Adam, Cringer, Man-At-Arms, and Orko are in the forest searching for Sulkweed. The group splits up, and Orko sees a giant man in the lightning. He runs into a tree and falls unconscious. After the storm passes, the giant enters and drops off Orko and a bag of Sulkweed. Meanwhile, a sideshow owner watches the action from above in his flying spaceship. His goal is to capture the giant for his sideshow. He succeeds and captures Orko in the process. The sideshow master leaves, but not before sending Scorpio after the heroes, which is defeated by He-Man.

Orko convinces the giant Cambro to speak. Orko slides between the cage bars and frees Cambro too. Orko successfully contacts Man-At-Arms and tells him that the sideshow master is headed to Avion. He-Man rescues Stratos and the leader of Avion helps him get into the ship, where he releases the imprisoned sideshow animals. They prepare to attack the sideshow master, who proves to be a coward. Cambro stops his friends from attacking, warning them that they should not spoil their freedom with hate. When Man-At-Arms learns of Cambro's intelligence, he asks the giant to become his lab assistant.

Sir Auros

Something that really bothered me about this episode was that two (or three depending on how you look at it) characters from the episode "Orko's Missing Magic" show up as dumb, mute creatures. Zolt (four arms and black sunglasses) and Tick Tock (two heads) are clearly seen in the episode, and not only do Orko and He-Man (who met them before) ignore them, but they don't even talk. The weirdest thing was that they were treated by the dialogue as if they were just dumb animals. This kind of exemplifies how low budget Filmation shows could be.


Another of the creatures was Gorgon from "The Defection," who is also treated here as if he was an animal.
