Episode Summary

The Shadow Of Skeletor
When Beast Man crashlands by Palace Eternia in one of Skeletor's shuttles, Adam, Teela, Man-At-Arms, Man-E-Faces and Ram Man discover that he was being sent to the Dark Moon of Eternia. Curious as to why Skeletor wanted to send him there, they imprison Beast Man in jail and take the ship up there themselves. Reaching Eternia's Bright Moon, they discover that Eternia's two moons are at war with one another after a resident of the Dark Moon reported seeing the people of the Bright Moon causing severe destruction on the Dark Moon. Knowing that the residents of the Bright Moon are innocent, the heroic warriors realise that Skeletor must be the real cause of the destruction, and so Man-E-Faces disguises himself with a Beast Man costume, and goes to the Dark Moon to spy on Skeletor and his warriors and foil their scheme.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • When Skeletor's Warriors are recounting their acts of destruction, TrapJaw's mechanical arm is on the wrong side.

      • Why exactly does Skeletor want to stir war between Eternia's moons? What good will it do him apart from once again proving his role as an all-round bad guy? It's possible that he may hope that the war will enable him to conquer both moons himself, but it is never explained for sure.

      • There's a lot of inconsistency in the series between Eternia's moons- in this episode they are both inhabited by humans, but in most others they appear uninhabited- and in some episodes there's only one!

      • Where exactly did the Beast Man costume come from? Did they just happen to have a sewing machine in the ship?

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Man-E-Faces: Today you saw what happened when Ram Man and I got into an argument. It almost ruined our friendship.
        Ram Man: I'm sure happy we're pals again.
        Man-E-Faces: When people lost their temper, they often say things they later regret. So if you get angry, be careful you don't say something you really don't mean. Something you'll be sorry about later.
        Ram Man: I'm glad we made up, because now we're better friends than ever. Right Man-E?
        Man-E-Faces: Right, Rammy!

      • Skeletor: Take a Bow, Man-E-Faces, because your acting days are over!

      • Teela: What were you saying, Adam? By the...?
        Adam: Oh Yeah, By the way Teela, remind me to show you my great new jacket when we get home!

    • NOTES (1)

      • This episode features the second, and final, appearance of Man-E-Faces in the cartoon. It is well-known for its famous scene in which Adam almost transforms to He-Man in front of Teela.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Ram-Man: Good thing I set my head to stone.

        An obvious play on words from various Star Trek incarnations by setting their common weapon, the phaser, to "stun."
