As He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was developed into a series, the staff writers at Filmation came up with a wealth of proposed story premises. Numerous episodes were never developed beyond the early stages. Showcased below is one of those abandoned episodes, alongside a title card that I have created to show what might have been. Please note that in some of these synopses Orko is still referred to as Gorpo, Evil-Lyn as Desira, and the Evil Warriors as the Masters of the Universe. The Sorceress does not appear to have been fully developed at this point either; with many references instead to the Spirit of Grayskull. Also, Stratos is a villain; much like he was in the early Mattel material. All of the original spellings (Tee-La, Beastman, etc.) are also retained for authenticity.
The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe features many more abandoned episodes!
Skeletor decoys He-Man and Man-At-Arms to a distant universe to stop a cataclysmic explosion. Meanwhile, his forces descend upon Eternia. Only Gorpo and Cringer escape. These two, who do not get along, must join forces and work together through a perilous journey through the cosmos to summon He-Man back to Eternia before Skeletor seizes Grayskull's powers.
* Legally I should say that Robby London did NOT write this episode. This is merely an example of how the episode title card might have looked.
