Storyline

In a distant and mystical land, wimpy Prince Adam leads the life of royalty. Unknown to all but a few close friends/allies, Prince Adam is actually a hero, the mighty He-Man. Together with his friends, (such as Teela; her father, a man-at-arms; mysterious Orko and his mighty friend/horse substitute Battle Cat), He-Man battles the evil Skeletor and his minions for control of the world, and, more importantly, for the control, power and "honor of Greyskull," the mysterious castle from which He-Man derives his powers. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

Alternate Versions

When He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) aired on CITV in the United Kingdom, several scenes were removed, not because they were inappropriate, but it was so that it would fit in a 20-minute slot. This usually included deleting the moral from the end. See more »

This show is better than new cartoons
23 October 2004 | by mineralsSee all my reviews

One thing many people do not realize especially the person who posted a comment before i did is that the advice scenes at the end of each episode of this show and 8 or 9 other shows taught good things to children and compared to today's shows this is one show that all children need to watch because when this show and the other shows of that group of 8 or 9 shows were all on you rarely got news reports of kids being caught with Guns, Knives, Drugs, or Exsplosives on school grounds because this show and the others taught kids right from wrong. This show focused on teaching kids to obey their parents and other elders where the new TV shows promote violence and destruction. I feel that this show should be seen by all of the young children that are under 10 years old.
