Still fiddling around with new ways to capture oldass cartoons, and managed to retrofit one of the greatest animated intros of all time with a little higher definition
Okay, I gave He-Man and She-Ra’s Christmas Special its fair share of shit, and rightfully so! I grew up loving this homoerotic masterpiece, only to grow up and feel utterly betrayed by what basically amounted to a crass, colorful commercial for ludicrous, although admittedly, badass action figures, featuring incredibly poor and/or recycled animation.
Anybody else have that sword in glow-in-the-dark yellow?!
You took advantage of me, Filmation! But damned if He-Man’s intro doesn’t get me every single time…
Right hearing the Filmation logo pour out (Doodly-doodly-doodly-doo-DING!), to the seizure-inducing transformation sequences and that unforgettable musical theme, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe could very well have the greatest opening in cartoon history!
Not all that evil, actually
It perfectly establishes the heroic premise, introduces nearly a dozen characters – both good and bad, and let’s be honest, features a higher quality of animation than you’ll find in any of the 100 plus, mind-numbing episodes throughout the original series’ highly successful 1983-1985 run.
OOOOH, look out evil plastic!
