall i have to say. The storyline and plot in this cartoon is much better than the original and the action sequences are a lot more explosive and entertaining. Remember the old MOTU cartoon was made in the early 80s and cartoons have come a long way since then, so the animation is advanced better and the characters are much more detailed and better looking.The new cartoon is not as goof ball and childish as the old cartoon and the majority of the characters are seen in more than one episode and get to be involved in the plot and unlike the 80s version this cartoon is not merely a vehicle in which to promote the sale of Mattel toys as it was the case before.I like the fact that all of the old characters from the 80s version that were in like one or two episodes then had an action figure made out of them, do actually appear in a few episodes and have their character developed more than in the original.Villains like Skeletor and Evil-Lyn are more cunning and evil than the goofy roles they had before and I'm glad that this cartoon rarely resorts to the slapstick action that so often spoiled the original.As i said i do think this is a better cartoon overall, but i do like the original version of the He-man character more than this one, he looked more brawnier and had a better voice and i like the old transformation sequence where prince Adam turns into he-man better than the new one. But this cartoon is much better written and its nice to see that effort is put into the story and the dialogue. I enjoy this version of the Masters of the Universe cartoon very much and its great to see it being done the way it shouldve been done in the 80s, but all cartoons were goofy back then anyway, I'm over the moon that its back for a whole new generation of viewers to enjoy, i just hope it sticks around for a few years.
