Bad titles...

One of my few problems with The New Adventures of He-Man series are the titles for each episode. Instead of the beautifully crafted title cards we had for the Filmation series, this series merely overlaid the text onto the first shot of the episode. Now at the time of production this was nothing new, as numerous shows were already utilizing the same title graphics. However, my problem is with the differing quality of title graphics! Some episode titles look bold and stand out well against the episode footage, but there are a few, like "You're in the army now" where the title looks horrible to say the least!

Yes, I see what you mean, James ... Sometimes the text looks like the kind of type-style and even the size of the text that we see in the scripts for the episodes!

The animation is defenately brighter in episodes like these, however because of that you'll sometimes find it hard to read the episode titles unless they're in super bold. :D

In the K.K. C&D episodes, the colour might be a bit duller, but you could at least see what the episode is called. ;) :D
