Kim Possible season 2 premiered in the US with "Naked Genius" at 6:30 PM EDT during the "New & Kim-proved Summer". During this season many changes took place in the production of the show, including Steve Loter taking the place of Chris Baley as director of the series. During this season also premiered on November 28, 2003 (Thanksgiving Day) the first movie of the franchise "A Sitch in Time", which was actually the union of three episodes into one, namely ep. 34, 35 and 36 of the show with production codes 218, 219, 220 respectively.

Episode summary

Kim and her sidekick, Ron, respond to a cry for help from a top-secret military installation, which houses a secret brain-wave device.

Rufus accidentally comes between Dr. Drakken and world domination by intercepting the powers of the device. No one notices but at first.

Then Ron, with a little help from Rufus, appears to be a genius at school, drawing the attention and ire of Drakken, who kidnaps the buffoon to build a doomsday device for him.

Kim and the genius naked mole rat come to Ron's aid, and save the world as we know it.

Trivia

Jim and Tim sound older in all the Season 2 episodes and Kim's eyes aren't as big as they were in Season 1.

In this episode Ron displays himself as a mechanical genius

Starting the second season, Chris Bailey is no longer the series' director.

This episode marks the first time in the series where a teacher other than Mr. Barkin has taught a class.

A few more signs Season 2 is starting: Jim and Tim sound older in all the Season 2 episodes, Kim's eyes aren't as big as they were in Season 1, the credits are smaller at the end of the episode and Jim and Tim's noses are now in a different shape.

When Kim and Ron are exiting the lair (with Drakken and Shego in the background), you see Shego's foot slide out of the goop for a second.

Kim shoots a jello thing through a panel without a window to save Ron from the pit of fish, but she never removed the glass.

If the people who guard Project Phoebus don't even know what it does, how do Drakken and Shego know what it does?

During Kim's line on the roof, after shooting down the goopy stuff ("Did you outfit my clothes with gadgets when I wasn't looking?") her glove cuffs are facing the wrong way. You can tell by the notches.

The bottom of Ron's shirt turns red as the fish jumps up and snaps at him.

Nitpick: It is strange that in this ep, wherein Drakken "dumbs down", he is able to remember Ron's name without hesitation, referring to him as 'Mr. Stoppable'("Well, Mr. Stoppable, have fun with the fish!"), when in some other ep where he is in his "normal" self, he can't seem to remember.

Ron's math teacher said that his 'homework displayed Ph.D proficiency' or something like that-- but why is she assigning Ph.D level homework in highschool?!

When Shego and Drakken are trapped in the green jello, her leg pouch is on her right leg instead of her left.

When Rufus comes around Ron’s back during Ms. Whisp’s speech about how Ron’s work was clearly completed by someone else, his hand briefly disappears. The fingers on his right hand also go directly through his homework during that scene.

After Ron/Rufus finish the test Wade gives them and Ms. Whisp comes to tell Ron he's needed in the auditorium, the blue star on Kim's shirt is missing.

As Kim's star goes missing, the two books on the floor swap colors.

When Kim talks to Wade about his tutoring Ron, a heretofore solid section of the Kimmunicator turns green for a quick second.

It's curious that the writer has Wade refer to "Pythagorean's Theorem". The line should have been either "Pythagoras's Theorem" or "the Pythagorean Theorem".

Since when does Drakken have the strength to burst through a metal door?

When Ron wakes up from his nightmare and exclaims, "Yes! It was just a dream!" his tongue is blue for a moment. His tongue is also blue for a frame while he says his line directly after waking up.

Dr. Zeruda mentions something about Gates, Nash, and Salk being over for poker night. Yet in the scene where the reporter is questioning Ron about a "space-time continuum formula", doesn't it seem odd that the brain waves of a computer genius (Gates), a mathematical economist (Nash), and a medical genius (Salk) would lend themselves to space-time continuum formulas? The only explanation I could figure is if a FOURTH unmentioned poker player was at Dr. Zeruda's poker party. That being astrophysicist Steven Hawking (an interesting side note, Hawking does PLAY poker, so that is making me wonder why Zeruda didn't also add in Hawking's name to that list...or was this an oversight by the writer)?

The back of Shego’s outfit changes from black to green several times throughout the episode, especially in the beginning when she is fighting with Kim.

The Phoebus Project is described as temporarily transfusing the copied brain-wave patterns of geniuses into whoever sits in the chair. It makes no mention of transferring intelligence from one individual to another, or removing it all together. So how, exactly, did Drakken become an idiot...erm, more of an idiot? There are a number of theories (machine malfunctioned, etc.), but overall it is a hole in the plot.

Just before Rufus finishes writing his answer to Ms. Whisp's PhD level equation, the answer disappears (although it's briefly visible in wider shots).

Why didn't Shego just use her hand fire stuff to melt the jello stuff she was trapped in at the end?

Highlander: Wade: There can be only one! This is a popular quote that is said in the TV show/movie Highlander.

Popeye: Ron: I am what I is! This is a spin on Popeye's famous catch-phrase, "I am what I am."

Ron: I am what I is! This line is a variation of a Frank Zappa song/album called "You Are What You Is."

Star Wars: When Kim uses the guardrail to fight Shego, she uses a lot of "lightsaber" moves. In fact big fans of Star Wars probably noticed that Kim looks a lot like one of the "extended universe" characters: Mara Jade, a roughish Jedi knight, to be exact. Those who aren't Star Wars fans probably don't care.

Ron: Drakken, Shego, I give you... The Mangler! Ron naming his doomsday device The Mangler is a reference to the 1995 movie about a possessed folding machine at a laundromat that begins to eat people.

Wade: Okay, smart guy…This is likely a reference to the series Smart Guy, in which Wade’s voice actor, Tahj Mowry, played a ten year old genius.

Zeruda: We all used to be poker buddies. Gates, Nash, Salk... Zeruda is referring to Bill Gates (billionaire software architect), John Nash (Nobel Prize winning mathematician), and the late Jonas Salk (who developed the polio vaccine).

Wade: "There can be only one." The signature line from the "Highlander" movies and TV series.

Don't Break the Ice: The falling cubes are very similar to the Milton Bradley game "Don't Break the Ice."

Episode summary

In this episode, Kim, Ron and Monique are waiting in line to see a movie at the local megaplex, although Ron's having a harder time waiting than the other two. During the wait, Ron mentions that the least favorite part of going to the movies is dealing with a ticket counter taker named Lamar, who's notorious for being slow and having clammy wet hands. Instead the ticket taker is an attractive young hispanic girl named Zita Flores, and Ron immediately becomes tongue-tied over her.

After the movie, Kim, Ron & Monique attend Bueno Nacho, and discuss Ron's trouble with girls. Much of the discussion is centered around his attempts to comply with The Rules. During the discussion, Wade reports a hit on her website from her father, who needs her to find an important robot that was stolen from the Middleton Institute of Technology.

At the lab, Dr. Possible explains that the robot that was stolen had artificial intelligence, which is necessary for a proposed Jupiter project. The same Jupiter project involves a large electromagnet that swiped Ron's pants. One of his co-workers who works in the robotics department is named Dr. Fen. It is uncertain how he received this position, as he is actually a rather incompetent roboticist. All the robots he makes on his own attack him or try to hurt him. In his own dream for credit and fame, he claimed a robot he made was stolen, when in reality he had never even built it, and blamed this on an ex-lab assistant named Vivian.

Vivian was Dr. Fen’s former lab partner, but he fired her, claiming that she "couldn’t keep up". However, according to Dr. Possible, Vivian quit after she had enough of Fen. Vivian is a fan of a local underground robot fighting club, known as the "Robot Rumble." Kim's nerdy cousin Larry is also a member of the club, and helps Kim & Ron infiltrate it in hopes of finding Vivian. The Robot Rumble is accessed through a series of freight elevators, mining cars, and underground tunnels. Larry warns them not to get on the bad side of her boyfriend Oliver, who he believes established the club to begin with.

At the rumble, Kim introduces herself to Vivian, who's quite pleased to meet another member of the Possible family, until she mentions that she's working for Fen, and turns on her. Oliver and Vivian insist that Kim challenges her to a duel in the makeshift arena, but Kim doesn't have a robot on her. When she contacts Wade about it, he suggests using the Kimmunicator, causing the whole club to laugh at the three of them. The Kimmunicator does surprisingly well for such a small device, but in the end gets destroyed. During the battle, Kim realizes that her robot has artificial intelligence, and insinuates that she may have got it at the space center. Oliver stands up to defend Vivian, and as her robot returns her crushed Kimmunicator, Kim, Ron, and Larry are expelled, with the rest of the nerds angrily demanding that they leave!

Ron resumes attending movies in hopes of meeting Zita, who he originally thinks is named Annie, because the theater didn't get her own name tag for her uniform. In the process of trying to meet her, he ends up seeing every movie the theater has to offer. Ron ends up watching a sappy teen romance movie, that he finds implausible, when suddenly Wade interrupts the movie to summon Ron on one of Kim's missions. In an spoof of John Hughes movies, the rest of the theater patrons interpret this as a romantic moment, and applaud wildly thinking Kim is his waiting girlfriend.

On the way out of the theater, Ron tries to avoid being seen with Kim, so that Rita doesn't think they're dating. When he explains this to Kim, she finds the whole notion that they could ever go on a date to be quite amusing. After this, however, she's all business. Though they succeed in breaking into the underground arena, and are able to get the Robot for Fen, Ron accidentally sets off a trap and falls into the pit. Kim manages to help him get out, but both end up being chased through the tunnels by one of the robots from the arena. During the chase, the Kimmunicator gets knocked out of Kim's hands and winds up in front of the cart. When Ron & Rufus try to retrieve it, they get knocked off the cart, leaving Kim to fight the robot alone. To make matters worse, a train appears to be heading their way. The robot retreats, and we find that fortunately, this "train" is actually Ron & Rufus on a hand-pump car using the Kimmunicator flashing a huge spotlight to scare the robot away.

After snatching the robot for Fen, Kim returns home, but something about the caper seems to rub her the wrong way. While there, she finds that Jim and Tim have made their own robot for the rumble, and Mr. Dr. Possible is quite impressed. That is until it starts wrecking the furniture and grabbing the tweebs, which reminds the Possible patriarch of his co-worker Dr. Fen. Kim's high level of common sense and alertness allowed her to realize that Dr. Fen was a fraud, Just then Wade signals Kim to let her know that Fen doesn't have a single scholarly article on robotics, and somebody named "V.F. Porter" has them instead. Before Kim & Ron arrive to confront Fen, Oliver accuses him of stealing the robot, and almost attacks him, until Vivian stops him. Kim finally enters the lab to tell him she knows he's the thief, but Fen insists that he doesn't care, because he's got the reputation as the expert. He then threatens to destroy Oliver's robot if Kim didn't let him go, but a clever use of the same electromagnet from the Jupiter project saved the robot. In the process, Oliver also gets caught in the magnet and we find out Oliver was also a robot.

As Dr. Possible arrives with police escorts, Kim explained that she figured out who the real genius was and pointed out Fen as the fraud. Vivian is an expert in robotics who was framed by Dr. Fen so that he could steal her artificial intelligence robot. Presumably, he had been stealing others' ideas for a while, but in the end, Fen was arrested. Vivian was awarded Fen’s position in the robotics lab, and she was more than enthusiastic to take the job.

Ron finally thinks he has a chance to ask Zita out at the movie theater, but ends up meeting the dreaded Lamar at the ticket window this time. But just when all hope seems lost, he finds out as he sits down to watch the movie that Zita is sitting right next to him. Both enjoy each other's company, and the same sappy movie that Ron was watching previously. And Rufus enjoys every sappy minute of seeing them together.

Trivia

When Kim and Ron leave the theater in this episode, Kim says "You and me...on a date?", and Ron says "It could happen". This is a clue into the future events on season four where they are a couple.

During the pan at the beginning of the rumble between Oliver's robot and the Kimmunicator, you can see Ned appear twice. Both have the exact same animation and body positions. The one of the left is the brunette Ned with an orange Bueno Nacho uniform shirt and dark pants; the one on the right is blond Ned with light blue shirt and brown pants. Both are wearing the management tie with the correct colors.

Three of the Robot Rumble club members have been seen before (or will be soon).

Ned (Assistant Manager from Bueno Nacho), Justine Flaner (from the upcoming episode Partners) and the unnamed girl in blue from Middleton High (who is in almost scene that requires background extras).

Fen's skin has a definite greenish cast in the final scenes in the magnet room that it didn't have before.

When we first see that the subway train is actually Ron and Rufus with the Kimmunicator, it shows that the light is coming out of the center of the bullhorn. Later, the light is being beemed out of the Kimmunicator screen.

When Ron says "Seemingly coming out of a date movie - together," the bottom of his shirt is red.

During Ron's "If someone didn't know that we were just best friends..." ramble outside the theater, Kim's mouth and nose seem to "droop" a bit as she closes her eyes, as if a cel overlay of her expression had slipped. Her nose moves from between her eyes to across her left eye.

Larry picks up the helmet-thingy from the curb before he goes in to the Robot Rumble, but it wasn't there in the wide shot as Larry, Kim and Ron pull up to that area.

When Kim, Larry and Ron are riding down the elevator-thing to the Robot Rumble, Kim changes positions between the moment of the long shot and the close-up of her and Larry. (During the long shot, she is facing towards him. In the close-up, she is facing away from him.)

When Ron and Kim walk out of the elevator, the bottom of Ron's shirt turns red.

As Kim, Ron and Larry go down the elevator, Kim is talking but her mouth doesn't move.

Where was Rufus' skeleton when Ron passed through the X-ray machine?

During the Robot Battle, when Wade is controlling the robot, why would Wade need both the keyboard and the joystick to just move the robot? The robot isn't doing anything but moving so Wade's key pushing would be pointless.

Wade appears on the screen, yet when the movie is being shown there are several little scratches and dark spots, which would indicate a projector.

Near the end of the episode, Ron takes a ticket from Lamar which is covered with sweat. This couldn't logically have happened, since the ticket seems to come out of a mechanical dispenser, which a person wouldn't touch.

The lighting in the Robot Rumble area must have been especially dark or rather unusual, like a filter, because Kim's normally green eyes appear brown during those scenes.

In this episode Ron mentions that he and Kim might date someday.

Brainiac: The computer voice for the space center security devixes is voiced by Corey Burton, who voiced Brainiac in the WB/DC Animated Universe. The security device voice is very similar to his Brainiac performance.

X-ray Machine: The X-ray machine Ron does the leg thing with is almost identical to the one in the Herge comic book "The Adventures of Tintin: Destination Moon". The two policemen in the series (Thompson and Tompson) split up to look for a "criminal". One Thompson, instead of finding a criminal, almost got scared to death by a "skeleton". The other Thompson doesn't believe him, and goes down the hallway... and sees the skeleton! What they are unaware of is that they are looking at each other through an X-ray - Thompson #1 was looking at Thompson #2 through the X-ray (who was standing in front of a "screen"), and goes back to tell Thompson #2. Thompson #2 then goes back (alone) to check it out, while Thompson #1 stands in front of the "screen". Thompson #1 then sees Thompson #1 through the X-ray.

Frankenstein: Vivian's first two initials (VF) match Victor Frankenstein's initials. Victor Frankenstein is a character in Mary Shelley's book, "Frankenstein", which was made into a movie. Just like Vivian, Frankenstein created his own living being, but his monster wasn't a robot, whilst Vivian's creation (Oliver) was.

Disneyland: The scene where the train headlight heads straight in Kim's direction references the train collision scene at the end of the Disneyland attraction "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride".

Ron: "My Little Puppy 2; Puppy's Pride" "My Little Puppy 2; Puppy's Pride" is a combined reference of My Little Pony and Pound Puppies, two cartoons based on toy-lines from the 1980's.

Ron: Changed my mind, thought I'd catch "Meeting Cute" instead "Meeting Cute" is a writers' slang for the scene in a story where the protagonist meets their love interest.

Ron: Changed my mind, thought I'd catch "Meeting Cute" instead "Meeting Cute" was the title for an early episode of Matt Groening's comic strip "Life in Hell." That particular strip also dealt with a loser (Binky the rabbit) trying to work up the courage (and constantly saying he didn't have a chance) to ask out a cute girl rabbit (Sheba).

Batman Beyond Zita's name is a reference to "The Zeta Project." This was "Batman Beyond" spinoff that aired on the WB where Will Friedle (Ron) starred as the voice of Batman (who he voiced regularly on the orginal series).

Brazil: The Robot Rumbles' personnel identification machine is very similar to a security device used in Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" (though the one in "Brazil" looked more like an eyeball)

Schwarzenegger #3: Oliver's unmasking: Oliver is very similar to Stan Winston's T-800 endoskeletons (though definitely less evil looking).

Schwarzenegger #2: Robot pursuit scene The robot climbing on the back of the railcar mirrors the mental hospital escape scene in Terminator 2 where the T-1000 climbs up the back of the police car that John and Sarah Connor are escaping in.

Schwarzenegger #1: X-ray machine at Space Center Last seen in a security checkpoint in "Total Recall" (1990).

2001: A Space Odyssey: When Mr. Dr. Possible talks about an artificial intelligence for a top-secret Jupiter mission, this is a reference the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, HAL-9000 is the intelligent computer aboard a spacecraft headed for Jupiter. While the mission is not top secret, the true purpose is.

The Wrong Trousers: The robotic legs that run amok in Fen's lab are a reference to the 1993 Nick Park claymation film "The Wrong Trousers" featuring the characters Wallace (the master) and Gromit (his dog).

Battle Bots: The robot fighting thing is a reference to the TV show "Battle Bots." A show which features robot fighting.

Episode summary

Senior, Sr hires Shego to tutor Junior in the art of villainy. He turns into an apt pupil, but Sr grows jealous of the time Jr and Shego are spending together.

Meanwhile, KP and Ron miss out on the primo electives of interpretive dance or photography, so they end up in home ec. Ron outshines Kim with his baking skills, which come in handy when they foil another caper.

