    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • A strange emissary of The Sorceress called Great Bird appears in this episode. It was never seen in any others.

      • The Zaktons are apparently thousands of years old- but did the Eternian Ancients really have the technology to build powerful robots? It would have made more sense if the ruins had been guarded by the spirits of the Ancients themselves, rather than robots.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • He-Man: Today we saw Professor Smallen find a great treasure. It wasn't gold or jewels, but something even more precious knowledge. There are many places to find knowledge and one of the easiest and best is a museum. Museums are storehouses of knowledge where you can see and learn all sorts of fascinating things. There's probably one close to you, so pay a visit. Remember, knowledge is power and you get the power.

      • He-Man: Teela, if only my powers could make you well and strong again. Help me, Sorceress. I need the wisdom of Grayskull now. Wisdom that matches my strength.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Professor Smallen later made another appearance, in "The Great Books Mystery". The Zaktons never appeared again, but they are referred to in season 2's "Happy Birthday Roboto" indicating the heroes kept in touch with them after this episode.
