    The popular band "Scouting for Girls" are big He-Man and She-Ra fans. They have a song with references called "Mountains of Navaho", and even mention He-Man and She-Ra in some of their interviews...such as this one... (Start at about 3:45)



    I dunno if helps, but Christina Aguilera is a fan of She-Ra. Her mom mentions in E! True Hollywood Story that she used to run around pretending that she was She-Ra as a kid.

    Oh and Ludacris is a fan of MotU.

    'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).

    I remember when Star Wars Episode 2 was coming out.
    Hayden Christensen, in one interview, admitted to being more of a He-Man fan as a kid than a Star Wars fan.

    I have no idea where to find that clip... Youtube?

    I remember Hayden Christensen mentioning that he was more into He-man then Star wars on Jay Leno to which Jay Leno asked him if he rememered what He-man said and Hayden got up and said"By the power of Grayskull"I also remember Ann Hathaway mentioning being a big He-man and She-ra fan on Regis and Kelly while promoting Princess Diaries 2 and Kelly asked her if she wanted to be a princess growing up to which Ann replied that she wanted to be She-ra but neither Regis or Kelly seemed to know who she was referring to

    In My Name is Earl season 2, Randy askes Earl about who would win in a fight, He-man or the Muppets! This was one of their many bed time scenes.

    Spike called Dawn "little She-Ra" in Buffy a few times.

    In Dallas, John Ross is seen palying with Stridor a few times.

    Isn't Ashton Kutcher a big fan? And didn't shout by the power of greyskull on some talk show like Jay Leno or something?

    MotU in 80's films

    Last night I was watching "The Princess Bride" with some friends and I got really excited to notice that behind the boys bed were a Grizzlor and He-man figure. I think there may have even been a Leech figure.

    So I got wondering. What films contain some sort of reference to or actual product of Masters of the Universe.

    I know in one of the Friday the 13th films a young boy is wearing a pyjama top with Mekanek on it.

    So who else has gotten a bit excited at seeing some classic MotU stuff in an 80's film? Or am I the only one?

    My boyfriend was watching The Night They Saved Christmas (from 1984) about a half-hour ago, when all of a sudden he started yelling for me to come to the TV. He thinks he caught something MotU-related in the bedroom of one of the boys. -- A pillow. By the time I got there, I only saw the edge of it, but I think this might be it.

    Stephen Colbert is a MOTU fan (He once opened his show by shouting, "By the Power of Grayskull, this is The Colbert Report!")

    There is an episode of St. Elsewhere in which one of the doctor's sons has MOTU pajamas on. He makes a comment to his mother, who then says something like "Ok He-Man, time for bed" or something.
    Uncle Montork has returned from Trolla!

    I was watching Pimp My Ride on Mtv ( I know... But there was nothing else on...) And while Xibit is looking over this girl's car, an ice cream man pulls up. The girl and Xibit both buy ice cream, and he asked to buy "one of those cosmic swords" And after he opens it, he holds it over his head and says "By the power of Grayskull...laughs...I have the POWER!!!" He laughed again, and then it moved on to the next shot. Semi cool.

    I did multiple searches to see if this one had been mentioned before, and it hasn't.

    In Demons 2, from 1986, Snake Mountain and Fisto are shown right when you start 'Chapter 9.' It comes right after the scene where the one chick crashes the car in the parking garage. Snake Mountain is cast is shadows, so I can't see all the details 100%, but since Fisto is definitely there, I'm pretty sure it is Snake Mountain. Also, in 'Chapter 5' I think a little piece of it can be seen behind the young boy.

    Anybody remember Walk Like A Man? Before Howie Mandel did Deal or No Deal, he made movies in the 80's. And in Walk Like A Man, he was lost as a child, and raised be wolves. He's recovered as an adult, and he has to be "trained" to be a normal human being.

    Well, in one scene, he gets lost at a mall, and wonders into a toy store. The have a huge display for the Slime Pit's slime on the counter by the cashier. He pops one open, dips his fingers in and smells it. It makes him sneeze, and a lady behind him turns and says God Bless You, he turns around, and his hand is covered in the green slime. The lady makes an aweful face, gags, and runs away.

    Always loved this movie as a kid. If you ever see it come up, you should check it out. And that scene was great. Genuinely funny!!

    The infamous 1984 horror flick "Silent Night Deadly Night" had some product placement in the toy store such as a He-Man brand kite and a castle greyskull in the background of the toy store where the villain works.

    He-Man appears on one of the new Garbage Pail Kids cards (series 7). I didn't even know they still made these.

    If you watch the 1983 nuclear holocaust film Testament starring William Devane and Jane Alexander you'll notice that the youngest kid has a batch of MOTU figures through out the film, ranging from Skeletor, to He-Man, to him burying a Battle Cat in a cemetary. :P

    He-Man References in Other Media

    I saw a thread about this same subject on this message board once I couldn't find it now so I'll jst post it here.

    In the 1983 film "Testament" the youngest character Scotty (played by the same actor who played the child in "Witness") plays with several Masters Of The Univer action figures, among them He-Man and Man-At-Arms.
