Birthday Blog #5 - Gateway to Kyrtis?

"The Mines of Mondor" from She-Ra's season one is full of new backgrounds, locations and situations. One of the immediate oddities occurs when the heroes prepare to leave for the planet Kyrtis where the mines are located. Queen Angella stands alongside the heroes about to make the journey and tells them that the gateway will lead them to their destination. This seems odd as we rarely see dimensional travel on the She-Ra series, and we are confused by the sudden appearance of this ancient piece of architecture that can apparently bridge dimensions...

Aside from this episode, I think the only other occasions we see dimensional portals in the She-Ra series is whenever there is a He-Man crossover episode. :)

Also, planet Kyrtis looks more like a brand new location on Etheria we've never seen before, rather than another planet, when we do see it!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

First of all, Happy Birthday James!

And secondly, Congratulations for owning this wonderful painted background by Filmation!!

Thank you for showcasing this. The appearance of a "dimensional gate" is something I wasn't expecting, but rolled with it when viewing the episode.
