Episode Summary

The Sorceress sends He-Man to the Sands of Time, to investigate the mystery surrounding a pyramid which appeared out of nowhere, then vanished as mysteriously as it appeared. When he reaches the desert, accompanied by Ram Man and Orko, He-Man comes across a villain called Lord Masque, who is causing havoc in the desert whilst intending to uncover the house of his 'mistress'. He-Man consults the Royal Archaeologist, Melaktha, who tells him that there was once a dark fortress in the desert which was home to the evil Goddess Shokoti. Suspecting this is the fortress that Masque intends to uncover, Melaktha and his young assistant Stanlin accompany the heroes to the desert to investigate Masque's scheme further.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • When Adam says to Cringer we're far out of sight now before changing to He-Man and Battlecat, he is talking in He-Man's voice.

      • The moral of this episode is quite possibly the most ridiculous, and hilarious moral in the whole series. It features Ram Man telling the viewers not to go round ramming things with their heads like he does!

      • Why does no-one suspect that Adam is He-Man here, they seem to be swapping places interchangeably! It would have been a lot easier if He-Man had been in the form of He-Man throughout the whole episode.

      • What exactly is the connection between Lord Masque and Shokoti? He refers to her as his 'mistress' but what past do they share exactly? Why does he want to raise her temple so badly?

      • It doesn't make sense that Lord Masque could have risen Shokoti's temple from the Sands and then sunk it again, only to rise it again later. It is never explained why the temple sank so the entire mystery at the start of the episode is completely unnecessary.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Ram Man: In today's story I sure was busy. Boy, did that hurt. Ramming things may look like fun, but it really isn't. Trying to use your head the way I do is not only dangerous, it's dumb. I mean you could get hurt badly. So listen to Rammy, play safely and when you use your head, use it the way it was meant to be used, to think. Until later, so long!

      • Stanlin: Hello, kitty!
        Cringer: I'm not a kitty, I'm Cringer and you scared me!
        Stanlin: You...you talk?
        Cringer: Doesn't everybody?
        Malaktha: He's a good boy. If he'd only learn to follow orders.
        Prince Adam: The King used to say the same thing about me when I was a boy.
        Cringer: He still says it!!

    • NOTES (2)

      • The guest characters in this episode are all creations of Larry DiTillio. Melaktha, who had a radically different appearance in the original storyboards, appeared in many more episodes throughout the series. Lord Masque, meanwhile, is taken from one of Larry DiTillio's RPG games, like Granamyr was.

      • This is the only two-part episode in the He-Man series. It was originally scripted as just one episode, but the Filmation bosses said it would be too expensive to make as a single episode and asked Larry DiTillio to split it into a two-parter.
