Shakes off the snow.

In these three panels by Rich Chidlaw from the season one He-Man episode "The Region of Ice" we see King Randor buried under the snow, comically shake it off, and then look concerned for Queen Marlena. The over-the-top movement in the second panel is incredibly well-rendered as King Randor shakes his head from side to side in an effort to remove the snow. Once again Rich uses a marker to create shadows which sadly would never be acknowledged as production on the episode's animation began. Also, note Man-At-Arms' concerned expression; he looks close to tears!

Too bad that they didn't design civilian clothes for them. :(

Should've also included few guards. Entrusting safety of the Royal family to only 2 people is kinda crazy.

Ha ha. :) Yeah, I see what you mean about Man-At-Arms, James! Also check out King Randor's face and expression which looks similar to his expression in "Prince Adam No More," for the shot where the Shadow Beasts have King Randor and Man-At-Arms in their possession! :)
