Did You Know?

Trivia

According to Lou Scheimer in the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", the first suggestion for She-Ra's name was 'She-Ro', referring to He-Man's original name, 'He-Ro'. But Lou thought that name didn't sound feminine. Writer Larry DiTillio then came up with She-Ra, referring to the Egyptian word for god, "Ra". However, Ra actually means sun in the ancient Egyptian and not the word god. Ra is the name of the ancient sun god. See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits, Castle Grayskull's Jaw-Bridge is missing when Adora transforms into She-Ra. This mistake is also seen in the 5 part origin story that opens the series and He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence. See more »

Good stuff from the 80's
25 July 2002 | by baiafy-1See all my reviews

She Ra and He Man are by far (along with the likes of The Thundercats and Voltron)some of the best cartoons ever. They were the staple of my after school lineup. Its a shame that they aren't broadcast around here. I could never understand why these were never (recently) made available on DVD/VHS. Too bad!
