UK's Channel Four polled The 100 Greatest Kids' TV Shows.
Where did He-Man finish?
UK's Channel Four decided to do The 100 Greatest Kids'
TV Shows on 27th August 2001. After a poll with many
votes cast, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
finished in tenth position, much to the chagrin of the producers.
They had obviously thought that the program was going to
end up a long way behind first place and thus no creators
were interviewed, no decent clips were shown and some of
the weirdest comments about He-Man are featured.
It should be noted that this poll received a lot of bad
feedback for letting The Simpsons be entered as
a cartoon for kids (when it is clearly an adult-based cartoon),
and subsequently winning!
in order of appearance:
Stephen gives possibly the most misguided and unintentionally-comical
interview about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
Apparently the show was related to America's war on the
USSR, and for this reason is "quite scary." It
is more than probable that Stephen had never seen an episode
in his life. Stephen Armstrong is known for writing about
advertising, media and culture in the UK.
Jerry is well-known for being the animation historian and
giving the world complete episode guides to hundreds of
cartoons! He gives a decent interview explaining how He-Man
was the first toy-based cartoon.
Heather explains how Filmation made sixty-five episodes
of He-Man. Heather is a media expert in the US,
and writes many columns for many magazines.
