He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2002) premiered on Cartoon Network on August 16, 2002. Eternia is a world of myth, sorcery and advanced technology where epic heroes accomplish remarkable deeds, strange creatures roam the world, and malevolent enemies wreak havoc. Deep within Castle Grayskull lies the repository of universal knowledge hidden long ago by the Elders of Eternia. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defend Castle Grayskull and all of Eternia from the tyrannical Skeletor and his Evil Warriors.
A sword will choose a master, a boy will become a man, and a hero will be born.

Prince Adam's narrative during the opening titles is a variation on the opening monologue from the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
(1983). In both cases, it's meant to explain the Adam/He-Man relationship, but here Adam is interrupted. The unfinished portion from the original is: "Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, 'By the power of Grayskull!'" See more
Unlike the Filmation series, in which the cast list was listed without corresponding characters, in this series the characters are identified by voice actor. However, the spelling of many of the character names is very inconsistent, not only compared to previously established way of writing them, but even from one episode to another. And sometimes, characters and voice actors are listed who were not in the episode in question. See more
Moral segments were recorded and animated for the end of every episode, but not shown during the original US broadcast run. They were all included on the DVD release. See more
