Double Down: He-Man Redux

I watched He-Man as a kid. The popular 80s cartoon is now (in)famous for its ‘fabulous’ themes that may have affected kids in curious ways they’re only now beginning to fully realize. But, I digress…

In the intervening years, some millenials (look it up slacker) have had some fun with our cherished childhood muscle man (no, not Stretch). Turns out there was always more to He-Man than met our young, impressionable eyes. First, we not-so-proudly present this humorous abomination:

Wow. That certainly gave me a head change. Next, an oldie but a goodie:

I think I found my new daily affirmation video! Kudos to those who waited past the one minute mark for this video to really take off. Intrepid souls indeed.

Sure, it’s hip and ironic (the two become more and more closely related) to embrace the He-Man again. But few cartoons were as memorable and over-the-top as the Prince of Eternia was. Surely, He-Man has more to teach us, more to share. I hope you’ve enjoyed this short and mildly disturbing trip down memory lane- I know I did.

Continuing Nick’s tack of genuflecting to the YouTube, I’d like to add that the favored time killer of our generation is the best ticket to transcend borders, cultures, peoples, and prejudice. Sure, the comments on any given YouTube video can make you cringe until you curl, but if you’re selective (as you sure should be), it can be mostly magic. Case in point, this doe-eyed dear from across the pond. Take a hot minute to enjoy her tale of triumph and tragedy in the animal kingdom:

Here at the Goods, we try to highlight things that are interesting, entertaining, innovative, or redeeming. More often than not, we also try to provide some sort of video accompaniment as well. For example:

Videos make our posts more vivid and accessible and we think that’s a good thing. Of course, we don’t do it alone. We have, what I like to consider, our silent partner: YouTube.

Today, as you’ve probably heard, YouTube turns 5 years old and we wanted to take a moment to say ‘congrats’. So from all of us to you (tube), Happy 5th Birthday! We couldn’t do it without ya.
