Maddock model sheet.

"To Save the Creatures" is one of the less impressive episodes of He-Man's season two. In fact, you could actually say it is one of the worst episodes of season two. There are only a few saving graces in the episode. Surprisingly, I actually like the character of Maddock. The premise of the sub-plot, in which he has a chance to replace Beast Man, is unique. However, in this episode it is wasted due to the annoying main plot which is a convoluted mess. I always like the subservient way in which Maddock has his head somewhat lowered much of the time, creating this creepy doe-eyed stare! To this day I am still not sure if he is supposed to be wearing a helmet of sorts, of it that is his actual hairstyle! Looking at the model sheet on the far left would seem to suggest that it is his hairstyle...

Maddock looks like a character who belonged on "Scooby Doo," and I think that if Modulok was in his place, the episode would have been a lot more exciting ... He just does not look like the kind of villain who would work for Skeletor, but this is a pretty good model sheet.

Diabolical episode with very out-of-place, badly drawn characters... This guy isn't MOTUish at all... he freaks me out. Looks like a paedo.

I am a big He-Man fan, I was searching information about the rotoscoping actors and the picture you posted in he-man.org led me here, your blog is amazing, where did you get all this information? did you work in filmation? amazing site!

Not sure how you could mistake his hair for a helmet. You can see the sweep of his fringe in the left picture.

I do like Kevin's idea of an episode where Modulok got a proper shot at working alongside Skeletor and co.
