Interesting JMS factoid #1



A few weeks back I was going thru some of my very old videos. We're talking the cartoons my mum used to record for me when i was about 6 years old.

One of these videos was devoted to my favourite 80's cartoon She-ra:princess of Power. Well, guess who's name came up on one of the episode's writing credits. You got it the man pretty much responsible for us all spending so much time here: JMS
Admittedly i don't know that it's the same JMS, but how many of them can there be?!

Anyone got any interesting little tidbits they've noticed about The Man?!

We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest...
Oh, yeah, JMS actually doesn't even bother trying to deny his work on He-Man and She-Ra. Not to mention Captain Power and, of course, Murder, She Wrote.

That's the really interesting thing, IMO, about JMS' career. It's actually a pretty 'normal' one -- especially if you compare it against his friend Harlan. Joe doesn't seem to have had any compunction about associating with a 'mere' cartoon series..

Don't forget "The Real Ghostbusters". The funny thing is even on He-Man you can see him using the same themes.

I used to watch He-Man all the time. I had my own castle of Grayskull, action figures etc. I used to watch She-ra sometimes.

A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral
territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter
of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space,
all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of
mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is
the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is
2259: the name of the place is Babylon 5."
One of my most treasured possessions is a Captain Power poster personally autographed by JMS at a convention a few years ago.
He told me that no matter where he goes and how many people show up for a signing, 1 person will have a Captain Power poster to sign.
He theorized that he's signed so many, in a couple of years it will be rarer to have an unsigned copy.
