  • Trivia

    • He-Mans sheaf and sword are missing from his back when Man-At-Arms arrives in the Attack Track to bring He-Man back to the Royal Palace.

    • Skeletor creates Faker rather easily, he just zaps a beam of power from his finger, and Faker forms out of nothing! If it was this easy for Skeletor to create an evil He-Man, he could have done it any other time, he could even have created a whole army of them!

  • Quotes

    • Skeletor: I shall create another He-Man an evil one called Faker.

    • Orko: In today's story you saw what happened when a stranger came to the Palace. She turned out to be evil and dangerous. Of course, turning people into animals is only make-believe, but there is nothing make-believe about how dangerous some strangers can be in real life. Never accept any food or toys or money from a stranger. Don't even talk to them. And no matter what a stranger may say, never go away with them. Terrible things have happened to some kids who did. The smart thing is to just walk away, or in my case just float away!

    • Prince Adam: Let's go, Cringer.
      Cringer: Ooh, do we have to?
      Prince Adam: You want me to go alone?
      Cringer: You sure you want me to answer that?

  • Notes

    • This episode features the only appearance of Faker in the cartoon. Filmation confused many toy buyers by giving him a completely different appearance from the toy- rather than being a blue-skinned version of He-Man with armor like Skeletor's, he appears here as an exact replica of He-Man, distinguishable only by glowing eyes. Also, in this episode he is a magical creation, whereas Mattel intended him as a robot.
