Every episode of He‐Man consisted of the two parties battling one another, with their skirmishes having little or no effect on the outside world. This was true of many of those ’80s, action figure‐centric, A vs. B cartoon shows: G.I. Joe vs. Cobra, Justice League vs. Legion of Doom, Autobots vs. Decepticons, etc. But most were at least set on Earth, so you could easily identify the bad guys — they were the ones trying to blow up Mount Rushmore.
