Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. “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.

  2. 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.

  3. Presto he did magic orco I dont recall doing anything
    and back when I was a kid there was idea that one day Presto would get good and pull a gun out the hat and just shoot venger
    hey we were nine when the bbc showed them in the uk.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