Trivia

When Kim goofs in home-ec and batter flies everywhere it lands on Rufus and Barkin, but Kim remains clean.

When Ron and Rufus are knocked down to the conveyor belt (after smelling the vanilla :D ), Junior jumps down after Ron, only to be cookie-doughed by Rufus, who is back up on the platform at the controls. How the heck did he get up there?? Ron is never shown throwing him up there.

When Kim and Ron are outside the factory(before the dogs)and Rufus is on Ron's head, his tail is yellow.

The part in Shego's hair changes frequently from the left to the right side throughout the show. (depending on where she's looking)

When Kim wears a hairnet to serve food at Chez Ron, she doesn't tuck all of her hair into it. If your hair is hanging down around your shoulders, it kind of defeats the purpose of wearing it.

In the opening sequence, when Kim lands after jumping out of the plane, her parachute is nowhere to be seen on the ground behind her.

The coloration of Shego's uniform (most notably the "seat") once again changes around throughout the ep.

When Granny is showing Kim her security system inside the vault, the recipe card is not in the case. But it is when Junior (and before him, Kim) go to take it.

If Kim went under the cooking mix, to hold on and spin with the mixer, then wouldn't she have gotten dizzy and lost breath from the pressure?

When Shego is standing over Kim on the railing, and says "I've discovered the joys of teaching," her mouth doesn't move.

The Granny Crocket picture on the corporate logo has just small black dots for eyes, but the Granny that Kim and Ron meet has large blue eyes surrounded by whites.

Kim is seen wearing an apron that doesn't cover her midriff.

When Shego takes the note from Jr. and says "This isn't the recipe", her mouth once again doesn't move.

Title: Two To Tutor: The title is a parody of the phrase "Two to Tango".

Ron: Now, time for a little cinnamon, and you all know what that means: Booyah! Ron’s use of the word “Booyah!” as a catch phrase in his cooking demonstration is similar to TV chef Emeril Lagasse’s catch phrase of yelling “Bam!” as he adds ingredients.

Ron: And that, Kim, is why you fail. With the exception of the word Kim, this line is lifted directly from Empire Strikes Back, in the scene where Yoda is training Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Jedi.

Kim Possible: Villain's Digest: The picture Kim prints out is of a bald villain petting a white cat in front of a laser. This bears parallels to two James Bond flicks: The villain and cat resemble Blofeld and Mr. Fluffy (no relation to Commodore Puddles!). The laser? Well let's say it's from Goldfinger.

Star Wars: When Kim is in the giant mixing bowl and she sees Ron in her subconscious, it is similar to scenes from several Star Wars films. The voice speaking an inspirational quote is a reference to Episode IV, while Ron actually appearing as a manifestation is a reference to Episode V and Episode VI.

Granny Crockett: Granny got some work done! A reference to Betty Crocker and her periodic image update.

Ron: When I was eight, my mom got me a Granny Crockett Quickie-Bake Mixer and Oven set. This is based on Hasbro's Easy-Bake Oven, which derives its heat from an ordinary lightbulb and has been churning out treats for little bakers (traditionally assumed to be girls) since 1963.

The Ron Factor
Episode: 4 (season) / 25 (show) / 22 (production order) First Aired: August 8, 2003 Product Code: 201
Writers: Gary Sperling Director: Steve Loter Animation Production by Rough Draft Korea Co.

Episode summary

The top-secret organization Global Justice and its director Dr. Director believe Kim's success on missions is because of intangible contributions from Ron, and wants to monitor him 24/7.

The Worldwide Evil Empire, headed by the villain Gemini, hears about GJ's research, and kidnaps Ron for their own research. Dr. Director takes the kidnapping personally, and she and Kim go to WEE HQ to rescue Ron.

Trivia

Affter Gemini fired Delta, he still was in the W.W.E.E. lair.

Coloration Goof: When Kim and Monique are shopping (just before Ron struts through), Monique pulls a green shirt from a setup of yellow shirts.

Why didn't Rufus just bite Gemini's other hand? I mean even though he's only a naked mole-rat, he's been smart enough to speak and understand Ron and do lots more.

When Ron says "Sheldon?" the cuffs on his wrists (the ones strapping him to the chair) disappear.

Nitpick: As Kim falls from the helicopter, why didn't she deploy her parachute/jetpack from the backpack? Granted, Dr. Director came to her rescue in the plane, but we didn't know DD was there...and it would have made for a softer landing.

The lines on Gemini's gauntlet appear and disappear at random throughout the episode.

As Ron leaps down from Gemini's control panel, the bottom of his shirt is again red (which it remains for the rest of the shot).

After Kim and Dr. Director blast through the door, the fire that was burning disappears without a trace.

During the main title (and more specifically the vault shot from "Animal Attraction"), Kim doesn't have the lines drawn in her hair.

Gemini: You have failed me for the last time. This is a direct quote from Ernst Stavro Blofeld, leader of SPECTRE and James Bond's arch-nemesis.

Name: Gemini: It's interesting that Dr. Director's evil (fraternal) twin is named Gemini, seeing as a constellation of the same name is composed of a pair of twins.

Moonraker: Sheldon "Gemini" Director sort of resembles the Bond villain Hugo Drax from the 1979 Bond movie "Moonraker".

The Incredibles: One of Gemini's hands is electrical just like Syndrome's electrifying hands from the 2004 movie, 'The Incredibles'.

Austin Powers: Pepe is a lot like Dr. Evil's pet cat, Mr. Flufums, from Austin Powers.

Gemini: "You have failed me for the last time." This is a reference to The Empire Strikes Back. An officer who had repeatedly disappointed Darth Vader suddenly found himself being choked by Vader's use of the Force, as Vader informed him, "You have failed me for the last time."

SHIELD The backdrop of the entire episode bears a resemblence to Marvel Comics' James Bond style comic "Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD". Nick Fury, an eyepatch-wearing secret agent, is head of SHIELD, an international spy organization that fights evil wherever it occurs. Among his many opponents is his evil twin brother, who uses the Zodiac-inspired codename of "Scorpio".

Gemini: Come with me, Ron Stoppable. You will be my Agent Alpha. Together, we can crush Global Justice! Based on Darth Vader's offer to Luke in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

How can you NOT see Dr. Evil in this plot? Hairless pet (Dr. Evil's cat, G.'s dog), chairs that dispose of failures, sibling to a good guy (remember Goldmember?), the list goes on.

Dr. Director moves the pictures around and they enlarge. This scene is a replica of the 2002 hit movie "Minority Report", in which police can foresee crimes before they happen.

Ron: Toga! Toga! Toga! Ron's cries of "Toga! Toga! Toga!" when he thinks that the Henchman is part of a fraternity could be reference to a scene in *Animal House* (the frat brothers decide to have a toga party and one of them [Bluto] starts a chant "Toga! Toga! Toga!".) To go even further, the greek letter on the Henchman's shirt is Delta, which is the name of the house that threw said party.

Gemini's submersible lair is very similar to Stromberg's Atlantis (seen in "The Spy Who Loved Me"), which James Bond also reaches by jetski.

Episode summary

Could it be possible that there's something in the world that Kim can't do? It certainly would seem that way when she and Ron struggle with Middleton High School's driver's education course, and doesn't help when she realized Bonnie passes with ease.

In the meantime, a self-driving sport utility vehicle built with artificial intelligence named S.A.D.I. seeks Kim's help in finding Dr. Freeman, her manufacturer who has just been kidnapped by Drakken so he can force him to perfect his army of destructo-bots.

Trivia

Kim knows how to drive motorcycles and other vehicles during her missions, and yet she feels self-conscious and unfamiliar with driving a car for her driving test.

It seems highly impossible for students to be expected to drive on their first day of Driver's Ed.

Kim has to drive S.A.D.I.E. out of Drakken's headquarters because the blast from Shego's ray damaged her internal guidance system, or something, meaning she could no longer drive herself. But when S.A.D.I.E. confesses to having cheated on Kim's driving test, she clearly pulls up to Kim on her own, sans driver.

When the Destructo-Bots are randomly shooting each other, Drakken is clearly seen jumping far out of the way of a beam that lands and makes a small crater. The next shot with him shows him crawling out of the now MUCH bigger crater.

When Ron is walking back from his first Driver's Ed crash, there are splotches of oil or grease on his pants in the long shot that are not there in the close up shot of Rufus.

In act two, Sadie vaporizes the driver's ed car, but the car returns in the end for Kim to retake her test in.

In the beginning we see Dr. Freeman's house with a garage on the left side of the screen. Later, when S.A.D.I. takes Kim to the house, we see the car parked outside with no garage.

Following Kim's second attempt at Barkin's test, her locker door opens the wrong way and the handles for every locker on her side of the hallway have been flipped. Kim shuts the door almost immediately and the handles are correctly aligned by the next shot, but when the "goofed" background is reused shortly after, the door jumps open again.

When Mr. Barkin first exits the car, you can tell no one is sitting in the driver's side.

When Kim says "Sadie cheated for me", it sounds as though she says "Seedie cheated for me"
When Mr. Barkin asks Kim in the car, "What are you doing?" Kim says "Starting the car", but she was reaching for the gearshift.

When it's Bonnie's turn to take the test, there is a girl in a yellow shirt at her end of the line. Seconds later, as Barkin yells at Bonnie to go, an entirely different girl stands in her place.

The second time Kim is remembering what Barkin and Ron said, their lines have been switched. Barkin says "right of passage" and Ron says "doorway to adulthood".

Kim takes Barkin's driving test three times, each time wearing a different outfit. It's not surprising, then, that someone might become confused: During her second, Sadie-assisted run, Kim can briefly be seen wearing the long-sleeved teal shirt she wore during her first attempt, rather than the white-with-a-pink-heart t-shirt she begins and ends the second in.

Nitpick: Bonnie, Tara and the other cheerleaders are wearing their uniforms, however Kim is not. Seeing as how Kim is Captain of the squad, why is she not wearing her uniform also? Especially if it's game day.

After Ron pulls Rufus from the RC car, as he and Kim walk away, the car is missing from the ground.

Nitpick of all nitpicks: In the "Ghost Car" film, it refers to Judy's car as a "keen little COUPE", but actually the car is a 4-door...a SEDAN. :)

Barry White: Dr. Freeman's stereo's voice and its party mix music are very similar to Barry White.

The Scream: Ron's screaming (after the commercial) emulates the classic painting The Scream.

Men in Black: The stick stift with the small red button on it used for making SADI go super-fast is a reference to a similar device in the film Men in Black.

Driver's Ed Film: The Ghost Car: A parody of the classic Driver's Ed films from the 1950s though the 1970s including "Signal 30" (1959), "Wheels of Tragedy" (1963) and "Highways of Agony" (1969), all featuring the gory aftermath of fatal accidents.

Ron: That drink holder looks large enough to hold a king-size Slurpster! The "Slurpster" is a rip-off of 7-11's Slurpee.

Episode summary

A very large and expensive diamond has been stolen, and Kim and Ron go to retrieve it. The suspect is Falsetto Jones, who is suspect in other crimes but has so far eluded prosecution.

To sneak onto his island lair, Kim and Ron enter his open dog show, borrowing Kim's French friend Francois's prize-winning poodle. However, Ron feeds the poodle lots of Bueno Nacho food, and she's in no condition to compete. They decide to have Rufus pretend to be a dog (a Peruvian Hairless) and compete.

While Ron and Rufus attend the dog show, Kim sneaks into Jones's lair and retrieves the diamond. Unfortunately, Rufus does well in the show, and arouses Falsetto Jones's suspicion. He finds out that Rufus is a naked mole rat and links him to Kim. He catches Kim, Ron, and Rufus, and puts Rufus in a dog kennel with his wolfhounds and Kim and Ron over a pool of electric eels. (Contrary to tradition, he stays to watch their demise.) But Rufus escapes, frees Kim and Ron, and they all escape (via a parachute/dress) to an awaiting boat.

Trivia

Dogs in international shows have to have part of their voice box removed so they won't bark and distub. However in this fancy show, the dogs could bark normally.

Collars in dog shows are to be choker collars, but in this episode they are wearing normal collars
Ron pays off the dog show judge with a blue five dollar bill.

Kim's left glove appears and disappears as she lands on Sam's boat.

When Kim is being told what to feed Gigi, the red can flips from one hand to the other and then back again.

When Kim swings out from under the bridge overhanging the eel moat, she turns on a pair of jet-powered rollerblades, however stealth suits would not have something that loud.

This episode and Adventures in Rufus-Sitting are the first 11 minute episodes ever aired on Disney Channel

This is a half-length episode and first aired with Adventures in Rufus-Sitting.

Kim: "Hit it Sam." Line often spoken by "Hondo" Harrelson to the unheralded sixth member of the team--Sam, the driver of the S.W.A.T. van.

Title: Rufus in Show: "Rufus in Show" is a parody of the movie title "Best in Show" which focuses on the eccentric dog owners who enter their dogs in a nation-wide dog show.

Episode summary

Kim & Ron recover a computer chip from a sunken ship to prevent it from being stolen by Shego, Duff Killigan, and Lord Moneky Fist. But when Ron goes on vacation and leaves her to take care of Rufus, he accidentally swallows the chip which activates it, spawning three separate plots to kidnap him by the aforementioned villains.

Trivia

While parachuting from Duff Killigan's blimp, Kim is talking to Ron on the Kimmunicator. When the camera shows her hands gripped on the Kimmunicator, her gloves have disappeared. However, in the next scene, she has them back on.

This episode marks the second time Shego has worked independently from Dr. Drakken.

Ron's dad asks "Who wants to go to the Louvre?" He pronounces it "loov-er" when it should be pronounced as "loov."

When Rufus fell down the elevator shaft he was "below" the place Kim and the villians were fighting. But then Rufus is "above" the same place when Kim screams "Rufus jump down to me!!!!"

When Kim reads from the birth card after Rufus falls asleep, she says "It's a girl," but the card is blue.

Traditionally, 'pink is for girls, blue is for boys.'

When Ron calls Kim from France, she brings him up on the Kimmunicator. How does she get a video image of him? Ron is calling her from a regular phone and doesn't have a vidcam pointed at him like Wade does.

As she is reading the newpaper at Smarty Mart, both of Shego's gloves are black.

Monkey Fist's monkey fists are incorrectly colored to match those of his monkey ninjas as he first catches Rufus on the Eiffel Tower.

When Kim jumps into Duff's blimp, she has her backpack on, but when he hits her with the net, she doesn't.

Kim's gloves are missing again when she says "Rufus, jump down to me".

When Kim is talking to Ron while falling after Duff she doesn't have any gloves on.

The entrance to Kim's room is different than in previous episodes. In "Animal Attraction," specifically, it is shown to be a open hole with some fixed steps. In this ep, there is now a hallway with a door.

The monkey ninjas work for Monkey Fist again, yet they learned Ron was their leader in "Monkey Ninjas in Space".

When we first see Killigan, the green he is standing on is actually brown. After Killigan hears the signal, the green is green and the brown area is off to the side.

Nitpick: Ron said that Rufus must have Rock-a-bye baby SUNG to him, yet in the end when Kim opens the card and the instrumental version plays, he falls asleep.

This is a half-length episode and first aired with Rufus in Show.

Predator II: The scene in which Kim cuts herself out of the net is similar to a scene from Predator II in which Harrigan is pinned to the wall by a net and escapes in much the same way as Kim does, by swinging a cutting blade.

Live and Let Die: Kim's watch/saw is similar to a device in the James Bond film Live and Let Die (in it, Bond's watch has a sharp edge and rotates; no tiny saw)

Title: Adventures in Rufus-Sitting: The title comes from the 1980's movie "Adventures in Babysitting".

Writers: Nicole Dubuc Director: David Block Animation Production by Starburst Animation Studio.

Episode summary

Drakken and Shego steal a weather machine, planning to unleash an ice storm on Canada to conquer the country. Meanwhile, Kim and her classmates spend Career Week working with mentors. Ron's mentor is a secret agent, and Bonnie's mentor is Mrs. Dr. Possible, but Kim is stuck working with Joe, the new janitor at school.

Kim is embarrassed to be perceived as having chosen the janitorial arts as her career, but she eventually finds Joe's training surprisingly useful.

Trivia

When Rufus tries to get the dinghy off of Ron, his arm is a different color for a moment.

When the fish are dumped into the cockpit of the weather machine, Shego clearly says "So that's where the fish went." She should not have been able to say this while submerged in water, not to mention fish.

When Bonnie comes over Kim's house, the heart on Kim's shirt turns a different color for a moment (presumably mistaken for vacuum bag debris).

As Kim and Ron leave the Tri-City-Air booth, the bottom of Kim's hair turns green.

Janitor Joe was supposed to be Canadian, but he had an American accent.

When Ron releases the sneezing powder on Drakken, it goes in Drakken's face even though the wind was clearly blowing towards Ron.

Kim's hair gets wet from the rain while she and Ron are tied to the lightning rod. However, when she and Ron climb aboard Joe's floating ship, it appears to be fully dry.

Kirsten Storm's (Bonnie) name is misspelled "Kristen" in the credits.

When Job Unfair aired on 8/29/03 at 10:30 Pacific Time, Kirsten Storms was spelled correctly.

During Kim's "OK girls, that was almost perfect" speech, one cheerleader's uniform is colored differently from the rest (gold bands rather than red). Stranger still, that same cheerleader's arm is missing from the wrist up!

That black that tops Shego's collar appears and disappears once again throughout the show. (I think the animators do that on purpose!)

While talking to Janitor Joe, Kim brandishes the Kimmunicator from her cheerleading uniform (pockets?)

The volume of water in the Great Lakes is 6 quadrillion gallons of water (6,000,000,000,000,000 gallons) weighing about 24,000,000,000,000 tons (not including fish). That amount of water is many times the size of the machine, so where does it all go?

