He-Man DOES NOT have his sword!

So, as the storyboard artist to "The Taking of Grayskull" how do you ensure that your vision stays true and that He-Man's sword does not appear in its sheathe in the final animated production? Well, Don Manuel somewhat comically put a large note after page sixteen of the storyboard to remind everyone involved in the process that for a certain part of the episode He-Man DOES NOT have his sword!

:) Makes me think of a televised public service announcement or a billboard while driving along a busy highway!

Reminds me of the goof-up scene from "Teela's Quest," when He-Man frees Teela from Mer-Man's restraints, by throwing his sword, then in the close-up shot of He-Man, as he states, "Teela, use my sword," the Power Sword is back in it's sheath ... I'll never forget that one! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
