It must have been a bumper time to be an evangelical Christian in the 80s, what with all the occultic cartoons tearing young children violently from the Bible and corrupting their innocent brains. With things like He-Man.
While I admit He-Man and She-Ra are horrid examples of reinforcing traditional gender roles in kids, and mediocre Hannah Barbara animation to boot, they certainly aren’t responsible for tearing me away from Jesus. No, I give full credit to a tag-team combination of Voltron and Mega Man.
I can’t help but wonder what these evangelical goobers would have thought about this fan-made video, that’s been floating about the intertubes pretty much since internet video became feasible. They might have assumed He-Man was gay recruitment propaganda or something.
