What's in the box?!

A small little throwaway scene occurs in the opening few moments of the season one episode "The Huntsman." This scene links two characters that rarely had much to do with one another, King Randor and the Sorceress. Though we do not see them on the screen at the same time during the episode, the show opens up with Prince Adam returning something belonging to the Sorceress that King Randor has borrowed. We ask ourselves as to what it could be? Unfortunately the artists at Filmation give us no clue, and neither does the script. As you can see from the images below all that King Randor apparently borrowed from the Sorceress was a small box...

I don't want to know what King Randor has been doing with the Sorceress' box! They're grown adults, keep it in the bedroom (or the pimpmobile)!

Howdy

James, from memory I cannot think of an episode where Randor and the Sorceress are in a scene together. If there is one could you please show us?

Thanks

Yes, I was wondering about that! Even a magical looking crystal, like the one The Sorceress used in "Origin of the Sorceress" would have been more interesting than a small gray box!

...Or how about a glowing orb like the ones we see in episodes like "Curse of the Spellstone," "The Royal Cousin," and "The Search?" Even something like that would have added some mystery to the scene.

Also, notice how Teela has her hands on her hips, like she is waiting for Adam to hurry up so they can leave! :) She really is hotheaded in this scene and Linda Gary acts out her voice so well.

It's nice that we get to see some images from this rare episode on The Internet at last. Hopefully we can also get some images from another one of my favorite episodes, "The Remedy," real soon! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Now I read this post I realize it's true: I do not remember seeing Randor and Sorceress together. And my intrigue is increased even further by asking: what's in that box ????? I did not remember this scene. I should take a risk on what's inside the box... I guess... something magical used by Randor to increase the power of his left fist!
