"The Toy Maker" from He-Man's season two features an exceptionally eerie location, the Valley of Echoes! It provides us with one of the most underrated scenes in the series when He-Man's fear is revealed; I will save that for another Blog entry. For the time being here is a wonderful panning shot of the Valley of Echoes. I am always a big fan of painted backgrounds that show mountains in the distance as I feel it presents an immense sense of depth and distance. It is a shame that the Valley of Echoes never reappeared in the series. It is worth mentioning that "The Greatest Show on Eternia" many episodes before "The Toy Maker" featured Echo Valley, similar in name, but an entirely different location!
