guide to all of the moral segments in the He-Man
series. Who got the most morals?
episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
ended with one of the more familiar cast members providing
information regarding a particular topic. We could all learn
something from these messages, and back then that was the
moral segment at the end of a He-Man episode would
relate to a particular plot in the episode, and then on
some occasions it would not. Classic morals in He-Man's
run came in episodes such as "Double Edged Sword"
where He-Man blatantly admits to the audience that what
they are watching is a television adventure series, and
that real life is a lot more dangerous; "Island of
Fear" involves Adam and Teela explaining to the audience
that progress occasionally means pulling down trees in order
to put up buildings, and "The Eternia Flower"
in which Teela warns the audience just how dangerous drugs
are in a completely tragic tone. Of course there were many
more great morals in the series, and naturally there was
those that were infamous, such as Ram Man's moral in "House
of Shokoti" Part 1, where he tells the audience not
to head butt things like he does, and the moral to "The
Problem With Power" where Man-At-Arms talks about safety,
instead of the episode's entire message of responsibility.
During these moral segments, some characters were favored
more than others.
great character like the Sorceress only received one moral
segment, and she did not even appear in the episode itself,
whereas the comical Orko managed to have the most appearances.
On other segments a character would be paired up with another
character, and they would both deliver the moral. Or as
sometimes happened the character would just show up to make
the screen more visually interesting. Battle Cat's only
two appearances in the moral segments came when He-Man just
sat on his saddle and delivered the moral. Battle Cat just
roared in his familiar fashion and offered no comments.
Cringer slept all the way through Orko's delivery to the
moral of "The Sleepers Awaken."
had the honor of appearing in 44 moral segments; that includes
solo appearances as well as with another cast member, 39
appearances for the warm-hearted Teela, 34 appearances for
He-Man, and wise Man-At-Arms is in fourth with 25 appearances.
Maybe Orko's contract just gave him the rights to constantly
appear in these segments?
- "The Cosmic Comet"
"In today's story Zagraz had a problem. He lost his
confidence in himself because he had once failed. Well now
we all fail sometimes, but we should never be afraid to
try again. And we should always keep believing in ourselves.
As the old saying goes 'if at first you don't succeed, try
try again.' Until later, bye."
- "The Shaping Staff"
"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
- "Disappearing Act"
"Being the most powerful man in the universe isn't
all that makes He-Man such a great hero. Being strong is
fine, but there's something even better. In today's story
He-Man used something even more powerful than his muscles
to beat Skeletor. Do you know what it was? If you said 'his
brain,' you were right. And just like a muscle, your brain
is something you can develop to give yourself great power."
- "Diamond Ray of Disappearance"
"In today's story, Skeletor was looking for a short
cut, a quick way to riches and power. You may know some
people like that, always looking for the quick way to get
ahead of everybody else. Well it doesn't work that way.
The people who succeed are the ones who work for what they
want; so don't be fooled by those who say they have a sure
thing. There's always a catch to it; don't sell yourself
short. The right way is the best way. Until later."
- "She-Demon of Phantos"
- He-Man and Battle Cat He-Man: "I'd like to talk to you for
just a moment about safety. When we go to the beach there
are lifeguards there to watch out for our safety. Crossing
guards are in the street for the same reason, to help protect
us. Now things like that are fine, but we can't count on
someone always being around to protect us. We should practice
thinking of safety all the time. So don't take a chance.
And that's true whether you're crossing a street, or driving
a car. Think safety." Battle Cat: (Roaring)
- "Teela's Quest"
"In today's story, I went in search of my mother. I
found her, but I also found something else; that the man
who had cared for me since I was a baby, who loved me as
he would his own daughter, was just as much my father as
any parent could be. And so whether they are someone we
were born to or whether they chose us to adopt, it doesn't
matter. The ones who protect us, and teach us, and love
us; they are the ones we call mother and father. And they
deserve the same kind of love from us. Until next time."
- "The Curse of the Spellstone"
"You've all seen how Orko's magical tricks don't always
go the way he planned. Sometimes they backfire on him. The
same thing is true of practical jokes. Sometimes they don't
go the way you planned, and you or someone else can get
hurt. So be sure and think twice before playing a joke or
a trick on anybody. It might not go the way you planned
and someone could wind up losing a finger or an arm, or
maybe even an eye. And no joke is worth that is it? See
you again soon."
- "The Time Corridor"
- He-Man and Battle Cat He-Man: "As we've just seen Skeletor
went back into the past to make evil things happen. In reality
no one can go back into the past, that's only make-believe.
But we can try to learn from the past, from things that
have happened to us, and try to apply them toward being
better people today. Remember, it's today that counts. So
make it the best day possible. Until next time this is He-Man
wishing you good health and good luck." Battle Cat: (Roaring)
- "The Dragon Invasion"
"In today's story Skeletor tried to conquer Eternia
by using animals in an evil way. Animals like all living
things should be treated with kindness and respect. I hope
that those of you who have a dog or cat or maybe even a
hamster remember that. When we have a pet we also have a
responsibility because they depend on us, but you can be
sure of one thing. However much we love them, they return
that love, and more. Well, time for me to disappear, bye."
- "A Friend in Need"
"In today's story Ilena tried taking a magic potion
which she thought would help her. Well, she found out there
aren't any magic potions. And you know what? There aren't
any magic drugs either. Anytime you take one from anybody
but your parents or your doctor, you're taking a very big
chance. Your gambling with your health, maybe even you life.
Drugs don't make your problems go away, they just create
- "Masks of Power"
- Teela and Orko Teela: "All of us make mistakes. And
Una and Aran made a big one. But when they realized what
they had done, they didn't lie about it, they didn't try
to cover it up. Instead they admitted it. As He-Man said,
admitting your wrong takes courage. But when you do, you've
taken the first big step toward making up for it." Orko: "Of course, if you're like me,
you never make a mistake." Teela: "Orko." Orko: "I guess I'd better disappear.
Oops! I think I made a mistake."
- "Evil-Lyn's Plot"
"In today's story you saw how the Widgets were fooled
by Evil-Lyn's disguise. They learned that bad things can
be made to look good, and why we should always be careful
and question everything that doesn't seem right. But it
works both ways, and that's why the saying 'you can't judge
a book by its cover' is so important. What it means is that
appearances can be deceiving. And you shouldn't judge books
or people by way they look. It's what's inside that really
- "Like Father, Like Daughter"
"In today's story I asked my father for permission
to do something I wanted to do. When he didn't give it to
me I did it anyway. I was lucky. Nothing happened to me,
but it could have. Now maybe mothers and fathers aren't
always right, but if they don't always let us do something
we want to do, there's generally a pretty good reason. All
in all, I think it's pretty nice to have someone who's always
trying to do what's best for us. And who loves us enough
to say 'no,' when it would be much easier to say 'yes.'"
