Yello80s Advent Countdown Day 3: He-Man and She-Ra A Christmas Special

There’s just something so 80s about He-Man and She-Ra, particularly when he says ‘What works for my sister works for me.”  AHHHH THAT’S RIGHT, THEY’RE BROTHER AND SISTER. He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special courtesy Tokareva2009

80s animated soundtracks: I Have the Power

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).

He-Man Toy Month: Man-E-Faces

There’s something so high tech somehow about Man-E-Faces…maybe it was the mysterious button on the top of his head that ‘like magic’ turned his face around (somehow disgusting and handy all at the same time) and made him into his alter-ego. I’m not sure but toys with the presto chango factor were pretty big in the 80s (think: day to night 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.

He-Man Toy Month: Trap-Jaw

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).  Trap-jaw property  Charlie courtesy

He-Man Toy Month: Teela

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
