Another Great Cartoon

6 He-man and the Masters of the Universe He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is an American animated television series produced by Filmation based on Mattel's toy line Masters of the Universe.

Probably the first popular cartoon to be based off a toy. But hey, This used to be my dad's favorite cartoon during the 80s. but was gone with star wars, transformers, and other action stuff in the 90s where there is silly cartoons featuring animals who are just too goofy and they always get unlucky. (exam. Animaniacs, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko) - roblox connor4808

The Filmation series was the first and, to date, still the best. The fandom (or what's left of it, anyway) SUCKS, though! You'd expect that level of sheer character hate from 15-16-year-olds, not 45-46-year-olds. FFS, people, GROW UP.

It's the first T.V. show based off a toy. I had to take a daily dose of it.

This show has the power.
