He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

"He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" is an animated television series from 2002. It follows the adventures of Eternia's Prince Adam as he does battle with the villainous, skeleton-faced, warlock Skeletor, albeit as the muscular, sword-wielding hero He-Man. In addition to a variety of allies in the Masters of the Universe, He-Man must also contend with Skeletor's own minions, like Trapjaw and Triclops; and, later, the rival faction of King Hiss and his throngs of serpent men.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was intended as a reboot of the 1980s series. The series lasted for 39 episodes.
