Evil oops!

"Things That Go Bump in the Night" features an amusing scene between Evil-Lyn and Clawful. After yet another defeat at the hands of the Heroic Warriors the evil Skeletor wanting to test his warriors' courage demands that each of them walk an energy beam tightrope over a deep pit. Evil-Lyn is first and accomplishes walking the beam, as does Clawful who just loses his balance towards the end. In order to save himself he leaps to safety only to land with his arms wrapped around Evil-Lyn's waist with his head on her chest, his face in a desperately thankful look! Evil-Lyn is shocked, and the two turn away from each other in a delightfully spiteful pose. As you can see from the images below the animator did a fine job portraying the emotions of the two warriors! It also should be noted that the pairing of Evil-Lyn and Clawful is a rare one, having only been used previously in "The Witch and The Warrior."

What a fantastic screen grab. I really can't believe some of the stuff you are digging up, I just never imagined it in the MotUverse.

The image on the left kind of looks like a romantic one, in a deranged way! As for the image on the right, Evil-Lyn is beautifully animated with her usual sinister expression, but Clawful is the winning character, as far as humor, just because he looks more "cartoony" between the two! :)

The before-and-after shots of Clawful, earlier on, are great, too, when he states, "Skeletor runs things now, but someday, I'll tell on him," and Skeletor overhears Clawful and puts him in his place! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Very nice. I love the expressions and acting that Filmation used in the series. Everything they did was Amazing.

Oh Clawful, you are awful, copping a feel like that! But by the look on his face he know's his gonna be punished for this later on. Evil-Lyn never forgets.

Clawful did strike as one cunning villain in the show. Thanks to his comments in "Things that Always Go Bump in the Night" so it was great to see this scene in the same episode.

Quite the ladies man....
