When Trap-Jaw says, "We have you now, Teela," he is talking in TriKlops voice.
In the moral segment to this episode, Man-At-Arms is seen repairing a robot that looks like one of the Zaktons, from "Keeper of the Ancient Ruins", though it's probably not meant to be one of them.
In the scene where He-Man and Teela are trying to break into Snake Mountain, He-Man is given some dialogue that's so poor it's hilarious. Sounding more like a villain than a hero, he's gone nearly as out of character as Teela, insisting on smashing their way into Snake Mountain, thus making a confrontation with Skeletor inevitable, instead of sneaking in unnoticed!
When the Royal Family are waiting for word from Man-At-Arms, why is Prince Adam just sitting on his ass in the lab, waiting to hear from him? Shouldn't he be out scouring Eternia as He-Man, looking for Man-At-Arms?
Teela comes across as very out of character in this episode. It is not like her to punish herself and sink into despair over a mistake - normally she would relentlessly strive to compensate for her error!
This episode provides an excellent insight into the rarely-seen character of Zodac, and how his allegiance is divided between both good and evil forces.
This episode contains a classic scene that no fan of the series should miss, in which He-Man for the one and only time comes close to being tempted by the ways of evil.
It seems very unusual (and very impossible) that Skeletor should be drilling to the center of the planet to get the Starseed- and even more ludicrous that the only damage it causes are minor ground tremors!
Given Sibylline's reputation as one of Eternia'sdeadliest villains, why has she never been mentioned before? Also, everybody (save Orko)is willing - if not eager -to give her the benefit ofa doubt.Wouldthey be nearly asopen if, say,Skeletorannounced that he'd reformed?Are bad reputations really this easy to shake off, or are the Heroic Warriors just suckers for a pretty face?
Why do Nami and Shalandor look like humans with green skin while every single other Aquatican resembles a fish?
Princess Nami looks exactly like Celice from "Song of Celice" with green skin and pink hair.
Goof: After Orko tells Adam why Cringer was too afraid to come on vacation, Adam has He-Man's laugh.
A strange emissary of The Sorceress called Great Bird appears in this episode. It was never seen in any others.
The Zaktons are apparently thousands of years old- but did the Eternian Ancients really have the technology to build powerful robots? It would have made more sense if the ruins had been guarded by the spirits of the Ancients themselves, rather than robots.
Goof: When Orko gets scared of Man-E-Faces after he turns into a clone of Orko, Adam has He-Man's laugh.
Other memorable features of this episode are The Sorceress appearing in her true form outside of Grayskull, and a blink-and-you'll-miss-her cameo by Lady Edwina from "Creatures from the Tar Swamp."
This was the first appearance of Man-E-Faces in the series. His character was changed substantially from Mattel's original concept - rather than being a hero/villain with a split personality, he is portrayed as an actor who uses his faces mainly for theatrical purposes. He went on to appear only in one further He-Man episode- season 2's "The Shadow of Skeletor".
In this episode we get to see the hidden slot in Prince Adam's bedroom wall, where he keeps the Sword of Power.
Why is Orko left alone at the palace, without any real defence? It doesn't make sense that King Randor would leave the palace with only Orko to defend it - aren't there even any guardsmen around?
Why does Teela not suspect Adam's secret, when Adam and Cringer vanish in the middle of nowhere and are suddenly replaced by He-Man and Battle Cat?