- "Colossor Awakes"
- Teela and He-Man Teela: "I love running at this time
of the day." He-Man: "Yeah, me too. Makes me feel
close to nature." Teela: "The best part is that it's
wonderful exercise." He-Man: "It's the best. Of course,
one should check with a doctor before doing any heavy exercise." Teela: "Right! And then start off
just a little each day." He-Man: "I sure wish we could tell
that to everybody." Teela: "I think we just did." He-Man: "We did?" Teela: "See for yourself." He-Man: "Remember, be good to your
body, and it'll be good to you." Teela: "Well said He-Man. Now I'll
race you to the tree!" He-Man: "Okay!"
- "A Beastly Sideshow"
"Today I want to talk to you about courage. Now courage
not only means being brave in the face of danger, it also
means having the strength to say no, when your friends are
trying to talk you into to doing something you know is wrong.
In short, courage means having principles, and sticking
to them, no matter what. See you all again soon."
- "Reign of the Monster"
"Boy, the fruit on that tree looks good enough to eat
doesn't it? That's like a lot of things you might find around
your house or in your neighborhood. But looks can fool you.
Sometimes things that look or smell good can make you very
sick. Remember never taste or eat anything if you're not
sure what it is. The best thing to do is ask a grown up
who knows. Remember it's better to be safe than sorry. Until
- "Daimar the Demon"
"Well that Daimar was really quite a fellow wasn't
he? Orko had no idea just what he was getting into with
his mixed up magic spell, but he soon found out that he'd
let loose something he couldn't handle. Now we know that
in real life there aren't any magic spells or demons, but
there are problems. And just like Orko sometimes you'll
find you've got one that's too big for you to handle. At
times like that remember there are a lot of people out there
who really care about you. So talk to them, telling them
what's wrong, is the first step toward making things right."
- "Creatures From The Tar Swamp"
"Today's story was about something more precious, more
valuable than gold or silver; it's called friendship. Orko
learned that friendship can't be bought. Giving somebody
a present may get that person to act as if he or she is
your friend, but don't be fooled. A real friend is someone
who likes you for yourself, not your presents. So don't
try to buy friendship. Just be yourself and treat others
with honesty and respect, and then you'll know the friends
you make will be real ones."
- "Quest for He-man"
"In today's story, He-Man came to the aid of a planet
whose natural resources were being wasted. Unfortunately,
this same waste is happening now, and not on a distant planet,
but right here on Earth. We must respect the plants and
animals before they disappear. As some species already have.
There's beauty all around us, protect it, before it's too
- "Dawn of Dragoon"
"In today's story Orko was faced with a very difficult
decision. You know, when we're young most of our decisions
are made for us, but as we get older, well we want to make
more and more of them for ourselves. And that's the way
it ought to be. But sometimes we have a real tough one,
a real problem. And when that happens it's a good idea to
talk it over with someone else. Someone who really cares
about you, like your mother or father, or maybe your best
friend. Talking a problem out with someone else can be a
- "The Royal Cousin"
- He-Man and Orko He-Man: "Well Orko, Jeremy sure changed
his ways." Orko: "Yeah! He was acting pretty
rotten for a while. I think all he really wanted was for
people to notice him. But what good does it do to be noticed
if people don't like what they see?" He-Man: "That's right. The best way
to get attention is not to look for it. By being polite
and helpful, people will not only notice you, they'll like
you too." Orko: "I'm going to do something helpful
right now." He-Man: "What's that?" Orko: "I'm going to say goodbye!"
- "Song of Celice"
"In today's story the beautiful voice of Celice kept
the evil Yog from making all sorts of bad things happen.
Now I can't promise that a song will make any magic for
you. But I can promise that when you're feeling lonely or
sad, and we all do sometimes, if you try singing a song,
or maybe whistling or maybe just smiling, you'll feel a
lot better. Honest. Try it and see. And I'll be seeing you
very soon. Bye now."
- "The Return of Orko's Uncle"
"Boy, I sure got myself in trouble today. And it all
started when I fooled around with something I didn't really
understand. When you're growing up it's natural to be curious,
but when you fool around with things you don't understand
it's downright dangerous! Things like electricity, pills
or berries in the forest. Play around with them and you're
playing with trouble. Handle only the things you know are
safe, and you'll be taking a big step towards avoiding accidents.
- "Wizard of Stone Mountain"
"In today's adventure, Malik thought he could do whatever
he wanted, but instead he found that when you do something
wrong, you may get away with it for a while, but sooner
or later you have to answer for it. Fortunately for him,
Malik had friends who cared about him and came to his rescue.
All of us make mistakes, but doing something wrong when
you know it's wrong, really doesn't make sense. Sooner or
later it catches up to you. Until next time, bye."
"Today was a day for surprises, and the biggest one
of all was Skeletor and He-Man working together. By joining
their powers He-Man and Skeletor were able to stop Evilseed.
Working with others can sometimes be difficult, but if you
listen to and respect the ideas of others, even when you
don't agree with them, you'll find it's easier to get the
job done. And who knows? You may even learn something."
- "Ordeal in the Darklands"
- Teela and Man-At-Arms Teela: "I had a really close call
today, and it all started when I was so anxious to do something
that I didn't stop to think of the danger. And wouldn't
listen to anyone who tried to warn me." Man-At-Arms: "Well, we parents may
not always be right, but we try. Because we love our children,
and we try to do what's best for them. And I'll tell you
a secret; we really hate to say 'no' to something they really
want. So when we do, we usually have a pretty good reason.
Try to remember that next time your mother or father says
'no' to you."
- "Orko's Favorite Uncle"
"My Uncle Montork taught me a lot about magic, but
not just the regular kind. He taught me how to see the magic
that's all around us. Like for instance, it just has to
be magic get anything as beautiful as a rainbow. And there's
real magic in the way a mother takes care of her young.
But as my uncle said, the most wonderful magic of all is
just being alive! Bye now!"
- "The Defection"
- Teela and He-Man Teela: "As you saw into today's story,
people can change." He-Man: "Right, Teela. Sibylline had
always been an evil sorceress, but she was able to change
her ways for the better. Maybe there's something about yourself
that you don't like; a bad habit maybe." Teela: "It's easy to say 'I can't
change,' but the truth is you can change almost any behavior
if you really want to." He-Man: "And the first step is saying
to yourself 'I can.'"
- "Prince Adam No More"
"Today's story was about love. But a very special kind.
It was about the love a parent has for a child, and I bet
that's the strongest kind of love there is, because for
one thing, there's just about nothing that can change it,
no matter what. Maybe like Adam's father, your parents find
it a little difficult to say 'I love you.' Even so, you
can be sure they do. Besides, let me ask you something,
when was the last time you said 'I love you,' to them? Bye!"
- "The Taking of Grayskull"
"Uh, boy this time I really overdid it. I ate so much
I didn't have any room left in my stomach for dinner. In
fact it may be days before I'm hungry again. It really doesn't
make sense to eat too many sweets in-between meals. A little
snack is fine, but don't overdo it. Because if you do you
won't have room left for the three healthy meals which you
should have every day. Don't get carried away with sweets!
Oh, I wish I hadn't."
- "A Tale of Two Cities"
"I hope you enjoyed today's adventure. You know television
is not the only way to be entertained by an exciting story.
