As a kid growing up in the 1980’s He-Man was always a favorite of mine and I could often be seen glued to the television once it came on. The show. He-man first came on air in 1983 and ran till about 1985.. I was only born then thus I would have caught the re-runs that aired till about 1988. None the less the show made an inpact on me later in life, seeing as I love role-playing games and Sword and Sorcery movies and games alike.
