  • Trivia

    • This is the only episode of the entire series that Prince Adam does not appear in. He is in the form of He-Man for the entire episode. (Adding to the episode's noticable feel of the early figure's mini-comics).

  • Quotes

    • Orko: Boy, the fruit on that tree looks good enough to eat doesn't it? That's like a lot of things you might find around your house or in your neighborhood. But looks can fool you. Sometimes things that look or smell good can make you very sick. Remember never taste or eat anything if you're not sure what it is. The best thing to do is ask a grown up who knows. Remember it's better to be safe than sorry. Until next time!

    • Skeletor: At last! Grayskull is mine!
      He-Man: (grabbing Skeletor) Going somewhere, Skeletor?
      Skeletor: Very well, He-Man. Another time! (disappears)
      He-Man: Anytime you like.

  • Notes

    • This is the only episode where we see Stratos' sister, Delora. Interestingly enough, in other canons she was his wife rather than his sister, and she was originally intended to be his wife in the cartoon as well, but was made his sister instead in case young male viewers would see Stratos as 'sissy' if he had a love interest.
