Razz dare not watch...

I am a big fan of the way in which Terry Gabbey illustrated Madame Razz throughout the She-Ra Ladybird book "She-Ra and the surprise party". His unique style appeared to suit Madame Razz the best, as he drew her with a certain joie de vivre, relying less on her comedic costume and more on the character's physicality. Dare I say, I prefer his interpretation of the character over the Filmation character model!

Razz' reaction is much like Orko, whenever he casts a spell and hopes that it will work! Broom's doubtful expression is hilarious, too. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I had this book (and the audio tape :D) when I was younger and I loved the illastrations in this and how close they were to the cartoon.

I always found that the casette really brought out the atmosphere in certain scenes like when Cattra recieves the invitation to Madame Razz's Birthday Party and how eerie the Fright Zone seemed to be in the background.

This version of Razz looks more thought out than the version of filmation. There seems to be more depth to the character here than in the cartoon.

This is a lovely drawing. Great to see Broom and Adora in the background! Do some magic and hope it works, thats the Razz and Orko way!

The Ladybird books seemed to do a really good job with certain characters, and Madame Razz was definitely one of those characters - her personality traits and relationship to Adora seemed to really suit several of the stories that the writers of the books were trying to tell, and that's reinforced by the illustrations! :)
