    Is MYP the best of the 80s cartoon revamps?

    Besides TMNT, Transfomers Prime, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic or Thundercats.

    With Transformers it's hard to say which is the equivalent "revamp" for 80s property.
    If we go by time-frame, wouldn't the example be Transformers Armada? (coming roughly same time as TMNT-revamp and MOTU-revamp)

    I really did enjoy MYP a lot and was sad that it got axed just when it was starting to get really good. Did like the 2K3 Turtles since they were the most faithful to the original Mirage comics. I am currently enjoying Thundercats. The Transformers Unicron trilogy were kind of meh but Animated and Prime are really good. Never liked My Little Pony and to be honest, the 80s definitely had better animation and I'm not even going to get started on Care Bears.

    Yes, the MYP cartoon is easily the best 80s revamp in my opinion. It's the only MOTU cartoon you can watch seriously, and it has some of the best story and pacing of any cartoon during that time. While other cartoons are decent, Thundercats and TF Prime in particular, the MYP cartoon seemed to perfectly blend the best elements of classic MOTU with modern ideas. I think a lot of other revamps fail at this. Could it have been better? Yes. There were flaws, and it didn't reach it's full potential, but at least it didn't become something completely different.

    By far. It saddens me daily that we will never get to see where the story was going. Now im going to curl up in a ball and cry.

    I agree, I loved the 2002 series. They managed to take elements of the classic MOTU and give it a more modern edge. I didnt like TF Animated, and TF Prime is okay but I would like to see a return to more G1 inspired characters. So far I have been really dissapointed by the new Thundercats. I had my fingers crossed that when the MOTU Classics line started up, that we would be getting a new cartoon series to go with it.

    There is no such thing as MVP.

    MYP means Mike Young Productions (animation studio that handled MOTU cartoon)
    and
    MVC means MVCreations (comic studio that handled MOTU comicbook)

    MVP means Most Valuable Player...and there is a strong case to be made that MYP was precisely that.

    I agree the MYP He-Man cartoon was the best. The story lines were great by involving lesser known characters, however, Mattel should not have pushed the Snake Men in so many of the episodes. Having the Snake Men included in the intro ruined it for me. I preferred to see more of the Evil Horde.

    I think they were using the snake men arch to add depth to the Horde storyline and the show was just canceled too soon. I for one really liked the Snake men story line because they never had filmation treatment whereas the Horde did.

    The new Turtles toon from the last decade was excellent and more faithful to the comics

    Gotta go with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic here, I'm afraid.

    I've never seen Thundercats and I haven't seen much of GI Joe, so I can't speak for them.

    I would put He-Man above TMNT in all areas but one though: the finale. I really really loved Turtles Forever. Too bad TMNT ran like three times as long as HM&tMOTU. I like the characters and world of Eternia more.

    Okay, not by much at all, but still.

    I've just rewatched the entire series, and I think it's fantastic. It is definately one of the best updates. Thundercats has been great, but a little bit souless, and the Mumm-Ra redesign with the tiny head was a bit lame. G.I.Joe Resolute was epic, but Hasbro kinda pushed it under the carpet due to its' adult tone, and only made a few figures from it. Transformers Animated was cool, but didn't get me all fired up to buy toys. Apart from the Dinobots, because they rock.
    I think we were really lucky to get such an ace series, with some real depth and some kickin' moments. And it was great to see Skeletor being a genuine threat to Eternia.

    I loved the Snake Men. They added so much depth to the cartoon, and like He-Dad said,

    The Horde got a whole series dedicated to them, and for Snake Men lovers we kinda got left out. I'm so glad they DID include them in the MYP cartoon, and we finally got to see the Snake Men in full glory. King Hssss was my favorite. Snake Face was soooo awesome as well.

    It seems like a lot of Snake Men now that the series is cancelled, but I believe they wanted to do more with the cartoon and keep it going so who knows where it would've ended up. I love how the cartoon really developed the characters and created more of a humanized story rather than just a toy commercial.

    I'd put it second behind the Thundercats revamp.

    Yeah, I really, really love the Thundercats.

    MYP is pretty good, but I have stopped watching it since getting the modern Thundercats on DVD. I'm sure I'll watch it again, eventually.
