Birthday Blog #7 - Negator, in all his glory...

Negator, from the He-Man season one episode "Game Plan", was a decent villain, but could never fit in with the show's "sorcery" as he was a technological villain, and therefore closer to the "science" aspect of the show. In any case he was apparently deemed worthy of a second appearance and so J. Michael Straczynski had him return in the pretty awful season two episode "Trouble's Middle Name." But that's another Blog entry for another time. For now enjoy this panning shot of the villain from his debut episode! Is it me or is this one of those panning shots that looks better as a separate camera move and not assembled as I have done?

Yes, you're right, James ... There's something "odd" about this shot! I think the animators were trying to pull off the "upshot effect," but unfortunately, Negator looks rather short and stocky, here! LOL :)

Nice job assembling the panning shot, though. :)

To me, Negator was like the Ebeneezer Scrooge of the He-Man series! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Never saw Negator in his first appearance. Only came accross him in "Trouble's Middle Name" and was astonished to find out that he had more than one appearance.

As...just because a character says they know Negator doesn't always mean he actually has an previous appearance on the show.

And yup, the panning shot doesn't look as good when assembled. On-screen it works well, though.
