Did You Know?

Trivia

In the original series, Prince Adams' pet green tiger, Cringer, could talk. The producers of this remake decided keeping that would make the series seem for too young for the audience they were intended to appeal to. Furthermore, they were confident they could make him expressive enough through his face and movements to compensate. See more »

Crazy Credits

Unlike the Filmation series, in which the cast list was listed without corresponding characters, in this series the characters are identified by voice actor. However, the spelling of many of the character names is very inconsistent, not only compared to previously established way of writing them, but even from one episode to another. And sometimes, characters and voice actors are listed who were not in the episode in question. See more »

Alternate Versions

The first three episodes ("The Beginning: Part 1", "The Beginning: Part 2" and "The Beginning: Part 3") originally aired as one ninety-minute TV movie on August 16 before they were broken down into three thirty-minute episodes which began airing on August 30. No material was cut from the thirty-minute versions and the ninety-minute version didn't feature the opening title sequence. See more »

A Vast Improvement on The Original
30 April 2003 | by Ken-120See all my reviews

I used to watch the original He-Man series, but eventually I grew out of it after realizing just how poorly budgeted and written it was, albeit with with notable exceptional episodes.

However, this series is a perfect example of the best kind of remake. The producers obviously examined the original series thoroughly and set out to play up the best elements of the series and rectify the weaknesses. As a result, the series boasts vastly superior animation that avoids the constant cycles and other crudities of Filmation's work. There is also wonderful writing with stories that are so well paced that each episode has the feel of a feature film with the amount of content they manage to pack in. The characters are formed with intricate detail and it allows for a truly compelling viewing experience.

It is a pleasure to see a remake finally be everything that it should be.
