Cringer begins to fall for one of the sideshow stars, Pretty Kitty. That night Pretty Kitty lures Cringer away from his room and he follows her right into Beast Man's trap. Learning that Cringer is a prisoner of Skeletor He-Man rushes to Snake Mountain. Teela follows He-Man, thinking that it is Adam who has gone to rescue Cringer. Teela once again meets the Shadow Beast just as it attacks He-Man, but once again she manages to calm it down. He-Man finds Cringer in a cage perched on a ledge. Cringer bravely saves He-Man from walking into a trap. Cringer is transformed into Battle Cat and the two enter Snake Mountain. Teela is captured by falling into the very trap set for He-Man. After a brief battle with Evil-Lyn and Beast Man, He-Man and Battle Cat confront Skeletor. His trick of mirroring himself is foiled when Orko's pepper strikes the floor and causes Skeletor to sneeze, shattering the illusion. They save Teela and head back home.
