Trap Jaw xeroxes to cam.

Here are a couple of panels from one of my favorite slapstick moments from the season one He-Man episode "The Region of Ice". These panels illustrated by Rich Chidlaw show the fantastically comedic moment when Trap Jaw is thrown at Skeletor and Beast Man, who are unable to step aside as they are stood on ice. I love Trap Jaw's expression in the first panel as well as the contorted bodies of both Skeletor and Beast Man as they slide on the ice. It is a shame that the expression of Trap Jaw did not translate to the actual episode. Fortunately, the animators still made this scene one of the most hilarious moments in the series!

Agreed, and what about the blatant mistake in color for Trap Jaw's lower jaw for the actual animation! This really IS a hilarious take on Trap Jaw with the wide eyes, and Beast Man pointing in horror, for both versions, is always a hoot. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
