She-Ra versus Hordak #1

One of the most memorable confrontations between She-Ra and Hordak in the She-Ra series occurred in the season one episode "A Loss for Words", directed beautifully by Tom Sito. The fight scene was particularly notable for showcasing Hordak's ability to change his form, as well as She-Ra's physical prowess. The fight scene would later be reused in the season two episode "The Caregiver", and while the initial shot of Hordak transforming into flying-fisted spinning top was reanimated, the rest of the footage from the fight was simply taken from the previous episode and reshot. The images on the left are from "A Loss for Words", while the images on the right are from "The Caregiver".

Hordak looks like he lost weight from his transformed version, between the last two images! :)

Ah Filmation; the masters of re-using animated sequences over and over again. :D

Well at least they don't wind up re-using the same sequences over and over again in every episode. ;)
