Anyhow, He-Man goes with them, while Skeletor sneaks on board for the trip. They both arrive a great new world full of advanced technology, nice people and- by the way, space pirate surrounding the entire place! Skeletor joins up with a group of them after they are defeated by He-Man.
* One story revolves around Skeletor seeking out a crystal to increase his strength. In the end, he has seemingly-lost when the crystal is destroyed. However, he actually got the power first and kept it for the rest of the series!
* The cast is full of characters with ridiculous names and one-trick-pony powers. For example, you have Slushhead, Staghorn and Flipshot.
* Lastly, he has a very peculiar ally: Sagitar, a half-man/half-man centaur. I'll give you a moment to process that and then show you his toy.
That's The New Adventures of He-Man in a nutshell. A weird and quirky take on the character featuring aliens and spaceships instead of swords and magic. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but delivers all of the conventional fun that Saturday morning cartoons gave us. Why I don't remember ever seeing it as a kid is beyond me. If you've never heard of it, give it a look. It may not blow your mind, but it's something of note still.
*Up next, a pair of updates looking at the two shows based on everyone's favorite green lizard. Stay tuned...