Ron: Nitro Smoke Bomb, Krypto Decoder, don't know what this is...Ron looking through his bag of gadgets, naming them and claiming he doesn't know what one of the gadgets are is faintly similar to a line from an episode of Danny Phantom titled "Identity Crisis" where some entertainment items are moving toward Technus and he's naming all of them. His exact words were "Plasma screen, surround sound, I don't know what this thing does..."

Ron: This chimerito will self-destruct in ten seconds...This is a gag on the self-destructing letter which appear in many inspector or spy type movies/series. The purpose of a self-destructing letter was to remove all evidence of said letter existing, so the person had to memorize it... and fast!

Inspector Gadget got self-destructing letters, which always seamed to end up blowing up in his face, or blowing up in his superior's face. "GADGET!!!"

Ron: the immobilization ray. The immobilization ray backfiring and hitting Ron is very similar to a scene in the movie/book Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets, in which a character(who's also named Ron) tries to use a spell on an enemy, but it ends up backfiring and hitting him.

Harry Potter: The Cumulus 2000 (weather machine) is a play on Harry's Nimbus 2000 (broom). Cumulus, like nimbus, refers to a type of cloud.

Ron: ...this chimurrito will self-destruct in ten seconds. A reference to the TV show "Mission: Impossible." The agents would receive their messages on tapes, which would self destruct after they had been played.

Ron: Hello, Miss Possible. The name's Stoppable. Ron Stoppable. Ron emulates James Bond, not only paying homage to the famous line, but impersonating him (doing a Connery-Bond accent).

Episode summary

Kim's family and Ron go to Florida to help Kim's grandmother move into her new retirement community. Ron has a ulterior motive: to meet girls at spring break parties.

Kim's Nana is very protective, and tries to talk Kim out of being so gutsy in her life. As fate would have it, Drakken's also in town. He's attempting to use the spring breakers' MP3 players to induce hypnotic trances and create a "zombie" army. Instead, he taps into hearing aids, and inducts an army of senior citizens. He decides to use them anyway, especially after he discovers Kim's grandmother is among them and makes yummy lemon bars.

Trivia

Dr. Drakken presents Kim with a large file of research that he did on Nana Possible, and yet he is surprised that Kim (a high-profile person in her own right) is Nana's grand-daughter. It is very odd that the relationship never came up in all that research performed by Drakken.

As the party starts in Drakken's swamp lair, Ron is standing in front of a crowd. A moment later, the crowd behind him is gone and two girls hoist him up to a stage that wasn't there before.

The orange-haired girl who gives Ron the "L...to the O...to the S-er" line is wearing a two-piece bathing suit when she does so. However, when Rufus points out "My fans" to Ron, that same girl, who is cheering, is now wearing a one-piece bathing suit.

Drakken's original plan in this episode states that he will hypnotize all the teens listening to their MP3 players.

Ironically, not one of the Spring Breaking teens seen in the episode is listening to any sort of music device.

There is no way that the Kimmunicator (piloted by Wade) could have gotten from the gator farm to the pool where Ron was, give Ron enough time to make and hand out all those fliers, and have everyone make it to the gator farm in the time it takes Kim to have that fight scene.

Kim is not wearing her belt with the rest of her mission gear while fighting Shego.

When Drakken learns his mind control frequency works on hearing aids, he announces that the entire elderly population will be under his control. However, not every elderly person wears hearing aids, and even some younger individuals wear them to counter hearing loss.

When Kim and the old folks are Jet Skiing, they get on the jet skis without any life jackets on, but then in the next scene, they do have them on, only to have them off again come the next scene.

When Kim says "Nana, Drakken's getting away" the turtleneck part of her shirt is missing.

When the hypnotized Nana kicks Kim into the crates, the papers that Drakken gave Kim telling about her go flying out of her hands, however after sitting up in the crates, Kim pulls the papers out from behind herself.

When driving the ice cream truck, both of Shego's gloves are green.

If you go by production order, "Job Unfair" (212), where Drakken tries to take over the Great White North, comes after this episode (211), but Kim says it happened "last week".

In the Possible family van, Rufus jumps onto the driver's seat, next to the head rest, but on a close up shot of Rufus there is no head rest.

When everybody but Kim sings "Camptown Races" in the car on the ride down, they sing, "Camptown Racetrack, 2 Miles Long." The correct lyric is "Camptown Racetrack, FIVE Miles Long."

Nikki Cleary's "Summertime Guys" (from the "KP" soundtrack) plays during the "party" at Drakken's lair.

Robocop 3: The scene where Kim as chasing Drakken and Shego on the rocket skates is similar to Robocop 3 in the fact that Shego dropped ice cream on the street in order to get the children to block Kim’s path, which prevented Kim from chasing them; this was also done in Robocop 3, but rather than ice cream, the crooks dropped money in the street to prevent Robocop from chasing them.

Drakken: Mmm.These lemon squares are delicious. In Get a Clue (Disney Channel original movie)Mrs. Dawson made Lemon Squares and Lexi said they were delicious.

Sign: Olde Home Buffet A combination of the Old Country and Hometown buffet chains (both properties of Buffet, Inc).

Mr. Possible: You know what might take your mind off things? A good game of Strategories! This is a reference to several board games; the name is a cross between Statego and Scategories. Kim calls the racecar, which is a popular piece in the Monopoly board games. Kim later “takes ‘Science and Nature’ for the block”, Science and Nature being a Trivia Pursuit category and “taking for the block” is a trademark saying on Hollywood Squares, a popular variation of Tic-Tac-Toe.

Dr. Drakken: It's a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day! This quote is from the classic Disney movie "Song of the South" which the ride Splash Mountain was adapted from.

Drakken: "Your Nana is a bad grandmother..." Kim: "Shut your mouth!" Drakken:: "I'm just talking about Nana."

A nice little homage to Shaft, the world's baddest private eye. The movie's theme song contained a very similar line.

Drakken: Not in the face! A line taken directly from the Mel Brooks classic Blazing Saddles, where the same course of action is taken.

Episode summary

Ron tries to impress his new girlfriend, Zita, by pretending to be good at an on-line adventure game, Everlot. While boasting of his fictional talents, he raises the anger of another boy, Malcolm, who secretly longs for Zita.

That night, Ron tries to meet with Zita in Everlot, but keeps getting killed. He enlists Wade, who helps Ron get vital objects in the game. He meets Zita and helps free her from a trap she'd been in. But then the Black Knight comes to stop them, but they get away.

The next day, Zita gets a text message about a meeting of Everlot players downtown. She and Ron go, but only find a nearly-empty warehouse with two chairs.

The chairs are a trap, which capture them and link their minds directly into the game of Everlot. Rufus is alarmed, and goes to Kim for help.

Meanwhile, Ron and Zita are fighting the Black Knight in Everlot, when Ron figures out that the knight is Malcolm. Malcolm offers Zita freedom if she'll share her accumulated powers and become queen of Everlot with him. She declines, also declining a date in the real world.

Back in the real world, Kim figures out what has happened and joins Wade in Everlot (via computer). (Kim - being a newcomer - is a virtual spritekin (small fairy).) They track down Malcolm, who has captured every other player in Everlot and has become very powerful. They themselves are captured, and all seems lost until a long-lost warrior returns to the game - The Tunnel Lord, who is played by none other than Rufus. While Rufus and Malcolm battle, Ron gets an idea. He tells the other players to forfeit their powers to Zita. Zita's computer-self grows massive, and becomes powerful enough to defeat Malcolm. With the Black Knight defeated, the game ends and all the virtual players exit the game. All except Ron, who take a minute to proclaim a "Boo ya!" with a sword in his hand.

Trivia

Everlot Ron's mouth doesn't appear to move in the "Booyah!" at the end of the episode.

During the cage-wagon scene, Everlot Jake briefly has 5 fingers. For anytime before or after that one shot, he only has 4.

The warehouse with the Immersion Caps inside looks strangely similar to the shot in the opening of "Ron Factor"...

As Ron and Zita walk past Malcolm(in Middleton High), the bottom of Ron's shirt is red

This episode emphasizes Ron's love of video games.

First episode to premiere at KP's new time, 5/4c.

Super Mario Bros.: When Ron and Zita leap towards Malcolm doing the Matrix kicks, the sound effect of the jump is from Super Mario Bros.

TRON: There are some references to the movie TRON as well, most notably being forcibly trapped in the system and unable to "log out", and leading a rebellion of sorts.

Malcolm: The Wraith Master. This name is a play on one of the villains in The Lord of the Rings: The Lord of the Ring Wraiths.

The Empire Strikes Back: The duel between the Tunnel Lord and the Wraith Master uses several elements from the lightsaber duels in The Empire Strikes Back.

Samurai Jack: The animation for the virtual-world of Everlot is done in the style of Genndy Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack (2001).

Everlot: Everlot. The game world, "Everlot," is probably a poke at Massively Multiplayer Online Games and their generic nature. The name combines "Everquest," and "[Dark Age of] Camelot," the first and second most popular such games in the USA. Both games have a typical fantasy setting seen in Everlot.

Ron: "Boo-yah!" The last image of Ron in the virtual world mimics the classic painting of Frank Frazette "Against the Gods" used to illustrate Conan books, including the broken lightning bolt (it's easy to find this image in the Internet)

The Immersion Caps: The Immersion Caps are probably a parody of the addictive game Better Than Life from the novel Red Dwarf. The only difference is that, if you take off the Immersion Cap, it doesn't kill you. Better Than Life, however, does. Eesh.

Mr. Nevious' silent, unnamed, red-headed assistant bears strong physical and mannerism resemblences to Beaker, the hapless lab assistant to Dr. Bunsen Honeydew of the Muppets.

In the battle between Rufus and the other guy, Rufus has a blue sword and the other guy has a red sword. This is an obvious reference to Star Wars with the different color light sabers, red being evil, blue being good.

Ron: Treguna Mekoides! The magic words Ron uses ("treguna mekoides") are the first two words of the Substitutiary Locomotion spell from the Disney movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The full spell is "treguna mekoides trecorum satis dee".

Battle Scenes: Split Screens/Closeups. The split screen and tight closeups seen during the battle scenes are a hallmark of Genndy Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack.

Game: Everlot sounds like a copy of the LotR-style game Everquest.

The Fearless Ferret
Episode: 10 (season) / 31 (show) / 30 (production order) First Aired: October 3, 2003 Product Code: 209
Writers: Brian Swenlin Director: Steve Loter Animation Production by Starburst Animation Studio.

Episode summary

Kim and Ron are Sunshine Spreaders at Dr. Possible's hospital. But fed up with emptying bedpans, Ron volunteers to try to cheer up a shut-in elderly gentleman. The man - Mr. North - is very gruff, but Ron is determined to cheer him up.

While alone in the Mr. North's library, Rufus finds a secret switch. Activating it, Ron and Rufus are swept to a pair of fire poles that lead to a vast cave under North's house filled with superhero crime-fighting equipment. Reading some newspapers on display, Ron deduces that it's the lair of the Fearless Ferret - a Batman-like crime-fighter - and that North was the Ferret. He and Rufus don the tights of the Fearless Ferret and his sidekick Wonderweasel, just as North comes down and confronts them. Ron pleads with North to let him become the new Fearless Ferret, and North agrees.

Ron and Rufus go out on patrol, foiling crime much as he does with Kim - by accident. Kim wonders where Ron goes at nights, so she has Wade trace him to a warehouse. There, both of them confront White Stripe, a villain who shoots a powerful stink spray at his foes. White Stripe escapes, and Ron returns to the Ferret Hole with Kim following. North offers Kim the uniform of Ferret Girl, but she declines. Later, both Kim and Fearless Ferret-2 (Ron) take their own paths investigating a crime spree of stolen items that are particularly stinky: used socks, garlic, cloth diapers.

Then, Ron and Rufus find an elderly woman in distress, who turns out to be White Stripe. White Stripe knocks them out with his stink spray. At the same time, Kim discovers that the Fearless Ferret is actually an old TV character and than Mr. North was the actor who played him. Kim confronts North, who is a bit confused about reality and fantasy. They then discover that Ron has been kidnapped. They follow his signal to the Tri-City Convention Center, where there is a Ferret Fest going on.

White Stripe (another actor from the TV show that is similarly confused about reality and fantasy) reveals his plan to Ron, who is tied up in the rafters of the convention center. He plans to pop the White Stripe balloon, which will cover everyone in the center with a powerful stink that will last for years. Kim and North arrive at the center.

Kim goes to rescue Ron, while North wanders around the Ferret Fest. But White Stripe gets the drop on Kim. White Stripe leaves, and Ron goes into action. He takes Kim back down to the floor, ropes the White Stripe balloon, and pulls it out of the center just before it is popped.

Inside, fans recognize Mr. North, and he welcomes their attention and smiles. So Ron is the hero twice: he saves the confectioners, and he finally spreads some sunshine on Mr. North. (The popped White Stripe balloon flies by the cable TV office, where it stinks up a couple of smarmy executives.)

Trivia

When Mr. North wakes Kim, she is laying on the floor facing away from him. In the next shot, Kim is facing him.

When Ron is laying the fainted Kim down, for a few seconds her midriff is colored black, as though her shirt was tucked in.

When Kim wakes Ron up in the beginning of this episode, one of her breasts are curved; though after Ron’s line, it becomes angular, like it normally is.

Ron was captured at nighttime though it was daytime when he was being tied up inside the building. It’s improbable for a day to have passed because certainly people would have questioned how Ron went missing.

After Ron forces the skunk ballon through the door, it appears to be just as large as the building itself. It seems odd, then, that it's so small when it's inside the building.

When the two conventioners spot Mr. North, the larger one on the right speaks with two different voices.

In the final scene, when the execs collapse against each other, the bags under the female exec's eyes keep vanishing.

After the Ferretmobile zips out of the cave and the shot switches inside, we see Kim and Mr. North. The right side of the roof handle Kim's holding onto vanishes frequently during the first part of the scene.

When Kim and Ron walk outside the school, during Kim's "cable TV" line, what's normally gray on Ron's shoes is colored like his pants.

Ron says his "slight stigmatism" doesn't require corrective lenses (yet). "Stigmatism" is normal vision; "astigmatism" is more likely correct in this context.

When Ron first dons the Ferret costume, the cowl is attached to the rest of the costume, later as Ron hangs upside-down, Kim removes his cowl...which is not attached to the costume.

The overlapping sequence of the ropes binding Ron to the pole changes often.

When Kim says "Sorry Ron, the Fearless Ferret isn't real, it's -- well -- TV Trash" her mouth briefly disappears for a frame or two.

Nitpick: The Lowerton Lemurs football players look strangely similar to the Middleton High football players (identical jerseys).

While riding in the Ferretmobile with North, Kim's eyes are briefly blue.

Aired in the UK Tuesday 3rd September 2003.

George Reeves: This episode might be a reference to the TV urban legend about George Reeves, who got so into his role of Superman that he killed himself because he thought he could fly.

Batgirl: Timothy North asked Kim to be Ferret girl and since this show was like Batman, Ferret girl is an allusion to Bat girl.

Spider Man: The scene when Kim is face-to-face to Ron (upside down) is similar to a scene in Spider Man where Mary Jane takes off Peter's mask and kisses him.

Name: Timothy North: Timothy NORTH has a compass direction for a last name, just like his VA, Adam WEST.

Batman Beyond: This episode is similar to one of Will Friedle’s roles on another series, Batman Beyond. He plays a character that picks up the role of Batman on that series, just like Ron picks up the role of the Fearless Ferret.

Batman: Rufus’ role as Wonder Weasel pays homage to Batman’s sidekick Robin, the Boy Wonder.

Batman: In the Fearless Ferret opening sequence, the Fearless Ferret punches out a man in a crocodile outfit. This is a reference to the Batman villain Killer Croc.

Timothy North: But what about my bum leg? Adam West, the voice actor for Timothy North and the inspiration for the character, actually did suffer a permanent leg injury while he was doing a post-series “Batman Stunt Show” during an accident in the early 1970’s.

The Emperor's New Groove: When Farnsworth smashed the bust of the Fearless Ferret with a mallet, it was similar to a scene in The Emperor’s New Groove, in which the villain in that film smashed several busts of the Emperor with a mallet.

Mrs. Dr. Possible: Rictis Paralysis. This is a side effect of the Joker’s killer laughing gas in the Batman series.

The Scorpion: The Scorpion has appeared in far more than just two issues of Spider-Man, and I wouldn't describe him as a "lesser" villain. One of their encounters, drawn by legendary artist Todd McFarlane, has been reprinted in several Spider-Man trades.

The Scorpion: The basic design of White Stripe's costume is very similar to a lesser Spider-Man villain, The Scorpion (though he appeared in two issues instead of one).

Ferret Fan 2: White Stripe, one of the lesser villains, played by Rudolph Farnsworth, he appeared only in episode 14.

The tone and attitude voiced by Ferret Fan 2 parodies the surly and sarcastic Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.

Batman: The button underneath the statue head and fireman poles are taken directly from the old Batman series, as is the scene where the Ferret Mobile exits the Ferret Hole (the folding-down barricade).

Spider Man: The scene in which White Stripe pretends to be a woman in distress is very similar to the scene in the 2002 hit Spider Man, in which the Green Goblin also pretends to be a woman in distress to capture his foe.

Batman: While going up to the sky, the Ferret Plane briefly silhouettes against the moon. A nice little homage to the 1989 Tim Burton Batman.

The Man with Two Brains: The scene in the hospital where the doctor unscrews the top of his head (and Ron with Kim) is an homage to a scene from the Steve Martin/Carl Reiner spoof The Man with Two Brains, in which Steve Martin's character, Dr. Hfuhruhurr (it's pronounced like it's spelled) creates an identical method for performing quick, efficient brain surgery.

TV Trash Heap: Many of the shows featured on "TV Trash Heap" are parodies of old '70s shows: Mod Quad - "The Mod Squad," Laugh Riot - "Laugh-in" The Fearless Ferret - "Batman"

Ron: If somebody told you I was just an ordinary teenage sidekick - somebody lied. Ron imitates the title character of the 2002 hit, Spider-Man: "If somebody told you I was just your average, ordinary guy, not a care in the world, somebody lied."

