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.

I have the power!

I have the power!

I have the power!

So, what are we after?

Skeletor says there's a cave down there containing a weapon that's been hidden away for one thousand years.

It's one of those infernal masters!

More than one!

Nice work on reconnaissance, Becketek.

You'd think Skeletor would know we do regular patrols of this terrain.

Yeah, well, he's getting sloppy in his old age!

He's got the power!



Don't you know it's not polite to fight and run?

Get her!

Get her!








Step aside, boys. Amateur time is over.



All my evil warriors captured.

Awful, isn't it, Panthal?

So, what do you think our chances are?

Does that answer your question?

You think you can hold us in this two-bit dungeon?

Actually, yes. I designed this entire compound for that very purpose.

Be sure to thank your Kulatok friends for the generous supply of Eternia more.

Indeed, I will.

The King has decreed that the state of High Alert is no longer in force.

You are to immediately report to your hometowns and villages for a well-earned leave.

You are to immediately report to your hometowns and villages for a well-earned leave.

Oh, Randor, I can't remember how many years it's been since we've had a real vacation.

With peace in the kingdom, my heart can travel lightly.

Father, aren't we leaving ourselves short-handed?

Short-handed for what? With all of the bad guys in lock-up, there's no one left to fight.

Skeletor's not locked up.

It would be folly for him to try and mount an offensive on his own, and Skeletor knows it.

How very true.


Going fishing, eh, Ram-Man? Mind if I join you?

You got no rod, Manny. I got this.

Buzz off. Perhaps you'd like to-

Sorry, Roboto. I promised my queen fresh Viridian honeyberries.

Care for a game, Roboto?

I would be delighted.

Where to, Sprattos?

I have some unfinished business to attend to in Avion.

Care to join me?

Sure! Yee-hoo!

And so they scatter. Who was it that said, divide and conquer?

Oh, me.

I have done the dividing. Now go conquer.


Indications of disturbances occurring in several sectors of the planet. Cause unclear.

Look, I know you were promised some well-deserved rest, but-

There is no reason to apologize, Man-at-Arms. We know our duty.

We will each investigate one of the trouble spots.

So what do you think's going on?

Logic would indicate nothing more serious than a trade dispute, or perhaps some infighting among antagonistic villagers.

In any event, a welcome change from fighting Skeletor's minions.

I'm not sure what to expect.

I'm not sure what to expect.

I'm not sure what to expect.


Well, if there was a disturbance around here, it's...

I... know that raft.

I'm not sure what to expect.

I'm not sure what to expect.


I'm not sure what to expect.

What now?

Explosion in the Sands of Fire. I'm going to investigate.

We're coming too.

No, Tila. You and Adams stay here.

The new prison compound may be escape-proof, but left unguarded would be an open invitation to Skeletor.

Guard duty.

We got lucky.

When I last ventured through the Eye of Zarkane, Prince Adam and I were attacked by Skeletor's forces.


Not much chance of that happening this time, Orgo.

Oh, yeah. Right.

Ooh! Ooh! Got something!

Pick something!

Aww! That's just a fine.


What is it, Tila?

I don't know what's going on, but I can't seem to make contact with any of the other masters.

Keep trying!


Duncan, old chum. Just you and I.

Like in the good old days.

But of course, you always had Captain Randor at his sword to hide behind.

And now, He-Man.

You didn't really think you'd put me out of business, did you?

After all, if you're a cursed mystic, Wall couldn't defeat me.

You will be defeated, Keldor, just as the masters defeated your evil warriors.

You will be defeated.

You will be defeated.

You will be defeated.


Come now, Duncan.

Did you think it was unintentional that I dispatched them to an area I know full well you regularly patrol?

Why would you...

You wanted them captured to get us to let down our guard!

Yes! And you obliged me perfectly!

Oh, and as for your pathetic masters...

They are, at this very moment, being picked off one by one.




Argh! Anybody!

What's going on?

I can't reach any of the masters or my father.

Huh. Could be a malfunction.

Yeah. Okay. Your father's inventions never malfunction. Point taken.

This is bad. This is bad. This is...

Easy, Orko. What is it? I thought you were with Stratos.

Yeah, I was. But there was this big web and... and... and then something grabbed him.

We need to find the other masters. They could be in danger as well.

Prince Adam, a great evil is upon us.

What kind?

How should I know? That's what I'm going to find out.

Hold it, Tila. Remember what your father said? We can't leave Skeletor's men unguarded.

So what are we supposed to do? Sit here and let our people get attacked by... by who knows what?

Nope. You're going to sit here. I'm going to find He-Man.



By the power of Greyskull!

I have the power!

You have all done your part well.

Everything has gone according to plan.

And a brilliant plan it was, Lord Skeletor.

Luring the masters of the universe into a state of complacency, then drawing them out into the open so...

so that you, my newly formed council of evil, could capture them one by one.

You do spin a delicious web of deceit, Skeletor.

You're like a genius!

Yes, well, I do what I can.

Yes, a genius! Yes, indeed!

Panther, please don't play with the guests.

Just one thing. We took care of the masters, but what about that He-Man?

Yeah, you know he's going to try and rescue his pals.

Oh, I'm counting on it.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Next time, on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

He-Man, coming to rescue his accursed masters.

I don't enjoy being kept waiting.




He-Man will show.

I... I know he will.

Tila, I've...

Got something to tell you.


Thanks for watching!
