Halt! Who goes there? You’ve just discovered the secret city of Arcadia, where women rule and men must toil away in the underground mines. Also, no one in this city knows how to use their inside voice.

Prince Adam and Teela run into the Arcadians on a visit to the lowland villages and become trapped in the city. While Teela tries to talk some sense into the queen, Adam sounds the alarm about the crumbling infrastructure in the mines. But can our Eternian heroes help the men and women of Arcadia work together – and avoid certain disaster?

To find the answer, we discuss where the story succeeded and where it got weird. We also talk through historic space missions, gymnastics moves, and some bonkers voice work. You have to hear one of these guards. It’s probably a safe bet that Mr. Filmation’s kid needed a SAG card.
