    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Response: It might be true, but Roboto didn't appear in this episode.

      • Despite having He-Man's pincer claw gauntlet, Randor appears to know how to use them without He-Man telling him how to fire the pincers and retract them.

      • If all tech is down, does this mean that the Masters should be pretty worried about Roboto? I mean, he'd pretty much be dead.

      • If all the power is gone from Eternia, why do Randor's binoculars still work? The humming noise they make and the automatic zoom would seem to indicate that they're at least partly electronic.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Randor (angry, to the Snakemen): "If you've so much as touched one hair on her head..."

      • Trapjaw: [Mumbling]
        Tri-Klops: What are you complaining about? My eye sensors are out. I can't see a blasted thing!

      • Skeletor: Where is that fool Trapjaw? He should be back by now.
        [Trapjaw crashes into Skeletor's throne room with a destroyed Terrordactyl.]
        Skeletor: Well, what do you have to say for yourself?
        Trapjaw: [Mumbles, due to his mechanical jaw not working.]
        Evil-Lyn: Apparantly, nothing.
        [Tri-Klops stumbles into the room, his headgear not working.]

    • NOTES (7)

      • The Ergon device that keeps Sortech alive is similar to Iron Man's suit.

      • Only appearance of King Taurius' kind known as the Mintauran. They are Eternia's minotaurs.

      • Prahvus, seen in a flashback of "Out of the past," makes an appearance in Sortech's story.

      • This is the first time in He-Man history that a character is stabbed.

      • I believe that this is the first time in cartoon history that Queen Marlena has actually gotten into a fight.

      • The transmission of Sortech and the discovering of his true form was like a parody to the identity of the wizard in the L. Frank Buam story, "The Wizard of Oz," sorry for any mispelling of the author.

      • The writer of this episode, Michael Halperin, wrote the series bible for the original He-Man series and created many of the familiar aspects of MOTU, thus making him to some extent the creator of MOTU as we know it. However, despite his role in creating the mythology, this is the first actual episode he has ever written- he never wrote an episode himself in the original series.
