Those of you who grew up in the '80s, or on reruns, will remember He-Man and the Masters of the Universe as one of the gayest and cheapest cartoons of all time.

Good times. McG has been trying to get the tone down for the movie and one can only hope that it pays some homage to the '87 film—if only for Skeltetor's high drag in the finale.
