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 »

The power rekindled
21 October 2004 | by ThePaladin1See all my reviews

I was born in 1983 (the same year the original series first came out) so it's not too far of a stretch to say that I literally grew up with it, in any case it remains one of my all time favourites. So, when I heard they were coming out with a remake I was hopeful, but skeptical. I've seen too many fall flat and too many are blatant money ploys with little bearing on the original (like a certain movie that I won't name.).

That said, when I first watched the series I was pleasantly surprised. This is obviously a labour of love that gives as much respect to old schoolers like myself as it does to those who have never even heard of Eternia. I was amazed to see the amount of detail, from Evil-Lynn's hair to the long standing Keldor/Skeletor rumour, that was brought into it.

The characterization is also terrific and they've even expanded on as are many of the details and relationships that weren't as heavily addressed in the old one. The animation is much richer and smoother and the series lacks the classic "80s cheese" (oh well).

Not to say that there aren't some points that I don't think work well ie: my biggest problem is Cringer not talking, though that's a rant I've done elsewhere.

This is a strong series that I've really enjoyed up to now and is, so far, a worthy successor to the original.
