Is that cartoon still going on or was it canceled? I only ask because I saw these cool statues by NECA yesterday that included Hordak, who was mostly known as a She-Ra villain. I remember one episode of the newer cartoon that showed Hordak for a brief period, but thats about it.

I believe the new cartoon was cancelled, which is a shame (I thought it was good, whatI saw of it), though I didn't really help keep it on myself since I stopped watching it after the first season, except catching episodes every now and then. I loved Masters of the Universe when I was a kid, so I was excited by the series at first, but I just didn't keep up with it. I bought some of the new figures (He-man, Skeletor, Man-at-arms, and Teela) and I really wanted Evilyn but I could never find her, and there were others I couldn't find, there were too many different types of He-man and Skeletor. I also wanted that convention exclusive She-ra (I wish she had appeared in the new series, or maybe she did and I missed it). In any case, the new statues are nice, I've seen them around.

Shows got canceled (because no one liked it, it didn't induce enough ADD to keep kids happpy, didn't have a good enough plot for most adults and adults who liked it gave up on it whent hey realized they'd never find a figure of whoever because kids didn't like the show enough to buy the 700 He-Men that come with one Sy-Clone)

... supposedly Hodak was going to be introduced after the snakemen though had it continued.

But the Staction Figures don't nessessarily reflect characters who would have been on the show (such as SnoutSpout and Mantanna)

they are awesome though, I sorta want a Clawful so I can try out the 'add articulation' tricked some people have been doing.

Psssst, if you still want the She-Ra try here:
http://www.toynk.com/catalog/masters_of_the_universe_-_she-ra_comic_con_exclusive_3673678.htm

I'm not sure if she's still in stock, but I ordered one a few months ago as a gift for a friend, $33 ain't a bad price for a $20 exclusive when you consider it sold for $100+ on eBay.

The show was cancelled because of the failed toy line (that is to say, it had no funding).

Hordak did appear quite a few times on the show; once in the first season, and a good third of the episodes in the second season. One episode was a flashback to He-Man's ancestor who fought Hordak back in the day, it also had Leech, Mantenna, and Grizzlor in it, too. Toward the later half of the season Evil Lyn was trying to restore Hordak to Eternia but everyone and their mothers (He-Man, Skeletor, King Hiss, AND Count Marzo) wanted to stop her.

Best episode in the series was the first episode of season two, when He-Man had to take on ALL of the bad guys by himself in the first ten minutes.

Thanks for answering my question guys. Its kind of a shame that it got canceled. They were moving into some interesting plots during the episodes I watched especially with Hordak. That con exclusive She-Ra looks pretty interesting. If they ever release the series on DVD I might get it.

Just to drag this topic on a little longer than it needs to has anyone see that "Best of" for the old He-Man cartoon? I hate that select episode release crap when a series is ready for season by season release on DVD. I would most likely of gotten a season 1 He-man DVD set though.

Well, it took them this long just to give us that much. I think this "best of" stuff is a test market to gauge how many people would be willing to buy old He-Man DVDs. If it does well enough they might just release the full series.

I might pick up the best of but I'm sure it'll get a release of the seasons. Isn't Thundercats season one out or coming out soon?

Its a damn shame it got canceled since I thought the advancements in the story were really well written and just plain interesting. I liked how it gave you backstory but still progressed the current plot. MotU + good writing + good animation = a Happy ShinAT...I just should have known that since I liked the show, it was going to be canceled...just like Brisco County Jr, Mighty Max and Megas XLR...

I hope Brisco will get released on DVD. I love Bruce Campbell.

Go buy "Ghostbusters 1&2" now avalible in a handy 2-disc set.

It comes with TWO episodes of the animated series... yeah that's not a lot but I'm sure someone considers that a way to test the waters to see if people actually want the animated series on DVD based on responce to getting two with the real movies.

Hm, come with the movies huh? That reminds me. I saw a Bill & Ted boxset the other week that came with an episode of the old cartoon. I wonder if that is the new thing now.

Hopefully the cartoon episodes are the ones where their secretary was a gum chewing tart and not the episodes where they decided to tone her down for some silly reason.

After seeing March of the Penguins I realized two things:

1. This is the fourth movie I've seen this year that has Morgan Freeman in it.

2. All movies should feature penguins.

Come to think of it, I've only seen about two or three episodes of the newer series. Anyone know if it's already on DVD or if I can download it from somewhere?

Wait, don't you have access to the spanish Boomerang CN channel on Mexico?? At least here they do broadcast the Real Ghostbuster on that channel (I think that they air the show on weekeneds).

Watching Garfiled after acting like a jerk to someone else surely brings a warm feeling to my heart.
