TWENTY-EIGHT years ago at 4.20pm...

It's hard to believe, but at 4.20pm today on the 5th September 1983, some TWENTY-EIGHT years ago, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe had its WORLD premiere in the UK! Oddly the series wouldn't premiere in the USA until September 26th. The first episode aired was naturally the pilot episode "Diamond Ray of Disappearance". In celebration of that day I thought it would be interesting to showcase three pages from the season two He-Man Series Bible. These pages are notable as they specifically point out how the first season's worth of episodes have ventured away from the material found within the original Series Bible.

Experts can pick out which of these episodes the various scenarios come from, and this sums up how Season One of the series was handled. "We'll be long gone" was always one of the more amusing quotes for me. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Some very interesting comments there - it's impressive how well the writers actually managed to incorporate the "non-violence" directive and yet still make He-Man feel like a very action-packed show! :)

It's interesting to see that they make the "moral" sound optional, when I can't imagine an episode that didn't have one. Then again, maybe someone forgot, and that's how we got the random "Has anyone touched you inappropriately?" moral from one of the "She-Ra" episodes.

How scary that this was so many years ago. A moment that defined many a childhood and brings us all together as He-man fans. Ive a lot to be thankful for! Met some great people because of this terrific series!

"There is no Point Dread" That line makes me sad. I loved the look of that toy. Though the way it was supposed to appear and disappear at will on top of Grayskull was a bit far fetched, even by Eternian standards.

I never knew it premiered in the UK first. You guys had the power before us in the USA!
