Filmation Friday: He-Man Meets Hannibal and...Blackbeard?

Here's Blackbeard the Pirate

and Hannibal of Carthage

from "Castle of Heroes", an episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. This episode is a truly bizarre one. An old friend of Skeletor wants to add He-Man to his army of powerful and/or evil warriors from throughout the universe. I get Hannibal from the elephant, but Blackbeard in the lavender armor and polarized lenses is kinda weird. In fact, the entire episode watches like an adventure for Tom Moldvay's Lords of Creation that got animated.

Oh what the hey, check out the episode:

In the commentary the writer was not pleased with how Black Beard was drawn either.
