Happy Birthday He-Man #2 - Beast Man's Bite!

Celebrating his capture of King Randor in the He-Man season one episode "Prince Adam No More" the evil Beast Man proceeds to eat and drink with Mer-Man. A beautifully expressive piece of animation can be seen in these four images as Beast Man, in one of the most vicious devourings of meat ever created for a cartoon series, bites into the meat bone with fury!

This was one of the most hilarious bits of animation, on behalf of the villains, in the He-Man series! I get a kick out of how the sound effect used for Beast-Man devouring the meat is actually one of the stock monster noises! :)

Beast-Man's mouth really stretches far in this shot, kind of like the still that you featured in the episode review of "Three On A Dare," when Skeletor's henchmen are slipping and sliding on the oil that He-Man spills ... Beast-Man's jaw literally drops to the floor! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

It's always great when a Filmation character goes from the standard model into an exaggeration like this. And of course the villains lend themselves perfectly to this kind of action.

That scene is a fantastic showcase of Beast Man going full fang-mode on that drumstick. Would have liked seeing more exaggerated animation like this. Thanks for sharing these screengrabs James!