Adam West: Timothy North was modeled after Adam West, who starred in the 1966 Batman series. This entire episode is a parody of Batman as well as Adam West, in which Timothy North’s character is very similar to his character; he’s even voiced by the real Adam West.

Spider Man: Kim and Ron’s predicament is similar to the Spider-Man film, in which Ron’s predicament is similar to Peter’s while Kim’s is similar to Mary Jane’s. Like Peter, Ron makes up poor excused to explain where he’s going when he’s really trying to save the day, and just like Mary Jane, Kim gets suspicious of her friend’s behavior and attempts to investigate the issue, though she winds up being saved by her friend.

Episode summary

In this episode, Middleton High welcomes a mysterious wild-haired stranger, named Hirotaka, that practically every girl at school falls head over heels for. To the surprise of the student body and the delight of Bonnie Rockwaller, Ron is transferred to an equally mysterious secret ninja school in a student exchange. As the new boy makes himself at home, Kim and Monique comment on how easily the other girls at Middleton High cling to him and follow him around, despite their own desires to do the same. When Brick Flagg threatens to fight with him over this, Hirotaka defeats him with almost no effort, and Monique is immediately impressed with him. Later in a conversation with Hirotaka, Kim mentions her familiarity with Mantis Kung Fu, and he tests her abilities, and to her surprise finds that she has become one of the "crushing sheep" of Middleton High as well. From this point on, Kim and Monique get into a steadily in testifying competition to impress the exchange student. Kim even goes so far as to use Wade to try to track him down for a date.

Upon his arrival in Japan, Ron is greeted by a young girl named Yori, who leads him by foot to Yamanouchi's secret ninja school. She is highly skilled in martial arts. Besides hand to hand combat, her weapon of choice seems to be two blade-edged fans, which she can wield with impressive cutting force.

The Yamanouchi school's headmaster is Master Sensei, a traditional "wise old master", who is a marital artist possessing a wide range of abilities, a product of his many years of training and experience, regardless of his advanced years and small stature. He also seems to possess a wide range of spiritual abilities, such as astral projection, and the ability to levitate. But despite these skills, Sensei seems to prefer not involving himself directly in conflicts unless he has to, most likely because he believes such acts are best left to the young, whom he does his best to pass his knowledge on to through the Yamanouchi school.

Besides Yori, another student at Yamanouchi's ninja school is Fukushima. During his training, Sensei reveals to Ron, that the school was founded by an ancient master who built it using the sacred and powerful Lotus Blade. When he tells the tale, Fukushima voiced his protest, resentful of an outsider being allowed to enter the school, but is threatened by Sensei. Afterwards, he is shown hazing Ron and laughing whenever he makes a mistake. However, Yori is unwaveringly supportive of Ron and has the utmost confidence in his abilities, although Rufus proves to be far more adaptable to the school's regiment. Even during Ron's clumsier moments, her opinion of him has never changed. In fact, while others are put off, Yori actually seems to welcome Ron's clumsy moments, seeing them as a good tension breaker in a stressful situation. She frequently gives him a kiss on the cheek, apparently to give him encouragement, but she also has a crush on him, something that's revealed in the episode Gorilla Fist. Meanwhile, Lord Monkey Fist waits outside the school grounds and steals the Lotus Blade in yet another attempt to become Mystical Monkey King of the world.

Convinced that he is failing both at his ninja training, and absorbing Japanese culture, Ron is about to leave, when Sensei informs him that Yori fought Money Fist and his monkey ninjas instead and was captured. Like Yori, Sensei has an unwavering confidence in Ron and his abilities and sees him as a true warrior, and that he was selected as an exchange student because of his exposure to Mystical Monkey Power in Monkey Fist Strikes. Despite his lack of confidence in his abilities, he postpones his return to Middleton in order to rescue her. Fukushima teams up with him for the mission, but upon arrival at Monkey Fist's volcano lair, he ends up betraying Yamanouchi to serve Monkey Fist in his attempt to steal the Lotus Blade by telling him the location of the Lotus Blade, and leading Ron into the simian supervillain's trap.

Both Ron & Yori are placed in a cage to be dipped into a lava pit, but Ron reminds Fukushima that helping a supervillain wouldn't look good on his school record, and would keep him from entering a good ninja college. However, Monkey Fist counters his persuasion by promising to write Fukushima a letter of recommendation, once he'd led an army of monkey ninjas into battle. Realizing that Rufus was also exposed to mystical monkey powers, he immediately sends him to rescue Ron & Yori. Later, after Ron and Yori have escaped, the students of Yamanouchi arrived to fight Monkey Fist and his ninja monkeys. Fukushima engaged in battle with Ron, who in the few times successfully employs his Monkey Kung Fu easily defeats him. As he leaves, the school honors him, but insists that he vows never to reveal his activities to the outside world.

Trivia

Yori tells Ron that everybody starts training at four in the morning, but, when they are outside, it is far too bright to be four in the morning.

Sensei claims that Toshimiru, the founder of Yamanouchi, was a master of Tai Sheng Pek Kwar (Monkey Kung Fu), but Tai Sheng Pek Kwar is Chinese, not Japanese.

Yamanouchi and Fukushima are both locations in Hokkaido, northern Japan. This just so happens to be where this story is set. The former means "within the mountains" and the latter means "island of good fortune".

When Ron is at the airport, he is carrying a lot of luggage, then when he gets out of the taxi, he has none and is seen with nonthing but Rufus when he arrives.

When the students are lining up to get sushi from the lunch lady, Yori is wearing her black ninja uniform. Yet a moment later, she is wearing a white ninja suit just like everyone else just before her turn comes up.

When Kim drops down the vent, she goes in head first; though appears sliding down feet first in the next scene. The vent was a tight space so it’s unlikely that she could have flipped herself that quickly with such limited room.

In a shot before the second commercial break, the black circles under Monkey Fist's eyes were not black.

Fukushima's eyes are "bigger" (they aren't just dots) when he trips Ron and before he destroys the bridge.

Ron complains about his clothes ripping off "even in Japan", but it's already happened in Tokyo in the episode "Crush".

When Kim says "Are we the only two girls in Middleton not crushing on him?", her ear is given details.

For one brief shot, as Yori waits in Master Lunchlady's sushi line, her ninja school uniform is black (like the garb she dons later in the episode) rather than white (which it returns to shortly after).

Dante Basco (Fukushima) would go on to voice the title character in American Dragon: Jake Long.

Will Friedle would do a guest voice in a Season Two episode "Feeding Frenzy" as Jake's cousin Greggy. While not as malicious as Fukushima, Greggy is somewhat antagonistic towards Jake.

"I Want It My Way": Lyrics by Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, Music by Adam Berry.

Thundercats: Ron: Here sword, here boy. Ron calling for the Lotus Blade is alot like how Lion-O, from the Thundercats calls for the Sword of Omens.

Name: Yamanouchi: Name is fictional but appears to refer to Yamanashi, both a prefecture (county-sized province) and a small city within the prefecture.

Romeo and Juliet: When Bonnie kisses Hirotaka at the end, the theme from the Romeo and Juliet ballet is faintly in the background. The theme sounds as if played with a plucked string instrument, like a banjo or any number of Asian string instruments.

Ranma 1/2: When Ron is trying to get some sushi from the Master Lunchlady it is very similar to Ranma trying to get the "Phoenix Pill" from Cologne in the Japanese anime Ranma 1/2(episode: Behold! The "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" Technique (3) )

AKIRA: When Ron turns blue and his hair stands up as he stomps the ground near the end of the episode, he is not supposed to be like the guy from DragonballZ but Tetsuo from the Japanese anime movie: AKIRA. Steve Loter said so in a Questions & Answers session.

Shrek: Also a musical score from the movie Shrek is used in that scene(from the scene wherein Lord Farquad is walking through his castle).

Monique: You're the one who said madly deeply This is a reference to the Savage Garden song "Truly Madly Deeply"

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Lotus Blade is a subtle reference to The Green Destiny, the coveted magical sword from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000).

Character: Sensei: The character of Sensei is drawn to resemble kung fu master Pai Mei, who appeared in several Shaw Bros. Kung Fu films during the '70s and '80s, and was recently featured in the Tarantino kung-fu homage Kill Bill

Mulan: Here are a couple more Mulan references: Yori whips out her fan, reminiscent of when Mulan pulls out her fan as she faces Shan-Yu at the climactic scene in the movie; secondly, when Yori runs and grabs Ron as they escape the lava flow, it is reminiscent of when Mulan grabs Captain Shang as they escape the avalanche. Plus, George Takei (Sensei) also did the voice of the "First Ancestor" in Mulan.

Mulan: When Ron and Rufus are putting on their gear to go rescue Yori, they are both facing the window with their backs to the camera and tying the belts on. This is also reminiscent of a scene from Mulan when she is donning her father's armor.

Ron: The boys are back in town! Ron references the classic Thin Lizzy song when proclaiming his return to the states.

Mulan: The scene where Ron and Yori are riding down the mountain on a shield is somewhat similar to a scene in the Disney film Mulan, in which characters in that film perform a similar action to escape the enemy.

Introduces: Yori, Sensei, and the Lotus Blade.

Episode summary

In this episode, Ron tries to make a movie for the Tri-city film festival, "which will redefine the monster genre", but it isn't going too well. Kim isn't interested, Rufus just can't get into character as a giant city destroying monster, and there are only three days left before the fair opens. To top things off news comes through that Dr. Drakken has ordered a shrink ray over the internet, necessitating that Team Possible take a trip to the Mojave Desert in order to foil whatever scheme Drakken has planned.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the Mojave, Drakken, who putting together the shrink ray, outlines his plan. He intends to shrink himself down to microscopic size in order to penetrate the security around Area 51, so that he can steel the top secret technology held within. As usual, Shego is less than impressed at the absurdity of his plan, and is more than a little annoyed that Drakken is ignoring his dog. Who needs to be taken outside in order to "take care of some business", and who is making a fuss about it.

Just as Drakken puts the finishing touches on his shrink ray, Kim and Ron arrive and a Kung Fu battle ensues, after a brief timeout, so that Ron can get his video camera rolling. With the battle taking Drakken's attention, Commodore Puddles decides that he can't wait to go outside, and he relieves himself on the shrink ray, causing it to malfunction, and to spark alarmingly.

No sooner has Commodore Puddles lived up to his name, than the dog is pushed onto the malfunctioning ray's targeting pad and the ray is accidentally activated, causing the hapless canine to grow to alarming proportions. Realizing that a giant dog holds just as much potential as a microscopic villain, Drakken climbs on board the poodle and orders it onwards to Area 51. With Commodore Puddles rapidly approaching, the military put up a "valiant" defense of the base, including an attempt to distract the dog with doggy treats, and an attempt to force it into a giant cage using the world's biggest dog whistles. All of which proves futile. Eventually the military are forced to forced to retreat back to the bunkers beneath the base, during which time General Simms reveals the shocking truth behind the Area 51 to Kim and Ron. The crashed flying saucers, the alien technology, even the captured aliens, all of the rumors are completely true.

After breaching the last lines of defense, Commodore Puddles begins to dig down to the bunkers underneath it, forcing Kim to go toe-to-toe with the giant canine. Unfortunately, after a little initial success, Kim ends up being buried in the ground, along with Ron, whose taken to issuing directorial interjections in an effort to get the entire incident on film. Just as all seems lost, Rufus comes to the rescue. He takes off in a patented Team Possible jet powered roller skate, and returns giant size, after having paid a visit to Drakken's malfunctioning shrink ray.

Rufus and Commodore Puddles begin to mix it up, and the giant molerat quickly gains the upper hand, body slamming his opponent into submission before caging him in the world's biggest dog grate. Meanwhile, Drakken takes advantage of the confusion and enters one of Area 51's underground hangers, where he makes straight for a convenient UFO and proceeds to lift off, only to find it already occupied by a host of aliens who are none too happy.

Trivia

If you watch closely, when Commodore Puddles drops Kim, her right shoe comes off. In the next shot, it shows that her left foot is bear instead of her right.

This is a half-length episode and first aired with with Day of the Snowmen.

Watership Down: When Rufus enters for the first time as a giant and he raises his nose to the sky it is very similar to the VHS cover of the 1978 animated movie Watership Down.

Independence Day: The lab, the floating saucers and the aliens in tubes are very much like the ones in movie Independence Day.

B Movies: The entirety of this episode is a satirical homage to the classic B-movie classics of enlarged animals, including, but not limited to: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957), Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959), The Giant Gila Monster (1959), The Killer Shrews (1959), and The Giant Spider Invasion (1975).

Kim: "Agent Smith..." The two Agent Smiths wear similar clothes to The Matrix's Agent Smith.

Jurassic Park: The vibrations in the glass of water are a reference to a scene in Jurrasic Park when two kids in a jeep see vibrations in a glass of water that indicates that the T-Rex is coming.

Jurassic Park: The Lost World: A nice, quick homage to the scene in Jurassic Park: The Lost World where a T-Rex is unleashed in downtown LA and, at one point, begins lapping up water from a swimming pool.

The Empire Strikes Back: Kim tying up Commodore Puddles' legs with her grappler cable, causing him to fall, is a reference to The Empire Strikes Back; Luke and his co-pilot fire their grappler cables from their Snow Speeder to entangle the legs of an AT-AT, thus tripping the large machine and forcing it into the snow.

Honey I Blew Up the Kids: The shrink ray switching gears and making things larger is reminiscent of Disney's Honey I Blew Up the Kids, the 1992 sequel to Honey I Shrunk the Kids.

Episode summary

A major blizzard hits Middleton, with an excessive amount of snow and wind, as well as rampaging zombie snowmen.

When Kim wakes up to find that it is a snow day, her fun is quickly reversed when she discovers the town has been taken over by the zombie snowmen.

Trivia

When Jim and Tim fall from the tree they are in the tailgate part of the truck then in the next sceen they are in with Kim, Ron, Summer, and camera guy.

When it shows Kim and Ron from the front as the weather machine first lowers from the sky, Ron isn't wearing any gloves.

In the weather machine, when it rains frogs, one of them lands on Kim's head even though she is under a glass dome.

When Ron is sitting on the couch in the background, his red shirt is missing its cream stripes.

We see the snowmen stealing pipes, yet none of the snowmen carry a pipe.

This is a half-length episode and first aired with with Rufus vs. Commodore Puddles.

Appearances by other Disney Channel stars are a regular occurrence on KP (Christy Romano, Tahj Mowry, Will Freidle, Kirsten Storms, Raven), but this is the first time a Lizzie McGuire star does a guest voice (Hallie Todd).

Army of Darkness: In this episode, Kim destroys a crowd of snowmen with a snowplow. This is a reference to the Army of Darkness where in one scene, the living dead were crushed by a giant fan installed on a car.

Mrs. Dr. Possible: It's over...The leading actresses in Capcom's Resident Evil zombie game series always saying this at the seeming end-of-story. And in this situation, it becames a routine that something big and surprising is going to happen, just like the show itself.

Day of the Dead: The episode's title, "Day of the Snowmen" is a reference to George A. Romero's classic zombie movie, "Day of the Dead".

Dawn of the Dead: When one of the Snowmen throws itself on the Plower's windshield, it's reminiscent of a scene in Dawn of the Dead.

Mall Attack: Among the many references to George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead movie series, one of the main attacks takes place in a mall, much like Dawn of the Dead.

Destroying the heads: One of the episode's subtler nods that isn't really emphasized, much like Romero's Living Dead series, the only way to "kill" the zombie snowmen is by destroying the head. (You'll notice that when Kim "kills" the first snowman during the first attacks she destroys the middle and the snowmen rebuild themselves. However, in all later attacks Kim destroys the snowmen's heads and they do not rebuild themselves)

Ron: They don't seem like jolly, happy souls...References the popular holiday song "Frosty the Snowman", which makes the opposite claim of its title character.

Calvin & Hobbes: The snowmen monsters are similar to the ones found in a series of Calvin & Hobbes comic strips where Calvin creates "mutant snowmen". The strips are reprinted in a compilation titled "Attack Of The Deranged Mutant Killer Snow Goons"

Ghostbusters: The whole scene with the giant snowman is a refernce to Ghostbusters, from Jim and Tim's heat rays you the snowman itself (compare to giant marshmallow man in Ghostbusters).

Ron: Lake Wannaweep. Every time I think I'm out, she draws me back in. A riff on an Al Pacino line from The Godfather: Part III: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."

The Ten Plagues of Egypt: The raining of frogs is a reference to the Ten Plagues of Egypt. The third plague was the raining of frogs.

Ghostbusters: Jim and Tim's Snowclearing Device is very similar to the proton packs used in Ghostbusters to hold ghosts at bay in order for them to be captured.

Episode summary

Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable have been best friends since Kindergarten, but Ron's parents decide to move to Norway at the start of a new school year. If Ron moves, it risks putting the future of the team in question at a very bad time, because Dr. Drakken, Shego, Duff Killigan, and Monkey Fist have teamed up to steal the Time Monkey. The Time Monkey is a device used to travel through time, and its head and body were separated and put into two different locations years ago to prevent time-travelling. Drakken, Shego, Killigan, and Monkey Fist have already found the body - now they need to find the head! Meanwhile, Kim and Ron are having trouble communicating because there is a time difference between Norway and Middleton. Once Drakken and the rest of the villains put the head together, they leave Kim and Ron in the present and travel to the past, where they come up with a plan of destroying the Preteen Kim Possible. They find her and preteen Ron going on their first mission, to save two innocent people from being burned by lasers.

Preteen Kim grabs the remote and shuts down the lasers. Watching from a distance are Drakken and the rest of the villains. Monkey Fist summons a huge rock gorilla to crush preteen Kim and Ron. Meanwhile, Kim gets a time-travelling bracelet from a naked mole rat that looks just like Rufus, from the future. The naked mole rat warns Kim that "The supreme one will take over the future. You need to stop the supreme one!" Kim believes that the Supreme One is Drakken, and she travels to the past and finds Drakken and Shego trying to crush the preteen her. She turns the lasers back on and the rock gorilla crumbles. Drakken, Duff Killigan, and Monkey Fist get put in jail, but Shego grabs the time monkey and travels to the future, where she takes over the world.

