Episode Summary

Skeletor wants to steal the Widgets' Coridite- a powerful mineral substance, out of which He-Man's harness is made. Evil-Lyn devises a cunning scheme to help him; she disguises herself as a young girl lost in the forest, and persuades the Widgets to let her enter their fortress. She then tricks the Widget guard Squinch into letting her enter the private chamber where the Coridite is kept, then she steals the Coridite and takes it to Skeletor! Skeletor plans to use the Coridite to form himself a new chest plate that will make him as powerful as He-Man- can He-Man stop Skeletor's scheme and retrieve the Coridite before his most dangerous foe becomes as powerful as him?moreless

  • Evil-Lyn's Plot

    Evil-Lyn's Plot was an awesome episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I liked the story because it focused on He-Man helping the Widgets, as Castle Grayskull was safe and not in Skeletor's immediate plans. It was funny to hear the character voices and how similar some sound. The moral lesson was excellent. I liked the volcano caves. The action was exciting. I look forward to the next adventure!!!!!!!!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Teela: In today's story you saw how the Widgets were fooled by Evil-Lyn's disguise. They learned that bad things can be made to look good, and why we should always be careful and question everything that doesn't seem right. But it works both ways, and that's why the saying 'you can't judge a book by its cover' is so important. What it means is that appearances can be deceiving. And you shouldn't judge books or people by way they look. It's what's inside that really counts.

    • Squinch: I'll tell ya, He-Man. I'm through with women for good!
      Laura: Oh, you are, huh?
      Squinch: I didn't mean you, Laura. I mean pretty women!

    • Skeletor: Fool! You'll never defeat me! I have your power, too!
      He-Man: The only real power comes from inside, Skeletor. From courage, honor, and other things that you wouldn't understand.

    • Evil-Lyn: (after Skeletor has been shouting at his henchmen) As usual, Skeletor, you overreact!

  • NOTES (2)

    • The storyline for this episode was one of the first episode synopses devised for the series by Filmation. Before Paul Dini developed it into a complete script, the storyline was also used for a story in a UK He-Man annual, called "The Lodestone of the Iron Forest", which was closer to the original synopsis than the eventual episode was. Paul Dini replaced the dwarfs of the Iron Forest with his own creation, the Widgets.

    • This episode has the first appearance of the re-occuring Widgets, a kind-hearted, dwarf-like community; loved by some fans, loathed by others.
      (The Widgets are another of Filmation's own creations).
