    She Ra Cartoon series.

    Hi Im new her on the page and in the forum.

    I have the He Man DVD box and was thinking about buy the She Ra DVD box also, as I never have seen the She Ra Cartoons.
    Will I as a He Man fan be disappointed when I see the She Ra Cartoons, or is they at the "same level" as the He Man cartoons ?

    Is some of the "People" from the He Man cartoons also in the She Ra cartoons, or is it all new ?
    Is He Man with in the She Ra carttons ?

    I hope I hear from you :-)

    Thanks :-)

    Best Regards
    Tommas

    hi welcome to heman.org, to answer your questions
    some people like shera more then heman, some people lke heman more then shera it depends how you like the stories but for me shera is a great series.
    you will see some of the heman show charachters appear in the series from time to time but for the most part its mostly shera charachters

    As a He-Man fan for many years, I was actually impressed with the She-Ra cartoon series. As a child, I avoided it because it was a "girl's show". My brother's GF convinced me to get the She-Ra series a couple of months ago, after I bought the He-Man series, and I mostly got it for her. To be honest, I had low expectations and imagined that it would be very girlie.

    The She-Ra cartoon turned out to be more action-packed than I thought. There's a lot more violence involved! While He-Man never directly hurts anyone, She-Ra and company destroy and "kill" Horde Troopers left and right. Even Hordak murders his own troopers when he gets mad. Also, I felt that the oppressed world of Etheria touched on a lot more mature themes than He-Man ever did. Things like villagers being taxed to death, families separated by the Horde, troopers threatening to take little girls away and turning them into Hordes-women (What does that even mean?!), people being imprisoned, and a desperate rebellion fighting tanks and armored soldiers with only pitchforks and axes just felt a lot more "real" than most of He-Man's adventure quests.

    As for guest appearances, there are plenty of them throughout the series. The beginning of the story already starts at Eternia with the Sorceress sending Adam and Cringer on a quest to find Adora. Other He-Man characters that appear are Skeletor, Man-at-Arms, Orko, Modulok, Snout Spout, Mortork, Dre-Elle, King Randor, and Queen Marlena. A couple of scenes even take place in Eternia where you catch a glimpse of the Royal Palace, Castle Grayskull, or Snake Mountain.

    The She-Ra cartoon is definitely a good companion piece to the He-Man series because it's a nice continuation of the Filmation style. It looks just like the He-Man cartoon with some awesome new backgrounds and music! Hordak is just as good of a main villain as Skeletor, IMO. I'll admit, the exaggerated voices were kinda annoying at first but after I got used to them, I can't imagine characters like Catra, Mantenna, or Madame Razz without their signature voices.

    Anyway, I recommend picking up the She-Ra series, you won't be disappointed!

    I also just recently purchased the entire She-Ra series on DVD and am watching it for the first time since childhood. I've been pretty impressed with it. He-Man seems to pop up every few episodes (complete with his theme music) so it's not only a spin-off but a continuation of the He-Man series at the same time. Plus, you'll get to see Masters characters that never made it onto the original series like Snout Spout and the Comet Warriors (or the entire Horde for that matter).

    If your DVD player can play Region 2 DVDs, a complete She-Ra series DVD boxset can be purchased on Amazon.de, though you may find it cheaper on eBay!

    She-ra was superior to He-man in many ways

    She-ra had more powers, better sword and a sidekick that could fly.

    Also, the animation and music were better on She-ra than on the He-man series.

    She-ra was designed to be outdo He-man.

    Me and my daughter saw the "Flowers for Hordak" today for the first time :-)
    It was very fun to see Hordak many fun faces and how he's so tired of Perfuma. A very fun and great chapter of She ra cartoon :-)
