Favorite Fictional Character (2)

Favorite Fictional Character

Thanks to Ryan at Wordsmithonia who started this for Wednesday.







Who here has heard of or watched He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? I know, I know. It's a boy thing. Well, I have a brother and he loved this cartoon when we were growing up. Soooo, I got the privilege of watching it as well. The worst part about it was, I will admit it but don't tell anyone else (let alone my brother), I actually enjoyed watching it with him.


Now, you are probably asking who are these two women on the side, they are definitely not a man let alone He-Man. Well, no they aren't. These two women are the two women in He-man's life. I liked the show because of these two women. The first on Teela, on the left, was my favorite to start with. She was adopted by Man-at-Arms and grew up to be the Warrior Goddess. Teela is the captain of the Royal Gaurd for the Prince Adam. Teela was responsible for training and protecting the Prince. Teela also always helped He-Man in his battles agains evil and Skeletor. However, Teela was never aware that Prince Adam had an alternate identity, He-Man.


I think I enjoyed Teela's character because she was tomboyish and not afraid to speak her mind. Teela would pick up a weapon and be in battle next to any man and showed no fear at all. She was a very strong woman, both mentally and physically. I think in growing up these were things I looked forward to being myself, very independent and capable to handle my own.


Now, in the same show there was the Sorceress. This woman was softer spoken and was the one who gave He-Man his powers. The Sorceress lived in Castle Grayskull. The Sorceress was always very wise and knew the right way of things. Prince Adam (He-Man) always looked the the Sorceress for wisdom and guidence in his times of need. I always loved the wisdom she held, and wanted to be smart like her.


Now, I have cheated in mentioning two characters this week and you are probably asking what is the connection between these two. Well, I always thought of these two as mother and daughter, although Teela did not know it. The Sorceress gave her daughter to Man-at-Arms knowing he was a good man and along with teaching Teela the right way he would also protect her. However, in looking for the pictures to put in this post I found that depending on what you watched or read depended on the relationship between The Sorceress and Teela. They were either mother and daughter or clones.

    You liked He-Man? I loved He-Man! Even went to see the live action movie they made because I was such a fan! Wasn't just for boys, as we were fans as well! Thanks for bringing back such great memories!

    Go He-Man! *L*

  2. I remember He-Man! I don't remember these two women in particular, though. That was a long time ago...

    The only woman I remember from those cartoons was She-Ra. I know she was He-Man's sister, but I don't know if they appeared on the same show.

    Ahh... nostalgia.

  3. My sister and I used to watch this, along with She-Ra, although she was a bigger fan because she was three years younger. This really does bring back memories. I was picturing my sister as a little girl as I was reading. Good job Mel!

    So the fictional character (meme) is a Wednesday thing? I'll have to remember that. I've got one cookin'! Maybe I'll have it ready for next Wednesday. Since I lost my job on Tuesday, I find myself with some time on my hands!

  4. I am so glad to hear other women say they watched He-Man! That is great. It was a wonderful cartoon when I was growing up. I have to say I loved it.

    I too watche She-Ra. I have thought of putting her on my list of FFC for in the future. I have a few other ideas first though.

    I am so glad everyone enjoyed the trip down memory lane. That makes me feel good about this pick.

    My bother & I use to pretend we were He-Man & Teela or She-Ra. What it wouldn't be to be those kids again. *sigh* Oh well, back to the adult world.

    Michelle, I am so sorry to hear you lost your job. I was in fear yesterday of getting laid of but made it through for now. Maybe you will have time for school then, along with more blogs. lol. Okay, seriously - I am sorry to hear that.

  6. Thanks Nikola! Glad you stopped by.

    Thanks Ryan! You really didn't like this blog did you? LOL! I am so glad you enjoyed it. This cartoon just popped in my head last week and I just couldn't wait to type it up. Now I am afraid I wont ever be able to match up to this one. I will have to wait to see what the thoughts are on the new few I have in store for the future ones. But I do have to say I do love this one.

    Ryan - sorry to hear about your cable. It is really aweful when people do that. They just don't get it.
