This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I have always been a little curious if Masters of the Universe would have stayed operational for a few more years had they not completely cut bait with He-Man after She-Ra started up. She-Ra started in, what, September of '85 and He-Man was out of new episodes a couple of months later.

Filmation rarely ran a series more than 2 seasons. 3 at most back then. Fat Albert being an exception. Most, despite going 2 or even 3 seasons rarely went over 30 episodes. Quite a few only ran 12 or so.

He-Man ran 2 seasons with 130 episodes and a crossover movie with She-Ra.
She-Ra ran 2 seasons with 93 episodes.
Fat Albert ran for 8 seasons and 110 episodes, not counting the odd side episodes they introduced like Brown Hornet and Legal Eagle.
Flash Gordon ran 2 seasons and 32 episodes.
Tarzan ran 4 seasons and 36 episodes that combined with Batman, Zorro, the Lone Ranger and some other shows.
Superman ran 3 seasons that merged with other shows like Batman, Aquaman, Superboy and so on.
Shazam went 3 seasons and 28 episodes.
Archie of all things ran usually 1 season but kept up with new shows for a good while or spin-offs like Sabrina, Groovie Ghoulies etc.
Bravestarr was the last and ran 65 episodes.