There is another way; it's called reading. And one of the
wonderful things about books is that they allow you to choose
whatever kind of adventure you like; a trip with an astronaut,
an adventure with the great detective Sherlock Holmes, a
comedy, anything. You can find it in a book at your school
or neighborhood library. Why I'll bet there are even some
good books right in your own home just waiting to be read."
- "Search for the VHO"
"Hovar and Justin certainly had a narrow escape didn't
they? But when one is an explorer or a scientist like Hovar,
wild animals are only one of the many dangers you face.
And yet, throughout the course of history there have been
brave men and heroic women ready and eager to be the first
to face the unknown. To challenge its dangers so that others
might follow without fear. It is to these unsung heroes
that we owe so much. See you soon with another exciting
- "The Starchild"
"Today we saw people fighting over the Starchild, but
in the end her power brought these people together. It might
surprise you to know that all of us have a power like the
Starchild's. You can't see it or touch it, but you can feel
it. It's called love. When you care deeply about others
and are kind and gentle, then you're using that power. And
that's very special magic indeed. Until later, good-bye
- "The Dragon's Gift"
"Today He-Man had to decide whether or not to chop
down a tree. Now the trees around you probably don't speak
the way Skytree did. Or if they do we haven't learned to
hear them, yet. But trees are living things, and when you
respect a tree, you show that you care about all life. Life
is a wonderful precious gift, learn to enjoy and respect
it, and you'll be a happier, better person for it. Bye for
- "The Sleepers Awaken"
- Orko and Cringer Orko: "Hi, today we met some people
who had slept for over two hundred years. Well, we don't
need that much sleep, but it is important to get enough
sleep. So here's some things to remember. Don't eat a lot
before going to bed, a glass of milk or a piece of fruit
makes a good bedtime snack. Try to go to bed at the same
time every night, and avoid any exercise or excitement before
going to bed. Well, goodnight. Oh, goodnight Cringer!" Cringer: (snoring)
- "The Search"
"There are times when everybody dreams of becoming
very rich or powerful. But what they don't think about are
the problems and responsibilities that go with it. In today's
story He-Man was tested, and he proved his worth when he
was able to resist the temptation to use his great power
for any selfish gain. He knew that it's just as important
to know when not to use force, as it is to know when to
- "It's Not My Fault"
"In today's story my pal Podi got herself into big
trouble. She made a mistake and ran away, which only made
things worse. Now everyone makes mistakes, but running away
is never a way to handle a problem. So when you make a mistake,
admit it. That's the best way I know of to start making
things right again. Until later, bye now!"
- "Valley of Power"
"It sure is nice to spend a day in the woods. Nature
offers us much to enjoy. Unfortunately some people do things,
which hurt the plant and animal life in the forest. Like
Danavas in today's story. By taking the Mother Rogue's egg
he upset the natural order of things. So the next time you're
in a beautiful outdoor setting, enjoy yourself, but be sure
to leave things just as you found them. That way the next
person can enjoy them too."
- "Trouble in Arcadia"
- He-Man and Teela Teela: "A very long time ago a wonderful
document came into being. It was called the Magna Carta." He-Man: "It was the first big step
in recognizing that all people were created equal. But even
though more laws have been passed to guarantee that, there
are still those who try to keep others from being free." Teela: "Fortunately Queen Sumana realized
in time that only by working together could her city be
saved. And that's the way it should be. Together. Right?" He-Man: "Right."
- "House of Shokoti" Part 1
- Ram Man
"In today's story I sure was busy. Boy, did that hurt.
Ramming things may look like fun, but it really isn't. Trying
to use your head the way I do is not only dangerous, it's
dumb. I mean you could get hurt badly. So listen to Rammy,
play safely and when you use your head, use it the way it
was meant to be used, to think. Until later, so long!"
- "House of Shokoti" Part 2
"In today's adventure Stanlan was trapped in an old
dark building. He had to face many dangers, from demons
to monsters. Now, in your world there are no demons or monsters,
but there's still danger in old dark places. Empty buildings
or caves may seem exciting, but you could get badly hurt
or trapped in places like that. So stay out of them, even
if one of your friends dares you to go in. Taking a risk
like than isn't brave, it's just dumb."
- "Double Edged Sword"
"Sometimes movies and television adventure series like
this one make it seem as though shooting a gun, fighting,
and taking chances are fun and exciting things to do. And
what's more, the good guys never get hurt. But in real life,
people do get hurt, even killed, when they fight or use
guns. Make believe can be fun, and there's nothing wrong
with imagining great adventures. But never forget, that
when it's the real thing, someone can get hurt. Even the
good guys. Even you."
- "The Mystery of Man-E-Faces"
- Orko and Man-E-Faces Orko: "Man-E, could you help me with
a problem?" Man-E-Faces: "Sure Orko." Orko: "I can never remember anything.
How do actors learn their speeches?" Man-E-Faces: "By rehearsing. We practice
saying them again and again. Well that's what you have to
do. If you're trying to remember something from school say
it to yourself over and over again. Rehearse it in your
mind just like an actor." Orko: "Say goodbye, say goodbye, say
goodbye." Man-E-Faces: "What are doing?" Orko: "Oh, I'm trying to remember
to say goodbye. Bye! It worked!"
- "The Region of Ice"
"Orko certainly helped us out in today's adventure,
and he learned a good lesson too. He made a promise to the
Ice Lord he thought he could break, but Adam showed him
you shouldn't make a promise knowing you're not going to
keep it. People judge you by many things, your appearance,
your honesty, the way you act. Those things show your character.
When you make a promise and don't keep it, it shows bad
character. So always think before you speak and mean what
you say. That way what you say will be respected. See you
- "Orko's Missing Magic"
- Orko Orko: "I was really unhappy when I
lost my magic. I was afraid that people wouldn't like me
anymore because I couldn't make them laugh or give them
magic presents. And then Adam told me something." Adam: "You don't have to amuse people
or give them gifts to be loved. You're a special person
Orko." Orko: "And you know what? You're special!
And you don't have to buy presents or be a clown to make
people like you. That way you'll know that the friends you
make are real friends, that they like you for yourself."
- "Eternal Darkness"
"In today's story I had a bad dream. You know bad dreams
or nightmares happen to everyone, and they can seem pretty
real. But they aren't. They’re no more real than any
make-believe story or fairy tale. So don't be ashamed or
afraid of telling anybody about your dreams. It happens
to all of us. And like so many other things, talking it
over with your mother or your father or maybe even a good
friend, can make you feel a whole lot better. Bye for now,
and pleasant dreams."
- "Keeper of the Ancient Ruins"
"Today we saw Professor Smallen find a great treasure.
It wasn't gold or jewels, but something even more precious
knowledge. There are many places to find knowledge and one
of the easiest and best is a museum. Museums are storehouses
of knowledge where you can see and learn all sorts of fascinating
things. There's probably one close to you, so pay a visit.
Remember, knowledge is power and you get the power."
- "Return of Evil"
"Today Orko was being chased by an evil robot. Orko
was very frightened, but in the end he overcame his fear
and helped He-Man defeat the robot. All of us are frightened
at one time or another, and it's nothing to be ashamed of.
