Heroes of Mondor.

"The Mines of Mondor" is one of my favorite She-Ra episodes; a breath of fresh air. Granted, it's just a rescue plot, but it's executed so much better than most of the others. The background artists were given new locations to paint, finally breaking away from the Whispering Woods and the Fright Zone! Some of the images in this episode are incredibly memorable, and below I present to you one of those very images. Very rarely does a shot look so beautiful; the heroes looking across Kyrtis' landscape as the breeze gently brushes against them. And yes, Filmation animated the hair and the capes!

I agree - it's a most memorable scene and speaks 'anticipation'.

Lots of colorful scenery during this scene ... The pretty flowers in this shot add a nice touch, as well. :)

It was also a treat to take in the scenery that was reused from He-Man's "Valley Of Power" (As mentioned in "Loo-Kee's Fun Facts," on the DVD set), once again. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

The Rebellion REALLY needed to break away from the two locations; Whispering Woods and Fright Zone.

Any place (even visiting Eternia) would be a breath of fresh air, and I believe the painters were more than happy to contribute new scenery for the characters. :)
