Aside from being one of the best episodes of the series, The New Adventures of He-Man episode "Crack in the World" also has a connection to the original Filmation series.

For those wondering, he wrote "The Gamesman", "Island of Fear", "Hunt for He Man", and "The Gambler" with Larry DiTillio. Maybe more former Filmation writers should have worked on the series?