Fear is natural. It makes us aware of possible danger. Without
fear we'd wind up in all kinds of trouble. So never feel
guilty because you're afraid. Listen to your fears; they'll
help you stay out of trouble. Until later, bye now."
- "Return of the Gryphon"
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "There was a really wonderful
moment in today's adventure story." Orko: "Bet I can guess what it was.
It was when He-Man brought the water out of the lake." Man-At-Arms: "No, that wasn't it." Orko: "Well then, it must've been
when He-Man lifted the whole top of the mountain." Man-At-Arms: "That was incredible,
but that wasn't it either." Orko: "Well I give up." Man-At-Arms: "The most wonderful moment
was when Thad realized he must face his own responsibilities.
In that one tiny second I saw a boy grow into a man."
- "Temple of The Sun"
"Today we met Nepthu, a man who wanted to become a
leader and became one. But Nepthu used his leadership for
his own selfish glory and in the end he got what he deserved.
Being a good leader takes a lot of responsibility, but you
must also be responsible when you follow a leader. Don't
do something wrong or dangerous because someone tells you
to. Think before you act. We can't all be leaders, but we
can all choose what's right and wrong for ourselves."
- "City Beneath the Sea"
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "In today's story, the
Aquaticans were afraid to trust us because we looked different
from them. Mer-Man talked them into thinking we were their
enemies, and it almost caused great harm. You should never
judge a person by the way he looks, but rather by the way
he behaves." Orko: "Because it's what's inside
a person that really counts, right?" Man-At-Arms: "Orko you're absolutely
right." Orko: "I always am!"
- "Teela's Trial"
"Today Teela made a mistake. But instead of trying
to correct it, she ran away. That was an even bigger mistake.
Making mistakes is part of being human, but punishing yourself
or quitting because of it, is no way to make things better.
The right thing to do is accept your error and try not to
make that same mistake again. That's a lot smarter than
running away. Until our next exciting adventure goodbye
- "Dree Elle's Return"
"In today's story you saw what happened when Yuckers
sneezed an accidentally blew into the Horn of Evil. He was
just playing around, and didn't mean to do anything wrong,
but the results were just as bad. Of course there aren't
Horn's of Evil in your house, but there are many things
that can be just as dangerous. Many people have been hurt
because they were careless and played with things like knives
and matches and glasses and tools. So as He-Man always tells
me, playing is fine, but play it safe."
- "Game Plan"
"Everybody likes to play games, but when they do it's
natural to try and win. But some people try so hard to win
that they forget about safety. They get excited, lose their
tempers and then run the risk or hurting themselves or someone
else by playing too rough. No game is worth an injury. When
you play don't be so anxious to win that you'll do something
which you'll regret later on. Play it safe."
- "Eye of the Beholder"
"Today we met Garth who to some people looked like
a monster. But Garth wasn't a monster; he was a good person
with a noble soul. And in the end his beauty showed through.
Real beauty comes from inside which is why ugly people can
sometimes be the most beautiful people to know, and why
people who look beautiful sometimes act very ugly. Being
beautiful on the outside is alright, but being beautiful
on the inside, that's the best."
- "Quest for the Sword"
"It's a good thing Orko got my sword back today, or
Prince Adam might never have been seen again. The rock man
who took my sword thought it made him a leader, but he was
wrong. A sword or any other symbol doesn't make a person
a good leader. What does is intelligence, respect for others
and an unselfish desire to do good. People are proud of
a leader with those qualities. So, if you develop them in
yourself, you could become a good leader too. See you soon."
- "Castle of Heroes"
"Orko certainly had an exciting lesson in history today.
Of course chances are most of you won't have the same opportunity
to meet any of those famous people who lived long ago, but
even so remember that just like you they were very real.
For the most part, the people we read about in history books
lead pretty exciting lives. And that's why to me history
is like, well it's like a great adventure story. And the
best part is that it really happened. Well, see you soon."
- "The Once and Future Duke"
"Swimming is fun and good for you, but going in the
water can be very dangerous, on your planet as well as mine.
But there's no chance that you'll lose your memory as Orko
did, but the threat of drowning is very real. That's why
it's important to be aware of the rules of water safety.
Don't play jokes in the water. Always be sure to swim in
an area where an adult is watching you, and never swim alone.
Go with a friend. Keep your swimming safe, and live to swim
- "The Witch and The Warrior"
"I've been in a number of difficult situations, but
none of them were tougher than trying to get along with
Evil-Lyn. And yet, I found that if you make the best of
a bad situation, you can come out a winner. So when things
go wrong, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, try to
work it out, with a smile. You might surprise yourself when
you see how well it works. Until next time."
- "The Return of Granamyr"
- King Randor and He-Man King Randor: "Helping his dragon friends
sure kept He-Man busy today, and Brindle's tests were pretty
tough. In one of those tests to prove his courage he was
challenged to a fight, but He-Man wouldn't fight." He-Man: "The fact is, fighting never
proves anything. Trying to find a peaceful way to settle
a problem is usually the best way. And if someone calls
you a 'coward' or a 'chicken,' don't let it worry you. If
often takes more courage not to fight. Until later, bye
- "Pawns of the Game Master"
"Today He-Man was forced to play a dangerous game by
the Game Master. The Game Master bragged a lot about winning
all the time, but he became angry when he lost and said
it wasn't fair. Well playing games can be a lot of fun,
but boasting when you win, or getting angry when you lose
spoils the fun for everyone, and pretty soon, nobody will
want to play with you. So take a tip from me, be a good
winner and a good loser. You'll enjoy your games more and
so will the people who play with you. Good luck and goodbye!"
- "Golden Disks of Knowledge"
"In today's episode Zanthor committed a crime, but
when he was given a chance to make up for it, he came through
with flying colors. You know, it's important to give our
friends a chance to make up for their mistakes. Of course
if they continue to do wrong, we might want to think about
whether we really want them for a friend or not. But many
wrongdoers do see the error of their ways. All they need
is a second chance. Everybody deserves that."
- "The Huntsman"
"In today's story I was very angry at Baron Grod. I
was supposed to try and talk him out of hunting the Unicorn,
but I kept losing my temper. And when you lose your temper
you can't think clearly. We all get angry at times, but
we should learn to control our tempers. It's better to stay
cool and talk things out reasonably. Now it's not always
easy, but it's usually the best way to solve any problem.
Until next time, bye."
- "The Remedy"
"Today Man-At-Arms and He-Man showed us the true meaning
of friendship. When Rohad was sick Man-At-Arms rushed to
his side and did everything in his power to help. And He-Man
risked his life to assist Man-At-Arms. How would you like
to have a friend who will be there to take care of you when
you're sick? Who will see you through bad times as well
as good? Well most of you have. They're your two best friends;
your mother and your father."
- "The Heart of A Giant"
"Today I learned something about judging other people
by the way they look. Just because Cambro looked different,
I was frightened of him and I thought he was some kind of
monster. But he turned out to be kind and gentle and smart.
I hope you'll try to remember not to judge people by the
way they look, and not to make fun of them if they look
different. People deserve to be judged on their words and
especially on their actions. From now on, I'm going to give
them a chance. I hope you will too, bye!"
