"The Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal" is the 30th episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

Moat Crossing

One player of each team swam a rope over to the other side. Once out of the water, he had to tie the rope off on a pole that held a second tied rope higher up; both connected to the other side. Once tied, the second player had to use the two ropes and maneuver across the moat. Once he was across, the team could run over and hit the gong.

Steps of Knowledge

One of the greatest generals who ever lived led an army of 60,000 men and 38 elephants through Spain and France, and over the Alps into Italy. His name was Hannibal, and he crushed the ancient Romans in the worst defeat of their history. Legend has it the idea came to him in a dream. One day, Hannibal summoned his spiritual advisor, Mumbo, and said to him:

"I dreamed I was floating above the ground on something gray with wings, and while riding it, I crushed the city of Rome. What do you make of this, O Spiritual Advisor?"

"My lord," said Mumbo, "you must gather a band of elephants and take them over the Alps to Rome!"

This seemed like a good idea to Hannibal, so off he went, and bought 38 elephants. The elephant dealer was so pleased he gave Hannibal a silver saddle horn as a token of his thanks. Hannibal won his battle and gave the Silver Saddle Horn to Mumbo.

Temple Games

Hannibal Helper (Mountain)

The first game required the girls to climb up a "mountain," grabbing the four stuffed elephants along the way and putting them in the sack they were carrying. When they got up to the top and got the fourth elephant in the sack, they then needed to climb down the other side of the ramp; whoever completed the game first won. The girls both climbed at the same pace, but what decided it was the fact that, at the beginning, Vicki had a harder time getting the elephants in her sack than Jessica did. Vicki tried her best to catch up, but she was still a little bit behind when Jessica made it down the other side of the mountain with 16 seconds left, so the Green Monkeys won the first half Pendant of Life.

Slippery Alps (Water Chute)

The second game was another fun one. Before the game, Kirk explained that Hannibal lost all but one elephant in the Alps because their flat feet meant that they slid around a lot on the snow and ice and got hurt easily. However, in the game, the boys had to slide as far as they could in 60 seconds, with only the furthest slide within the time limit being compared. Lee started out strong, but eventually Damon caught up and slid further as he got the hang of the game. His furthest slide was a bit better than Lee's furthest, so Damon won a half Pendant for the Red Jaguars, tying the scores.

Roman Column (Pulley Pillar)

The last Temple Game was that two-person pulley game that was used a lot throughout the first season. This time, players needed to build a Roman column by grabbing a ring and dropping it onto the pole. For what it's worth, the game wasn't all that bad this time, since both teams got stopped up just as much (other times, the only reason one team won was because the other's rope got caught a lot more). Vicki slipped an extra ring on the column as time ran out, but even without it, the Red Jaguars still got seven rings on the column to the Green Monkeys' six, earning the full Pendant of Life and winning the Temple Games -½.

Temple Run

Vicki was a fast frontrunner; she had no trouble going through the Cave of Sighs and the Pit of Despair, but she also unintentionally decided the run's fate by herself. After opening both doors leading out of the Throne Room, she headed up into the Heart Room and progressed left into the Treasure Room, where she met the first Temple Guard. After figuring out she couldn't directly enter the Shrine of the Silver Monkey from the Treasure Room, she opened the treasure chest and spent a while looking down into it.

After a while, Vicki retreated to the Heart Room, but then headed up into the Observatory and then opened both doors by spinning the sundial, proving that the Jaguars could have potentially started in the Room of the Three Gargoyles and gone across the Troubled Bridge. Confused for a bit, Vicki returned to the Treasure Room from the Observatory, but she eventually headed back into the Heart Room again and then finally climbed back down into the Throne Room with about 1:11 on the clock, having wasted more than a third of the run with her little detour. Vicki then headed into the Holes of Python, where a Temple Guard hidden past the ladder caught her with 49 seconds on the clock.

Damon wasn't quite as fast as Vicki, but he still moved at a decent pace and tried to make up for lost time. The only room that really slowed him down was the Holes of Python, but granted, that room slowed down just about every contestant that went through it. Time unfortunately ran out after he hit the actuators for both crawl tubes leading into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. After great competition in the Steps of Knowledge and Temple Games, this was a fairly frustrating loss at the Temple.

Legends of the Hidden Temple Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal


  • Lee of the Green Monkeys was on of the two British contestants to appear on the show. The other contestant was Janet from The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl (she is British-American). Janet didn't have the British accent, but Lee did. This could mean that Janet was born to American parents and raised in the United States while Lee may have been raised in the United Kingdom and moved to Florida one year in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
  • This was the first of the two runs to ever feature a Temple Guard in the Holes of Python. The other run was The Codebook of Mata Hari.
