She-Ra's skirt never flies up despite her acrobatic tendencies. Lou Scheimer specifically asked animation coordinator Dori Littell-Herrick to make sure the lead characters modesty was kept intact. See more »


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 The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence.

Fantastic 1980's Cartoon
17 May 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

I have reviewed dozens of 80's movies/tv shows and I have always said the same thing; the 80's were the best ever and nothing will ever top them.

She-Ra was one of the many great cartoons from that era. Being a male movie fan I didn't take much interest in it at first but I had enjoyed the awesome Masters of the Universe cartoon series. Back in the 80's I decided to watch She-Ra after realising it was connected to the He-Man show.

Just like He-Man and other 80's cartoons such as Thundercats, She-Ra had it all; swords, sorcery, action, moral dilemmas, heroics and pure fantasy. She-Ra's world was one of fantasy and there were clear cut heroes and villains. The villain was the wicked Hordak who ruled Etheria with an iron fist but could never totally rule thanks to She-Ra.

Call me crazy but I believe 1980's cartoons such as this can be great role models for everyone. I say that because 1980's cartoon heroes were true good guys who helped those less fortunate than themselves and always fought against the darkness and evil. The likes of She-Ra and He-Man were role models; they upheld their morals in a dark world and they never stooped to the level of the villains. They never killed anyone no matter how evil and they always worked tirelessly for the greater good. Perhaps we can all learn something from watching these shows-but remember to enjoy them as well. There's only so much philosophical thinking one can do whilst watching a show.
