Beast Man and Trap Jaw kidnap Orko to be their slave, using a magic stone amulet that they stole from Evil-Lyn, who had taken it from the rightful owners. They intend to use the amulet to gain control of the palace, using Orko as a hostage-turned-slave. The amulet refuses to let Orko use his magic for anything but exactly what they tell him to. Which means he can't just poof out of there. While He-Man tries to make his rescue, Orko busies himself showing Trap Jaw and Beast Man why this was not a very good idea. Orko tells viewers to leave potentially dangerous practical jokes to the pros, like him.

Unfortunately, Mark is not so lucky. Their ship has landed near Snake Mountain and is taken prisoner by Skeletor, who insists on using the special missile that they have for blowing open Castle Grayskull. Upon extracting it, he damages the launch mechanisms. Mark tries to repair what he can, when He-Man and Andrea arrive. That missile is very important, before they got sucked into the vortex, the two had been on a mission to destroy a giant meteor that was on a collision course with Earth. They must hurry and retrieve the missile and complete their mission if Earth is to be saved. But, what of the damaged launching mechanisms? There is no time to fix them, and the missile is set to go off soon. Queen Marlena tells viewers helping others helps themselves, by making them feel good.

There is said to be an evil monster called the Tingler who lives in the mountains above a settlers village from Eternia. Most think it is just a story or a superstition, but when the villagers spot the Tingler near the village well, King Randor can no longer ignore their insistence that the Tingler is not only real but that they are in danger of being his victims. Randor still isn't convinced, but he sends Teela and Prince Adam to go along and check things out. Teela and Orko tell viewers not to exaggerate in anecdotes, as it can lead to wildly inaccurate gossip and difficulty in discerning truth.

Skeletor has another plan to cause trouble, this time involving Kobra Khan and Evil-Lyn. The only part Evil-Lyn is supposed to play is to put a glamour over Kobra Khan to make him look like an ordinary Eternian citizen, whom the palace is opened up to today in order for King Randor to hear their grievances, concerns, or requests on how things are going in the kingdom. To make sure that Orko doesn't interfere, Skeletor steals his magic! When Prince Adam finds out about this, they go to the palace to speak to Man-at-Arms. Unfortunately, there is nothing he can do. So, with a time limit set at getting back in time for the event to start, Orko and Prince Adam head out to a magic waterfall that Orko has heard of that is supposed to give him his magic back.

It is revealed that his son was recovered from the storm winds by the evil Count Marzo, who had held him captive ever since and offers his return in exchange for the throne of Eternia.

Deranged human scientist called Galen Nycroft, imprisoned in the Royal dungeons for attempting to use his science to control all of Eternia with a mind ray. He summons a bat-like aid to his side with a component needed to teleport his final invention to the prison cell. Teleporting the large machine to the cell, he steps inside, and an explosion comes from within. He steps out in the mutated form of Modulok, and uses his greatly bolstered strength to break free from the prison cell. He contacts Skeletor and offers him his services, but Skeletor rejects him describing him as a "wimp scientist" and vows to only accept Modulok into his evil crew once he has proven himself. Modulok sets out to prove himself by capturing He-Man. He fails in his scheme, as he is deceived into capturing a teenage boy who is trying to impress his girlfriend by pretending to be He-Man's secret identity.

Orko is at first reluctant, but finally agrees. The toys are fun at first, but when the lights are out and Man-At-Arms is making his final rounds in the lab, they come to life and kidnap him, taking him to Snake Mountain. King Randor and Orko tell viewers not to take gifts from strangers, or keep any secrets they ask you to keep from parents.

Broadcast order

There is a lot of confusion over the exact order of the episodes of the series. The production codes allocated appear to indicate nothing more than the formal clearance of an episode's script. Often, this order is directly contradicted on screen. For example, "The Return of Orko's Uncle" (MU023) has an earlier production code than the introduction of "Orko's Favourite Uncle" (MU027).
