He-Man Official - Youtube Channel

Boys and ghouls, if you are a fan of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated show from Filmation in the early 80s, then I have the Youtube channel for you to subscribe to. I came across the "He-Man Official" channel few months back and it has some really fantastic content that, channel admin, James Eatock is putting out there for fans of the show. He's clearly a guy that is a huge fan and the content reflects that. He has trivia, break down of storyboards in comparison to the show, episode commentary and more. Now there is one thing that I want to point out on this channel that is in that "more" category and it's absolutely fantastic! James Eatock along with Dusan M. have "painstakingly" gone through the music/sfx tracks from the original episodes and pieced together the original cues heard in the show.

This is something fans of the show have been clamoring for, for the last 30 years. The closest any of the fans have had was an official soundtrack released in Argentina in the 80s. This had some nice selections from the show, but was missing a large majority of music including fan favorite cues from many of the action sequenses. Well now by visiting this channel you can hear those in great audio quality. If you aren't sold on it, check out the video below for a track titled "Mystic Grounds". This is my personal all-time-favorite bit of music heard in the show. It just captures the magic, mystery, spookiness and adventure of the show.
