    Fresh Off the Boat TV show "Breaking Chains" Season 3 Episode 2 MOTU blunder

    This sitcom takes place in the 90's and supposedly this was left on the kitchen counter...




    Shouldn't have been New Adventures He-Man instead....
    Top MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither, Tuvar & Baddrah 2-pack

    I saw that! I cried "Foul!" right to the TV. [^D

    - - - Updated - - -

    ...the show is set in 1997 at this point. I would have to wonder why ANY He-Man figure would be referenced during this period.

    It's not like it's "The Goldbergs", set in a nebulous (but very Castle Grayskull friendly) version of the '80s. [^)

    The Goldbergs actually called once asking for vintage toys to use on set. But alas, I only had classics samples around.

    At least it wasn't like when classics Skeletor wound up in a deep frier in 30 Rock.

    There is a shot in Stranger Things where HMATMOU comes on while
    Flipping channels. Except: the scene took place at 9:00 am and HM aired in the afternoons. Arg

    I think it depended on what syndicated station was playing it, and in what year.

    There's also an episode of It's Always Sunny where Dennis and Dee destroy Avatars of Charlie and Mac in a game they were playing. At the end of the episode you can see one of them is a destroyed burned MOTUC He-man figure.

    Yeah, I actually proposed to Mattel games that they make that game and include a burned up MOTUC he man and Barbie.

    I also wanted to make a green man action figure. Cheap, existing parts, no deco.

    Both ideas were rejected pretty fast.

    Can't win em all

    Oh man, that would have been epic.

    Well, in Stranger Things, they have a 90s POTF2 Millennium Falcon toy instead of the 70s one. So I guess MOTU isn't alone!

    Wow, that's a cool story. I had read an online interview several years ago where Adam Goldberg (show creator and show namesake) had briefly mentioned the MOTUC line... He really liked the figures, but if I recall correctly, I think he said his wife didn't want him "going down that rabbit hole." Poor guy. Hope he had a chance to convince her otherwise since then.

    Yeup, I love to see when my fellow MOTU fans have their priorities in order. Lucky for my wife that she's onboard with me collecting MOTU otherwise I'd show her to the door.
