Thank goodness!

The He-Man episode "A Friend in Need" is well-remembered for a scene where Prince Adam transforms into He-Man as he falls towards certain doom. An odd moment occurs when falling from the sky He-Man grabs hold of a tower and we see his mouth move. However no dialogue comes out, but the script clearly indicates that he is supposed to say "Thank goodness!"

Did you know that in the spanish translation He-Man does speak in that scene?
He says "Thank the Heavens".
Just wanted to share this fact with you James.

Wow! I checked this out on my DVD the other day ... That's amazing! In the Spanish dialogue, He-Man sounds so relaxed. :)

When you reviewed this episode on the old website, James, I remember how you commented on how amazing it was that He-Man didn't hinder his arm while he fell at such force, as he grabbed the side of the building. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
