“How He-Man Mastered the Universe” is the essential book for anyone wanting to explore the impact that the toy-driven franchise started and changed the nature of children’s television in the U.S. Baer explores the ill-fated and now cult classic movie in depth and supports his research with interviews. He-Man may have had the power to take advantage of deregulation and syndication, but it’s Baer’s linguistic and investigative powers that reveal what went on behind the scenes. Fans of the Transformers and G.I. Joe have He-Man to thank for their coming to television.
“How He-Man Mastered the Universe” also influenced Engkilterra’s “Disneyland Is Creativity: 25 Tips for Becoming More Creative” and had a part to play in “My Life in the Projects: A kid’s-eye view of HUD housing in the 1980s.” Come join us at our booth and find amazing books and penguins!
