Now doesn’t that brighten your day? Here is a picture of He-Man and Skeletor putting aside their differences to help ease the pain of others.

I’m not sure the print is legible but it reads: “Three Masters of the Universe characters recently paid a visit to the pediatric department at Frederick Memorial Hospital. The visit to spread good cheer was made possible by Frederick Towne Mall and Mattel Toys. Getting a handshake is Adam White, 3 1/2, of New Market, as he is held by grandmother Mary Louise Dotterer. Standing from the left are He-Man (Rick Malee), Skeletor (Rudy Fish), and Orko (Debbie Raley).