- The Cat and the Spider
- Adam and Katrina Katrina: "In today's story I made
the mistake of not trusting the people of Eternia just because
they were different." Adam: "'You can't judge a book by
it's cover," means you can't tell from the outside
what something is like on the inside. And that goes for
books as well as people. Not liking a person because he
or she is a different race or religion is wrong. People
should be judged for themselves, right Katrina?" Katrina: "Right you are Adam, right
you are." Adam/Katrina: "So long!"
- The Energy Beast
- Teela and Orko Teela: "In today's story Orko found
out how important it is to have patience." Orko: "I couldn't wait to go into
the ancient temple. But I ended up causing a lot of trouble
for me and everyone else." Teela: "I'm happy you learned your
lesson. Oh, by the way, I guess I'll be seeing you at the
big parade tomorrow." Orko: "Tomorrow? I've got to wait
until then? Oh, why can't we have the parade today?!" Teela: "Orko." Orko: "Okay. I'll be patient, but
it won't be easy." Teela: "See you next time." Orko: "Hope it's soon!"
- Day of the Machines
"In today's story my father accepted the responsibility
for something which wasn't his fault. And he didn't stand
around trying to blame someone else. Instead, he did something
about making things right, and he succeeded, with a little
help from He-Man. Now, we all make mistakes, and when we
do, we shouldn't be afraid to admit them. And when they
aren't our fault, well, don't waste precious time putting
the blame elsewhere. Just do what you can to make things
right. See you all soon."
- The Gamesman
- He-Man and Teela He-Man: "Today we met Lord Todd who
appeared to be a generous and good person, and Moak who
looked like a monster." Teela: "But then we found out that
it was Todd who was the monster, and Moak who was kind and
good." He-Man: "You learned that real goodness
comes from the inside." Teela: "Remember not to judge people
simply by the way they look. It's what they're really like
inside that counts." He-Man/Teela: "Bye for now."
- Fisto's Forest
"You all saw how Fisto changed from a bad guy who nobody
liked into a real hero. At first he caused nothing but trouble.
In today's episode Fisto learned that if you treat a person
with respect and courtesy, chances are that's the way they'll
treat you in return. If you mistreat somebody, you'll only
earn their disrespect. Remember the golden rule; do unto
others and you would have them do unto you. So long until
- The Rarest Gift of All
"Boy, the party is sure lots of fun, and just think,
I could've missed out on it by running away. Sure I was
feeling sorry for myself, but running away doesn't solve
anything. Everyone has problems now and then, and sometimes
they seem pretty big. But every time you have a problem
you just can't keep running away. You've got to try and
solve it. And how do you do that? Well a good way is to
ask someone for help. Help! Adam! Man-At-Arms! Cringer!
- The Great Books Mystery
- Teela and Orko Teela: "You sure have your hands full." Orko: "Well, I have lots of reading
to catch up on." Teela: "Good for you Orko. You know
when you open up a book, you're really opening a door to
a wonderful world of entertainment and information." Orko: "That's for sure. I'm finding
out all about science and dragons and sports, but mostly
bodybuilding." Teela: You have a book on bodybuilding?" Orko: "No, but carrying all these
books sure builds my body!" Teela: "Oh, Orko."
- Origin of the Sorceress *
"Today we learned about the importance of taking the
responsibility to care about our fellow man. If you have
a friend who needs help, who's having a difficult time,
do whatever you can to help them out. Because as you saw
in today's episode, no matter how big the problem, one person
or one living creature can make a big difference. See you
- Island of Fear
- Teela and Adam Teela: "I sure enjoy jogging along
this meadow." Adam: "So do I. It's too bad everyplace
in Eternia can't stay as natural and untouched as this place
is." Teela: "You're right. But progress
does force changes. And sometimes those changes mean we
have to take down trees in order to put up buildings." Adam: "That's why it's important to
set aside some places to remain natural. Where children
can play and where we can all enjoy the wonders of nature."
- To Save Skeletor
"Hi there. In today's story we had a tough job to do
and the only way we could do it was to get some help and
work together. Now there are always jobs and problems that
are too tough to handle alone, and when that happens, you
should never be ashamed to admit you need help. Likewise,
if someone asks you for help, give them a hand. Yours may
not be as big as mine, but it'll still be appreciated. And
if I can ever give you a hand, just let me know."
- The Ice Age Cometh
- Adam, Philip and Teela Adam: "Well, how are things going
at the Weather Station Philip?" Philip: "Well it's lots of work and
plenty of responsibility. You know, part of growing up is
learning how to be a responsible person." Teela: "That's for sure. Whether a
job is big or small, it's nice to know that you're the kind
of person people can depend upon to get the job done." Adam: "That's right Teela. Being responsible,
means you can be depended upon. And that's a big step towards
becoming a winner."
- Trouble in Trolla
- Orko and Man-At-Arms Orko: "Hi! In our tale today Snoob
learned a very important lesson. He found out that when
young people and older people work together, they can accomplish
a great deal. You see, older people have experience that
can help young people if they're willing to listen. And
that's why you should always respect older people and pay
attention to the advice they give you." Man-At-Arms: "Well Orko, for once
you're right." Orko: "Aren't I always?" Man-At-Arms: "Until later."
- Betrayal of Stratos
- He-Man and Orko He-Man: "Today Stratos of Avion learned
the true value of forgiveness. When someone does something
we don't like it can be hard to forgive. It's at times like
these that we must remember everyone does a second chance.
We all make mistakes. And when we do it's nice to have a
friend who will understand and give us another chance. Right
my friend?" Orko: "Right!" He-Man: "See you next time."
- Disappearing Dragons
"In today's story we met some people who had a strange
idea of fun. To amuse themselves the Darmi wanted to make
the dragons fight each other. Fortunately they didn't succeed.
There are no dragons in your world, but there are animals.
And hurting or teasing an animal is no way to have fun.
Treat your animals with kindness, you'll find that's a lot
more fun, for you and for the animal. Until later."
- The Shadow of Skeletor
- Man-E-Faces and Ram Man Man-E-Faces: "Today you saw what happened
when Ram Man and I got into an argument. It almost ruined
our friendship." Ram Man: "I'm sure happy we're pals
again." Man-E-Faces: "When people lost their
temper, they often say things they later regret. So if you
get angry, be careful you don't say something you really
don't mean. Something you'll be sorry about later." Ram Man: "I'm glad we made up, because
now we're better friends than ever. Right Man-E?" Man-E-Faces: "Right, Rammy!"
- The Arena
"Today we saw a terrible conflict between two opposing
forces, and in the end the battle was not won by some powerful
weapon; it was won by a single act of compassion. Compassion
means caring for others, wanting to help them. Fighting
is often not the way to settle a problem. It may prove who
is stronger, but it doesn't prove who is right. And remember
sometimes it takes more courage not to fight. See you soon."
- Attack from Below
- Teela and Orko Teela: "In our story today, we can
all learn a valuable lesson. Subternias and his underground
people hated all those who lived aboveground, because of
the actions of a few." Orko: "Well, that's like throwing
away a barrel of good apples just because one happens to
be bad." Teela: "Right. Everyday we meet all
kinds of people." Orko: "Most will be nice, some may
be bad." Teela: "But it's unfair to judge an
entire group, by the actions of just a few." Orko: "Right! Till later, so long!"
