We’re going to do a little reminiscing about the great movie songs of the 80s. I’m not talking about Take My Breath Away (Top Gun) or Oh Yeah (Ferris Beuller’s Day Off), I’m talkin’ bout the sometimes totally sappy, sometimes completely rocking soundtrack features of the animated movies of the 80s. From cinematic features to TV specials, we’re gonna do a little rewind to some musical classics you might have forgotten starting with I Have the Power from He-man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword (1985).

Barbie, PJ Sparkles, the My Little Ponies with the whole water-changes their butt-symbols thing, Rub-A-Dub Dog…) you get my drift. Man-E-Faces was from series 2 of MOTU, here shown with a mini comic and weapon. Image courtesy TooGroovyToys,com.
Trap-Jaw is from series 2 of MOTU and comes with all his interchangeable arm accessories as well as a mini-comic. There’s something about him that really reminds me of the robot in the Scooby Doo Where Are You? shows– hold on—yep- Charlie the Funland Robot (looking more like Jason than Jason).

From series 1 of MOTU comes Teela with full accessories and mini-comic.Teela used to get on my nerves in the cartoon, being the whole guardian of Prince Adam but not knowing he was He-Man.. I mean seriously not a very good guardian all told. I didn’t like her hair either. Image property TooGroovyToys.com.
I guess little boys in the 80s needed their own faerie-tale figure and Mattel answered with Merman, a figure from MOTU series 1. Nice shoulder pads, dude. Image courtesy TooGroovyToys.com.
