Episode Summary

EDIT
Sweet Bee's Home
AIRED:
Adam's visit to Etheria is interrupted when he and Adora spot a space vessel being shot down by the Horde. The pilot turns out to be Sweet Bee, a beautiful alien who can fly and create honeycomb nets. Sweet Bee was scouting out a new home for her people after their planet was destroyed. She-Ra tells Sweet Bee that her people would most likely be enslaved by the Horde if they came to Etheria. They have to get word to the Hive not to come, but the Horde has Sweet Bee's ship and uses it to send a message encouraging her people to settle on Etheria.moreless

    "Sweet Bee's Home" is a series classic that all of the fans love with good reason. This episode combines the great characters we all know and love with fantastic direction and writing, making it one of the best episodes of the entire series. This episode is one of the most-referenced episodes of the series for the dialogue alone. Who can forget Frosta hanging all over He-Man while he pleads with She-Ra to get her away from him?! The scene where She-Ra tells He-Man to leave Frosta alone and He-Man replies, "Leave HER alone?!" and he facial expression changes over 61 times is classic! I'm sure the whole sub-plot between Frosta and He-Man was completely lost on me as a child, but as an adult I think it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a children's cartoon show! There are a lot of little directional things, too, that make this episode great. The facial expressions that Frosta has when she realizes that He-Man has a thing for Sweet Bee are the classic "take" pose that Tex Avery introduced to the world of cartoons so long ago, and they may seem too silly and out-of-place in a fantasy cartoon such as "She-Ra: Princess of Power", but I think it's that silliness that makes it funny and not stupid.



    "Sweet Bee's Home" is one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. The only way this episode could have been any better is if Skeletor had been in it!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode is generally considered the best-directed of the entire series. While the characters' expressions usually do not change more than once or twice in a single shot, He-Man's expression changes a total of 61 times in the *single* shot where Frosta attempts to give him a kiss.

    • Loo-Kee's Moral: It's hard to move to a new place, but it can be something exciting to look forward to.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Horde Trooper: Hordak, look! It's the rebels!
      Hordak: Well, what are you waiting for, you tin dolt? Blast them with the freeze cannon!

    • He-Man: Here come some Horde Troopers!
      She-Ra: You and Frosta had better take them my brother. Mermista and I will go after the spaceship.
      Frosta: Oh, that sounds like a wonderful plan!
      He-Man: (wincing) She-Ra...
      She-Ra: (smiling) No time, He-Man.

    • (An ice boulder is headed straight for Frosta, but He-Man pushes her out of the way just in time and ends up on top of her)
      He-Man: Are you all right?
      Frosta: Oh...couldn't be better...!

    • (He-Man and She-Ra punch their way through the wall)
      Shadow Weaver: She-Ra!
      Hordak: And He-Man!
      Frosta: (to Mermista) What, don't we deserve an announcement?

    • (Sweet Bee has just left to return to her hive's ship)
      He-Man: I just wish I had a chance to say goodbye, but now she's gone...
      Frosta: Yes, she certainly is--but I'm not! Aren't the stars romantic, He-Man?
      He-Man: (to She-Ra) Uh, sis, I think I'd better cut my visit short, go home early. Uh, know what I mean?
      She-Ra: Oh, I understand perfectly: you're chicken!

    • (Frosta is hanging all over He-Man)
      She-Ra: If you could leave Frosta alone for a minute, we could use a hand!
      He-Man: Leave her alone?!
