If you think there are homoerotic bits in He-Man (which I couldn't tell 
you, being a childless adult during that decade and so managed to avoid 
pretty much *all* cartoons), go watch the first few episodes of Astro 
Boy, from the 60's... I saw 5 of them at Worldcon last year, and they 
really skated very close to robopedophilia - it was scary...
