Original Airdate: ?/?/1984
Orko's magic pyramid appears from Trolla and Dree Elle informs Orko that an upstart named Snoob has successfully challenged and succeeded Montork in his role as head of the Academy of Magic. Orko's return brings joy to the unhappily retired Montork, who explains that his magic inexplicably failed to work in the duel. The Crimson Council made Snoob the new head of the Academy of Magic.
He-Man uses the Sorceress' portal to go to Trolla, where Orko and Dree Elle sneak inside Snoob's house and discover Whiplash, who has been controlling Snoob through fear. Whiplash wants Snoob to teach him magic so that he can impress Skeletor. Whiplash's Kroom henchmen take Orko and Dree Elle away to their fortress, where Whiplash reveals that he used a ray to weaken Montork when he was competing in the duel of magic against Snoob. Spurned, Snoob joins Orko and Dree Elle.
Whiplash unleashes his beast Scarg to combat the heroes, but the combined magic of Snoob, Orko, and Montork shrinks the Scarg into a harmless worm. He-Man traps the fleeing Whiplash in a treasure chest, and Orko forgives Snoob.