Kim then takes the battle to Shego in a dystopian Middleton of the future. As they work with a band of rebels to overthrow the one time sidekick, they must defeat Shego with help by adult versions of their once young friends. Kim travels to Shego's palace and finds her friend, Monique and her mischievous twin brothers (who are now adults). Kim finds the time monkey, and also Shego sitting in a magnificent throne. Kim has to battle a muscular-type Drakken, who is now Shego's sidekick. Shego was actually the Supreme One all along, when Kim thought the Supreme One was Drakken. Shego establishes Middleton as her capital, renaming it "Shegoton", and transforms Club Banana into "Club Shego". She has dissenters brainwashed in special facilities and everyone, aside from a small band of resistance fighters, is forced to wear clothing based on Shego's green and black costume (which Kim and Ron had to put on due to other people noticing that they are from the Present).

Shego as the Supreme One, when she takes over the world in the future.Shego tells them her plan, how she managed to take over the world by strategically separating Kim and Ron, thus splitting up Team Possible and decreasing their effectiveness. This way, they failed to stop Shego in the past from obtaining the idol and dragging them into the future, leaving the world for her to dominate. When Ron hears this, he is outraged as he has always hated Norway and it was Shego's fault he had to live there and had to eat meat cakes. Ron, out of superior anger, kicks a time monkey-like stone object, which falls onto the actual Time Monkey and breaks it. The villains are outraged, and tell Ron that breaking the time monkey might twist time and space and destroy everyone. Suddenly, though, a portal opens and sends Kim and Ron back to the past. Kim and Ron have saved the day once again, but this time, they have forgotten everything that happened in the future and don't even remember that they have saved the world. Ron then randomly says, "I hate meat cakes" and they walk off to the distance. (Even though Kim and Ron relive everything that happened, this time, Kim and Ron do not relive going into the future or Ron moving away, which makes it a happy ending.)

Trivia

A running gag throughout this portion of the movie is Ron mistaking any non-english language for another.

When Kim is let out of the sarcophagus in the museum, her hair is messed up. When the camera comes back a moment later, her hair is perfect again.

Whenever Ron's parents have something big to tell him, they prefer to let actions speak for themselves. This is apparent throughout the series. In this episode, when asking about them moving, his father replied "The sign was our way of telling you". Another instance is when Ron is taken by suprise of his new baby sister in the episode Big Bother.

After Monique finishes eating her grande size nachos she wipes some cheese from her face onto her arm. The cheese disappears in the next shot.

When this airs on its own, the movie logo is gone but the sound it made remains.

Drakken's collar turns blue twice in this episode: (1) When he says "Hmm. Mutant showoff" and (2) when he says "Who's she? Where's the buffoon?"

When Kim is looking in the Latin dictionary she is at "T" but she flips left and is at "S" but S comes before T.

During Kim's late-night Kimmunicator chat with Ron, her thumb is briefly colored as though it were gloved.

In the temple of The Tempus Simia, when Shego says "excuse me?", both her right and left arms are black.

As Kim and Ron pull apart from each other post-hug, Kim's hand goes through Ron's neck and Ron's hand goes through Kim's side.

The closed captioning identifies Ms. Ogehs as Ms. Olga, and the Ronnunicator as the Ron Newnicator.

Duff Killigan never enters the time portal in the temple. Monkey Fist enters first, then Shego, then Drakken (after an annoying taunt), and then the portal closes. While it's possible Duff could have entered in between Shego and Drakken, they should have at least shown his hat going past.

Middleton High doesn't seem like a high school that's focused on anything let alone the humanities, and usually only those type of high schools have languages like Latin.

I find it funny that Monkey Fist continually complains about sidekicks in this movie, when on the show HE's needed help from Bates, Fredrick, Fukishima, and Kim herself!

Back to the Future: The way the last two episodes of ASiT start out when they air on their own is very similar to the way the last two Back to the Future movies start out: First, it shows an prologue of what happend earlier and then it moves on to the episode.

Tomb Raider: The idea of an ancient artifact with the power of time travel that was separated and hidden at the opposite side of the earth is very similar to the Triangle of Light in the first Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie.

Episode summary

Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable have been best friends since Kindergarten, but Ron's parents decide to move to Norway at the start of a new school year. If Ron moves, it risks putting the future of the team in question at a very bad time, because Dr. Drakken, Shego, Duff Killigan, and Monkey Fist have teamed up to steal the Time Monkey. The Time Monkey is a device used to travel through time, and its head and body were separated and put into two different locations years ago to prevent time-travelling. Drakken, Shego, Killigan, and Monkey Fist have already found the body - now they need to find the head! Meanwhile, Kim and Ron are having trouble communicating because there is a time difference between Norway and Middleton. Once Drakken and the rest of the villains put the head together, they leave Kim and Ron in the present and travel to the past, where they come up with a plan of destroying the Preteen Kim Possible. They find her and preteen Ron going on their first mission, to save two innocent people from being burned by lasers.

Preteen Kim grabs the remote and shuts down the lasers. Watching from a distance are Drakken and the rest of the villains. Monkey Fist summons a huge rock gorilla to crush preteen Kim and Ron. Meanwhile, Kim gets a time-travelling bracelet from a naked mole rat that looks just like Rufus, from the future. The naked mole rat warns Kim that "The supreme one will take over the future. You need to stop the supreme one!" Kim believes that the Supreme One is Drakken, and she travels to the past and finds Drakken and Shego trying to crush the preteen her. She turns the lasers back on and the rock gorilla crumbles. Drakken, Duff Killigan, and Monkey Fist get put in jail, but Shego grabs the time monkey and travels to the future, where she takes over the world.

Kim then takes the battle to Shego in a dystopian Middleton of the future. As they work with a band of rebels to overthrow the one time sidekick, they must defeat Shego with help by adult versions of their once young friends. Kim travels to Shego's palace and finds her friend, Monique and her mischievous twin brothers (who are now adults). Kim finds the time monkey, and also Shego sitting in a magnificent throne. Kim has to battle a muscular-type Drakken, who is now Shego's sidekick. Shego was actually the Supreme One all along, when Kim thought the Supreme One was Drakken. Shego establishes Middleton as her capital, renaming it "Shegoton", and transforms Club Banana into "Club Shego". She has dissenters brainwashed in special facilities and everyone, aside from a small band of resistance fighters, is forced to wear clothing based on Shego's green and black costume (which Kim and Ron had to put on due to other people noticing that they are from the Present).

Shego as the Supreme One, when she takes over the world in the future.Shego tells them her plan, how she managed to take over the world by strategically separating Kim and Ron, thus splitting up Team Possible and decreasing their effectiveness. This way, they failed to stop Shego in the past from obtaining the idol and dragging them into the future, leaving the world for her to dominate. When Ron hears this, he is outraged as he has always hated Norway and it was Shego's fault he had to live there and had to eat meat cakes. Ron, out of superior anger, kicks a time monkey-like stone object, which falls onto the actual Time Monkey and breaks it. The villains are outraged, and tell Ron that breaking the time monkey might twist time and space and destroy everyone. Suddenly, though, a portal opens and sends Kim and Ron back to the past. Kim and Ron have saved the day once again, but this time, they have forgotten everything that happened in the future and don't even remember that they have saved the world. Ron then randomly says, "I hate meat cakes" and they walk off to the distance. (Even though Kim and Ron relive everything that happened, this time, Kim and Ron do not relive going into the future or Ron moving away, which makes it a happy ending.)

Trivia

The guard who stops Kim and Ron in the future looks similar to Lars, the new manager at Bueno Nacho in "So the Drama".

When Drakken use the Tempus Simia, they should traveled to another time, instead they transported to his lair.

When Kim is trying out for the cheerleading squad the bars are together then when she swings on them they are apart.

Monkey Fist shouldn't have been late. After he found the samurai gorilla, he could just go forward in time and stop right before Duff says "he has the power of time, and he's late!"

Ron is not visible in the wide shot of the napping toddlers.

Ron's mouth disappears for a handful of frames immediately after he announces his parents' long-in-coming decision to allow him a (furless) pet.

When pre-teen Kim finishes her try-out routine, Bonnie bites off part of her pencil. When you next see it, the pencil is whole (with no cutaway to for her to grab another).

Voice-over goof: This takes place during the segment where Rufus3000 first arrives. When we see Wade (in person, not through the Kimmunicator) and he says "I don't think that's Rufus" (I think that's the line), the wrong voice effect is used. They give him the tinny sound we usually hear when he's speaking to Kim through the 'municator, instead of using no effect at all, when we see him "in person".

During her cheerleading tryout, Kim leaps from the trampoline to the rings. But she jumps in from the wrong direction; the trampoline can be seen behind and to the right of the rings, but Kim jumps in from the left.

After the Juvenator is used, other than size and clothing (for Drakken at least), nothing is changed on the villains (ie- Monkey Fist has opposable toes, Drakken's blue) except for Duff Killigan. When he's napping, you can clearly see he's lost his sideburns and beard and they've turned into hair! In Adventures in Rufus-sitting, it is revealed Killigan is bald. While this can be said is a cover-up, because toddlers don't have beards, Monkey Fist should have normal hands and feet and Drakken should be normal-skinned, which they don't.

Recess: When Ron says that the jungle laws of kindergarten are over, this is a reference to Recess, also a Disney show.

Back To The Future 2: When past Rufus and present look at each other present Rufus passes out, in Back To The Future 2, when present Jennifer and future Jennifer see each other they both passed out.

Back To The Future: When Ron is looking at his photo album history changes and the photo changes which happens in all 3 Back To The Future movies, what Doc calls "the ripple effect of time"

Present Kim: Don't try to kiss Walter Nelson. This sounds a bit like something Marty told his parents (in the past) in Back to the Future to make his life easier.

Marty: If one of your kids accidentally sets fire to the living room rug, go easy on him.

Pre-Teen Bonnie: Tin teeth? I gave her a routine no girl can do. The scene where Bonnie comes up with a routine she thinks Kim can't do is similar to the cheerleading try-out scenes in Bring it on and Bring it on Again where the head cheerleader comes up with a routine they think the people trying out can't do. And just like Kim, a lot of them prove that they are able to do them.

Trivia

When this episode airs by itself instead of the movie, the scene where Ron asked Wade if he had a matter transporter is cut out.

When Jim says, "Sorry dude," the background of the center of the place is used.

In the Kimminator Mark 12, there's a closeup of two switches being flipped. In the wide shot where the third one should be flipped, Tim's finger moves to flip a switch, but is placed wrong, hovering over the other two rather than the third.

When Kim and Ron are discovered in the high school, Ron's freckles are all but missing around the time the cuffs come up.

When it goes back to the first day of school, and Kim says "Future?" (after Ron's "Brain freeze!"), her necklace becomes a triangular shape instead of a circle.

The Terminator: The name of Tim and Jim's ship, the Kiminator, is a play off of Arnold Shwarzenegger's The Terminator, in which a race of machines has taken over the world in the future and has sent a machine back in time to eliminate the man who will eventually lead the human race to freedom, similar to the plot in this movie. Since that movie, practically anything Arnold touches gets stuck with the "-inator" suffix.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Before stepping into the time portal to head to the future, Kim says to Rufus 3000, "Let's Warp!...or whatever you call it." The deeply-toned actor who voices Rufus 3000 is the great Michael Dorn. He is most famous for portraying the stern Klingon, Lieutenant Worf, in Star Trek: The Next Generation, in which space was travelled at "warp" speed.

Planet of the Apes: When Ron discovers that the ruins in Shegoton are those of Bueno Nacho, his reaction is quite reminiscent of Charlton Heston finding the Statue of Liberty in Planet of the Apes.

Future Tim: I'm Sonny Tim. He's Sonny Jim. This may be a reference to Jim Henson's Muppet Comedy "Treasure Island", in which a dying pirate grabs someone by the shirt and says "Oh, Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim" to which the person responds "I'm not Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim, he's Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim".

War of the Worlds: The small drones used to carry Ron and Kim to the "Attitude Adjustment Center" are mini-replicas of the ships used in the 1953 film, War of the Worlds.

1984: There are many references to George Orwell's 1984 in this episode. One of the most predominant is the "attitude ajustment center" which is similar to Room 101, where unruly citizens were taken for an "attitude ajustment" so to speak (i.e. tortured).

Ron: He's more robot than golfer now. This recalls a scene from the movie Return of the Jedi, when Obi-Wan tells Luke that Darth Vader is "more machine now than man."

The Terminator: The clothes worn by the Freedom fighters greatly resemble the clothes of the Freedom Fighters in The Terminator.

Star Wars: The deflection bubbles worn by Jim, Tim and Wade are very similar to the deflection shields used in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

A Very Possible Christmas
Episode: 16 (season) / 37 (show) / 44 (production order) First Aired: December 5, 2003 Product Code: 215
Writers: Mark Palmer Director: David Block Animation Production by Rough Draft Korea Co.

Episode summary

In this episode, it is another Christmas at the Possible family household, which means it's an incredibly elaborate one. Even Nana Possible is involved. Despite the fact that he's Jewish, Ron also enjoys celebrating Christmas with the Possible family, and also enjoys the Christmas special "The Six Tasks of Snowman Hank." This year, however the Christmas special is cancelled, and replaced with a winter extreme sports special called Xtreme Xmas, and Ron is devastated by this. That is until Kim cheers him up by giving him an early Hanukkah present.

During Kim's Christmas carolling, Wade beeps in to check on her, then finds that Shego stole a sophisticated battery for Drakken so he can take over the world in a rocket called "Drak-Force One." What Drakken doesn't realize is that Shego has made her own vacation plans, thereby leaving Drakken to take over the world on his own. Seeking to give Kim a better gift than some Bueno Nacho coupons, Ron decides to let her spend Christmas with the family and tries to stop Drakken by himself. Managing to get a boat captain to give him a ride to Drakken's lair, Ron breaks in much more easily than he expects, and though he manages to take the battery after the rocket is launched, he's caught by Drakken and they fight over it. During the fight, Drakken and Ron crush the Kimmunicator, launch all the escape pods, and end up setting off the self-destruct mode. Out of desperation, Drakken suggests that they use the garbage disposal as an escape pod, and they come to a landing in the arctic. While there, Ron & Drakken blame each other for getting them stranded. The argument elevates into a snowball fight, and Drakken almost throws his cell phone at him, until Ron recommends using it to call for help. However, since he's a villain, rather than calling the authorities, Drakken calls Shego instead, who's clearly disinterested and would prefer some time at a beach resort. Drakken instead leaves a message in her voice mail box, but not before finding Ron rummaging through the trash for food that he wants. Both start fighting again.

Meanwhile as the Possible's are performing the Christmas skit, a parcel delivery man knocks on the door with a present for Kim. This present turns out to be a new Kimmuncator from Wade, which he urges her to open early. Wade reveals that Drakken was plotting to take over the world and Ron tried to stop him on his own, but that escape pods from Drakken's rocket are scattered throughout the globe. Kim cuts her holiday short and desperatley tries to find him. The first pod is in London, She's flown there by Nakasumi and Miss Kyoko, and is greeted by the London Police Department, but Ron is nowhere to be found. The same goes for the Mediterranean Sea, some non-descript mountain range, and the deserts of Egypt. The last stop is the Amazon Rain Forest, where Kim learns that a distress signal is coming from. At this point, the only thing keeping her from reaching the pod is a high tree, and an anaconda that nearly strangles her to death. Much to her surprise, the family comes to her rescue. While Kim resumes finding Ron, Jim & Tim request using her Kimmunicator to watch Xtreme Xmas. As Kim finally enters the last pod, she finds the "distress signal" is merely a monkey randomly playing with the buttons.

Drakken negotaites with Ron over a half-eaten chicken leg, and Rufus suggests trading his cell-phone for it. As Ron makes his emergency phone call, he and Drakken face a polar bear and flee back into the garbage pod. The bear pushes them off a cliff and they survive, but continue to argue. During this argument Drakken reveals that like Ron, he too is a huge fan of "Snowman Hank." But when Ron informs him that it was cancelled, he takes the news almost as hard as he does, if not harder. Both vow to keep the memory of the Christmas special alive. Meanwhile on that previous bech resort, a cabana boy offers her some perks and claims that "a gentleman" offered to pay for her vacation, then gave her a message. It turns out to be Drakken, and she checks for the voice mail message Drakken left earlier, which means she's sure to head north. Shego barges into a live broadcast of "Xtreme Xmas," steals a snowboard from an extreme sports athlete, directly in front of the host and starts pursuing Drakken. The host is so impressed by how "extreme" she is, he gets his crew to follow her.

As Kim seems to have given up all hope of finding Ron, Jim & Tim inform her that Shego is on "Xtreme Xmas" trying to track Dr. Drakken down at the North Pole. The Possible's take off again for the frozen north to find Ron before Shego does. Both fight it out on jet-powered snowboards as they're being televised worldwide. Kim runs into a snowman modeled after "Hank" and quickly finds Rufus and Ron there building it. Shego and Kim continue to fight each other, and the Xtreme Xmas host tries to exploit their battle for entertainment purposes. But Drakken breaks up the fight and invites them over for Christmas dinner, where Kim kisses Ron under a substitute for mistletoe. None of the Possibles, nor Shego know what to make of the situation, but they all go along with it anyway. However Drakken cheerfully vows to end the truce afer the new year, and "open up a bag of freak on all of you." But for the time being, heroes and villains alike sing the theme to "The Six Tasks of Snowman Hank" in celebration of the holidays.

Trivia

When Kim opens the front door after we hear Ron hit it, there is no doorknob on the outside of it (the side Ron slides down).

