Aroo is Hanuman?

In the script for the season one He-Man episode "Masks of Power", the guardian of the masks, Aroo, is described to look like Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god! A few quick searches on the Internet will show you how Hanuman slightly influenced the design of Aroo. Aroo would of course later appear as the character model for Braylok in the episode "The Return of Granamyr".

Awesome info! I love this image, because it is so atmospheric! I get a kick out of the animation of Aroo taking a swipe at He-Man and Man-At-Arms, while they just stand there, based on this image! Aroo must have bad aim. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
