Teela has been yearning to find out who her mother was, but her adopted father Man-at-Arms has been sworn not to tell. So Teela heads off to the Crystal Sea to see the Oracle, which will tell her. Since it's a dangerous area, He-Man goes after her. While looking into her past, Mer-Man interrupts and captures her for a sacrifice.

"Teela's Quest" happens to be the 6th episode of Season 1, which has a surprisingly drawn up back story that stably holds up. Teela might seem like a sideline player, but for this story by Paul Dini she does get a little more depth than usually associated with the other episodes. The simple black and white approach has an emotional edge attached, but nothing overly deep. Well, it's a cartoon aimed at kids! The fun factor is extremely high in this painless set-up and it doesn't seem to flounder too much, even though it's more story focused. It's basically Mer-man's turn to cop a defeat at the hands of He-Man. There are some imaginative developments and actions occurring on this foray.
