Minicomic cartoon reference.

In the superbly-illustrated Bruce Timm minicomic "King of the Snake Men" there is an interesting comment made by Kobra Khan, which clearly acknowledges the animated appearances of both Rattlor and Tung Lashor. Shortly after King Hiss has summoned the two Snake Men, Kobra Khan informs King Hiss that his spells are not working correctly, citing that both Rattlor and Tung Lashor are two warriors that serve The Evil Horde on Etheria! This is of course in reference to the fact that in the She-Ra animated series both Snake Men were indeed seen working for Hordak in certain episodes. Admittedly, they were also confusingly seen working for Skeletor at one time, too! It is nice to think that the minicomic attempted to address the situation...

Agreed, and this would have translated perfectly to a Filmation episode, had these three been featured in the cartoon together. :) Great color variety in these panels, but both Snake Men look rather odd to me without some kind of armor or attire on the upper halves of their bodies!

That reference always confused me as a kid, since I never realized until many years later that Tung Lashor and Rattlor had featured in the She-Ra series.
