The Real Reason He-Man’s Battle Cat was So Big

The Netflix series The Toys That Made Us looked into the origins of He-Man and She-Ra, and found that, like many cartoons of the era, the two TV series were conceived solely to sell action figures. The clip above (which contains NSFW language) explains why He-Man had a gigantic tiger for a sidekick. While the relative size of the tiger varied in the TV series (Cringer the pet was half the size of the transformed Battle Cat), it was huge in the toy line. We can assume that the reason the cat was green was to signify that it was a different species and could not be compared with a normal, everyday tiger. -via Boing Boing
