Happy Birthday He-Man #10 - Four fingers?

Look at the image below and notice that our favorite Trollan, Orko, has somehow gained an extra finger in the season one episode "Diamond Ray of Disappearance." We can forgive the pilot episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe for making this glaring error, as the show was trying to find its feet. Remember how many times they played the main theme in that episode? Yeah, the show was definitely trying to find its feet!

That's right! Plus, Orko's hand looks more "human" in structure, and not as "cartoony." :)

The follow-up shot of Man-At-Arms is also a gas, as his helmet appears much larger than in the previous shot, plus his face looks more thin in structure!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Oh I love the fact that "Diamond Ray of Disappearance" plays the He-Man theme tune so many times.

It implements it very strongly onto once's conscious and as a kid I loved this episode for the very reason.
One other "animation mistake" I always thought was interesting in this episode was Adam having miscolored belt-buckle when all Royal people are watching Orko's tricks. I think that image was even used on some VHS back-covers.
