Happy Birthday He-Man #1 - Sword held aloft...

Yes, on this very day twenty-four years ago He-Man and the Masters of the Universe premiered in the UK before any other country in the world! Little did Filmation or Mattel know at the time that their new cartoon series would influence the lives of millions of young children. For all of us who grew up in the eighties, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was a big part of our childhoods. The characters, settings, and stories will never be forgotten!

To celebrate He-Man's twenty-fourth birthday I am featuring TWENTY-FOUR He-Man entries in one single session! :)

So, let the fun begin...

Here is a fantastic Robin Davies illustration from the Ladybird book "He-Man and the Lost Dragon". What I love about this image is that it has a great Filmation-feel to it, and it makes me wish that the directors at Filmation had used this angle for an alternate transformation sequence!

Agreed! Very well done! This angle gives me the impression of the camera moving farther away from He-Man, for added drama, if this was in the animation process. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