- Into the Abyss
- Man-At-Arms and He-Man Man-At-Arms: "Teela learned two extremely
important lessons today." He-Man: "She learned it's just as
important to play as it is to study and work." Man-At-Arms: "But it's also important
to take the time to learn the rules for playing safely." He-Man: "Right, Duncan. Teela wandered
too far away, and when she ran into trouble, there was no
one around to help her or to go for help. So when you play
away from family or friends, make sure someone knows where
you are at all times."
- Fraidy Cat
- He-Man, Orko and Cringer He-Man: "Courage and fear are two
important instincts." Orko: "And we should pay attention
to both." He-Man: "Sometimes being afraid is
just as important as being brave." Cringer: "I guess I was a dumb old
fraidy cat." He-Man: "How's that Cringer?" Cringer: "Because I was afraid of
being afraid." Orko: "I see. Well, how do you feel
now?" Cringer: "Oh, much better. Now I'm
just afraid of being brave." He-Man: "Sometimes you just can't
win. See you all next time."
- The Rainbow Warrior
- Teela and Queen Marlena Teela: "Your majesty, I want to thank
you for coming to our rescue, and for teaching me more about
flying." Queen Marlena: "You're most welcome
Teela. You'd be surprised at what we 'old timers' know.
And we still remember what it's like to be young, and think
you've learned everything." Teela: "Well, not everything. And
speaking of learning, I was wondering if you would teach
me to fly the Rainbow." Queen Marlena: "I'd be glad to. But
only if you teach me to fly the Sky Sled." Teela: "You've got a deal."
- A Trip to Morainia *
"In today's adventure story, Prince Eska made an important
discovery. He found out that a good idea could come from
anyplace, even from his sister. Know something? When you
don't listen, you just might be cheating yourself out of
a good idea. Besides, where does it say that big ideas have
to come from big people? Give others the chance to share
their ideas with you. I promise you'll be glad you did."
- Things That Go Bump in the Night
"Is there something that frightens you? Are you afraid
of water or high places? I used to be afraid of the dark
when I was little. Some fears are good if they make you
more careful. Fear of fire may save you from a burn; fear
of getting hurt may make you think twice before trying something.
So fear, is nothing to be concerned about. As a matter of
fact, it's healthy. So don't worry. Only a fool, fears nothing.
Now I'm afraid it's time to go, bye for now."
- Three on a Dare
"Taking a dare doesn't prove you're brave or smart.
It could prove you're pretty foolish, because most of the
time it'll get you or someone else in trouble. The smartest
thing to do is not to take a dare, and not to worry about
what people will think. If you only do what you think is
right, you'll come out the winner. Don't learn the hard
way, like the children in today's story. Until next time,
- Just a Little Lie
- Teela and Orko Orko: "Boy, am I glad today's adventure's
over." Teela: "Why's that Orko?" Orko: "Because I was having a hard
time keeping track of my lies. Each one led to another and
another and another. It was exhausting." Teela: "Well, that sounds like a pretty
valuable lesson." Orko: "Oh yes it is. I learned that
lying is not only very dangerous to other people, but painful
for me as well. I'll always tell the truth from now on." Teela: "Are you sure." Orko: "Positively." Teela: "Well, we'll all see you soon
again. And that's no lie."
- One for All
"Today's story was about cooperation, working together
to get a job done. Have you ever tried to lift something
heavy? With help from a friend or two, the job becomes easier.
If we offer to help someone with his or her job, that person
might be willing to help us, when we have a tough job to
do. That's how people cooperate, by helping each other
to get things done. Why a job that's dull and boring can
be fun with a friends help. Give it a try. Until next time,
- Jacob and the Widgets
"Because the Widgets helped Jacob, he chose to stand
beside them when they were in danger. Afterwards he planned
to leave them because he was so used to living alone. Only
after he discovered that he was really needed by the Widgets
did Jacob agree to stay and be there mayor. It's important
to let those around us know that we love and need them.
Have you hugged your parents today?"
- The Littlest Giant
- Squinch and Orko Squinch: "In today's story, He-Man
said what is important is what you're like inside. It's
not really important whether you're big or small or tall
or short or fat or skinny. In other words, what's important
is being the best person you can be. You know something,
I'll bet there are a lot of people out there right now,
who'd like to be just like you." Orko: "Good for you Squinch, you said
- Trouble's Middle Name
"People have the urge once in a while to play a joke
on someone. But as Prankser learned today, jokes have a
way of getting out of hand. When that happens, it can backfire,
and then the joke isn't funny. It might be dangerous. And
it might hurt someone. Maybe you. So next time you think
about pulling a joke on someone, no matter how safe you
think it is, think twice about it. Then, don't do it. Bye
- Journey to Stone City *
- Orko and Man-At-Arms Orko: "Today we learned something
about the importance of listening to other people." Man-At-Arms: "Orko." Orko: "Just a sec. Vulcan's big mistake
was listening to Evil-Lyn without asking He-Man for his
side of the story." Man-At-Arms: "Orko." Orko: "Before we blame somebody for
doing something, we should always find them and ask for
his side of the story. That's important, because sometimes
we're wrong about who's to blame." Man-At-Arms: "Orko!" Orko: "Remember listen to what other
people have to say. What is it Man-At-Arms?" Man-At-Arms: "Dinner's ready." Orko: "Oh!"
- A Bird in the Hand
- Teela and Hollywag Teela: "In today's adventure we saw
what happens when we make up our minds about something before
we have the facts. It's called jumping to conclusions. And
anyone who does will usually find that the conclusion is
wrong. That's what happened to Melaktha. If he'd only--Well,
hello Holly! Is there something you want to say?" Hollywag: "Yup! Don't jump to conclusions.
Don't jump to conclusions." Teela: "That's good advice. And if
anyone asks, just say a little bird told you. See you all
- Battlecat *
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "In today's adventure
Orko was warned not to play with certain bottles. Well Orko
didn't listen and he nearly caused a lot of trouble. There
may be containers like this one in your home. This symbol
is a warning of poison." Orko: "Hey, that looks like Skeletor." Man-At-Arms: "And just like Skeletor
it's bad news. It could make you very sick. So if you see
this picture on a bottle or box it means 'I'm dangerous,
don't touch me.'" Orko: "Be a safe person, not a sorry
- The Time Wheel *
"I hoped you enjoyed today's adventure story. Wouldn't
it be wonderful if we did have a real time wheel? We could
turn it back to the Stone Age and meet some real cave people.
Or into the future where we could see some of the wondrous
things yet to come. Well we don't have a magic time wheel,
not yet anyway. But we do have some things just about as
good. They're called books. Reading books can be your time
wheel to just about anytime or place you choose. Why don't
you give them a try? You'll be glad you did."
- Search for the Past
"Well you know what I liked best in today's story?
