Squash and Stretch Evil Warriors...

Richard Trueblood had a lot of fun when directing "The Games" for He-Man's season two (especially with the character Spikor). This first becomes apparent in the opening scene at Snake Mountain when Skeletor introduces his latest invention to the assembled Evil Warriors. Rather unconventionally for the He-Man series their faces squash and stretch very amusingly leading to a memorable few images from the episode where the visuals were more impressive than the story!

Mer-Man's face is genius :)

The animation is so fluid here, like in the scene where Beast-Man accidentally drops a rock on his foot in "Visitors From Earth" ... Very well executed, on both occasions. :)

To the best of my knowledge, I believe that this episode features entirely brand new animation for Mer-Man.

This scene is one of the definitive highlights of this episode. Also the "spikor posing" that would come later has almost become infamous in its own right.
