A BLAST FROM THE PAST

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Animated television series. The mid-eighties to early nineties was quite the time to be alive for young boys. There were plenty of iconic cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe and Transformers feeding our need for action. Before all of those iconic shows, though, there was one that kicked off the craze and remained popular even 30 years later. Of course, we’re talking about the one and only He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. To this day, anyone who was a kid in the early 80s will tell you how they look back at He-Man with fondness.
