After all the fighting between Doctor Who villains these past couple of weeks, it’s time to cleanse the palate with a magic show!  Two magicians step on the stage to entertain – Orko (He-Man) and Presto (Dungeons and Dragons) – but I have a feeling things aren’t going to go as planned.

VOTE!

Which "magician" would mess up their show the least?

    I don’t know who would messes up the least, but Orko has to be the winner. Always

    I recall Presto constantly screwing everything up. I can’t recall Orko mucking things up as much

    “Cleanse the Palate?” There is nothing like a bit of bile rising to the throat thinking about these two to cleanse the palate. Excuse me while I gargle kerosene to rinse the foul taste out of my mouth.

    I think that Presto might win this battle.

    If I remember correctly, Orko’s problem was due to him travelling to Eternia in the first place. Something in Eternia causes his magic to misfire.
    Presto’s hat seems to be sentient and prone to misinterpreting his wishes or fulfilling them in strange ways.

    All in all, i think Presto’s screwups could be functional and funny enough to carry his show to conclusion.

    Orco gets the win for his all time epic caracter theme.
    De-dededed-dee-dee.

    Orko had a bit of trouble with his magic, but at least he could also do things without it (and sometimes did so to save his friends). Presto, on the other hand, I think relied too much on his gear and not his own abilities (even if he himself didn’t have magic).

    Of course, I’m a little biased because up until the fall shift of shows, there was an hour of He-Man and an hour of She-Ra at 3 and 4 Saturday Morning (yes, before most kids would be up) on a channel I get. I haven’t seen the D&D toon in a couple of years when I watched through the DVDs, and it was 15+ years when I’d last seen it before that.

    Presto is a kid, and i still hold out hope that he’s going to grow up into a badass mage one day. Orko on the other hand is just . . . Orko. Put him on a show and . . . you’re stuck with him.

    Presto didn’t make me not want to watch the show like Orko does for He-Man, so Presto takes the win.

    I voted Orko because even his toy was messed up…
