He-Man was my favorite toy and cartoon until Transformers took over. I had at least 50 different action figures. “He-Men” is what I called them. My 7-year-old still plays with them!
The show, often referred to as simply He-Man, was one of the most popular animated children’s shows of the 1980s, and has retained a heavy cult following to this day.
It made its television debut in 1983 and ran until 1985, consisting of two seasons of 65 episodes each. Reruns continued to air in syndication until 1988, at which point USA Network bought the rights to the series. USA aired He-Man until September 1990.
