    Help with animation cels

    Hello everyone,
    I recently bought my first animation cell of He-Man. I'm trying to figure out which episode it may have been from. It is a picture from behind holding his sword. There is writting on the bottom that says ' mo 86 m4 86 87 2 '. How can i figure out where this was used?
    thank you

    Hmm, can you show us a picture of the frame and one of the numbers? I will have to throw out a guess of being the episode, The Rainbow Warrior.

    It's from the episode "A Trip To Morainia." The first number (86) is always the episode code/number. Second is scene code (roughly where in the episode it falls.) Last is number of this exact cel in the sequence of animating this character in this scene. This is second cel of He-man about to carve a circle in a wall of ice. If you have the DVD (BCI) you can find it by pausing at 5:54 mark of the episode.

    It's MU 86 (Masters of the Universe) - like kevin said. The number designated for the episode.

    I was curious what cel would have m4 tag, but it turns out to be just the MU mark.

    No problem. Glad I could help!

    Be careful though... you've likely caught the bug now! Collecting these things (AND finding them within the episodes) can become quite addicting! Enjoy!
