I grew up in a rural area, without much television. Then, we moved to a less rural, but still rural area that had cable. It was a joyous time in a tweens life, because there were all sorts of new shows. Cartoons weren't limited to Saturday morning anymore, you could also watch them after school.
There were a lot of my favorites, but I remember She-Ra. She was the Princess of Power and she was invincible. Even at the time, I thought they actually made her too tough (and He-Man as well). The people she fought alongside (The Great Rebellion) didn't seem to do much, so they looked weak in comparison. In fact, the bad guys (Hordak and the Evil Horde) were also very weak. She always defeated them, easily. She would jump out of the way and two bad guys would crash into each other. If you have the Three Stooges on you payroll, odds are you won't last long being a bad guy. The Evil Horde still ruled over Etheria though, even though She-Ra could have driven them out rather easily.
The animation also left a lot to be desired. They re-used frames, pictures, and poses. In fact, I can still remember the one they used every episode that was half of She-Ra's head, a close-up of her talking while she dispensed some moral lesson. I'm not sure how she got to be so moral, since she was kidnapped and raised by Hordak, but as a kid I didn't question that plot hole.
She-Ra still has a place in my heart. There weren't a lot of strong females that were leads in the 1980s, so I did appreciate her. I'm also a sucker for sword fighters, it still lasts to this day. I'm just glad that children's cartoons have gotten better. The bad guys are much better and tougher, as are the "fight scenes." The better the bad guy, the better your hero or heroine looks.
