Description:

The amusing battle scene from "The Return of Granamyr" in storyboard form is shown here.

Here we present a page from Robert Lamb's storyboard of "The Return of Granamyr." In this episode He-Man and Man-At-Arms just cannot get a decent night's sleep. When the bad guy of the episode Zim sends Braylok demon of the night to attack He-Man and Man-At-Arms, we are treated to a very comical scene that you just don't expect to see with a demon.

Demons tend to be very quick, very smart and very powerful. Unfortunately, even though not played for comic relief, Braylok comes across as a bit laughable. During the battle, he decides to leap at He-Man and Man-At-Arms. What makes this action scene so comical is that the two warriors stand in front of a very long staircase, and Braylok meets the stairs. In the final animated version He-Man's line comes across as slightly out of character. Once Braylok has tumbled down the staircase He-Man yells, "Let's get him!"

Robert Lamb explains, "It was frustrating to have to choreograph as non-violently as possible. (Will I ever live down the infamous "Sword to blanket?") Scripts and boards would be kicked back if perceived as too violent. So there was a lot of tumbling and ducking and indirect action."

 

You thought Granamyr looked a little silly with a helmet?

Here we present a few images from Robert Lamb's storyboard of "The Return of Granamyr." You will notice that Granamyr looks slightly different than the final animated version. He states: "I thought the helmet was dorky and my Granamyr better." Granamyr has already had his final design confirmed in "The Dragon's Gift," but Robert continued to draw his original vision: "This was my stubborn refusal to embrace the final model."

Robert Lamb actually put more detail than usual into these pictures. Because they were drawn on a larger panel scale, he was able to shrink them down later to match up with the usual panel size. He used to get in trouble for this: "It would slow me down and risk blowing my deadline. But sometimes I just wanted to make it look better."
