He-Man and the Masters of the Universe® is a landmark in children s television history, being the first nationally syndicated television program based on a successful toy line. Originally produced from 1983-1985 by world renowned Filmation studios and syndicated until 1990, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe has experienced consistent popularity over the years, demonstrated by its two subsequent animated series which aired in 1990 1991 and 2002 2004 as well as its multi-year run as an exceptionally successful toy and merchandising line for Mattel® .

Join forces with He-Man and the powerful Masters of the Universe® and go up against the evil forces of Skeletor to save the planet Eternia and to protect the secrets of Castle Grayskull.

4.0 out of 5 stars He-Man, the Mill Crrek Version February 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There has been some confusion about the contents and quality of this set. Let me assure you most of the BCI goodness is here.

What it has:

- The picture and sound are very good for an 80s show and I would be shocked if its anything other than the BCI masters (I used to own them but sold them, wish I hadn't).

- There are 5 scripts, 50 profiles and 2 documentaries.

- The episodes are presented in storyline order, not air date order, for better or worse.

- The moral segment ("Safety first") at the end is included (Retro TV cuts those out, at least when I watched it).

- The DVDs themselves have the art the BCI series did. They are not double sided discs.

- The set even has the episode guide slip that I believe came with the BCI boxes.

What it does not have is the packaging and physical goodies of the BCI set. Its a double size Mill Creek case with the DVDs in protective envelopes and stacked in the case "square". Just like other Mill Creek releases, only bigger. Actually I like this mode of packaging, protective and easy to get to. But your mileage may vary. I wish it had the cards or whatever it was the BCI sets came with but not that big a deal.

With a $19.99 - $29.99 price tag if you don't have the BCI releases (and the physical goodies) and want the original He - Man serires buy this set. It's got all the content. Four and a half stars.

Note: Some of this was from memory (the BCI set I owned and sold :( ) so please correct me about the BCI set if I made any mistakes. I just wanted to clear the record about what was in the set and what wasn't there in this hastily written review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whacked packaging, excellent quality DVD July 1, 2011
I agree with most sentiments on here - the packaging, typical of Mill Creek, is pretty bad, considering that if you want to replace the default paper sleeves with something else, the case that houses the 8 dvd's is essentially useless. I wound up taking an empty 25 disc spindle and putting the He - Man dvd's in that just to make sure I wouldn't scratch the DVD's with the frequent removal of the dvd's from their cases.

With that said, the picture quality and sound is surprisingly pretty good (albeit there are on average about 10 episodes crammed up per dvd). I have a Denon receiver, a Sony HD TV, and some old school SONY dvd players but the episodes on the series look pretty crisp. At the time, I got this set for just under 13 dollars and to be quite frank, having 65 episodes of the first season for that price is a steal. Mind you, I've never owned the sets made available by BCI, although I did check them out from the library at one point. BCI sets are packed with more features but the Mill Creek version definitely has some interesting add ons.

As a person on a budget, I do not mind missing out on some added features that were made available by the BCI sets and what mattered to me the most is that what I originally bought this set for, the 65 episodes, did not disappoint. This one of the most cherished animated series that I've ever watched (Gargoyles, Batman the Animated Series, Justice League, Transformers, Voltron, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Scooby Doo, etc. being others) and as being a father of a 3 year old, this is definitely a series I would like to have my son watch. The fact that the violence is pretty minimal and that there's an importance piece of advice from He Man at the end of every episode (i.e. stealing, being cognizant of others, etc) is what makes this series ageless.

He-Man & The Masters of the Universe: Season One

When some of us were kids, we couldn't wait to get home from school and turn on the TV. A lot of our fondest memories were the great cartoons of the 80s and one that definitely stands out is He-man & The Masters of the Universe. As a child of the 80's, I had tons of He-man toys including Castle Grayskull. If you were also a child of the 80's, then you remember He-man on TV. Now that we've grown up, we can enjoy brief moments of our childhood on DVD with this boxed set.

This DVD set is the complete season 1 which consisted of 65 episodes. Mill Creek has recently gone out and started producing old TV show DVD sets which have gotten mixed reviews. They have received praises for selling relatively low priced DVDs, but the quality of some of their past DVDs have caused some consumers to worry.

I had the same worries as I went through the entire set. It took me almost a week watching a few episodes here and there. As I finished the entire set, I was glad to report that I had no problems with the DVDs. All the episodes played in its entirety. The DVD transfers were decent enough, but you do notice some quick pixels in sudden movements. Mill Creek did not spend much times in the transfer process, chances are they simply bought up the previous DVD rights release.

The last DVD had some decent documentaries with creators and writers. It was interesting hearing the story of how they got the series on air. Some parts got tedious because you can tell some of the writers just didn't remember much.

Now, I'm not going to cover all 65 episodes. There are some good episodes and there are some not so good ones.
