Common Sense!

"Temple of The Sun" is a great episode from He-Man's season one, and really proves the strength of the regular cast. However, it is really Cringer's episode to shine, and shine he does! After Prince Adam transforms into He-Man the cowardly cat stubbornly refuses to become his danger-loving counterpart. This scene is immediately striking because we expect Cringer's comment to be met by a blast from the Sword of Power as we have seen on numerous occasions. Instead, we get Cringer using his reason and discontentment to justify not being transformed. When Cringer believes that he can provide the "common sense" that Battle Cat cannot, we have to laugh! This scene is instantly a classic moment in the series, as it starts out so ordinarily and yet ends so atypically!

For your listening pleasure, Cringer's rant!

I actually find it amazing that a heor's sidekick would even be allowed to not cooperate.

Both Cringer's expression and dialogue is a hoot, in this scene!

I am also fascinated by the fact that He-Man's sword suddenly stops bursting with power just as Cringer begins to argue with He-Man and He-Man answers! What does He-Man do to get the power in his sword to cease?! I get a kick out of how the Law of Physics works on Eternia, sometimes! :)

Also, Man-At-Arms' firm comment about not hestitating to leave for the mission, at the end of the scene, is great ... He sounds ever so impatient with both He-Man and Cringer and their "debate!"

Good job, James! Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless!

Yep that scene is fantastic. I am sure Man at Arms says something like: "if you two are finished...." that was great as well. One of the best moments I have seen so far.

When I first saw this on the DVDs I busted out laughing and had to rewind to watch it again. Cringer is so cute and funny... I'd forgotten about that.

I love the scene. It's a great moment for Cringer to reason his way out of becoming Battle Cat but still joining on the adventure.

I also like seeing He-Man surrounded by the sfx when Cringer finally says that he accepts becoming Battle Cat. :)
