I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Grayskull.

This is Cringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous-

By the power of Grayskull!

I have the power!

I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Grayskull.

Good morning, all. Now, today's duties are as follows.

Okay, I'm ready. Fire away!

Mechanic, and many faces. There's been some suspicious activity near the Spelian border. Look into it.

Ooh, spy stuff. Can I help?

No, thank you, Orko. Ram Man, Buzz Off, the palace's north wall was damaged during Skeletor's last attack.

Needs to be fortified.

Oh, wait, I'm real handy. Maybe I can-

I don't think that'll be necessary. Sentry duty?

Oh, me! Me!

Right. No rush, Your Highness.

Come on, man-in-arms. It's not fair. Everybody in the palace has something to do. A special job.


So I don't. That's why no one takes me seriously.

Well, that's not the only reason.

There's gotta be something on that list for me.

Well, the Royal Gardens are in disrepair, but the job requires someone with-

All right!


Oh, all right, Orko. Let's give it a try.

Well, I won't let you down. I'll be the best gardener you ever-

I'll make the garden nice, and the king and queen will love it, and everyone will see what I can do.

Don't worry, little bud. You're gonna feel better real soon.

Ah, what we need is a little rain.

Bring on the wetness and the trinus. Route this garden for their highness!


Ah, no! Stop!

Rain and flooding go away! Don't come back to another day!


Hey, some weather will happen, huh?

Oh, bud, speak to me. I was just trying to make the garden grow. What am I gonna do now?

Well, why don't you go see Mothman?

A great idea!


Mothman lives in the Evergreen Forest, and I hear he can make anything grow.

Mothman! Evergreen Forest! Right! Don't go anywhere.



Uh, is there a Mothman out there?


Hi, little guy. Aren't you cute?

Oh, you're cute.



Why aren't you cute?

Uh, hi. Uh, are you Mothman?



No? Okay. I'll just go back to the palace. Just forget I was ever...

The palace? King Randor's palace?

Uh, yeah. I live there. I've got a very big and heavy place to go.


Yep. I take care of the garden.

But I over-watered it a little. A lot, actually.

There, there. Little old pal, Mothman help.

So, you are Mothman!




So, you are Mothman!

Who else would I be?

Now, I want you to plant those special seeds.

And they'll make the garden grow?

You won't believe your eyes.

Okay, seeds. Do your stuff.


Mothman's seeds are duds. Nothing's happening.









Come on, bud. Grow already.

No, don't do that. I'll get help.



Man in arms? Anybody?

Who are you?

Most folks call me Mothman.

I sensed an upheaval in the plant world.

Figured I'd better have a look.

Don't like this at all.

But...but...I met Mothman.

No, you met Evilseed.

Enemy to everything that's healthy and balanced in nature.

No! This is all my fault.

Why don't you show me where you planted those seeds?

Adam! Wake up! We need you.


No sharp upkicks?

What do you want from us?


You humans have gorged yourselves upon plant life for eons.

But no more!

Time to even the score.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa...

Ha ha ha!


It's him, the guy who's not you.

All right, Evil Seed. You let him go.

Now, I'm warning you.

Not this time, Mossman. I will triumph.

Oh, yeah? You win one army.



Make one move and I trim your hedge.

Yeah, Evil Seed. And when Mossman's through with you,

then the Masters will get their turn.

Your humans are no match for my plants.

Oh, yeah? While they got all kinds of cool magical powers,

you never even dreamed of. Inside Castle Greyskull.

You don't say.


On to Castle Greyskull!


I could have gotten free by myself.

I noticed.

Grandma, get the king and queen to safety.

Thank you, but I need no assistance.

Be careful, Adam.

I'll be fine, Mother.

Adam, you must hurry.

Greyskull is in grave danger.

By the power of Greyskull!

I have the power!

Faster, Bob. Faster.

Need a ride?


You're too late!

Once I plunder your precious castle Greyskull's magic,

all of eternity shall be mine!

Does he always talk like this?


Looks like we nipped your little plant in the bud, evil seed.

No matter how many you strike down,

more will grow in that place.

You cannot defeat me.

Wrong again.

Bunch him!

You miserable morse-covered!

Good idea.


Hey, man, you're working on the wrong end.

Exactly what I was thinking.




Could use a little water.

Oh, coming right up!


You're going back to the root cellar for a long time.

Just a pinch of plant food?

The bud! You're okay!

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Glad to help.

But next time, don't go looking for shortcuts.

Tending a garden takes patience.

Well, actually, I think I'm going to give up working in the garden.

I'm more of a one-plant guy.

I'm not a one-plant guy.

Well, nothing wrong with that, Orko.

It's a sign of maturity to know your strengths and your limitations.

If you do your best, no job is too small or too big.

Mossman, the masters of the universe could use your help in fighting the forces of evil.


Way I see it, Eternia is like a garden.

Be ashamed to let a few bad seeds ruin the life.

Count me in.

Whether at home, at school, or in the garden,

any job worth doing is worth doing well.

And that requires patience, hard work...

and a rake.

Yes, Orko, and sometimes a rake.

Until next time.
