Futuristic workman?

Tom Sito's storyboards for the season two He-Man episode "The Greatest Show on Eternia" are fantastic. Each and every page is filled with wonderful visual treats and gags. Here are two amusing panels in which Orko watches a workman put up a poster with a long glue brush. Tom calls the workman a "futuristic workman" in the first panel, but jokingly illustrates a normal everyday Earth-based workman; even going so far as to have the character smoking!

Looks a little like "Popeye" on the left! :) ~"KevyGuy" :)

That is awesome! I love the design on the workman and Orko's expression is priceless!

I've come to this site quite often, though I don't think I've ever commented before. I'm going to change that though and I want to say first off, thank you for all the wonderful material you post on this site.

So many of these great shows from the 80s are overlooked or outright reviled by so many animation historians and it's a crying shame.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is one of the best animated programs ever made. It had something for everyone and it holds up every bit as well today as it did then.

Again, thank you so much. I love your website and look forward to everything you post here.

I think this is another example of the artists having fun with the storyboards, as to not get caught in boredom. I imagine that the artist had to try to make it as fun as he could to make it more enjoyable.

These storyboards from this episode have given me more enjoyment than the actual "The Greatest Show On Eternia" episode.

I really enjoy these storyboard images from "Greatest Show" - it's perhaps ironic that the episode I consider to be the worst of the series (yes, worse even than "Monster On The Mountain", which, controversially, I quite like!) has such great storyboard artwork! :)
