Thick-Skull!

UK cult hero, and star of his own animated series, Bananaman appeared in a comic titled Dandy as one of a handful of characters. The comic was harmless fun that never took itself seriously, and the Bananaman strip was no exception! In this panel from issue two thousand four hunderd and twenty-three we can see that writer/artist John Geering was slightly influenced by He-Man! :)

Very amusing! He even has his arms raised like Skeletor does when he laughs, on many occasions in the cartoon, most notably in "Capture The Comet Keeper." :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

I used to love Bananman, used to be on about ten to four on Children's BBC, before I'd flip over for MOTU on Mondays.

I wish there were such characters around nowadays (wipes away nostalgic tear)

Never heard of this character. Does look interesting and fun. And MOTU references in other medias are always a bonus. The "magic words" sound something I might expect from Robot Chicken, actually. :)

LOL, this certanly did look like harmless fun and it dosen't give away that it's a He-Man reference.

The same can't be said about old-skool CITV show; Round The Bend and it's blatent He-Man parody 'Wee Man and the Masters of the Looniverse', 'shudders'.

I used to love those little nods to other show's they'd do, one of my favourite Beano/Dandy comics was the one with Macho Man 'Sandy Ravage' on the cover!

He-Man really did influence so much of pop culture. I love seeing stuff like this. :-)
