I am a huge MOTU (Masters of the Universe) geek and am curious if there are any others here.

Shameless self-promotion, but if you are a fan, you can check out my free downloadable novel at the link below ;\-\)

I used to love the show as a kid.

But as an adult I have to admit...that show is super gay.

Yep, ditto.

I have nearly every single action figure in my parent's attic.

But the cartoon is corny as Kansas.

Thundercats or Transformers holds up a little better.

I used to love those as well. Though I wish someone would skin Snarf alive and make a belt from his hide. I hate that thing.

Ever hear the Thundercat outtakes? They always crack me up.

The original MOTU was the first cartoon ever made for the premise of selling toys and some of the episodes are still good to watch.

I like the one where Skeletor tricked He-Man into thinking he killed an innocent man by accident. Adam goes to Greyskull to relinquish the power and then when he learns the truth he of course has to get it back.

The 2002 MOTU was so much better, Better stories, the origins of He-Man and Skeletor were told, HORDAK was going to be the new nemesis if they had a third season....


.....and we do not speak of SHE-RA

I agree that the show doesn't hold up so well, but there is a lot more to He-Man than just that one show. Some of the books/comics that came with the figures are really good \:\-\)

Some were better than others, for sure. I'm not a HUGE fan of the cartoon, but rather the toys and the various other elements of the property.

That episode is "The Problem With Power" and was written by Paul Dini, IIRC. It's one of the few I still like to watch. Most of my love for the show is pure nostalgia... it isn't that great overall.

I enjoyed elements of the 2002 series as well, but it still had its rough spots. I thought Skeletor's origin was overly simplistic and not all that interesting, for example.
