Christmas Week(s) - Working for Horde Prime?

Before the update I just want to make mention of the extremely sad passing of animation legend Joseph Barbera of Hanna-Barbera Productions who died yesterday.

Another day, another video clip from "A Christmas Special". One of the most puzzling things in this He-Man and She-Ra special is the role of Skeletor. Here he appears to be working for Horde Prime, even though season one of the She-Ra series had already showed us that he was still very much an independent villain. This is one of the better scenes from this disappointing special.

Download the video clip!

Horde Prime is a loser! He makes Hordak and Skeletor way less evil. I think I need to draw some graphs to demonstrate.

If you wanted to try and make sense of this, you could argue that while Skeletor doesn't work for Horde Prime, HP's offering enough to make doing this worth Skeletor's while, and Skeletor's position on Eternia makes him a useful resource for the Horde in this case, as well as providing an extra spur to push Hordak into working harder. :-)

(And on a tangent, am I the only fanfic author who's treated the Christmas Special as canonical, or are there others? :-) )

Yeah, it's kinda strange..but the Special seemed kinda like a "Special" in the sense that they were going to break rules and do things just for the sake of entertainment. But, I agree. It don't make no sense!

It's nice to see Skeletor betray the Horde, again. That seems like such a fun story element.

Skeletor/Hordak arguments are always amusing, such as the one in this scene ... Both villains look like two professional wrestlers about to square off, in this image! I get a kick out of the way Skeletor and Hordak go after one another on how each of them cannot beat their respective "enemies," as well as the final dialogue between the two, when it comes to whomever may be "well rewarded" by Horde Prime, for this scene...
Skeletor: "That's meee!"
Hordak: "We'll see about that!" :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
