Orko's refreshingly original spell!

One of my favorite Orko spells occurs in the season two episode "Orko's Return." Not a particularly classic episode, but best remembered for the comical antics of Beast Man, Trap Jaw and their captive Orko. We are so used to Orko's spells conforming to a mantra of sorts, "Wand of glass, clean my room. Sweeping through, like a broom." However in this episode writer J. Larry Carroll scripts a very odd yet very refreshing spell that makes little sense, but entertains nonetheless.

For your listening pleasure, Orko's refreshingly original spell!
(If you're brave enough, try and figure out what the little Trollan's actually saying and comment - I'll post the actual script dialogue tomorrow!)

You'd think with a spell like that, it would work to Orko's advantage, but unfortunately, it backfires because of that darn crystal that Beast-Man and Trap-Jaw stole from Evil-Lyn!

Considering how Orko's magic worked on Eternia, it seemed to me that the more creative his dialogue for casting a spell was, the better the chance of the spell working properly!

This particular magic spell contains some of the most inventive gibberish I've ever heard! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Definitely one of most original spells from the little Trollan. There should have been a lot more of these-sorts of spells from the writers.
I have the episode recorded from a Finnish tv-channel back in the day and I'll have to check if the tv-station's translator tried giving any subtitles for this spell. That same translation-person did try and write down the real name of a certain trollan from "Trouble's Middle Name" ;)
