Elmas and Abram.

At the very beginning of the season one episode "Disappearing Act" we see two men driving an odd vehicle across a rugged terrain when a volcano explodes. First off the vehicle is supposed to be a futuristic tractor, and secondly the two men are farmers named Elmas and Abram. Yes, just another little fact that I wrote for the BCI He-Man and the Masters of the Universe DVDs. To me the terrain they are driving on does not look suitable for crops at all...

This was one of the oddest moments in the He-Man series ... Also shocking is the fact that, after the volcano erupts, in this scene, the lava doesn't flow anywhere near the two gentlemen in their vehicle! You would think that, with a volcano close by, Elmas and Abram would be traveling in an air vehicle, to be on the safe side!

...In this case, I would have chosen a plot device where the lava flow would head for the men, followed by He-Man saving the two by blasting a trench in the ground (Via the Sky-Sled blaster) for the lava to flow down ... The finished product was a little too far-fetched for my liking, but still both amusing and hilarious! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

The tractor looks much like thouse "Wacky Racers" vehicles.

I'm surprised Elmas and Abram never returned as background characters. They would have even fitted well into the Bravestarr world on New Texas.

Thanks for the reveal about these characters.

And I concur; the terrain doesn't look all that suited for their line of work.
Wonder what they were thinking...
