She-Ra: Princess of Power
was a short-lived Filmation cartoon series that was
spin-off of He-Man and aired in 1985. One of the main
reasons this series was short-lived was probably due to
the fact that most girls couldn't care less about it.
Like the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon
series, Mattel created an entire line of toys around the
show. She-Ra made her debut in a full length animated
movie called He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the
of the show will remember that She-Ra was the lost twin
sister of He-Man (her name was Adora). She had been
kidnapped years before by the evil Hordak, but had risen
up as the leader of a group of freedom fighters called
the Great Rebellion (after being rescued by He-Man).
The groupís goal was to overthrow the tyrannical Hordak
and his Evil Horde army to once again free their world
of Etheria. To give you doubters out there an idea of
how powerful Hordak was, Skeletor worked for him. With
the Sword of Protection at her side, she was able
transform into the mighty She-Ra, and even He-Man would
make a guest appearance from time to time.
