I bought this under the ruse of wanting to share some of my childhood with my son; in reality, I wanted it for myself. I love this show, with all its cheesy details and reused animation sequences. Two things I love about the He Man empire (TV show, toys, etc): 1) The cartoon is/was very bold in explaining the differences between right and wrong (something that is all but lost in 21st century America) and 2) it was sheer genius from a business point of view! Cartoons were filmed on a shoestring with "repurposed" character likenesses and reused animation sequences. The toy line was also genius for many of these same reasons. For example, Stinkor and Mer-man were basically the same action figure with different paint--genius.
Season 2 is great because we're introduced (or re-introduced) to many new characters such as Robot, Buzz-off, Mekaneck, Clawful, Two Bad, Spikor, Webstor, Fisto, and the list goes on and on. I love these DVDs and I WILL share them with my son when he gets older. The bonus features are great--interviews with the writers and animators, character profiles complete with scenes featuring the profiled character, colorful box-enclosed cased, etc. The only reason I didn't get this 5 stars was for the same reason many complain about this DVD set--the packaging. The case is great, but the paper sleeves jammed into a CD cased-sized hole in the case seems cheap, is cumbersome, and detracts from the over-all quality of this set. A must-buy.

Like quite a few other reviews have also stated, I, too grew up with this cartoon. I buy cartoon DVD's on a fairly consistent basis for my own enjoyment and when He-Man became available in all it's glory I purchased it. I have Season One by another company, BCI, and I purchased Season Two by this company, Classic Media/Mill Creek Entertainment. I may purchase Mill Creek's Season One simply because they don't split up the episode, "House of Shokoti", on two separate DVD discs like the BCI release does.

But this review is about Mill Creek's Season Two release which I have. There are 8 disc's...the first 7 contain episodes of the series while the 8th is the Extra features disc. As mentioned in another review the discs are housed in paper sleeves...stacked one after the other...which causes one to have to rummage through the discs whenever you want to grab a particular one. The disc I find myself watching the most are Disc's 1 and 4 through 6. I watch disc 7 on occasion but it has the least amount of episodes...BUT it contains the episode giving Moss Man a lot of screen-time: "The Ancient Mirror of Avathar". It's also on this disc that "The Problem With Power" can be found. This particular episode is very deep and is one of just a couple of episodes that shed the good vs. evil overtone and dig deeper into the individual characters. In that episode you see He-Man transform back into Adam for the only time in the Filmation series history and you hear the phrase that he uses to instigate the transformation, too.

Speaking of character studies we get to see plenty of in-depth character studies in "Search for the Past" where the history of the character's are put front and center: King Randor's father, King Miro, turns out to be alive and held prisoner by The Enchantress.

My two boys loved this show when they were little. I spotted one at a store for $5 and decided to buy it for my grandsons. The boys are 4yrs old (twins) and a 7yr old. They absolutely loved it! I looked on Amazon for any more videos and found this second season, they watch it all the time. Their dad (my son) brought out the old figures he had of He man and they love them.

If you're not familiar with the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon, I'd suggest that you first read one of the many great reviews written about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: The Complete First Season because I'm mainly going to focus on how this season differs from the last.

On the surface, not too much changes. The initial opening sequence is identical to that of Season One's and there are no major additions or subtractions from the voice cast. However, that's not to say nothing is different. By 1984, (when this season was made) a lot of great new figures were being introduced to the toy line, so we get our first look at iconic characters such as Fisto, Two-Bad, Roboto, Spikor, Moss Man and others. Fortunately, all your favorites from Season One are still here as well.

I'd say there are three major differences between this season and the last.

1) The animation is much better. Sure, Filmation's visual style is still a bit limited in some aspects, but the backgrounds are much brighter and more detailed. Stock footage is still used a bit too much, but even that is at least toned down sonewhat.

2) The storylines are much deeper. Sure, it's kiddie fare still and while there are some episodes that are more laughfest than anything, we are treated to some episodes like "Search for the Past", "The Time Wheel", "Battlecat", "The Rainbow Warrior" and "The Origin of the Sorceress" which greatly expand on the mythos of He-Man and those around him.

3) Skeletor's evil army actually feels like an evil army. One of my biggest complaints about the first season is that the "bad guys" really don't do much.
