Gobo learns of an ancient Gorg legend that tells of the beginning and end of the Gorg dynasty. The original Ruler of the Universe was Sir Hubris, a mysterious person who left his castle to travel the world. Sir Hubris gave his crown to King Gorgus the Great, the first Gorg king -- but if he ever returns, the reign of the Gorgs will be over, and they will be forced to wander the universe. Gobo comes up with a plan based on this legend that may keep the Fraggles safe from the Gorgs forever. Unfortunately, it backfires.
Meanwhile, Doc deals with a leak in his roof.
- While it's pouring on Doc's Workshop (and leaking through the roof), it's perfectly dry and sunny in the Gorgs' Garden. This is the first piece of evidence that the Fraggle/Gorg world is physically separate from the "real" world of Doc and Sprocket and only reachable through magical means. The connection between Doc's world and the Fraggle/Gorg world is mysterious; in the next episode, Doc finds an old ring that is clearly made out of a Doozer helmet.
- In Uncle Matt's postcard, he describes seeing children dressed up for Halloween, and two of the children are seen dressed as Kermit and Miss Piggy.
- Aretha, the monster puppet who duets with Gobo in "Only Way Home," was altered slightly and used in 1994 as Muppet Time’s Huffy Monster.
- In this episode, Gobo discovers a tunnel in Fraggle Rock that leads into the Gorgs' Castle. He would use this tunnel again in "A Dark and Stormy Night".
- Recycled footage from "The Minstrels" is used.