When Wade is informing Kim that Ron went to stop Drakken, there is one point where we see him on the screen but his voice is not filtered.

While trudging through the Amazon looking for Ron, Kim has the Kimmunicator strapped to her wrist, checking on the pods position, however in the scene immmediately after, while wading through the water, it's no longer on her wrist.

When the new Kimmunicator is delivered, it's originally in a box, judging by the package. But Kim tears away the brown paper to reveal the Kimmunicator, without opening any box. Originally the package was bigger than the 'municator, so where'd the box go?

When Drakken says "It's just not the same when I rant to myself" the circles under his eyes aren't filled in.

Watch when Ron jumps up onto the wall of Drakken's fortress. Originally, it looks like he goes up a good 6 feet or so. But when it shows him full-length again, after the door swings open, it looks like he's just a few inches off the ground.

Wade said the Kimmunicator was destroyed in the stratosphere...but it wasn't...it was destroyed when Drakken stepped on it, BEFORE the liftoff even occured!

There's a small mistake in this episode's themesong opener. During the line "You can't stop me" (visual: surrounded by the Bebe robots), Kim's hair has a lighter outline to it, which it loses a second later.

A Charlie Brown Christmas: Drakken: All I want is what's coming to me. All I want is my fair share. These are the exact words Lucy said to Charlie Brown in the Charlie Brown special A Charlie Brown Christmas.

A Nightmare Before Christmas: The shot of Ron and Dr. Drakken after they land on earth again has them on top of a peculiar cliff. This cliff resembles the same shape as the one Jack Skeleton stands on in A Nightmare Before Christmas.

Xtreme Xmas: This is the title of an episode of Lizzie McGuire.

A Simple Plan: When Kim looks into the third escape pod, a flock of crows fly out at her. This scene is similar to one from the movie A Simple Plan where Bill Paxton opens the door of a crashed airplane, only to have a flock of crows fly out and attack him. Gary Cole (The voice of Mr. Dr. Possible) also had a role in the movie as the dead pilot's brother.

Star Wars: The shot of Ron and Rufus in the garbage escape pod, looking out at the exploding Drak Force 1, is similar to C3-PO and R2-D2 looking out at a Star Destroyer and the Rebel Blockade Runner that they recently escaped from, in Star Wars: Episode IV. The pods in both Star Wars and KP also show a resemblance.

Jim/Tim: We just re-routed the Middleton power grid...so we wouldn't blow out the whole town like last year. A reference to the National Lampoon film Christmas Vacation where the over-zealous Clark Grizwold decorates his home with 25,000 lights, which results in blacking out the entire town.

Ron: "Land, ho!" Drakken: "No kidding." In Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, when Hermey the elf and company are on the iceberg and they come to land, Yukon (the miner) yells "Land, ho!" and Hermey responds "No kidding".

Drakken: "All I want is what's coming to me. All I want is my fair share!" When Drakken pouts and says this, it's a reference to A Charlie Brown Christmas. Charlie Brown's little sister Sally utters roughly the same line when Charlie Brown comments on her letter to Santa requesting "10's and 20's".

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Snowman Hank is very similar to the narrator snowman in the claymation Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Drakken's Sign: Bah Humbug: Drakken's sign quotes Ebenezer Scrooge's catch-phrase from the Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol".

Drakken: They'll be drinking eggnog, singing carols, eating roast beast, playing with hob nobbles. Dr. Drakken's rant includes some verses from the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Ron: Information, can you get me the number for 911, immediately please! This is a dig at the famous Simpsons quote where Homer yells "What's the number for 911?" Also, 911 is a common emergency number in the USA.

Episode summary

Drakken's Bebe robots (see episode 1.9, "Attack of the Killer Bebes") are back, and they're trying to achieve perfection, this time without Drakken.

While stealing equipment to mass-produce themselves, they realize that they need a human mind to coordinate their collective intelligence. While Kim and Ron are investigating the thefts of the equipment the Bebes have stolen, the robots overhear Kim say that Bonnie Rockwaller is the bossiest person. They decide to make Bonnie their queen.

The Bebes have also perfected their super-speed, so Wade gives Kim a special pair of shoes he's designed that give the wearer super-speed. (Rufus steals the rodent-sized pair of shoes from a test mouse.) He warns her to use them only once they've located the Bebes, but Kim uses them to catch up on all the favors she's promised: cleaning up a park, decorating the gym for a dance, etc.

Once Wade has located the Bebes' lair, Kim and Ron head there via helicopter. But halfway there, time seems to stop to Kim's perception. The shoes have not only made her super-fast, but have accelerated her in time so that she can't be perceived (See "Star Trek" episode 3.11, "Wink of an Eye"). She leaves the helicopter and runs across water to the Bebes' island.

There she discovers Bonnie hooked up to the Bebes' hive computer, and begins to battle the Bebes at super-speed. When Ron finally arrives, he finds Bonnie, but can't help her escape. Then he sees that Rufus still has the super-speed shoes, and tells him to help Kim. He too accelerates fast enough to sabotage the Bebes' assembly line, making the robots imperfect, which makes their logic circuits short out.

Bonnie is freed, and everyone returns back to Middleton in time for the dance. While Bonnie was the Bebe Queen, the robots kidnapped the group Smash Mouth to perform at the dance. Kim, though, can't stop to enjoy the music; she and Rufus try over and over to stop at the gym, but keep overshoot it by thousands of miles. Finally, the concede to dance with themselves at the base of the Statue of Liberty.

Trivia

In this episode, is never revealed how the Bebebots were rebuilt nor why they were working by themselves. This is going to remain speculation since no other episode after this one involves the Bebebots.

In the Hive, when Ron yells, "Run like the wind, little molerat," and Rufus runs off to help Kim, just as Rufus is running past Bonnie, she is nowhere to be seen. This happens for a brief second but in slow motion, or if you have a keen eye, you can see that Bonnie is not in the capsule as Rufus begins to run.

Kim's pink pants are temporarily green as Rufus tries to steal her granola bar at the beginning of the episode.

When the Bebes abduct Bonnie, she is wearing her cheerleading uniform. However, later as she is strapped inside the hive mind, she is wearing her pink top and red skirt.

The music from the Mad Dog Ball can still be heard when Kim and Rufus stop 1,000 miles away from Middleton in San Francisco. Also, they miss it by 1,000 miles before trying again 'even slower' and end up in New York city. This either means Kim and Rufus are really bad at slowing down, or that the United States is less than 2,000 miles wide (it's about 2,600).

After Kim says "Can't the sitch sit?" the waistband on her pants is the same color as her pant legs.

Also seen in the shirt bottom goof, Ron's pants are colored wrong. They're supposed to be green, not brown.

The look of Kim's restraints (the Bebe's extended arms) keeps changing during the conveyer belt ride.

When Kim holds up the mirror to show the Bebe's imperfection, the 'bot reflected in it has an uncolored shirt.

Kim's fishing pole thingy, or whatever it is, disappears as Mom drags her into the kitchen for breakfast.

The Bebes' hairbands, while generally absent this episode, make random appearances throughout -- sometimes the result of reused cels (from "AotKB").

As the Bebes recall their earlier recorded scene of Kim and Ron walking through the mannequin factory, Kim's mission pant legs are shortened during her "Bonnie is so bossy" speech (the animators probably confused them with her blue capris).

As Kim lies on the ground under the pile of people in the hallway, her hand is a darker color as she answers the Kimmunicator.

Rufus was in Ron's pocket at the time of the pile-up. But when it shows everyone, Rufus crawls out from the middle and triumphantly holds up Kim's (granola?) bar, without any shots in between to show him running from the pocket to the pile.

When Rufus cringes after the tickets trip everyone up, Ron's shirt behind him is colored wrong. It's got black at the bottom like his usual outfit, but there is white seen above and there's a notch, like the shirt he's wearing at the time.

Kim goes on this mission without Ron's help at all

Now we know why "Come On, Come On" is on the KP soundtrack.

This marks the first time someone (namely Smash Mouth's Steve Harwell) plays themselves in a "KP" episode.

Star Trek: Another allusion to Star Trek: The Bebe bots are much like the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager. Both the Borg and the Bebes have a "hive mind" contolled by a queen, and both are on a quest for perfection ("Bebes must be per-fect"). The only difference is that while the Bebes are solely robotic, the Borg are cyborgs, and have organic and technological components.

Sonic the Hedgehog: The superspeed shoes Kim and Rufus wear are very similar to the red sneakers worn by Sega mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, whose trademark is moving at supersonic speed.

Britina Dolls: The Britina Dolls are either a parody of Barbie Dolls or dolls of teen singers, such as Shakira or Hilary Duff.

Kim: "I'm sure the shoes will come off... eventually." The whole idea of Kim not being able to get the shoes off is taken from the classic story, "The Red Dancing Shoes." In the story, a girl gets a pair of red ballet slippers stuck on her feet and must wander the earth til they fall off. Coincidentally(or not?), both pairs of shoes were red.

Star Trek: The plot device of Kim, Rufus, and the Bebes existing at hyperspeed invisible to everyone else is reminicent of the Star Trek original series episode "Wink of an Eye."

Episode summary

The annual talent competition is coming up, and Bonnie is certain that she'll win, seeing as all of her older siblings have won the contest the last several years in a row. Kim signs up to prove her wrong, her talent being singing. There's just one problem: her voice crackles and she goes completely tone deaf when attempting the high notes.

Meanwhile, Drakken has utilized motion-capture technology to create a "cyber clone" of Wade, enabling him to have Kim Possible do his bidding without her ever knowing about it. The first nefarious task he has her complete is to steal Professor Dementor's teleportation device (which works sort of like a telephone), but he forgets to have her steal the adapter, so he sends her back, the whole time masquerading as Wade. As Kim is about to deliver the adapter, the real Wade hacks back into his own system and Kim discovers Drakken's plot, but Shego sneaks up from behind and knocks her out. Drakken locks her in a chest, welds it shut, places it at the bottom of a very deep, water-filled chasm along with a shark and an octopus, and freezes the surface of the water. This turn of events causes Kim to be late to the talent show, so she asks Ron to stall.

Kim escapes with the help of a laser ring given to her by Wade, but the ring comes off when she has to do battle with the shark. She tries again and again to smash through the ice, but it's a futile effort. Then Kim hits the high note for the first time in her life, shattering the ice. By now, the authorities have captured Drakken (it isn't that much of a "secret" hideout), and Kim uses the teleportation device to get to the talent show, where she sings "Say The Word." Mr. Barkin walks up to announce the winner, who is...Ron Stoppable.

Trivia

When Ron performs his "fire breath" trick, he accidentally burns the judges' hair, but after approximately thirty seconds, the judges are shown again, only with their hair back in full.

Interestingly, this is only the second and most recent time Kim has sung during an episode. This is in sharp contrast with Christy Carlson Romano's more frequent performances as Ren on the show Even Stevens.

The close captioning refers to Drakken as 'Draken'.

When Drakken says "Imagine it, Shego!" his collar is blue.

When Kim dials a number on the teleportation module, the gold thing disappears.

When Kim told Bonnie she was rehearsing, Kim was on the stage. But when Bonnie played the film, all of the sudden, Kim is in a seat next to Ron. And when Kim told Bonnie "That was a long time ago," Kim is once again standing.

When Kim is tying up Drakken, she's wearing two gloves when she's only supposed to be wearing one.
Near the end of Kim's talent show performance, as she sings "anytime, anywhere", you can see she has both gloves on. In the next shot, she's back to only one.

Kim's left glove makes another appearance -- this time for a single cel -- as she spins to face Drakken's shark in the "bottomless" chasm.
When Kim and Ron hop into the boat outside of Dementor's lair, Ron is wearing no shirt. After a shot of Rufus starting the motor, he's suddenly wearing a shirt under his lifejacket.

During Kim's song, Ron is shown still wearing his gi. But once it's announced that he wins, he is drawn out on stage in the outfit with the green pants, without much time to change in between.
When Ron accepts the trophy, his black and white sneakers are colored all gray, like his mission shoes.
During the talent show, Ron burns off the judges' hair with Bueno Nacho Diablo Sauce. The next time it shows them, it's back!

When Shego lights her hands up and gets ready to go and retrieve the adapter for the teleporter, her eyes briefly overlap her hair.

During the locker scene after the theme song, Ron's turtleneck is colored red when it shows him from the back.
The bottom of Ron's shirt is red in the very beginning of the air duct scene.

Also seen in the turtleneck goof shot: The bottom of Ron's shirt is red.

If Kim wanted Ron to stall for her until she could escape Drakken's trap, why didn't he and Rufus sing "Naked Mole Rap"? That song is nearly five minutes long, and it would have been another way to use a song from the sountrack album. That way, when they won, it would have been even more satisfying, at least to some viewers who like that song.

When Kim and Ron are in the hall right before they get messaged by Drakkon/Fake Wayd, they talk about the talent show being tomorrow. Then, Drakkon/Fake Wayd tells them to get the cable from Dementor, and says it's "quite urgent". And, when they're at Drakkon's Lair, they say the talent show's starting soon and Ron takes off. Time mess-up?

How does Bonnie have video of Kim's inability to hit the high notes but Ron, who has been her friend since PreK, doesn't know about it?

As kim steals the teleportation module, she throws her backpack into the water to become a raft. In the next shot, she is wearing her backpack while sitting on the raft.

Ron delays the talent competition for Kim with a variety of improved acts and wins. This is later mentioned in Rappin' Drakken.

"Say the Word," written by Danny Jacob and Janis Liebhart.

Kim sings "Say the Word" (though not the version heard on the KP soundtrack) for the talent competition.

Transportulator: Despite what he may think, Dr. Dementor is not the first to create this device. The precursor device is the "Modemizer", created by Professor Norton Nimnul almost 20 years ago in the Rescue Rangers episode A Fly in the Ointment.

Thunderball: Drakken's plan mirrors Largo's trap in Thunderball In Hidden Talent: Dr. Drakken puts Kim in a box under water and seals off the top of the water with ice, sharks are then released into the water through trap doors. Also, Kim uses her class ring from Wade as a re-breather to swim to safety.

In James Bond 007 Thunderball: James is fighting with a henchman when they both fall into a swimming pool. Largo, the villain activates a cover that slides over the water trapping them. he then opens a trap door to his shark tank which then lets the sharks into the pool who then eat the henchman. 007 escapes by using the rebreather disguised as a cigar case that "Q" gave to him earlier in the movie. (he swims through the door the sharks came through, rather than breaking out of the top of the water though)

M. C. Honey: Reference to the 80s rapper M. C. Hammer, who popularised the "baggy pants" look. He dropped out of the scene in the late 90s, along with a bankruptcy filing. He's currently an ordained minister and can be seen in the reality show The Surreal Life.

Marcel Marceau: The costumes worn by Ron and Rufus while doing their mime act (walking against the wind) are replicas of the costume worn by famous mime Marcel Marceau (the wind routine his trademark routine).

Michael Jackson: During Kim's performance, she has on only one glove, much like the way Michael Jackson used to perform wearing one glove.

Swan Lake: The Swan Tutu is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ballet Swan Lake.

Saturday Night Live: Drakken's visual presentation reflects a late-ninties SNL skit "Lease With An Option To Kill" wherein the villain (Christopher Walken) shows Bond the manner of his execution on several poster-board sheets of paper.

Björk: Bonnie's swan tutu mirrors Björk's much-lampooned fashion disaster at the 2001 Academy Awards.

The Matrix: Kim teleporting through the phone is a reference to The Matrix. In the movie, "operators" could get unplugged people out of the Matrix by establishing a phone connection and having the person who was escaping hold the phone up to his/her ear.

Mission: Impossible: Kim and Ron lowering down on ropes over a pressure-sensitive floor is a nod to Mission: Impossible.

Return to Wannaweep
Episode: 19 (season) / 40 (show) / 43 (production order) First Aired: January 16, 2004 Product Code: 222
Writers: Matthew Negrete Director: David Block Animation Production by Starburst Animation.

Episode summary

Cheer squads and mascots from several high schools are invited to a cheer camp, to be held at a college campus. But due to plumbing problems, the camp is relocated to Camp Gottagrin. But immediately upon stepping off the bus, Ron discovers Gottagrin is really Camp Wannaweep, the nightmarish camp he was forced to go to years before, and also the site of where one of his fellow campers had mutated and trapped him and the cheer squad the year before.

That camper, Gil Moss, was taken away to be cured of his mutation and re-integrated with society. He's been cured, going to public high school, and is the mascot for his high school, whose cheer squad is also at Gottagrin. Gil befriends Ron, but Ron is dubious of Gil's good intentions. He follows Gil one night, thinking to catch him in something sinister, but instead spoils Gil's surprise of his new horned-toad mascot costume.

The cheer campers turn against Ron, throwing rotten veggies at him at every opportunity. But then, Ron's paranoia turns out to be spot on: Gil has actually been searching for the last grotto of toxic lake water. Finding it, he becomes Gill again, and attacks cheer camp and the other camps all around the lake.

Ron takes a page from his victory over Monkey First, and dives into the toxic water too, becoming a mutant beaver. Ron and Gill fight all about the lakeside, ending up at clown camp. The two of them end up in the catch net for the trapeze tent, where Kim and Bonnie catapult up to the tie ropes and capture Gill.

Trivia

During practice at Middleton High, Kim tells Bonnie to jump first onto the pyramid, so that Kim can take the top spot. When we see the pyramid, there are already five cheerleaders forming it and only the top spot is free. Where was Bonnie supposed to jump?

When Ron says "It's the only way.", his mouth doesn't move.

Not really that much of a goof but-- In the closed captioning, Gil is refered to as "Gill", even though he has gone back to one l.

At camp, when Kim falls into the suitcases, only one is blue, and the rest are brown. When she is zoomed in, there are several blue.

When Ron is changed into a big mutant beaver, he was barely wearing clothes, which either would have been ripped upon his transformation or dissolved in the goo. Yet when he changed back to human form, all his clothes return intact. Considering the number of times he's been stripped down in this series, it's surprising he wasn't seen in just his boxers in this episode.

