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 "The Return of Orko's Uncle"...
The return of Orko's uncle Montork is sadly nowhere near as good as his debut in "Orko's Favorite Uncle". This episode starts off with a lot of promise with new Trollan villains Azrog and Spydra, both of whom are striking in their design. Sadly, aside from an average script which tries to repeat the events of Montork's debut appearance by reversing the situation and having Orko evil, the animation and visuals in this episode border on the atrocious. The cartoony elements that are peppered throughout the episode fall flat because of the continued reliance on Filmation's stock system. While the script does get stronger during the climax of the episode, by this point, it is hard to remain interested. 5/10
