Sludgeman!

For years one of my favorite scenes in She-Ra's "Day Of The Flowers" episode featured a new, yet very comical-looking character standing beside Hordak; Ore Captain Sludgeman! His name alone is hysterically funny, but what is even stranger is that this creature was last see in He-Man's "Search for the Past" episode from season two. In that episode this creature was a Mud Monster, but now was being used as one of Hordak's captains. John Erwin does a good job giving Ore Captain Sludgeman the only voice he should have; a slurry, bellowing voice, seeming to show little emotion. But Sludgeman is hard to take seriously...

For your listening pleasure, Ore Captain Sludgeman!

Howdy

He is a funny looking err monster although like with other characters from He-Man and I assume She-Ra he of course sounds like someone else in this case Granamyer talking fast.

Lol, the way Hordak says 'ore captain sludgeman' is hilarious.

Great to see some exposure for Sludge Man! I've always found this character hilarious, I find his voice pretty amusing because he seems quite well-spoken for a stinking pile of mud! Definitely the funniest of all the obscure one-shot characters. :D

I think this character was also in "The Reluctant Wizard".

It's funny to see how many useless characters the Horde has had.LOL

Hey James any chance you can make a topic for the Blog about some non popular memebers of the Horde
like False Face?

I would like to see something like that. ;)

Funnily enough, there is a villain on A.T.O.M. called Toxic Sludge Mass who looks a lot like Sludgeman.

Ore Captain Sludgeman kind of talks like a Pirate, to me! :) Usually, a character this creepy would be voiced by Lou Scheimer and distored to sound more demonic! Ex: Trap-Jaw/Spikor/Two Bad. :)

On a similar note, all of the guest characters in He-Man's "The Ancient Mirror of Avathar" are given amusing voices by each of the regular voice actors, too! :)

Thanks for posting and for reading! God Bless...
