IF YOU were a child of the 80s you will well remember the cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
The animated show has now being given a reboot with a brand new Netflix. series.
When was He-Man originally on TV?
Fans of the He-Man might be surprised to hear the show actually only ran for two seasons.
The show aired from 1983 to 1985 and consisted of 65 episodes.
The series was so successful that it spawned a spin-off series, She-Ra: Princess of Power, following the adventures of He-Man's sister, Princess Adora.
There was also a live action film version of the cartoon, which was released in 1987.
What was He-Man about?
The series takes place on Eternia, a planet of magic, myth and fantasy. Its lead character is Prince Adam, the young son of Eternia's rulers, King Randor and Queen Marlena.
Whenever Prince Adam holds the Sword of Power aloft and proclaims "By the Power of Grayskull!" he is endowed with "fabulous secret powers" and transformed into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.
Together with his close allies, Battle Cat, The Sorceress, Teela, Man-At-Arms and Orko, He-Man uses his powers to defend Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor. Skeletor's main goal is to conquer the mysterious fortress of Castle Grayskull, from which He-Man draws his powers.
If successful, Skeletor would have enough power to rule all of Eternia and possibly the entire universe.
