  • Hunter becoming the Hunted

    Basically the whole episode is your typical ecology message but it's done right without seeming like properganda. One of the things I like is that they don't make the opposition He-Man and Telia have to fight seem like some straight foward bad guy, in a way he sort of reminds me of a few of those Myosoki villians. Baron Grod is actually a good guy by nature but the problem is he can't clearly percevive his current actions holding a corruptive nature to them. Sure thankfully he doesn't kill his animals but he imprisons them by holding them in suspended animation, he doesn't have a real understanding that the animals he imprisons are living beings, he just perceves them as trophy's reminders of achevements in the game he constantly plays. And of course it takes He-Man and Telia to knock some sense into him and of course we see Baron Grod forgot one important rule in huntering, the hunter can become the hunted.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The moral of this episode is temper. When you lose your temper, you can't think clearly. We all get angry at times, but we should learn to control our tempers. It's better to stay cool and talk things out reasonably. Now it's not always easy, but it's usually the best way to solve any problem.

    • When the Baron is transporting the unicorn, why is he flying one of Skeletor's vehicles? Whoops!!

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Teela: In today's story I was very angry at Baron Grod. I was supposed to try and talk him out of hunting the Unicorn, but I kept losing my temper. And when you lose your temper you can't think clearly. We all get angry at times, but we should learn to control our tempers. It's better to stay cool and talk things out reasonably. Now it's not always easy, but it's usually the best way to solve any problem. Until next time, bye.

    • Baron Grod: Your pet is not very brave is he? I built mine to fear nothing.
      Prince Adam: Ahh, he has his moments, unfortunately this isn't one of them. (whispers to Cringer) Will you get down your embarassing me.
      Cringer: I'd rather be embarassed then eaten.
      Baron Grod: A shame, such a good looking beast.

    • Baron Grod: You...you saved me?
      He-Man: It's not much fun being chased and trapped is it?
      Teela: Now, maybe you know how animals feel when you hunt them.
      Baron Grod: I never realised, I've been a fool. I'll free the unicorn and all the other animals too.
      He-Man: Well, it looks like our work is finished.

    • Cringer: Can we go now, Adam? This place gives me the creeps!
      Prince Adam: Cringer, that's very rude! You apoligize now!
      Cringer: I'm sorry you live in such a creepy place, Sorceress!