Well there were three things. The first was when the evil
Enchantress found out you can't do bad things without being
punished for them. The second thing was when King Randor
found his father. But what I liked best of all was Adam
and his grandfather getting together. You know grandfathers
and grandmothers are very special people, and they give
their grandchildren a very special kind of love. So if you're
lucky enough to have a grandmother or a grandfather, or
maybe even both. Well, you're really especially lucky."
- Hunt for He Man
- Drak, He-Man and Cringer Drak: "I shudder to think that I almost
betrayed you He-Man, in favor of Skeletor." He-Man: "Well, but you made the right
decision, that's what counts." Drak: "The thought of all those riches
was awfully tempting. On second thought, I'd rather have
your friendship He-Man, Cringer. In fact, knowing you has
made me the richest boy in the world." Cringer: "And we're much richer for
knowing you. Until later."
- The Greatest Show on Eternia
- Orko and Adam Orko: "I thought this would be a lot
easier. Oops!" Adam: "Well, it looks like you need
some more practice Orko." Orko: "I thought being a juggler in
the circus would be easy." Adam: "If you really want to be a
juggler, or anything else in life, you have to be willing
to work at it. So when you find something that you really
want to do, then do yourself a favor, work at it. Really
work at it. Spend enough time learning the necessary skills,
and I promise you, you'll be surprised at how good you can
really be. See you next time." Orko: "Bye."
- Not so Blind
- Adam, Storyteller and Children Adam: "So children, what did you learn
from the story?" Child 1: "Even though Loos is blind,
he's just like the rest of us." Child 2: "Yeah, and because he learned
to use his other senses, he helped He-Man." Storyteller: "That's right. Just because
a person is blind or handicapped, well it doesn't mean that
they're helpless." Child 3: "Yeah! They have feelings,
and want to do stuff like we do too." Adam: "And who knows? You might learn
as much from them, as they do from you."
- Revenge is Never Sweet
- Teela and Orko Teela: "Today we learned there's no
such thing as getting even. Even if someone does something
to you and you get back at him--" Orko: "And he gets back at you--" Teela: "And you get back at him--" Orko: "And he gets back at you--" Teela: "And you get back again--" Orko: "And he--" Teela: "So you see, it never stops.
No one is really getting even at all. The best thing to
do is talk it over and start fresh. Now, you were going
to say something." Orko: "See you next time!"
- The Good Shall Survive
- He-Man and Orko He-Man: "We learned today that there
are right ways and wrong ways of getting what you want.
If someone has something you want, say a toy you'd like
to play with, or maybe some candy or cake, don't just take
it. That's stealing. And chances are you'll only bring out
the anger in the other person. But if you ask rather than
take, or if it's yours offer to share, you'll get back more
than you give. Like maybe even a new friend. Right Orko?" Orko: (waggling his ears) He-Man: "See you next time."
- The Secret of Grayskull *
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "Sometimes when your
parents punish you, you may think they don't love you. Well
that isn't true. They don't punish to be mean, but to teach
you. They'll hope you remember the punishment and not do
wrong in the future. If I didn't love Orko I wouldn't care
what he did." Orko: "I'm glad Man-At-Arms cares
enough to correct me when I do wrong. How else am I going
to learn? I know he loves me, even if he doesn't say it
all the time." Man-At-Arms: "Yes well, it's time
to go." Orko: "Bye!"
- No Job too Small *
"Being strong and powerful is wonderful. But you know
what? There are some things even more wonderful. Things
like imagination and intelligence. In today's story it wasn't
He-Man's muscle that saved us, it was more Adam's clever
mind and quick thinking. Exercising so you can be as strong
as possible is a good idea. But exercising your mind like
reading books and yes, doing your homework, that's also
a very good idea. Think it over."
- "The Bitter Rose" *
"Today Orko nearly made a terrible mistake by not listening
to that small voice in all of us that tells us right from
wrong, our conscience. When Orko decided to impress Dree
Elle he suspected that he might be doing something wrong.
Whenever you're in doubt about what you should or shouldn't
do, stop for a moment and listen to your conscience. It'll
usually tell you what's right or wrong. But just in case
you're still not sure, talk it over with your family or
someone else who cares about you. See you soon."
- "The Gambler" *
- Adam and Orko Adam: "You know a big part of growing
up is learning to respect other people's property. When
Smudge lost all his money gambling, he gambled with someone
else's property, and that's when things went from bad to
worse. If you want to use something that belongs to someone
else, ask their permission. Well, if you don't, you may
get more than you bargained for. Right, Orko?" Orko: "Right you are."
- "Teela's Triumph" *
"Today we learned that's sometimes our responsibilities
can seem too much to handle. When a job seems bigger than
we are it's easy to be discouraged, to give up, but sometimes
if you try, really try, you can do it. When you come right
down to it, there's only one thing others can expect of
us, and that we can expect of ourselves, to do our best.
See you next time."
- "Orko's New Friend" *
"In our story today Squange learned a valuable lesson.
Squange exaggerated and made up stories, which caused people
a lot of trouble. And later, when he needed people to believe
him, they didn't. You know, Squange made up stories to make
people think that he was important. And what he learned
was, we're all important! Every one of us. Goodbye for now!"
- "The Problem With Power" *
"I want to talk to you today about safety. Accidents
don't just happen to other people, they can happen to you.
But you can do some things to help prevent accidents from
happening. Using a safety belt when riding in a car can
save your life, or prevent you from being seriously hurt.
Now I know you've been told to never play with matches,
because if you do you're playing with fire. And fire can
burn your toys, your home, your family, you. So use your
common sense and think about what you're doing. It's better
to be safe, than sorry."
- "Double Trouble" *
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "You know, sometimes
we think of people as being all good or all bad, but we
shouldn't. Very few people are all bad. It may be hard to
find, but if you look for it chances are you'll find some
good in almost everyone." Orko: "And the best way to start is
to never judge anyone by the way they look, but rather by
what they do. Actions speak louder than words or appearances.
It's something to reflect on. So long!"
- "The Eternia Flower" *
"Do you know someone who uses drugs the way Jahno used
that flower? Drugs can be dangerous because of the effect
they can have on the mind and body. The price one pays for
the feeling a drug gives can be a loss of control, hurting
someone you love or something much worse. People often get
sick playing with drugs. Some even die. Never take drugs
from other people, even if a close friend says it's all
right, check with someone who really loves you. See you
- "Happy Birthday Roboto" *
"It's too bad, but sometimes people think that doing
the right thing is just too much trouble. When a friend
is in trouble there isn't time to wonder whether you should
or shouldn't help, you just do it. And sometimes the one
you help will turn around and help you. Remember every time
you help someone the good comes back to you, sometimes in
ways you don't even know about, but it does. Another thing,
there's nothing in the world quite like the feeling that
comes from knowing you've done something good for someone
else. Well, see you next time."
- "Battle of the Dragons" *
"Today I want to talk to you about winning and losing.
When Granamyr had his fiery tug-of-war with another dragon
he won fair and square, and stopped. He let go. Because
as soon as you take advantage of being a winner, you've
really lost. Remember it's important to be a good loser,
but sometimes it's just as important to know how to be a
good winner. Winning is no excuse for bad manners. See you
- "Time Doesn't Fly" *
"Have you ever wondered what it would be like if time
did stand still? The flowers and the plants would never
develop to their full potential. And neither would you.
