Joe Meets Skeletor!

As promised on this week’s episode of the podcast, here’s my picture with Skeletor, Overlord of Evil! I believe the year was 1984 and I was just a young buck with a dime in my pocket and a dream in my heart. He-Man and Skeletor did an appearance at my local toy store and my mom was fetch enough to take me to meet my heroes.

It boggled my mind at the time that these two adversaries could just stand next to each other and take pictures like all was fine and Skeletor hadn’t tried to take over Castle Grayskull like a hundred times in the past, but whatever. I was in no position to argue with getting a good photo op.

As the years passed, this has become of – if not THE – best photos of my childhood. I absolutely love this in all of the possible ways that can be imagined. It’s not everyday you get to meet your heroes and Skeletor definitely did not disappoint. After being assured that Skeletor would not capture and imprison me in the dungeons of Snake Mountain, he lifted up this chubby little cub all stuffed with fluff and proved himself to be a true Master of the Universe. What a time to be alive.
