Throw the villain #3

This is the third installment, and hopefully the last, to highlight He-Man's repeated technique of dealing with frontal attacks from the villains of Eternia. We first saw how the most powerful man in the universe dealt with Mer-Man in "Diamond Ray of Disappearance"; then we witnessed He-Man use the same technique to defeat a warrior from Eternia's past. And finally, in the episode "Evil-Lyn's Plot" we see He-Man demonstrate once more his technique for sidestepping an opponent and throwing them into the air; and unfortunately for Mer-Man it is he once again who is the recipient!

Funny how Mer-Man only makes growling sounds throughout this scene and doesn't actually speak any dialogue! The upcoming moment, featuring both Mer-Man and Beast-Man being thrown by the tree branch, was a real hoot as was the scene featuring Skeletor standing between two demonic-looking fiery vases. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless!

Ah yes, picking up a person and throwing him away was deemed less violent than hitting or kicking them. The same thing was always done to Brainy Smurf in the cartoon whereas in the original strips he would usually be knocked out with a mallet!