There are several scenes where there are no numbers on the cabins.

When they show Gill walking up to the cabin Ron hides in, they make a point of showing his slimy footprints in the closeup. However, in the aerial shot, he doesn't leave any footprints at all.

When Ron smiles after picking up the camp phone, there's an unexplained line under his mouth. It's too far down to be a bottom lip, so it's more than likely a missed cleanup line.

When Bonnie's first moving in to Cabin 9, she has two red bags, one of which she tosses on the top bunk, and the other in front of her. Once Kim walks up to her, the second red bag is suddenly nowhere to be found.

During the scene at camp, when the Middleton cheerleading team is demonstrating their cheer, we see Kim attempt to land on the shoulders of Bonnie and a blonde-haired cheerleader at the top of a pyramid formation, only to slip and fall. As she falls, the cheerleader beside Bonnie is raven-haired. But when the scene cuts back to Bonnie asking Kim, rather sarcastically, if she's ok, Bonnie is at the top of the pyramid, with no one beside her.

In Ron's flashback to his first encounter with Gill in 'Sink or Swim', the clip where he says "Not really, but you know I think I'd remember," is the clip where he's supposed to say, "How about we sing the Camp Wannaweep friendship song?"

Unless you count A Sitch in Time, this is the second time two episodes of KP(this one and Hidden Tallent) were aired in the order of their production numbers.

A Few Good Men: Ron: You can't handle the truth! This line spoken by Ron line to Kim is a quote from the movie/play titled A Few Good Men.

Gil: At last! After searching night after night, I have finally found my magic Mucka! This is a reference to Mecca, the international meeting place for followers of Islam. It is a place of great religious significance for Muslims, just like the grotto has great significance for Gill in this episode.

The Parent Trap: When Kim and Bonnie are pulling pranks on each other, it is similar to the twins pulling pranks on each other in the film The Parent Trap (which also took place at a camp).

Frog Fancy: A homage from the real magazine title as "Cat Fancy". a magazine about cats.

Cheerleaders--The First Evil: Bonnie getting into the shower and screaming recalls one of the R.L Stine book, "Cheerleaders--The First Evil", where in the shower room, cheerleader Bobbi Corcoran is locked in the shower room and is killed when scorching hot water comes out of the faucet.

Ron: I'm keeping my friends close and my enemies closer. An old expression used most famously in the "Godfather" movies.

Ron: Creature from the muck lagoon. Ron puts a spin on the title of the horror movie classic The Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Ron: The game's afoot, little buddy. "The game's afoot" was uttered by famous detective Sherlock Holmes in the short story "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange."

Psycho: Bonnie getting into the shower and screaming mimics the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho. The same score is even used. edit »Ron: "You want proof? You can't handle the proof!"

This is a reference to the famous scene in A Few Good Men between Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson. Jack Nicholson's character has taken the stand in a military hearing, and asks Tom Cruise's character "You want answers?" To which Cruise replies: I want the TRUTH! And Jack Nicholson's response: You can't handle the truth!

Episode summary

Kim and Ron go to Go City to visit the newest and largest Bueno Nacho. While there, a mysterious villain - Aviarius - seemingly attacks Kim, but is really after the Bueno Nacho manager, who is secretly the super-strong hero Hego.

Aviarius's weapon was stealing Hego's super-strength, but it bestowed them upon Kim. Getting home, Kim relishes her new powers until Hego finds her and tells her what happened. They return to his HQ - Go Tower - which only Kim can open with her powers. There they find out that Hego and his four siblings all received powers from a mysterious meteorite (forming the Go Team), and that his sister is Shego! Hego's brother Mego arrives, powerless, to report that their twin brothers are missing. Kim decides to enlist Shego in helping find her lost little brothers.

When they storm Aviarius's lair, he gets the drop on them and steals all the Go Team powers. But in the ensuing fight, Shego gets his weapon and begins using all the powers at the same time to fight everyone. Dr. Drakken, worried about Shego, finds the lair and distracts Shego into losing the weapon and releasing the Go powers back to her brothers.

Trivia

When Kim falls to the ground after the giant pink flamingo cuts her grappling rope, as she is falling, her hair is parted on the wrong side and she is holding a device of some kind. This shot was reused from Kimitation Nation, after Shego cuts Kim's rope when Kim grabs the button off her.

When Shego throws her green whatever stuff at Hego her brothers Mego and the twins say "Super bad!"
"Yeah Totally Evil!"
"Evil!"
Mego has one of the twins voices and one of the twins has Mego's voice.

When the camera zooms in on Kim's reaction to the Giant Condor's entrance, her hair is parted on the wrong side.

When Kim forces Condor to crash, the Salsa Parade is destroyed.

However, when Avarius leaves, the Salsa Parade is still intact (on the left side of the screen).

When Kim and Shego fall on the floor after Aviarius drains their powers, the colours on Shego's suit are reversed.

Aviarius says "I could have used all of the powers at once?!" Well he was, he was multipling and shrinking and stuff all at once, just like Shego.

In the Battle with Aviarius kim fires her grappling hook, the hook looks like sort of spear shape. Then in the next frame the spear returns to the familiar grappling hook.

When it shows the whole group inside the jet as it rises up through the tower, Ron has no gloves on.

When Kim shot her grappler around The Flamingo of Doom, Kim's shade of lipstick is red. But when she lands, her lipstick is once again orange.

The black that tops Shego's collar is missing for most, if not all, of this episode.

Ron's gloves are missing when the hummingbirds are released, and again when Rufus slams into his face.

On the sidewalk, before the theme song, the bottom of Ron's shirt is red.

Changed Premise: We discover that Shego's glowing hands are not the result of "clawed gloves that shoot out destructive rays" as reported on Kim's website at DisneyChannel.com, but are in fact super powers bestowed by the multicolor meteorite that gave the Go Team their powers.

The button on Shego's belt turns green for about two frames after she says, "Just do your computer thing, Nerd Linger."

Will Friedle, who voices Ron, used to star on "Boy Meets World" with Ben Savage, brother of Fred Savage (Wego), who even appeared in one episode of BMW.

Batman: Shego's reverse over-the-shoulder punch of the condor is a cool move that she obviously swiped from Batman.

Team Go Color Scheme (Green, red, blue, purple): The color scheme pays homage to the four Links from The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures for Nintendo Gamecube.

X-Men: The plane the team uses is a repainted SR-71A Blackbird similar to the blackbirds the X-Men use.

Aviarius: FLAMINGO OF DOOM The villain Aviarius has many similarities to the title character from the short-lived (but highly praised) Nickelodeon series, "Invader Zim". Both characters are played by Richard Horvitz and both characters sound and act very much alike. It's almost as if Zim were playing the role of The Vulture from Spider-man. The biggest clue that Avarius is some kind of tribute to Zim is when Aviarius refers to the flamingo as a "FLAMINGO OF DOOM." The word "doom" was used excessively in the "Invader Zim" series, especially the first episode.

Ron: That is the second largest flamingo I have ever seen! This is a reference to the old TV series Get Smart, in which the line "That's the second biggest (whatever) I've ever seen" was one of Maxwell Smart's (Don Adams) trademark lines.

Character: Mego: Mego was also a toy company, making 8" and 12" posable action figures which ran from 1971-1982.

The Empire Strikes Back: Kim's attempt to trip the Flamingo of Doom by wrapping up its legs with her grappling hook is the third time this series has made this allusion to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (and the first time it has failed to work).

Power Pack: Team Go is in fact a reference to many superhero teams of the past, but perhaps the most prominent are the Power Pack (a group of siblings fighting crime with alien-granted powers) and the various Japanese sentai teams with their color coded outfits, and (more often then not) single female member.

The Avengers: Mego's powers are excactly the same as Giant/Antman of the Avengers.

Teen Titans: Actually, Go Tower bears more resemblence to the "T" shaped tower utilized by the Teen Titans, rather than the old tower once used by the Fantastic Four. For instance, Go Tower, like the one used by the Titans, is on a small island in the middle of the bay, rather than in the middle of the city, as both the Baxter Building and Four Freedoms Plaza (both used by the Fantastic Four) were.

Ron: That is the second largest flamingo I have ever seen! A variation on a running gag in Lucasarts' "Monkey Island" series of computer games, sparked by a line in the first: "That's the second biggest monkey head I've ever seen!" Appropriate, given Ron's fear of monkeys.

Hego: Those powers are a great responsibility. This bears strong resemblance to the classic line from Amazing Fantasy #15 (The first appearance of Spider-Man) and subsequently repeated in several Spider-Man issues and the Spider-Man movie, first coined by the great Stan Lee, "With Great Power must come...Great Responsibility."

The Vulture: The villain Aviarius is very similar to the Spider-man villain The Vulture.

Ron: Were you, like, some kind of fire guy? Ron references the Fantastic Four superhero Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch.

Fantastic Four: The Go Tower is very similar to the Fantastic Four tower, right down to the special access lock.

Ron: Ah, Go City. If you can make it here, well, then... y'know, you've... made it here. Which is pretty good! Ron spoofs the popular Frank Sinatra song "New York, New York": "If I can make it there / I'll make it anywhere!"

Superman: Hego (when dressed normally) bears a striking resemblance to Superman's alter-ego Clark Kent. In fact, Hego's character is a parody of Superman's idealism.

Kim: spinning through rock): Ooh! You know...I do not recommend that.

A dig at Superman, who uses the same method of tunneling through rock but never seems to get dizzy.

X-Men: Wego's power is very similar to that of X-Men character Mutiple Man. given the style of animation, it is also a reference to Multi-Man of the 1960's Hanna Barbera cartoon; The Impossibles.

Episode summary

When Kim and Ron again must stop Monkey Fist's latest plans, Kim accidentily takes an ancient, magical necklace that makes her undergo phenominal phyiscal changes.

While, Kim begins to turn into a monkey. Ron and Wade must figure out how to change her back, before she is a monkey for ever.

Fortunately, her new ape-bilities help her become top banana at the Regional Cheer-Off.

Trivia

Kim: This ugly. When Kim says this line to Wade, her mouth is not moving.

At the end, When Kim is pointing to the picture on the wall in front of her, the same picture can be seen next to her.

When Kim is walking on all fours as a monkey, she's supporting her weight on her knuckles. Monkeys walk on their open palms.

As Bonnie shows Kim the hair that just popped out of her forehead in the compact, the monkey tattoo is missing.

When the Mad Dogs were performing it wasn't the same routine as they practiced. edit »

Clips from this episode were used on Family Channel for several months. Ron: Wade, you can't fight magic with science! A dig at Uncle of "Jackie Chan Adventures," who always says "Magic must always defeat magic."

Ron: Great googly moogly! "Great googly moogly" (var. of "googamooga") can be traced back to 1961's "Going Down Slow" by Howlin' Wolf, though Frank Zappa is largely credited with popularizing the phrase.

Ron: Kim's gone over to the Monkey-Side. This sounds like on Star Wars going over to that "Dark Side."

Episode summary

In trying to defeat Kim Possible (who has thwarted him several times in a row), Dr. Drakken tries reading teen magazines for a clue. He gets the idea that embarrassment is the key. So he mixes a compound from a rare orchid and sprays her with it.

Now, whenever she becomes embarrassed, a small vortex forms in her abdomen and starts to make her fade from existence.

Ron and Wade (the latter via robot) go to South America to find an antidote, leaving Kim at her house. But Josh Mankie calls and asks her out on a date.

She goes, but keeps getting embarrassed, no thanks to two Embarassment Ninjas that Drakken hired to speed along Kim's demise, as well as her twin brothers. Just as the last of him is about to disappear, Ron arrives with the antidote, and brings Kim back to full existence.

Trivia

According to the "tweebs", Kim would start writing in her diary at 10:01 and they would sneak a peak at her diary at 10:02; Kim would obviously be writing about such an important date for much longer than 1 minute.

When Shego says, "Pimple Punch?" the green part of her collar is missing.

When Shego hands Drakken the magazine regarding embarassment, she was reading the front cover, but when Drakken has it, he's reading the back.

When Drakken and Shego walk into the store at the end of the intro segment a few salmon-colored fish drop to the floor, yet in a wider shot a moment later the fish are blue.

Ron claims to have never been embarrassed. However, in "Bueno Nacho" when Shego asks him if his tie is a clip-on, he blushes.

Right before reaching the rapids, the camera on top of the Wade-Bot disappears.

The Possible family living room has switched locations with the kitchen. This is not, however, the first time it has happened (ex. DotS).

When Drakken and Shego are in the mall, leaning over the railing and watching Kim trip down the stairs, some of the colours on Shegos suit are reversed.

When Kim and Ron walk to the mall, Kim's hair is parted on the wrong side due to a flipped cell.

Clips from this episode were used on Family Channel for several months.

Kim: I had to get the thing from the guy at the place. Rueben Tishkoff says nearly this exact line ("We go back a long ways, and I still owe you from the thing with the guy in the place, and I'll never forget it.") in Ocean's Eleven. Incidentally, in the movie, Rueben was played by Elliot Gould, who also does the voiceover for Mr. Stoppable.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me: Drakken's Laser to Destroy Earth is similar to Dr. Evil's plan in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

Jenga: Ron's game of pulling out nachos from the stack without knocking it over is played in exactly the same manner as the game Jenga.

The Emperor's New Groove: Ron, Rufus, and Wade-bot being chased to a cliff by a jaguar is reminiscent of Kuzco being chased to a cliff by multiple jaguars in The Emperor's New Groove.

Episode summary

Dr. Drakken needs help in using a stolen DNA genome sequencer to create ferocious beasts, so he romances DNAmy (or at least pretends to) in order to secure her assistance. At first DNAmy only wants to use the sequencer to create cute and cuddly creatures, but eventually Drakken persuades her to create something more intimidating.

Meanwhile, Kim doesn't want to work with Ron on a science project because she always winds up doing all the work. Instead, she winds up partnered with Justine, a science genius who considers herself so superior to Kim that she wants to do all the work and have Kim stay away. Ron, in turn, is assigned to work with Monique.

Monique doesn't want to be stuck doing all the work, but she finds it hard to get Ron to do anything since, unlike Monique, Ron doesn't care about grades.

Trivia

The stripe at the bottom of Ron's shirt turns red twice when he and Monique are firing the donuts. edit » Kim's hair is again missing its lines in the vault-opening scene during the opening title (at least when this ep aired in Canada). It is merely a block of solid color on her head.

When DNAmy walks down the stairs to her lab and says "Watch your step!" her mouth doesn't move.

When Kim and Justine present the continuum disrupter to Mr. Barkin, the machine's control box has a gap (opposite the switch's "off" position) that wasn't there the night before.

When Barkin flips the the continuum disrupter's switch, an aerial comes out and points to our right. When Barkin says "come on!" the aerial is pointing out the window.
Also, when the aerial comes out, the disrupter makes the same sound as when it emitted a beam the night before; this time, no beam is emitted.

When Shego is jumping towards Kim in the fight scene, Kim's pants turn black.

This episode first aired during the Kim Possible Friends and Foes Marathon, at least in the U.S.

First released (in the states) as part of "Kim Possible: The Secret Files" on DVD/VHS.

DNAmy: You have got to be the biggest meanie in the world! Dr.Drakken: Ah, so you have heard of me! This is a direct spoof of Pirates of the Carribean, in which Captain Jack Sparrow says exactly the same thing.

Ron: Come on, trust me. Ron grabbing Monique with the line, "Trust me," is remenicient of Aladdin in the Disney movie Aladdin grabbing Jasmine and asking her if she trusts him.

Drakken: The doctor is making a house call.(growls) When Drakken growls (like a tiger) it's an imitation of Bob Hope growling at a pretty girl walking by (a habit of playboy 'wolves' in the 50's imitating Bob imitating 'wolves'.

DNAmy: "Honey Bunny" and "Sugar Booger" The phrases "Honey Bunny" and "Sugar Booger" both appear in the lyrics to the Carl Perkins song "Lend Me Your Comb." Also the armed robbers in the restaurant scenes in "Pulp Fiction" refer to each other as "Honey Bunny."

Jurassic Park: The footstep vibrations in the pool of cheese is an homage to a scene in Jurassic Park, where the vibrations from a large dinosaur walking can be seen in a glass of water.

Episode summary

Kim and her female friends are very into a boy band - The Oh Boyz, so the next week her mother buys her tickets for their upcoming concert. But to Mrs. Dr. Possible's disappointment, the Oh Boyz are not in anymore. Ron, however, is into them, and excitedly escorts Kim to the event.

When they get there, they're the only members of the audience. Ron take the initiative and goes backstage to meet the group. Meanwhile, the Oh Boyz agent is cringing because the tour is losing money quickly; the Oh Boyz have a iron-clad contract that he can't break.

Then out of the blue - and to the agents delight - Senor Senior, Sr. and Jr. come in a helicopter and kidnap the Oh Boyz and Ron. (The Seniors kidnap the Oh Boyz to ransom for connections to make Junior a teen singing sensation.) Senor Senior, Sr. calls the Oh Boyz agent to make his demands, but keeps getting dismissed, since now the tour isn't losing money. But Kim hears the Seniors over the phone, and goes to rescue Ron and The Boyz.

While imprisoned, the Oh Boyz figure a way out of their prison cell. Kim attacks the Seniors from one side, the Oh Boyz and Ron from the other, and the Seniors are captured. Back outside, the Oh Boyz fire their agent and hire Rufus to take over. And in prison, Junior has his dream come true and becomes a teen singer, holding a concert for the captive audience.

Trivia

A few regular extras are seen in the jail where Junior performs.

If you watch Junior when he's signing his autograph you'll see he's left handed.

After Kim and Ron got to the arena before the conversation between Benny and Roland, Ron sat on the left and Kim on the right. But after the talk, it was the other way around.

When Senor Senior Sr. turns up the power on his laser, he turns the knob left, even though to the right is the traditional way of turning up power.

