Panini sticker album art #43

When I was a kid, one of my most prized possessions was the Masters of the Universe sticker album by Panini. I still remember the day my mother purchased the album for me. Aside from the fun of collecting the stickers themselves I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Filmation-accurate illustrations that could be found on each and every page. I thought it would be a good idea to showcase those illustrations on this very Blog!

Orko and his magical clones work together in order to entertain his friends...

"Prisoner of Veelos"

As He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was developed into a series, the staff writers at Filmation came up with a wealth of proposed story premises. Numerous episodes were never developed beyond the early stages. Showcased below is one of those abandoned episodes, alongside a title card that I have created to show what might have been. Please note that in some of these synopses Orko is still referred to as Gorpo, Evil-Lyn as Desira, and the Evil Warriors as the Masters of the Universe. The Sorceress does not appear to have been fully developed at this point either; with many references instead to the Spirit of Grayskull. Also, Stratos is a villain; much like he was in the early Mattel material. All of the original spellings (Tee-La, Beastman, etc.) are also retained for authenticity.

The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe features many more abandoned episodes!

"Prisoner of Veelos"
On a trek through the Forest of Elves, Prince Adam and Tee-La are captured by the tiny Zaculon people, who are engaged in a bitter struggle with Veelos, the giant. He-Man vows to help them, until he meets Veelos -- no ordinary giant, Veelos is a fifty-foot tall cyclops!


* Legally I should say that Douglas Booth did NOT write this episode. This is merely an example of how the episode title card might have looked.
