Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that age has done little to weather the appeal of this classic cartoon, and the show's positive messages about issues like self-confidence, responsibility, and trust are both woven into the storyline and discussed directly by the characters at the show's end. Older kids might snicker over the show's dated style (especially He-Man's mullet-like hairdo), but youngsters will overlook it in light of the action and adventure. In its time, He-Man was controversial because of its use of hand-to-hand combat, but by today's standards, the violence is pretty tame, and the characters often opt for nonviolent methods (trapping, pushing, dodging) rather than weaponry or fighting.

Sexual Content

Many of the characters wear tight clothing that accentuates their curves and breasts; or, in He-Man's case, his chiseled gluteals and chest.


He-Man uses a sword and a variety of other weapons, but most of his acts are in defense, deflecting laser blasts or other attacks from the villains. Despite his brawn, he often relies on less violent tactics like trapping or tying up his enemies. Exaggerated cartoon violence shows characters surviving long falls with little injury. Some villains will seem scary to youngsters.

Social Behavior

Each episode illustrates an important social lesson like honesty, self-esteem, and being trustworthy. Not only are these themes woven into the story, but they're also reinforced by summary segments in which He-Man and his friends recap the lessons learned during the show.


During its heyday two decades ago, the show was tied to an extensive merchandising line of clothing, games, toys, and accessories, though there's little fear (or hope) of finding them on store shelves today.
