Over the hill...

This scene from "The Light of the Crystal" is one of the funniest moments in the She-Ra series. In what should be a standard scene Imp transforms himself into a very small stick so that he can spy on the rebels and not be spotted. Trying to gain a better view Imp loses his balance and we get to see just how funny Filmation animators can make a stick look! In a completely over-the-top yet fitting scene Arkion and Bow rcoil in fear as the small tree falls towards them. Just as we think the scene is going nowhere Bow unexpectedly and quite comically decides to throw the small stick over a nearby hill! Bow puts all the effort into the throw and as the tree leaves his hand the director cuts to a distant shot of the surrounding area, and we see a tiny stick soaring through the air, accompanied by Imp's screaming. The scene is pointless, yet hilarious! Just when we think the scene is over we see Imp back at Elfworld Castle complaining...

I agree. The scene is pointless as far as it goes but I always thought that it was moments like these that actually made the series enjoyable. I like to see the bad guys goofing.

LOL :) The "proud" tone in Bow's voice, as he throws the disguised Imp, is hilarious! Funny how Bow didn't notice that the tree-like formation was blue!

Love the scene featuring Catra ... For once, she lays into Imp without Hordak being around to defend Imp. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
