In 1990, musclebound do-gooder He-Man returned to TV with a new look, a new planet, new friends and enemies, and one old nemesis. The New Adventures of He-Man brought both He-Man and Skeletor into the kindler, gentler 90’s by toning down the violence and turning up the goofy humor.

In the revamped series, He-Man (a.k.a. Prince Adam) and Skeletor were transported from homeworld Eternia to a new planet, Primus. There they headed up two teams engaged in “The Ultimate Challenge.” Skeletor led a group of baddies known as The Mutants, while He-Man was joined by such stalwart heroes as Optikk and Flipshot.

The focus was on competition, not out-and-out battle, in keeping with the new He-Man’s image. To further prove what a good citizen he was, Prince Adam/He-Man illustrated the importance of conservation as he tried to keep Primus a safe and happy place to live.

After an initial five-part miniseries, the show’s eventual 65-episode run got underway. The new show had its fans, but not enough to keep it running for a second season. Devotees of the 80’s He-Man wanted their old hero back, and younger kids were more interested in pizza-eating, ninja-fighting turtles than they were in a bare-chested guy with a sword. And so, after one final “Ultimate Challenge” five-parter (the third of the series), The New Adventures of He-Man quietly left the air.
