What Lies Beneath?

In the worlds of He-Man and She-Ra, some things are supposed to remain unseen.

In the worlds of He-Man and She-Ra, some things are supposed to remain unseen. Occasionally a script or director would determine that a scene should reveal these hidden to the eyes of the viewer. Man-At-Arms, Evil-Lyn, Madame Razz, She-Ra are just some of the characters that have something in common; part of their head is covered. This section aims to reveal all!

PP62 - "Magicats"

Whilst relaxing in her new kingdom and examining the powers of her mask, Catra decides it's time to show the viewers her mass of blue hair. Plus this is a good opportunity to check out her well-developed cheekbones!

MU59 - "The Witch and The Warrior"

Possibly one of the finest hair-revealing moments in the entire He-Man and She-Ra series is this one. Evil-Lyn, complaining about the heat in the desert, just takes off her helmet, and Teela doesn't even flinch. What does surprise us all is that she has white hair, and very short hair at that.

Madame Razz
PP77 - "The Caregiver"

Madame Razz's anger causes her hat to get stuck, and as Broom helps remove it we see her face. Similar to the Orko scene in "Betrayal of Stratos," the director decides to include one frame where we can see Madame Razz's full head of hair, and the upper part of her face.

MU60 - "The Return of Granamyr"

Man-At-Arms is awoken by a giant demon of the night, which actually gives us the opportunity to look at his hairstyle. We can see that he follows the common tradition among Eternia warriors; having his ears completely covered by his hair.

Marlena, Queen
MU6 - "Teela's Quest"

Queen Marlena cannot wear her tiara all of the time, especially when she's looking into her past via Man-At-Arms' memory projector.

MU78 - "Betrayal of Stratos"

Whilst being pursued by a giant snake in, Orko climbs up a tree, and falls off, revealing his face. Although his head is black and his ears are blue, this is probably not the way Orko actually looks. The animator definitely went for the look of the toy here, because when removing Orko's hat this is what we see, a black head with two blue ears. This animation trick would later be used in "The Caregiver," revealing Madame Razz's face for one frame.

Randor, King
MU2 - "The Shaping Staff"

In his own dungeon, and prisoner of Evil-Lyn and Beast Man, King Randor appears to have lost his crown. In the next few seconds he is transformed into a goat, so it's probably a good thing he wasn't wearing it in this scene. We can see where Prince Adam got the idea for his long hairstyle; it appears that his father started the trend.

PP67 - "Return Of The General"

To fool some Horde Troopers She-Ra removes her tiara. What is surprising to the viewer is that her hair is exactly the same as Adora's, proving that like He-Man, even their hairstyle doesn't change during the transformation. Without the headpiece, she looks exactly like Adora in a different costume. At least with He-Man, his skin and hair color change to fool people. The only difference between Adora and She-Ra is that She-Ra has longer hair, but somehow I doubt that would fool many people.

Teela, Man-at-Arms and Queen Marlena
MU46 - "Eternal Darkness"

In bed and waking up from Darkdream-induced nightmares, Teela, Man-at-Arms and Queen Marlena can be seen bareheaded (Randor prefers a sleeping cap).

MU59 - "The Witch and The Warrior"

After successfully fooling Kothos' Orc warriors into thinking she has perished, Teela makes sure that the next important part of her mission is accomplished; reclaim her tiara.

Teela and Evil-Lyn
MU59 - "The Witch and The Warrior"

Teela and Evil-Lyn remove their respective headwear to fool Kothos' Orcs into thinking that a Sand Devil has killed them. Fortunately, a minute later both of them regain their headwear and therefore cause no disruption in terms of continuity throughout the series.
