Synopsis: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe® is a landmark in children s television history, being the first nationally syndicated television program based on a successful toy line. Originally produced from 1983-1985 by world renowned Filmation studios and syndicated until 1990, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe has experienced consistent popularity over the years, demonstrated by its two subsequent animated series which aired in 1990 1991 and 2002 2004 as well as its multi-year run as an exceptionally successful toy and merchandising line for Mattel® . 

Join forces with He-Man and the powerful Masters of the Universe® and go up against the evil forces of Skeletor to save the planet Eternia and to protect the secrets of Castle Grayskull. To stop Skeletor s evil plot to conquer the universe, He-Man, under the guidance of the mystical Sorceress, must use his superhuman power to wage an epic battle against the evil warlord and his army of henchman. 

Now, you can experience the magic of hearing He-Man proclaim By the power of Grayskull! all over again, thanks to this collection of all 65 episodes from the first season of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Join Prince Adam/He-Man as he mounts the fearless Battlecat and, aided by his loyal cohorts Man at Arms, Teela and Orko, clashes with Skeletor and his crew of devilish villains.

Review: The Masters of the Universe is one of the most iconic cartoons to come out of the 1980s.  The show has a HUGE cult following and still generates a ton of revenue in collectibles.  A few years back BCI released the series on DVD...these sets were not cheap, but they were super cool and full of extras.  Now, Mill Creek has picked-up the license and is re-releasing the series in their style.  What style is that?  Affordable!  The quality of these sets is wonderful...the discs are basically the same and include all the extras and some very attractive packaging.  You can get the entire first season now for only about $20!  You can also buy it in two volumes for about $10 each.  Thank goodness for Mill Creek.  This fan couldn't be happier!  They're releasing other great 80s series, like COPS, right now and I can't wait to see what else they give us in the future.  

The special features on this DVD set include: English & Spanish audio tracks, 5 Complete Episode Scripts, 50 detailed profiles of various characters, creatures and artifacts with video, Documentary - The Secret Origins of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Documentary - The Stories of He-Manand the Masters of the Universe Season 1 Part 1 and Documentary - The Stories of He-man and the Masters of the Universe Season 1 Part 2.
