#0189 - Ebony-skinned Huntara!

There are not that many guest characters that made as big an impact in the She-Ra series as the wonderful Huntara. After appearing in the season one episode "Huntara", the rest of the series literally cried out for her to make another appearance. Interestingly her model sheet describes her as a black character, which is obvious when looking at the character design. When I was young I used to believe that her design was based on eighties icon Grace Jones; sure enough Bob Forward's script describes her as Grace Jones! The interesting thing we have to question is why they felt the need to alter the character's skin tone?
