As many of you will know, in 2010 I published The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. At 300+ pages the book features 700+ pieces of trivia, 460+ deleted scenes, 360+ examples of animation reuse, 380+ quotes, 50+ abandoned episodes, and a LOT more! It is the book that NO fan of the Filmation series can live without! BUY IT NOW!
As an incentive, here is my brief review and rating (as they appear in the book) for "Disappearing Act"...
The biggest problem about this episode is that it seems to be confused as to what story it wishes to tell. Numerous storylines suddenly pop up the moment Prince Adam's Sword of Power is sent to Eternia's past. We have what appears to be the beginning of an identity crisis story, alongside a kidnap, a time travel trip, a robot He-Man decoy, and a rescue attempt; not forgetting Skeletor's invisibility helmet, which in itself could be the basis for an entire episode. The script goes back and fourth between all these different facets, and while they are entertaining individually, together in one episode they present a confusing story with little personality. 4/10
