Marlena's blue hair!

For those that saw the debut of The New Adventures of He-Man we were all happy to see the show acknowledge the Filmation series in the first episode "A New Beginning". However, while King Randor merely had a new color scheme for his costume, we were left scratching our heads as to why Queen Marlena now sported blue hair! Her appearance in the series will always enable me enjoy the scene regardless of her choice of hair color. Somewhat annoyingly critics of the show will focus on small moments like Queen Marlena's blue hair to back up their argument...

Maybe Queen Marlena heard about Catra's navy hair color and thought it was in style, so she thought she'd dye her hair that color just to try it out? I don't know. :)

Surprisingly, upon seeing this episode as a kid, I knew the series was going to different in alot of ways, so seeing Marlena w blue hair wasn't a real bother. At least Randor looked almost spot on.

It's Orko's fault. He was trying out some kind of reverse colour scheme trick and it backfired on the Queen.

The overall design of her hair is sound, however it was odd that she was promoting a Marge Simpson like colour for her hair, it was like the animators at K.K. C&D Asia knew that they were trying to compete with The Simpsonss. :D

Despite that, at least they were more or less true to form to the original Filmation couple. :)
