She-Ra script: "Return of the Sea Hawk" #5

For your entertainment I present to you the script for the season one She-Ra episode "Return of the Sea Hawk" written by Michael Chase Walker and Larry DiTillio. This episode would mark the return of the Sea Hawk, whilst revealing if it was Adora or She-Ra as to whom he would rather spend quality time with. Here are pages twenty-four to twenty-nine of the script.

The ground seems to moan...

Here is an absolutely breathtaking panel by Bruce Timm from the Masters of the Universe minicomic "The Ultimate Battleground!" In this panel we see Skeletor and King Hiss atop Snake Mountain combining their powers to unleash the Three Towers, with which they believe they can use to overthrow Eternia. Bruce Timm's artwork is, as always, incredibly striking. But of particular note are the extraordinary array of atmospheric colors by Charles Simpson that complement Timm's lines perfectly. As I have stressed before, my one small gripe with this minicomic, as is evidenced by this illustration, is the ridiculously close proximity of Castle Grayskull to Snake Mountain!

Panini sticker album art #35

When I was a kid, one of my most prized possessions was the Masters of the Universe sticker album by Panini. I still remember the day my mother purchased the album for me. Aside from the fun of collecting the stickers themselves I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Filmation-accurate illustrations that could be found on each and every page. I thought it would be a good idea to showcase those illustrations on this very Blog!

"Riddle of the Comet"

As He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was developed into a series, the staff writers at Filmation came up with a wealth of proposed story premises. Numerous episodes were never developed beyond the early stages. Showcased below is one of those abandoned episodes, alongside a title card that I have created to show what might have been. Please note that in some of these synopses Orko is still referred to as Gorpo, Evil-Lyn as Desira, and the Evil Warriors as the Masters of the Universe. The Sorceress does not appear to have been fully developed at this point either; with many references instead to the Spirit of Grayskull. Also, Stratos is a villain; much like he was in the early Mattel material. All of the original spellings (Tee-La, Beastman, etc.) are also retained for authenticity.

The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe features many more abandoned episodes!

"Riddle of the Comet"
When a comet crashes into the planet, He-Man loses his strength. Meanwhile, Beastman's legions storm into the kingdom, and without He-Man's defensive power, Castle Grayskull is sure to fall. Only by unraveling the riddle of the comet...and its strange properties...can He-Man recover his strength and save Grayskull.


* Legally I should say that Larry DiTillio did NOT write this episode. This is merely an example of how the episode title card might have looked.
