  • A Beastly Sideshow

    A Beastly Sideshow was a perfect and entertaining episode of He-Man and the MOTU. I liked the story because it was funny, action packed and had suspense. It was funny to see Cringer go nuts over Pretty Kittywho was a beautiful she cat. Skeletor is behind a major deception along with Evi-Lyn and Beast Man. I keep wondering why Teela is left out of the loop as her life is always put in danger. He-Man saves the day but it was a close call. It was great to see Cringer muster up courage. I look forward to the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • How did He-Man knew that Teela had been taking hostage? He last saw her near the entrance of Snake's mountain awaiting for Prince Adam.

    • If you slow down or pause you can see two rows of teeth in Skeletor's lower jaw (14:36).

    • When he has transformed Cringer into Battle Cat, why does He-Man choose to go and fight Skeletor rather than leave Snake Mountain- it was always He-Man's rule never to start a fight himself!

  • QUOTES (3)

    • He-Man: Today I want to talk to you about courage. Now courage not only means being brave in the face of danger, it also means having the strength to say no, when your friends are trying to talk you into to doing something you know is wrong. In short, courage means having principles, and sticking to them, no matter what. See you all again soon.

    • Teela: You witch!!
      Evil-Lyn: Oh! Why, thank you!

    • He-Man: You risked your life to warn me!
      Cringer: I did, didn't I? I wonder what came over me?
      He-Man: As long as we're here, let's pay Skeletor a visit.
      Cringer: Aaw, come on, He-Man! Haven't I been through enough for one day!
