It’s a stunning coincidence that yet again, on this day of the year, my meticulous research into all things He-Man and She-Ra has unearthed yet another clutch of episodes that were planned and yet never made. For your reading pleasure, I am making these episode summaries available now, for the first time ever.
Madame Razz discovers that her name is similar to that of a song from the Chicago musical, and engages on a surprisingly successful quest to become a Broadway star. However, when she discovers that Hordak is her co-star, she finds it hard to put aside her personal differences with him in the interests of “the show must go on”…
Princess of Power
Glimmer demands to know on what basis She-Ra calls herself Princess of Power, pointing out that Adora is the princess, not She-Ra. She-Ra must persuade Glimmer that we are all princesses, in our own special way. Glimmer is pretty easily persuaded on this one.
A Tenner for Mantenna
Bow bumps into Mantenna down at Wetherspoons on a Friday night, and the two of them bond over a shared liking for cheap drinks in atmosphereless pubs. But when Bow wakes up with a raging hangover on Saturday morning, he discovers that he has somehow got himself into a situation where he owes Mantenna £10. Can he pay back the loan before Mantenna’s notoriously steep interest rates kick in?
Modulok invents a body swap device, intending to use it to swap bodies with Glimmer and learn the secrets of the Rebellion. Unfortunately, he accidentally uses it to swap Bow into She-Ra’s body, with the result that “She-Ra” disappears into her tent for several days with a video camera, a full length mirror and a can of whipped cream. Meanwhile, no one believes “Bow” when he claims to be She-Ra, until he proves his identity by not doing anything stupid or seedy for nearly 20 minutes.
The Greatest Show on Etheria
In the sequel that literally no one wanted, Krackers the Clown and his infernal team arrive on Etheria to set up their beastly circus, but are whisked away into the Fright Zone dungeons immediately on arrival. No one does anything about it, and the episode ends with a disturbing “40 years later…” segment in which a bowed and broken Krackers staggers out of his lengthy imprisonment only to collapse under an indifferent grey Etherian sky.
Once again, I feel obliged to point out that this is all an April Fools’ Day joke. A very funny joke. I should also comment that I’m sorry about the appalling photoshopping. There’s only so much time I’m willing to put into this.
