Are we talking about the same He-Man animated series?

"Emotional range of the concept?" Are we talking about the same cheesy 80s cartoon? If anything, Dolph Lundgren added heft to an otherwise 2-D cartoon character. He-Man may have been an entertaining animated series in the 80s, and surely the nostalgia is still there, but it can't be seen as anything serious given the over the top, often bizarre story lines and cheesy dialogue.

The characters were obviously fashioned so that they could be translated into action figures of vice verse.

The movie was adequate given the poor source material. And why would Bill Conti include the animated series' theme? It's a cheesy, sythn theme befitting the equally low-brow cartoon. I'm looking at the "The Secret of the Sword" right now and the story-line, voice work and score are all horrific.

I understand the loyalty to the show; but the bottom line is He-Man is no Shakespeare.
