Contrary to popular belief, She-Ra and Orko had their debuts in Mightor, not He-Man.  This hack ‘n slash Hanna Barbera cartoon from 1967-69 seriously pushes the envelope as a one of the villagers steeds is hit by arrows!  Until this day, I had never seen anyone, or thing actually get hurt on a Saturday morning cartoons, no matter how many lasers or guns are fired.  I guess the 60s were a lot more progressive than I thought, or just far less caring of animal rights.
