Hordak's eyes!

Mark Glamack was one of the new directors that came on board as soon as She-Ra's season one went into production. Often calling for new animation Mark created a simply stunning expression on the part of Hordak in the episode "A Talent for Trouble." As the Evil Horde leader attempts to figure out the mind of Orko his expression changes to one of pure shock! Look how Hordak's neck is forward, with his ridiculously bulging eyes showing for the first and only time his yellow pupils; probably drawn on for comic effect more than anything else!

A few weeks ago, I was watching my home video copy of this episode, and it was hysterical ... Hordak's crazy expression just comes out of nowhere! If I can remember correctly, he shouts something like:
"NO-N-N-NO! This can't be!"

One of the things I get a kick out in the "She-Ra" series is how the animation for Hordak gets a little TOO cartoony on some occasions, like in this scene and when Mantenna dropped him down the trap door in "A Loss For Words!"

It was also a hoot when Hordak transformed his arm into a miniature cannon to destroy the device, afterward, as the device stated:
"Hordak is a meanie! Hordak is a meanie..."
So much for "Horde Science!" LOL :)

This was definitely one of the funniest crossover episodes of the She-Ra series, and it was a treat to see this hilarious image in DVD quality! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

LOL I think Hordak can stretch on rare occasions for them goofy animation-moments.

Just think about the scoobydoo-esque way in "A Christmas Special" when Monstroid appear and Hordak runs away in a very comical fashion with funny sound-effect and everything. :)
