Sad Skeletor...

Don Manuel was known for his incredibly detailed storyboards throughout his time at Filmation, most notably on He-Man and She-Ra. Very rarely would he put over expressive comedy into his boards. However, in this panel from "Horde Prime Takes A Holiday" we see Skeletor's despondent face illustrated with a great deal of comedic value!

Skeletor also has that tired "tough day on the job" expression on his face! ~"KevyGuy" :)

LOL, this image is very amusing - even though it's exaggerated, I think the animators did a good job of capturing Skeletor's mood here, whilst still keeping him "on model"! :)

Now this is funny! Skeletor looks like the Scream mask that came from the movies of the same name. You know the ones people tend to wear at Halloween instead of Jason or Michael Myers.

This episode had lots happening in the story. This expression of Skeletor actually fits well with what goes on in the episode.

Almost makes you feel sorry Skeletor which is very unusual. A black and white drawing that springs to life!

You could tell that as the series went on, Skeletor became more and more disgruntled with his henchmen. And with good reason, the evil warriors did become less threatening and bigger dumb-bells over time.

Haha, I also immediately thought of the Scream mask when I saw the sketch! I can just imagine Skelly on the phone to the Sorceress asking her about her favourite scary movie. Classic!

It is so cool to see how such a simplistic drawing can still get across the emotion on Skeletor's face.
