The Horn of Evil has been taken from Trolla by Clawful and Trap Jaw. On Eternia at the City of Colmay Adam, Cringer and Man-At-Arms are waiting to destroy a meteor shower. One meteor escapes their firepower, so He-Man and Battle Cat save the city. Orko is the only one at the Royal Palace when Dree Elle and Yuckers appear in the pyramid. At Castle Grayskull Clawful and Trap Jaw use the Horn of Evil. The Sorceress appears but is overcome by the power of the horn.

Orko arrives and takes the Horn of Evil from the villains. Orko and Yuckers are captured, but Dree Elle escapes and informs Adam, Cringer and Teela. They arrive to help Orko and Yuckers. He-Man shows up shortly after, with Yuckers accidentally activating the Horn of Evil. Dree Elle finds a song behind the skull on the horn. Orko and Dree Elle unite their voices and sing the song.

All of the evil magic disappears and the Evergreen Forest is restored. Back at the Royal Palace, King Randor thanks Orko for his bravery, and Yuckers learns his lesson.

...I am man enough to admit to actually loving this episode in my youth.I rented the VHS of this episode and "Game Plan"(Volume XV) all of the time when I was young and VHSs and video stores were still a thing. In hindsight, my love for this episode was because of the debut of Clawful, who not only had an awesome voice to my young ears, he acted well in a leadership role (basically, bullying Trap Jaw, not unlike how Skeletor would bully Beastman) but his Filmation persona looked absolutely nothing like his action figure alter ego.That being said, I'm older and a bit wiser now. The "Horn of Evil" may have looked like a sinister plot device when I was about three but...yeah, it totally ACCOMMODATED the Trollans by literally handing them the song that would defeat the treachery that it caused (Understandable; Orko's singing is cringeworthy). Oh yeah; and when I was a toddler, I could not stand the character of Yukkers.
