Wow, what a fun week! Some good episodes, and hey! Even some news about the cast! How fun!
Season 4: Episode 5 “Car Alarm”
I forgot about the running gag in season 4 of people breaking Shego out of prison while leaving Drakken in their, to be jabbered at by Frugal Lucre. This time it’s Motor Ed who busts her out, and pulls a “nice guy ™” move by pointing out that she now owes him. She accepts this, just barely, and in a fun gag, he’s basically just trying to make her his girlfriend.
She is not happy about it.
Kim, meanwhile, wants a car, and her father gives her an old “Sloth” which is the worst car ever. The Tweebs offer to fix it up in exchange for chauffeur services.
She is also not happy about it.
Ed and Shego steal a top secret engine from Mr. Dr. P, and there’s a really fun care chase tracking them down. Also there’s some cool character design where Ed transforms Shego into his perfect woman.
Seriously, this is a pure fun episode.
Season 4: Episode 5 “Mad Dogs and Aliens”
This is as close to an episode of Futurama as Kim Possible was ever going to get. Seriously.
Drakken finally gets out of prison, everyone figures Shego did it because it was a green woman who did the breaking out. It wasn’t Shego, who’s on vacation at the moment, it was a large alien woman by the name of Warmonga who comes from a race who worships “The Big Blue” who will lead them to destructive glory.
Drakken just kind of goes with it, put he does want Shego to watch, because he wants her to see him win without her.
Both this conceit and the pettiness would fit very well with a certain cantankerous robot. Who bends things.
Bender. Bender would take part in this scheme.
Meanwhile, Ron has realized that he can’t be on the football team and the mascot, so Jim and Tim take over as “The Pep Puppies,” this is Bonnie’s idea, presumably, because she knows it will drive Ron nuts. It does. In the end, Kim stops Warmonga, with Shego’s help because if anyone is going to beat Kim, it’s going to be Shego.
I love this episode.
Boo-Ya’s and Nacos
- Let’s talk about Guardians of The Galaxy. It looks good. I’m excited to watch it. Friedle was a good pick for Star Lord.
- In the end Motor Ed winds up with Lucre, and he’s annoyed by Ed! Fun!
- While Kim is driving the tweebs around, Ron mostly wants to join in on their antics. Hah, oh Ron.
- Motor Ed continues to delight me. He’s so much fun. Seriously.
- I do love the way this season frames Shego as the most important element of Kim’s crime fighting. It’s very true and it also makes for some great work from Nicole Sullivan.
- I like that this was a Tweeb showcase week. I’ve always found them to be a great deal of fun.
