Adam No More" from He-Man's season one contains
possibly one of the most amusing map descriptions in the
series. The script dictated that a map was to be shown,
accompanied by King Randor asking what the first stop on
their journey would be. The map was only on screen for about
two seconds, but looking at the map we can find a few interesting
locations on Eternia.
map may look purely innocent, but it does have a few jokes
placed on it, some intentional, and some not.
the top of the map we have the oddly named "Evil Area,"
and in keeping with the same silly style of naming areas,
directly at the bottom we have "Bad Mountains."
These are very child-like descriptions, yet amusing because
of their simplicity. "Drisdos
City" is their destination, and "Emerald City"
appears to be on the map to give it some credibility.
two most interesting locations on the map are "This
Forest," which is such an obvious, simple and yet clever
joke, and "Herschensohn Lake," which is a tribute
to the late Wes Herschensohn, a member of the Filmation
staff who was very influential, but passed away in the later
years of production.
all of the other maps that appeared in He-Man and
She-Ra were a little more reliable than this one!
