    I feel like He-man was huge when i was a kid, one of my most cherished toys i had was a he-man action figure with an accompanying skeletor figure. haha!

    The thing is that I have almost never met anyone else who has heard of he-man (I have only met one other person, other then my brother who watched the show with me.)

    The only other time people have been exposed to he-man is during the short mention during the second ghostbusters movie. "Who do you call? He-man!!"

    What is this? Was I part of some parallel universe where he-man was the MAN!? haha What I am trying to say is, give me a reply if you loved he-man too. NICE!!

    For those who want to know more:

    By the power, of GREEEYYYSKULLL!!!!

    He-man, She-ra, Battle Cat, thundercats, voltron, transformers, and followed by the Gummi Bears and the Smurfs.

    God how I miss the good cartoons in the morning, now all we get here is anime and anime is just not early morning cartoon material. Sorry folks, but it's just not. (except for voltron)....and transformers. The old transformers though, when the the action figures were made out of metal.

    I had a metal Optimus Prime as a child, it was in pristine condition when my mother sold it at a garage sale many years ago for a few dollars. When I found out it was worth a mint I was ropable!!

    I remember I had a He-man book when I was 4 or 5. In kindergarten we had a reading/nap time and I took the book everyday to read... over and over. I never read any other book, I never napped either. One day a fellow classmate asked if she could see it. I gave it to her, thinking she would give it back to me. But she didn't. She kept it for the whole nap time, and all I could do was crawl into the futon and cry. I never let another soul touch that book ever again.

    Yeah...

    Now I don't know where that book went.

    You're certainly not the only one who remembers He-man. I'm about 30, and when I was young I had a pretty complete set of action figures and such. I even had a Castle Grayskull that I was pretty proud of. It had all kinds of trapdoors and such, very sweet.

    Man, I miss that era of cartoons. Great stuff.

    Speaking of, does anyone remember a cartoon from that era called Silverhawks (iirc)? It used to be on right after Thundercats in my local area. Ring any bells?

    Never liked the Smurfs or Gummi Bears though, although the latter had one of the catchiest theme-songs ever.

    Classic Pink Panther/Ant and Aardvark/Inspector cartoons remain the undisputed cartoon champion(s) in my book.

    Anyone remember the film "Masters of the Universe" with Dolph Lundgren and Courtenay Cox. That was great too! :D

    Yeah, He-man forever!:D

    I had ca 20 figures back in the 80ies, He-man and Captain Future (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Future) were my heroes as a child.

    Recently I found the He-man figures in a box on the attic. I took them with me and the box is now stored safe in a cabinet in my work room. Good thing my Father did not throw them away. :)

    There were times when money was tight when I was growing up, and I remember going to Mr. Amazing (a manufacturer's closeout kinda store -- equivalent of an Ocean State Job Lot) to get "juice glasses."

    We walked out with He-Man juice glasses because I absolutely fell in love with them.

    Kicker is, my parents still have them in their cabinets -- though they never use them!

    I loved He-man and Thundercats. Thought I was the only one who ever heard of the Thundercats. My favorite was the Gummi Bears though....(I'm over 40, how scary is that??????????):D

    I see your tansformers and G.I. Joe and raise you a ninja turtles and ghostbusters.

    Oh MAN!! it's on DVD!! I have to get it. HAVE TO!!

    Yeah I totally remember the movie. I just remember thinking to myself when it's a cartoon people don't seem as naked. haha

    Nice to know I'm not alone. It's weird though I'm only 22. I think the show as on 83-85. That makes me two when watched it? :confused: That can't be right. How would remember it?

    I HAVE THE POWER!!! :D

    Of course I remember He-Man! Yes, and Thundercats, although that got old pretty fast. Snarf? Come on.

    Some other favorites - Johnny Quest (one of the few cartoons where people died, at least at the time), Tarzan, and Dungeons and Dragons.

    "BRAAAAVE STAAAAAR.....BRAAAAVE STAAAAR......eyes of a hawk, ears of a wolf...........BRAAAAVESTAAAR.......strength of a bear, speed of a PUUUUMAAAA!!"

    Yeah, I remember and loved all those cartoons.

    And if you don't know anyone who loves He-Man, you're either hanging with a really old, or very young crowd, because nobody in the 23-27 age group could have missed He-Man.

    When the movie came out my mom took me to see it and we were the only people in the theater that day. I'll always remember that.

    Man, I miss those days, those were the cartoons I grew up on, He-Man, Thunder Cats, Gummi Bears, Smurfs, Duck Tales, even Captain Planet lol These days I just don't get the cartoons and all those crazy Pokemons and stuff, my little cousin is into that, sometimes I watch with him but quite frankly I think it all stinks. Maybe it's a generation thing.

    Heck I am 27 and sometimes I still turn on the Disney Channel to watch few good oldies.

    I didn't realize that 28 now qualified as "really old"! :p

    I'm almost 37, and I've got fond memories of He-Man and the rest... ;)

    I'm glad you posted that. Maybe we should get our pipes and slippers out and suck on Werther's Originals by the fire.

    33 years old and I'm written off by ageism already. The youth of today have no respect.

    I love this kind of merchandise stuff. I found a really retro he-man bag in a charity shop a while ago, still in its wrapping. I think I might flog it on eBay though, cause I never use it.

    Whatever. The Thundercats and Conan the Barbarian would totally whip He-man's ass.
