Kitchen sink!

She-Ra was always very capable of being smarmy and funny with her enemies, but the series very rarely used that aspect of her personality enough. However in the season one episode "Enemy With My Face" an unexpected funny moment occurs during the final battle between She-Ra and the Melog. After evading many of the Melog's attacks our heroine finally quips, "It looks like you've thrown just about everything in the village but the kitchen sink!" Seconds later her comment is answered as a kitchen sink flies into shot, bounces, and lands near She-Ra's feet. Rarely did Filmation use these kind of old-style cartoon gags...

For your listening pleasure, Kitchen sink!

She-Ra looks so embarrassed in the close-up shot! I love her cute and sarcastic follow-up, at the end, "I guess I was wrong!" :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

That must be the oldest joke in the book. But the sight of She-Ra's great legs jumping up in those tiny heels makes it all worth while.

Joke as old as time.

But somehow She-Ra is able to pull it off in her own show.
I was not expecting the animators to actually animate it, but fun to see nonetheless.
