Orko passes the Sword of Power.

Every once in a while I like to point out the more obvious pieces of animation reuse in He-Man and She-Ra. However, in this case I will point out that the only thing reused is the layout artwork, as the cels in each of these three images are exclusive to their respective episodes. The first image is from "Disappearing Act", the second image is from "Quest for He-man", and the third image is from "Island of Fear". You would think Orko might tire of having to hand the Sword of Power over! Also, what makes me chuckle is how in each of these images the sword is drawn slightly different.

Ha, ha. :) You're right about the Sword of Power, James ... Between the first occasion and the others, I like how the sword grows bulbous features around the handle! In the final image, Orko has a look like he is asking Prince Adam, "How many more times do I have to do this for you?!" :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I really like the facial expression Prince Adam has on the last image from "Island of Fear". :)

Why is Adam's shirt light gray on the third picture? Which program were they using for the coloring anyway?
