Episode Summary

EDIT
When King Randor's beautiful but snobbish and stuck-up niece Lady Edwina comes to stay at the Palace, Orko is attracted to her and tries unsuccessfully to impress her. He thinks back to a magical medallion that he once had when he arrived on Eternia years before in a freak storm, when he saved a young Prince Adam and Cringer from the Tar Swamp, losing the medallion in the process. He heads off to the swamps to try and find the lost charm to impress Edwina, but unfortunately he is there at exactly the same time as Skeletor, who, with Evil Lyn and Beast Man, has come up with a magical potion to resurrect ancient beasts from the swamp to use in an attack on the Royal Palace...moreless

    8.0
    Creatures From The Tar Swamp was a good episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I liked the moral of the story but I didn't really care for Lady Edwina. It was interesting to learn how Orko came to be in the Royal Palace. Skeletor had a monsterous plot and seemed to win with ease. Where were all the guards? Orko inadvertantly saved the day by losing something valuable. The ending was hilarious! I look forward to the next episode!!!!!!!!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • He-Man is animated/posed as if he were holding his sword but he is not holding anything (17:30).

    • One of the names that Lady Edwina mistakenly calls Orko when she's trying to get his name right is "Gorpo", which was actually an early draft name for the character.

    • "Gorpo" is also the named used in the Brazilian Portuguese dubbing for Orko, which creates a weird situation since Brazilian viewers end up not understanding why "Gorpo" has an "O" in his shirt!

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Adam: Today's story was about something more precious, more valuable than gold or silver; it's called friendship. Orko learned that friendship can't be bought. Giving somebody a present may get that person to act as if he or she is your friend, but don't be fooled. A real friend is someone who likes you for yourself, not your presents. So don't try to buy friendship. Just be yourself and treat others with honesty and respect, and then you'll know the friends you make will be real ones.

    • Skeletor: (toasting a drink) To my conquest of Eternia!
      Evil-Lyn: To our conquest, you mean!
      Teela: Can we join the party?
