For the Honor of Grayskull

July 30th, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Growing up, we all had our after-school staples. For me, it was a bowl of cereal, my homework and today’s Hulu Days of Summer selection, She-Ra: Princess of Power.

For those who didn’t waste spend precious hours of their youth watching this classic cartoon, She-Ra, twin sister to Eternia’s He-Man , is the alter ego of Princess Adora. She’s part of a great rebellion that is trying to free her home planet, Etheria, from the evil forces of Hordak. Her beloved horse, Spirit, helps with her efforts, transforming into a flying unicorn (no wonder I loved it!) named Swift Wind when the princess calls on the power of Grayskull. As She-Ra, the princess has superhuman strength and agility, a healing touch, and the ability to speak to animals. What more does a girl need, really?

So pull up a beanbag chair, make yourself a giant bowl of Cheerios, and settle in for 26 episodes of She-Ra goodness. And if that’s not enough, there’s plenty of He-Man, too, as well as a new anime series: Slam Dunk. It’s about a social outcast who joins the high school basketball team — to impress a girl, naturally — only to realize he’s an all-star player on the courts.
