Ecto goggles?

Here are a couple of interesting images from The New Adventures of He-Man episode "The Nemesis Within". For those that have ever watched an episode of The Real Ghostbusters it would appear that Skeletor is wearing a pair of Ecto goggles, as worn by the Ghostbusters themselves! This may have something to do with the fact that the animation company working on The New Adventures of He-Man were also working on The Real Ghostbusters! There is a strong chance that the model for the goggles was merely carried over from one series to another...

Ha, ha. :) Wow, never noticed that! A hilarious sight would have to be the Filmation version of Skeletor looking through these goggles or any kind of goggles, actually! :) ~"KevyGuy" :)

That's interesting, I never knew it was the same animation company. Could explain Tuskador's uncanny likeness to the cartoon version of Peter Venkman as well.

Ah yes K.K. C&D Asia liked to reuse a few of the 'gadget' model sheets from RGB and used them in this show.

There was also a time when they re-used the PKE Meter design in one episode, as memory serves. ;)
