Happy Birthday He-Man #13 - Edwina and Gorpo?

In the season one He-Man episode "Creatures From The Tar Swamp" Lady Edwina comically calls Orko "Gorpo" in one of her name-forgetting moments. Of course Gorpo was Orko's original name in the Series Bible, a name that was changed at the eleventh hour of production...

It's funny but last time I watched this episode that exact same thing came to my mind, that: "Wasn't Gorpo the name that was originally to be used for Orko?"

If I remember correctly, this was one of the Fun Facts to this episode, from the Season 1 DVD set ... I get a kick out of Lady Edwina's selfish line for this scene:
"I don't care! I want out!" :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Lady Edwina is one of my favorite guest characters! I loved seeing her juxtaposed against King Randor and Queen Marlena!

In Brazil, Orko was always called "Gorpo". In one episode where they make a birthday cake with the words "Happy Bithday Orko", the brazilian voice actor says: "'Happy Bithday Gorpo'! Too bad Chef Allan got his name wrong!"
