Madame Razz and Broom design!

Here is an interesting piece of development artwork of Madame Razz and Broom, as featured in the She-Ra Series Bible. Even at this stage of development you can see where the characters were heading. Filmation character designers would then re-work these initial designs over and over again until the characters began to adapt to Filmation's style.

Aha! The sequel to the 25th of November 2009 feature! Razz has a face like Mr. Smee (S.P? From Disney's "Peter Pan" movie). :) Poor Broom has no arms, but it's nice that the final version of him didn't change too much.
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

I agree these are very Disney like. I was thinking of Madam Mimm from the Sword in the Stone.

Ooh, she's a bit too obviously based on Madame Mim from the Sword in the Stone here. Madame Razz's voice is another one that i'm not quite sure about it. Melendy or Linda? And even though a lot of people compare her to Orka because of the hidden face, I think she's more likely related to the Twiggets, hence the same skin colour.

Im very glad they didn't go w that design for Razz. Brooms design as I've said before works both ways but she looks like she doesn't belong...like in another cartoon world, an old hanna barbara cartoon from the 60s maybe.

Razz looks like a fat man! This is so strange to look at.
