The cowardly cat's point of view.

The season two episode "Battlecat" features one of my favorite variations on the transformation sequence. When Cringer witnesses Prince Adam transforming into He-Man we are treated to a shot from the cowardly cat's point of view.

As good as the final shot is, you'll notice that the original storyboard panel (drawn by Hal Sutherland) is slightly more dramatic with Prince Adam's pose and Cringer's positioning.

Awesome James, I can't wait to get to see this episode for the first time :)

I love storyboard to final production shots comparisons as well.

Very cool, Busta!

The Incredible staging, art, and story telling in these cartoons is clearly evident in your posts!

Yes I also have always enjoed the storyboard comparisons to final products.

You simply must do one on "The Return of Orko's Uncle" where Azrog takes care of Teela in the first part of the episode.

Nice, original shot ... These variations of Prince Adam drawing the Sword of Power are a treat, like the shadow of Adam drawing his sword in "The Dragon Invasion" and "The Greatest Show On Eternia," the far off shot of Adam from "Curse Of The Spellstone," and the different angle of Adam from "The Rainbow Warrior." :)

The storyboard image looks better suited for a He-Man comic book, since the illustrations in the comics seemed to be more intense than the cartoon!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
