Movie Skeletor all the way! He was so delicously evil in the movie. Why was it in the 80's the bad guys were pathetic in the regular show but kicked major butt when movie time came around?
Filmation all the way, but they are all pretty good.
It would have to be either Filmation or Movie for me. Filmation for nostalgia as much as anything, but before everything had descended into slapstick in the second season, some of the early episodes actually show Skeletor as a force to be reckoned with.
The movie version is actually really cool, a real menace. Even many movie-haters seem to often cite Skeletor as one of the things that actually did work with the movie.
DiC... well I'm not a NA fan anyway, so many it's not a fair fight, but that version of Skeletor just seemed wrong on so many levels.
The MYP version had his moments, but just seemed too cold (not cold as in evil, more as in cold hard to enjoy watching).
For me the "best" Skeletor hasn't been on-screen, but was the cackling "demon from another dimension" of the early mini-comics.
Word! Mini comic Skeletor or Skeletor from the original package paintings.

The Filmation version was just too comical. He was supposed to be Overlord of Evil but he never really accomplished anything. He always lost and it was like the heroes never really feared him. The MYP Skeletor corrected a lot of those mistakes yet again he still wasn't "evil" enough for my tastes.
