This was a revival of the classic 80's cartoon He-man and the Masters of the Universe for the modern age, it focused on the early adventures of Prince Adam, who, having just become Eternia's most powerful guardian He-Man, had to learn how to handle his new powers, and lead his allies into battle against the evil Skeletor. With the aid of his own Evil Warrior henchmen, Skeletor schemes to blanket Eternia in chaos, and rule over the planet in dominion. Only He-Man, guided and advised by the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull, stands in his way.
With the aid of his trusted friends and Masters, he vows to end Skeletor's evil and the other evils that plague Eternia. The battle is joined as Good and Evil collide in a fight for Eternia's fate!
This unique take on the retro fan favorite delighted and entertained the children of this decade as it did to those living in the 80's.
After the runaway success of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in 1983 led to a spate of toy-based series that were broadcast in syndication in America, He-Man returned in 2002, after the toys had been redesigned. Adam lost his Dutch boy hair cut and his body looked even more overdeveloped. The premise remained the unchanged: With the aid of the enchanted Sword of Power, Adam, the slacker-dude Prince of Eternia, becomes He-Man, the heroic defender of the realm against the evil machinations of Skeletor and his minions. Like Superman, Adam has to keep his alter-identity secret. But instead of spunky newswoman Lois Lane, his love interest is Teela, who insults and belittles him. From Snake Mountain, Skeletor hatches schemes to conquer Eternia, only to be thwarted by He-Man, with some help from Teela, Man-at-Arms, et al. With the possible exception of Evil-Lyn, Skeletor's henchmen are such doofuses, they don't feel like much of a threat. The battle between good against evil is so simplistic, it makes Dragon Ball look nuanced. The filmmakers try to capture some of the excitement of anime fantasy-adventures, but they pull their punches--literally and figuratively. Although the combatants twirl swords and pole arms like martial artists, no blood is shed and no one gets seriously injured. He-Man only uses his Sword of Power to deflect energy blasts: he slugs bad guys and monsters. The disc of extras includes video commentaries and animatics for three episodes, audio commentaries on five episodes and an extensive image gallery. (Rated TV Y7: violence) --Charles Solomon

I would give this product 5 stars except for the defect in Adam's Courage where it skips several scenes. Otherwise excellent cartoon.Published on August 20, 2009 by Momof2

No, only about a third of the episodes as the series will be released as a series of three volumes. Now how many episodes in this set, I don't know. But with three discs, it'll probably be around 18 or so. Nope, I'm wrong...just checked TVShowsOnDVD.com and they say 13. 3rd disc must be for... Read More
