Ruxtown villagers on Etheria.

Here is an interesting image from the season one She-Ra episode "Book Burning". In this scene we see the villagers ordered to step back by the Horde Troopers. Upon careful inspection you will notice that the crowd is actually comprised of numerous character models from the infamous season two He-Man episode "Monster on the Mountain". It is interesting to see them colored differently and placed in a throwaway crowd shot.

Very true! Have to admit you have quite a memory :)

Emma, from the episode mentioned, is definitely a standout, especially with the pink shawl. :) Doesn't that character reappear in "Day of the Flowers?" I remember her exclaiming, in over-the-top fashion, "The Monstroids! Oh no!" Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Based on that crowd, one thing that Eternia and Etheria have in common is the dire need for good hair stylists!

It amazing how the artist reuse characters from show to another. But Kevin might be right about Emma showing up in another episode of She-ra.

I can dig the floppy hats. Not so much the headbands, though I suppose they were fashionable at the time. But that guy with the upsidedown flower pot on his head, what was he thinking?

I can see why maybe they would use the same character model,just color the clothes differently. i would think it would be easier and quicker to do it this way.

I actually quite like "Monster on the Mountain" - however, it's fair to say that "Book Burning" is a much stronger episode! ;)

Something that is quite amazing is how the worlds of Eternia and Etheria, despite supposedly being unconnected, have so much in common - not just their names, but also their humanoid population! :)

Perhaps they're immagrants from Eternia and the Horde Troopers are the local immigration service. :D

Instead of deporting them though, they'll probably just enslave them. :D
