    Choices for the characters who 'know' the secret?

    I was always befuddled as to why Madame Razz in She-Ra, and Orko in MOTU were entrusted with the secret of She-Ra and He-Man's true identities when both are proved to be ditzy and unreliable throughout the series? Why can Kowl know and Bow not? Why can Orko know and Teela not?

    Orko and Madame Razz were ditzy and unreliable to hide their true missions I would think. Kowl knows probably in the same way Loo-Kee knows, he is small and can easily hide and be all over the place and see a lot of stuff. Bow seems to be more blinded by his interest in Adora and She-Ra...and with Teela, it could compromise her duties if she knew. Just my thoughts.....

    THough it does seem odd that when He-Man and/or She-Ra is around Adam and/or Adora are not. One would think people would start to become curious about that and the excuses like "Oh I just fell asleep under the tree" all the while a major battle is taking place.

    Surely Teela is capable of keeping a secret??

    Well, I don't think you can apply logic to these choices. The producers clearly wanted to give the leads funny sidekicks with attributes children could relate to. Otherwise, there's no good reason to tell Orko this information because, at least in the Filmation show, he did seem too immature to handle such an important secret.

    Razz, on the other hand is, I feel the Man-At-Arms to Adora - the adult best able to help her through her mission. Kowl likely stumbled upon the secret and Light Hope just knows everything...

    But I really wouldn't say Kowl is as childish as Orko, by a LONG shot!

    Any guy with a heart on his chest plate, can NOT be trusted with any secret.
    ..same for girls with brass arm bands.

    Although I think there is no reason at all for there to be secrets, no reason at all.

    I would think that Eternia has gone through enough problematic times that secret keeping would be the most unexceptable and unlawful thing for anyone to do.
    ..Skeletor doesnt keep his interest in ruling the planet a secret..why would He-Man and She-Ra?

    I guess the idea, similar to Superman, is that if evil people know who he-man is, they'll target those he loves
