Shocked Skeletor!

"Of Shadows and Skulls" from She-Ra's season one featured some unique moments of Skeletor-centric animation. It was as if the animators were overjoyed to be illustrating Skeletor once again, who was a favorite amongst the staff at Filmation. In this image you can see Skeletor looking so surprised that his hood almost falls away from his skull! I was always a fan of the somewhat comical expressions for Skeletor, even though by rights his skull should not express any emotion! Then again, Skeletor is a talking skull...

This is just as entertaining as watching Skeletor's shocked expression from "The Mystery of Man-E-Faces," when The Collector falls down the Abyss! The sound he makes in both scenes is just as hilarious, too. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Very close in resemblence to a certain Alfredo P. Alcala drawing in the He-Man "Power of Point Dread & Danger at Castle Grayskull" storybook (with audio-cassette).

hahaha Best expression ever. Skeletor had to begin realising that sinse he could never win from He-Man, he might as well pack it in after She-Ra appeared on the side of good as well.

What is funny is how so many people complained about the look for NA Skeletor with the eyes and all. Yet Filmation's Skeletor had lots of facial expressions!

A very funny piece of animation with Skeletor showing a funny expression that a skeleton shouldnt do. A great shot!
