Having been off ill recently I watched a few old Sixties cartoons on You Tube to cheer myself up.
Stuff I loved as a kid like Frankenstein Junior, Shazzan, Marine Boy and Heckle and Jeckle.
There were some cartoons that I'm aware of now [ I collected them as KIDS brand videos in the Nineties] but not sure at all if I watched them as a kid: Herculoids, Young Samson and the one I may have watched, Space Ghost.
Giving these a whirl I noticed a thread emerging, the similarity with He-Man!
To see what I mean have a look at the opening of Young Samson on You Tube. Watch the transformation into the muscled Young Samson and his lion. He-Man and Battle cat or what!
And as for the famous 'I have the Power' sword raising check out Might Mightors' similar move arounfdthe 1.07 minute mark here
As a reminder what the He-Man intro was like have a gander on You Tube too
Are there any links between these cartoons?
Did you watch them as a kid?
