    Skeletor's Revenge and The Greatest Adventures of All

    I'm confused here...

    Which 3 episodes of season 1 of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe make up The Greatest Adventures of All?

    Which 3 episodes of season 2 of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe make up Skeletor's Revenge?

    Why exactly was this done this way?

    Were they actually released on VHS this way, ever? Were the episodes fused togther?

    Was this like how the first 5 episodes of She-Ra were from Secret of the Sword?

    They were VHS releases of episode-collections.

    To make them more entertaining, Filmation went that extra step to produce new animation to have a bridge between the episodes.

    The Greatest Adventures of All
    showcased the Sorceress narrating between episodes

    Episodes are from season 1
    "Diamond Ray of Disappearance"
    "Teela's Quest"
    "Colossor Awakes"

    Skeletor's Revenge
    Had Skeletor talking to Evil-Lyn and Beastman about new characters showing up to help He-Man, and what new villains he would recruit. (this one has lot of great expressionistic animation with Skeletor)

    Episodes were from season 2
    "The Day of Machines"
    "The Cat and the Spider"
    "Trouble in Trolla"

    Wow, I just recalled watching these once! I can't find a picture of the cover of Skeletor's Revenge.

    Do you think these will ever be released on DVD?

    Yes, sort of. PM me and I can hook you up in that department. Jukka's screen grabs I believe are from my DVD transfer.

    Oh, man. I would loved to see these. I don't remember if I ever saw them. However, if these were aired during the regular run of episodes then I probably did and just don't remember. I'm really surprised they were never released on dvd.

    They weren't released on DVD because that extra footage wasn't digitized or saved by Hallmark when they transferred the library. And ER wouldn't let us use any footage that they didn't possess from the purchase of the library.

    I have these on ancient VHS.

    The episodes from "The Greatest Adventures of All" were of the first three broadcast episodes.

    Also to note is that a couple of animation mistakes were corrected for these releases.

    i have both on tape and i will keep those and the other official releases on tape. the greatest adventures were put to defenitly introduce the heroes and villains for the series and skeletors revenge was for introduction into the second season and of course as stated both had lots of great animation that wasnt seen of course in the series

    I'm looking for Skeletor's Revenge as well.

    My collection of (original) He-Man in MP4 is almost complete. I have Season 01 & 02

    I also have:

    -He-Man and She-Ra - A Christmas Special
    -The Secret of the Sword

    I'm missing Skeletor's Revenge though! I found Secret of the Sword on Youtube but don't see Skeletor's Revenge anywhere.

    I definitely don't want it on VHS LoL. Please let me know if a digital version exists yet.
