Put me down...

The rebels fought against the Horde Troopers in many an episode of She-Ra. The goal for the staff working on each episode was to make these fight scenes original, and not too repetitive. Given Filmation's use of stock animation, this was often hard to achieve. However the season one episode "The Prisoners of Beast Island" features a very original and highly amusing fight scene featuring Bow, Kowl and a malfunctioning Horde Trooper. The scene boarders on slapstick...

The funny thing about this scene is that after the Horde Trooper takes the damage, it still captures Bow! His remark towards the Trooper is great: "Put me down, you revolting robot!" The way Bow's eyes circle around, after he is hit on the head by the coconut, is a scream, too! :)

Thanks for reading! God Bless...

Slapstick joke indeed! Poor Bow, always the easy target for jokes on the part of Filmation. Being in the arms of that Horde Trooper they look like a couple out for a romantic stroll... :)

Bow just cannot catch a break in the She-Ra series. it would have been great to see him cross over into the He-Man show to see how he would have helped out.