Time is important to everyone, plants, animals and you.
As you grow you learn, and as you learn you change and develop.
And that development is the thing that determines your future.
So time is our friend. If we use our time wisely, we'll
enjoy all the good things that life has to offer."
- "Here, There, Skeletors Everywhere" *
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "Today we discovered
that getting what you want isn't always a good thing. When
we like something, particularly something sweet, it's easy
to want more and more. But nearly every time if you have
too much of something, no matter how much you want it, you'll
find that it disagrees with you. So next time you see some
candy, remember you can have too much of a good thing." Orko: "Except me of course. Right
Man-At-Arms?" Man-At-Arms: "We'll talk about it
later. See you next time."
- "Beauty and the Beast" *
- Teela, Orko, Prince Morrogor and He-Man Teela: "Well Orko, did you learn a
lesson?" Orko: "I sure did. That sometimes
fairytales can come true." Prince Morrogor: "My lesson was more
difficult. With Teela's help I learned to look past my ugliness,
because the truth is that no matter how you look, you're
only as ugly or as beautiful as the way you act." He-Man: "A hard lesson for sure, but
you learned it well."
- "Orko's Return" *
"Hi Kids. I want to talk to you for a moment about
today's show. You saw me playing tricks on my enemies, all
sorts of tricks, and it was pretty funny. But sometimes,
people try to play tricks on each other for fun. Well, it
isn't. Lots of times a trick can scare our friends or even
hurt them. So, play it safe and leave the tricks to the
pros like me."
- "Visitors From Earth" *
- Queen Marlena
"Today's story was make-believe. You know that Earth
was never really in any danger. But you can still learn
something very important from today's adventure. Andrea
and Colonel Blaze would never have accomplished their mission,
if He-Man and his friends had not joined together to help
them. Helping others is a wonderful thing. And when you
do, you're really also helping yourself. You see for one
thing it makes you feel good. Who knows? The next time,
you may be the one who needs the help."
- "Monster on the Mountain" *
- Teela and Orko Teela: "It's human nature to exaggerate." Miller Perkins: "And then He-Man put
across a bridge to span the canyon. Why, it must've been
two hundred feet, easy." Jed Hanson: "Two hundred? Why that
bridge was four hundred feet, if it was an inch." Teela: "I guess as long as there are
people, some of them will exaggerate, and others will believe
them and spread rumors. It makes it hard to tell what is
true and what is false." Orko: "The important thing is to use
our common sense and not to believe everything we hear." Teela: "That's right. So, until next
time." Orko: "Bye!"
- "The Magic Falls" *
- Man-At-Arms and Orko Man-At-Arms: "On their way to the
Magic Falls Adam and Orko discovered not only the secret
of the Gatekeeper, but an important lesson as well. In the
Gatekeeper's cavern Adam was too far away to grab his sword,
and Orko without his magic wasn't strong enough to pry it
loose. But when they worked together they combined their
strength and got the job done. You don't have to be the
biggest or the strongest when you help one another." Orko: "Cooperation. It's almost as
good as magic." Man-At-Arms: "Sometimes, better."
- "Search for a Son" *
"You may remember from our story how my foot slipped
while I was climbing up the steep rocks. And when Philip
looked over his shoulder while running from the Jolik he
fell into a pit of Lumas. So when you're climbing, walking
or running, you should always be extra careful. Look where
you're going so you don't slip and hurt yourself. Remember,
it's not how fast you get there; it's getting there safely
that counts. See you next time."
- "Mistaken Identity" *
- Adam and Cringer Adam: "Today Tharan learned a valuable
lesson about the difference between pretending and lying.
Everyone likes to pretend, but when you start pretending
like Tharan did, that's lying. And sooner or later lies
have a way of catching up with you. Eventually no one will
believe you, even though you're telling the truth. So remember
tell the truth and be yourself." Cringer: "Oh good, does that mean
I don't have to be Battlecat anymore." Adam: "No Cringe, sorry. See you next
- "The Toy Maker" *
- King Randor and Orko King Randor: "We all like to give
and receive presents. But if a stranger tries to give you
gifts, say 'no thanks,' and tell your parents." Orko: "Gifts and toys from strangers
are nothing to play around with." King Randor: "You've learned an important
lesson Orko." Orko: "There's one more thing I won't
forget." King Randor: "What's that Orko?" Orko: "Next time someone asks me to
keep a secret from He-Man and my friends. I'll know something's
wrong." King Randor: "You're right. Friends
don't have to keep secrets from each other. Until next time."
- "Bargain With Evil" *
"In today's adventure story Arvella was so anxious
to help her father that she didn't care how she went about
it. But she found out that doing something wrong really
doesn't help solve anything. You know from time to time
we all have problems, but the way we try to solve them can
make the difference between getting rid of them, or making
them even bigger. I hope you'll remember today's story,
so that the next time something goes wrong for you, you'll
work out the problem the right way; the honest way. Bye
- "Capture the Comet Keeper" *
"Some people think the only way to solve a difference
is to fight. Skeletor for example, his answer to every problem
is fight. He doesn't care who's right or wrong. He thinks
that might makes right. Well it doesn't. He-Man knows that,
even with all his power, he always tries to avoid fighting.
Fighting doesn't solve problems. Fighting only makes more
problems. See you soon."
- "The Ancient Mirror of Avathar" *
"Have you ever had a job to do you thought was boring
and unimportant. We all have. Opi did. But no job is unimportant.
Opi learned that if he'd done the little jobs his father
gave him, things would not have gone wrong. So remember,
any job worth doing is worth doing well. No matter how dull
it may seem at the time. Bye for now."
- "The Games" *
"Today we learned about the value of trying, even when
the odds are against you. Sometimes when people around us
aren't playing by the rules or the job seems too big, it's
easy to become discouraged. That's when you really have
to stick with it and keep trying, because that's how winners
are born. So whether you're playing a game or doing your
schoolwork, no matter how far behind you think you are,
don't give up. Remember you can't win if you don't try.
See you next time."
- "To Save the Creatures" *
- Orko, Teela, He-Man and Ricky Orko: "Well from now on I'll be happy
to look at the eledons and garks from outside the sanctuary." Teela: "It was just Skeletor's meddling
that made those creatures angry." He-Man: "And fortunately Ricky had
a solution that helped him learn a lesson." Ricky: "Anything that's really worth
doing takes a lot of hard work and study." Teela: "Maybe if you care about what
you're doing. The work won't seem quite so hard." Ricky: "Well, I guess I had to grow
up a little before I understood that." He-Man: "Well, growing up isn't easy
Ricky. Not for anyone."
- "The Cold Zone" *
"Today we learned the importance of making the right
decision. When Kobra Khan lied about He-Man, King Pythos
believed him at first because Kobra Khan was one of his
people. But later he learned that trusting Kobra Khan was
a big mistake. So when you have to make a decision about
something, don't just jump at the first or the easiest answer,
think it through. Look at both sides and then decide. That
way whatever decisions you make will have a better chance
of being the correct ones. See you next time."
