She-Ra: Princess of Power
Fantasy, Children, Adventure, Animated, Anime
With the success of the 1983 cartoon "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" and its related action-figure line, the Filmation animation studio and toy company Mattel joined forces again in 1985, this time to create a television series aimed at young girls (and collectible playthings aimed at their mother's purses). Here, the title character (who just so happens to be the twin sister of sword-swinging hero He-Man) leads a band of freedom fighters against archnemesis Hordak and his Evil Horde. When she's not busting skulls in a kid-friendly manner, She-Ra uses her magic Sword of Protection to transform into her alter ego, Princess Adora (sold separately).
