Crazy Credits

Unlike the Filmation series, in which the cast list was listed without corresponding characters, in this series the characters are identified by voice actor. However, the spelling of many of the character names is very inconsistent, not only compared to previously established way of writing them, but even from one episode to another. And sometimes, characters and voice actors are listed who were not in the episode in question. See more »

Alternate Versions

The first three episodes ("The Beginning: Part 1", "The Beginning: Part 2" and "The Beginning: Part 3") originally aired as one ninety-minute TV movie on August 16 before they were broken down into three thirty-minute episodes which began airing on August 30. No material was cut from the thirty-minute versions and the ninety-minute version didn't feature the opening title sequence. See more »

Excellent reinvention of the classic series
3 July 2005 | by Sentinel-15See all my reviews

Being a fan of the original series (and yes, the toys as well) I was thrilled to see this new series.

It is brilliant! It reinvents the old characters and manages to stay true to its origins. Finally these "masters of the universe" deliver action living up to their title. Skeletor at last is the powerful menacing character he should be. He-Man is the good-hearted force of nature he always was, slightly updated for these times.

And then I hear about its cancellation. Say what?! The inmates are running the asylum, it would seem. Why cancel it?! This series has so much potential... What is wrong with people?!

Bring it back! It showed so much promise!
