Trap Jaw's Tongue?

As we all know Trap Jaw, my favorite Evil Warrior, is famed for his steel jaw and razor sharp teeth that can bite through anything. In one of his finest episodes, season one's "Double Edged Sword", Trap Jaw high above the Sands of Time lowers Mer-Man towards the heroes via his Dropper arm attachment. When the cable on the Dropper snaps Trap Jaw's shocked expression reveals something odd thing that we have never seen before, and never see again; a tongue! This was probably just a momentary lapse by the artist of this sequence, or drawn on purpose to add more comedy to the moment.

Heh, I've never thought about Trap Jaw having a tongue before. As we all know, Trap Jaw is THE MAN! ;)

This had to be the most hilarious moment in the episode! Actually, there is another episode where we see Trap-Jaw's tongue ...

The other day, I was watching my Season 1 Volume 1 DVDs and noticed this in the "Song of Celice" episode, right after the He-Man and Battlecat transformation. Evil-Lyn and Trap-Jaw are seen leaving the palace after they captured Celice. Right after Evil-Lyn states, "So far, let's hope we don't run into..." We hear Battlecat roaring, out of shot, followed by both villains in shock. In the background, right before the shot of the villains switches over, a little bit of Trap-Jaw's tongue is exposed! It's not as noticable as the shot in "Double Edged Sword," but it still looks really funny!

Thanks for posting and reading!

Leave it to you to bring out these fun tidbits regarding Trap-Jaw.

I have seen the episode but did not pay enough attention to notice the tongue. I hope it was intentionally added for more humor-effect. :)

Trap Jaw s tongue! I did not expect to see this! It seems to be a joke, especially the funny way that Filmation gave the villains. Excellent contribution!
