The Army of Robots?

For some unknown reason the He-Man season one episode "Like Father, Like Daughter" was continuously mistakenly marked up on video covers in the UK as "The Army of Robots". To this day I have no idea as to why it happened. Let the speculation begin!

Wasn't the title also called, "The Robot Army" on some video releases, and wasn't "Dawn of Dragoon" one of the other featured episodes on the set? Anyway, both titles work for me! :)

Before the DVD releases, I always saw the version of the episode where the color in the picture quality changes to a more greenish tone, later on in Act 2, when He-Man uses his scanner to locate Man-At-Arms, and Teela exclaims, "But that's the mountain!" I got a kick out of that glitch. :)

Thanks for reading! God Bless...

KevyGuy, you're not wrong! There was indeed another volume that called it "The Robot Army" - "Dawn of Dragoon" was on that set. Why they got the title so staggeringly wrong I'll never know...

I've heard you mention this on Chronicles and always thought that was very stranger, especially since the title offers no threat of being inappropriate.

I guess Select Video/Channel 5 changed the title deliberately to try and appeal to young boys.

I don't think a name like 'Like Father, Like Daughter' would sound too exciting for them, at least that's my theory on the name change for the video case, but it sure made us scratch our heads when the episode had a completily different title card, probably making some peple think that they brought the wrong video?

Honestily Select first you scare people with your ident and now you confuse people, no wonder you ddin't last for too long in the UK video market, LOL. :D

How very odd that they didnt even watch the episode to see what it was called. I have no idea why this was called the wrong episode, very odd
