Interesting interview Jukka. Really informative. I didn't know they were working with a small production team. I kinda wish we could have got a look at Shokoti for MYP.
More Interviews with people behind the 2002 cartoon!
- Voice Actor for Mekaneck & Orko - Gabe Khouth
- Voice Director and Actor for King Randor - Michael Donovan
- Animation Director - Gary Hartle
This time Jukka interviewed Lynell Forestall, the character designer for Mike Young Productions He-Man!
Read the interview in the link below:
I'm interested in knowing more about this proposed Shokoti episode, and even more so Gary Hartle's She-Ra story arc. We've been told many different things over the years about any plans to bring her into the 200X continuity, ranging from 'she was always part of the plan' to 'Nothing was ever planned for her.' Even if this is some shot down story idea, I'd like to hear more about it.
In the name of the Lloyd!
Very cool Jukka, thank you for sharing. I love reading these behind the scenes sort of thing.
Thanks Jukka, that was a fun read!

Jafaristew...the guy that coined the term "200X."
Fans should ask about that from Lynell at Power-Con
Great interview! As always thanks for doing the work Jukka! You rock.
I recall Larry-D once (in Person at SDCC years ago) saying something about an "idea" for a Shokoti episode and it got turned down because she wasn't an "action Figure Character". Don't ask me what the "idea" was because when I asked him what it was he said "I don't get paid for Ideas, I get paid for scripts" He is a funny guy that Larry D I wonder if Forestall had his idea independently, or they collaborated on the pitch together?
I would love to shake his hand one day for his Veena and faceless One designs.
I get his point about wanting to do other stuff in his free time, but I wonder if he would mind a fanboy digging through his garage and dusting off some of these lost gems though? God forbid they one day get lost in fire or earthquake!
His Black Lightning's daughters DC Nation Shorts are some of my favorites. I think they did two or three of them right? I wonder if the other character he was talking about was Vibe?

'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).
