Mick Jagger influence?

Admiral Scurvy was by far one of the best guest villains in the She-Ra animated series. His appearance in the two part "Anchors Aloft" was a visual treat, and he would often steal the scene when appearing on screen. Even as a kid, watching this episode I could not help but compare his face to that of Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones. Amusingly when I finally read Bob Forward's script in his lengthy description of Admiral Scurvy he states, "Think Mick Jagger turned vampire". It is nice to know that the character designers adhered to this!

"He can't get no satisfaction." :) Awesome info! I like how the villain's voice sounds a lot like Hordak's, plus his "That makes me mad" scenes are classic. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Turned vampire? I thought Mick Jagger was already a vampire.