The stripe on Ron's shirt turns red a couple of times when he and the Oh Boyz get out of the cage. edit » In this episode it shows Kim writing with her right hand when Mrs. Possible shows her the Oh Boyz tickets. Yet in "Sick Day" Kim writes with her left hand unless she's ambidextrous.

"I Want It My Way" was also sung by a group called The Bravos in the episode "Exchange".

When the episode premiered on Disney Channel 04/02/04 at 5:00pm ET/ 4:00pm CT, the closing credits for The Proud Family were run by mistake.

When all the girls are crowding around Ron at the end, for one shot, Monique's eyes aren't full, and appear as they did in Season 1.

Second time Earl Boen is the voice of Señor Senior, Sr., the first time being in Coach Possible. Ron: He who controls the remote, controls the future. (Ron dives for the remote, but Kim gets it first) Correction. She, who controls the remote, controls the future. This is a reference to George Orwell's 1984. In the book there is a saying, "Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the future controls the past." Ron's line is a twist of this classic statement.

Kim: I don't get it, though. No one likes the 'Oh Boyz'. Why would someone want to kidnap them?? They aren't even popular. Wade: They weren't popular. They haven't had this much publicity since Nicky Nick broke up with Britina. This is obviously a reference to the breakup between Nick Carter and Britney Spears.

Homestar Runner: Nicky Nick's red shirt looks alot like Homestar's shirt from the Homestar website (Red with a white star)

Boy Bands: The Oh Boyz is a combination of most recent boy bands. Song parodies from N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys acentuate this. The names of the Oh Boyz were derived from actual names of guys from pop bands. (Nicky Nick=Nick Carter) Rather than make many boy bands, the producers decided to put all of the boy bands into one large boy band, to show the incoming- and outgoing- of teen fads.

Bye Bye Bye: The Oh Boyz song "Hello Hello Hello" parodies the Nsync song "Bye Bye Bye".

Boy Band Names: The name "Oh Boyz" comes from the exclamation of something lame or embarrassing or something that's very predictable. Here it's been modified to look like a boy band name.

Name: Oh Boyz: The name "Oh Boyz" is a combination of boy bands "O Town" and "Backstreet Boys".

Backstreet Boys: Most Oh Boyz song titles parody those of the Backstreet Boys: "I Want It My Way" = "I Want It That Way", "Quit Playin' Games With My Head" = "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)", "The Shape of My Head" = "The Shape of My Heart"

SSJ: Father, is that my Honolulu Kyle? Honolulu Kyle is the "KP" equivalent of Malibu Ken, posable fashion plate boyfriend to Mattel's Malibu Barbie doll.

O Boyz: (singing) "Hello, hello, hello, can you hear me now?..." This refers to the catch-phrase derived from the Verizon Wireless commercials.

Introduces: The Oh Boyz! as well as some of their songs like "Hello! Hello! Hello!

Episode summary

Kim and Ron are asked to guard Ray-X, a top-secret ray device. But just before going to the lab, Kim catches a cold from her two little brothers.

While Kim is guarding Ray-X, Drakken and Shego attempt - and succeed - to steal Ray-X, but not before Shego catches the cold from Kim. Drakken needs help with Shego sick, so he contracts with Duff Killigan to help him exploit Ray-X. Meanwhile, Ron heads to Drakken's lair and retrieves Ray-X, but catches Shego's cold.

Drakken comes down with the cold, and Killigan then hires a temp to take his place. They then re-steal Ray-X back from Ron.

Back at the lair, Killigan is now sick, just leaving the temp, who is relishing his new career. With everyone else sick, Jim and Tim, now well, go back to get the Ray-X. The temp catches the tweebs, but Kim and Ron free them. They all catch the temp as he tries to "quit", but the Ray-X machine is damaged.

Kim and Ron return the Ray-X to the scientists, apologizing for letting it get damages. Out of curiosity, they ask what Ray-X was supposed to do. "Cure the common cold," they reply.

Trivia

The scene in the soap opera that Duff Killigan was watching was the exact same scene from Grudge Match, when Ron is watching the movie.

Christy Romano seems to have difficulty maintaining Kim's stuffed-up tone throughout her reading and alternates between nasal and denasal tones periodically.

When Ron walks up the stairs into Kim's room, the black stripe at the bottom of his shirt is missing. It returns in the next shot.

When Shego called in sick it looked like she was flesh colored instead of greenish/paleish.

This is a half-length episode and first aired with The Truth Hurts.

Drakken: I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it! Taken, word-for-word, from the lyrics to The Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited".

Writers: Matthew Negrete and Thomas Hart Director: David Block Animation Production by Starburst Animation.

Episode summary

When trying to save a scientist from Dr. Drakken’s secret arctic base, a stray hit from Dr. Drakken's "Truth Ray" forces Kim to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

So after being struck by the truth ray, Kim and Ron say what they really mean. Ron is enjoying his new truth mojo, while Kim threatens her father’s career.

Trivia

During the episode while the cheerleading interview's going on Kim says she can't sleep without her Pandaroo. But other episodes when you see her in bed there is no Pandaroo.

Kim said two lies while she was under the truth ray. The first was that she could tell a lie and the second was that aliens could see her dad's partner's hairpiece was fake from space. Of course, this second was technically an exaggeration for comic effect, not really a lie. And it seems the truth ray not only keeps you from lying but robs you of all sense of tact and decorum!

In the beginning of this episode Kim has her yellow outfit. (Yellow T-shirt with blue star, and blue jeans). However, after she saves the day and finishes cheerleading practice she leaves school wearing her green tank-top and shorter blue jeans. It is possible that she might have had a change of clothes at school, but I wanted to point this out.

When Kim and Ron are in the jet on the way to Drakken's ice lair, both have white straps over their shoulders, and as they eject, these straps disappear from Ron.

As Ron says, "I know it's not the coolest thing to admit," his mouth cel overlaps his left hand twice.

Ron's mouth disappears briefly during his reaction to Kim after he asks "Nana?" on the phone.

This is a half-length episode and first aired with Sick Day.

Clips from this episode were used on Family Channel for several months.

Kim: The color of my hair is greeeeeee...red. This is a reference to the Jim Carrey movie Liar, Liar, as is the rest of the episode. This quote is similar to the one in the movie, where Carrey's character looks at a blue pen and tries to say its red, with the same effect, except his went on for several minutes, until his posessed hand wrote that the pen was blue all over his face. Some others include that in both, they are in that condition for one day and that both Kim and Carrey try the tactic of covering their mouth, and both fail.

Episode: 26 (season) / 47 (show) / 36 (production order) First Aired: May 7, 2004 Product Code: 216
Writers: Thomas Hart Director: Steve Loter Animation Production by Starburst Animation.

Episode summary

It's Mother's Day in Middleton and Kim's promise that she'd spend the day with her mom "no matter what" leads to Dr. Possible coming along on a mission!

Meanwhile Ron cleans out his garage for his mother.

But Dr. Drakken also has Mother's Day issues. So when they go to stop Drakken at his lastest plot they find Mrs. Lipsky is with Drakken.

So Drakken, on his part, is forced to deal with the presence of his mother while he attempts to steal a batch of Syntho-Plasma.

Trivia

When we hear screams coming from off camera, the closed caption reads, "Wade Screaming," but it's clearly Dr. Dad Possible who is doing the screaming because he's running from the twin's mutant bees.

In the scene before Kim says "I know, isn't it?" Kims eye overlaps her nose.

When Kim and her mom were on top of the train, they switch places.

When Drakken says to his mom "No, don't touch that!" his belt disappears.

When Mrs Possible zaps Drakken's goons, they've swapped positions from where they standing prior to being zapped.

When Kim shuts the door on Drakken's lair in the begining, the clasp on Ron's belt is not filled in.

When Kim gives her Mom five, a triangular area of hair is missing between her arm and the rest of her body.

Dexter's Lab: The big red "D" on Drakken's entrance door is reminiscent of Dexter's big red "D" logo on all of his stuff.

Tetris: During one of Ron's garage scenes, the background music from Tetris can be heard.

Talk Radio: In this episode, Drakken, whose real name is Drew Lipsky, poses as a talk-radio doctor. That's awfully close to Dr. Drew Pinsky, a real-life talk-radio doctor (on shows like "Loveline").

Tetris: The boxes falling down when Ron is cleaning out the garage is remnent of the video game Tetris, where boxes come down from out of nowhere.

Episode summary

1980's-style, glam-rocking Motor Ed and his gang of mechanics are on a global spree of hijacking sophisticated automotive parts. Meanwhile, Kim, Ron, and Rufus meet Felix Renton, a paraplegic boy whose mother is a robotics expert and a new co-worker of Kim's dad.

With his tricked-out wheelchair, Felix can do everything but walk, yet Kim can't seem to help feeling self-conscious about saying the wrong things in front of him. Nevertheless when all four try to trap Motor Ed with rumors of a fake auto part, his gang kidnaps Ron, and Felix joins Kim en route to the junkyards of New Jersey to get him back.

Trivia

When Kim's dad is about to say "General Tso's chicken" he says "Naked Mole Rat", but when it shows Rufus eating it he is eating noodles. There aren't any noodles in General Tso's chicken.

Kim uses her left hand to hold the chopsticks when she's eating with Ron and her dad at the kitchen table.

The "turbonic charger valve" case seems to change color from a light grey to a distinct green before and after the wind tunnel scene.

the text on the box that supposedly contains the "turbonic charger valve" moves from the center to the right during the wind tunnel scene.

When Kim and Ron are on the ride, you can see that Kim starts off in her pink outfit. Her outfit then switches to her turquoise and black one, and then back to her pink one.

More of a nitpick than a goof... Motor Ed starts off "playing" air guitar as a left-handed person would, but then later on, he switches to doing it as a righty would in at least one shot.

When Kim is giving chase riding the ATV, she uses her right hand to talk to Wade and throw the comb. Pretty stupid since throttle is on the right.

At one point when Kim is standing in front of the Tilt-a-Whirl her hair is reversed- a flipped cell sort of thing.

When Kim tells Motor Ed "Quit calling me 'red.' Seriously," the closed captioning does not show that she was imitating him.

When Felix, Ron, and Kim are escaping from the evil lair when ron also says, "ok, i'll try one of those, Hoagies..." Kim's eyes are blue.

during the wind tunnel scene, when kim says "nobodys going to be happy when that crate is opened" her eyes are brown.

Motörhead: The name Motor Ed is is a reference to the popular British heavy metal band Motörhead.

Motor Ed: Business up front, party in the back, and it's the calm before the storm. Ed describes how he wants his mullet cut. This phrase defining the mullet, originated in the movie Cool Hand Luke as: "Business in the front, party in the back."

Motor Ed: Don't cut my hair! Motor Ed refuses to cut his hair. The biblical story of Sampson relates to this. He wouldn't cut his hair because it gave him strength. In the end, Delilah cuts his hair. Delilah is also the name of the hairstylist Moter Ed fires.

Operation Condor: Kim and Ron's battle with Motor Ed in the wind tunnel is copied from a sequence from Jackie Chan's Armour of God II, released in the US as Operation Condor.

Resident Evil: During the Monster truck scene, Felix and Ron are talking about which game is better, Zombie Mayhem 2 or Zombie Mayhem 3. This is a parody of the Resident Evil games, which at that time were up to just Resident Evil 3.

Episode summary

When Ron gains Naco royalties from Bueno Nacho and becomes a multi-millionaire, he loses track of his persona and becomes a self-absorbed individual. However, when Dr. Drakken attempts to steal a huge diamond in order to power his laser, he takes notices of the now rich Ron and attempts to seize his finances, so it’s up to Kim to save the day and her friend Ron; despite the fact that he is no longer the Ron she used to know.

Trivia

This is one of four episodes where Ron changes his image to get more popular, with the other three being All The News, Ron the Man, and The New Ron.

Jump5's remake of 'Celebration' plays as Ron struts into school surrounded by his peeps, in his first appearance as 'the Ron.'

The character models in Ron's flashback to how he invented the Naco are the same ones used for Jonathan Stoppable and Miriam Possible in Rewriting History, which by production codes (and air dates) occurs two episodes after this.

Because Ron got a nickel for every naco, this means that 1,980,000,000 nacos were sold

It isn't even possible to carry $100,000 in cash, let alone 99 mil.

The one girl who was wandering around with Ron looks like one of the cheerleaders: The one with Dark Skin and her hair is Black Afro Style

Kim says something to the effect of "Just south of a billion" when Shego asks her how much Ron has acquired. 99 Million (the amount Ron acquires) is not just south of a billion. It is south of 100 Million... which is only ten percent of a billion.

At Jimmy Ding's store, when Kim was fighting Shego, for a brief moment, you see Ron on the floor with the giant diamond on his pinky wearing his old red sweater instead of his new outfit.

After Ron falls down from the weight of the diamond, you cut to Shego and Kim fighting. In the background, you can see Ron fallen on the floor, but he's wearing his red shirt/blue sweater instead of his new threads!

Kim's mouth is all but missing just before she jumps away after the "You're busted" exchange.

Ron spends alot of his money but near the end people say that there is still 99 mil.

William Daniels, Will Friedle, and Rider Strong worked on Boy Meets World together.

Nick Flippi (An alumni of Clerks: The Animated Series along with Dave Block and Steve Loter) guest-directs this episode.

Total Recall: The rotorcraft is similar to the USMC Boeing V-22 Osprey. Also, the robotic pilot recalls the robotic cab driver in Arnold Shwarzenegger's movie Total Recall.

Knight Rider: William Daniels, the voice of the Robot Pilot of Ron's plane, voiced K.I.T.T. in the classic '80s TV show "Knight Rider".

Ron: Possible, come quick, I need you! Ron's exclamation when he invents the naco echos the famed words of Alexander Graham Bell... the first words he spoke when he invented the telephone.

Kim: "He's calling himself 'The Ron'" New York entrepreneur and host of The Apprentice Donald Trump calls himself "The Donald." "The Ron" is a play on this nickname.

Drakken: New evil lair, 39 million dollars. New laser...This is a reference to the ever-popular "there are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's Mastercard" advertisements.

Ron Stoppable: "A man of wealth and taste!" This line, spoken by Ron on his way to the Bling-Bling King's, is a reference to the Rolling Stones song, "Sympathy for the Devil" ('Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste').

Episode summary

Señor Senior, Sr. finds being a villain is very time-consuming, so he hires a financial consultant to run his business affairs.

While working with Señor Senior, Jr., the consultant cons Junior into signing over all powers of attorney to him. He then robs the Seniors blind.

Later, Kim is called upon to investigate a series of thefts that seem to follow a traveling X-Games competition. (From some video, she and Wade discover that the thief has a 555 tattooed on his neck.) At the X-Games competition in Middleton, she finds the Seniors living a humble existence in a camp trailer making and selling T-shirts, and churning their own butter.

Convinced they've turned a new leaf, Kim investigates some more and finds the thief. He escapes, but not before she's convinced that the thief is Junior. Confronting him, she checks his neck, but finds no "555" tattoo. Junior lets it slip that the only tattoo he's seen like that is his father's "SSS" tattoo.

So Kim chases Senor Senior, Sr., who is the real thief. But before she can capture him, Junior comes forward and turns his father in. At first, Senior is shocked. But then Junior admits he did it for the reward money, which he'll use to rebuild their fortune. Then he'll break his father out of jail.

Trivia

When Ron says, "Rufus, the visual aids please," the stripe at the bottom of his shirt is red.

Pop-pop porter's hair and beard are colored gray in 'All the News'. Here they are not.

When Kim shoots the grappler hook at the airplane, her face is missing.

When Kim pulls back SSS' shirt when they're diving through the air, the tattoo is in the middle of just below his neck. But at the beginning when she sees the SSS on the tape Wade showed her, it was on the left side of his neck, and higher up.

When Kim and Ron are getting into the X-Games, Kim gives a security guard a ticket. The X-Games are free.

Just as in "Ron the Man," Kim's upper lip briefly disappears when she rides that yellow bike to chase SSS. into the skateboard ramp.

Kim does this mission alone.

In other countries, this episode was titled 'To the X-Treme'.

Ron: No date is worth this! This line is similar to that spoken by Harrison Ford's character Han Solo in 'Star Wars: Episode IV', "No reward is worth this!", when Han, Chewbacca and Luke attempt to rescue Princess Leia.

Old School: Ron's gynastics routine is strikingly similar to the rountine performed by Will Ferrell in Old School (2003).

XXX: The title, SSS, and the tatoo on the back of Senore Senor Sr's neck is a spoof on the movie XXX.

Rewriting History

Episode summary

Kim finds out she had a great aunt Miriam - aka Mim - who was shamed out of town because she was implicated in a theft at the Middleton Exposition 100 years before.

Mr. Barkin related the story of how his ancestor - Constable Barkin - pinned the crime of a stolen energy device from a Prof. Demenz on Mim. The reality was that Bartholomew Lipsky (Dr. Drakken's ancestor) and his assistant Ms. Go stole the device, but it was lost as Mim Possible was chasing them. Mim was unfortunately caught in a photo taken by a young cub reporter - Wade's great-grandfather - who is still alive. Kim and Ron visit him, and get his original photo plates.

Wade enhances them and discovers the truth of who was the real thief, but also determines that the stolen device was activated during the chase, and will discharge a huge amount of energy within the day if not found.

Kim and Ron go back to the exposition museum and find the device has been lost on top of an old taco stand all this time. Just as they find it, Drakken and Shego arrive to claim the device, as he's also been on the trail of his ancestor's life. As they grab it, Kim pulls Drakken and Shego off of their hovercar and let it escape. It then explodes, and Drakken and Shego realize the Kim has saved their lives.

Trivia

When Jonathan and the man who sells Nacos are shaking hands, they use their left hands. In normal settings, people use their right hands.

When Kim and Ron are in the museum at the start of the episode, Kim is wearing her green tank top and capris and Ron is wearing his red jersey. When they wake up from the dream sequence, they are wearing the clothes they wore at the end of the dream, the yellow star shirt and the black and white shirt

The first time we see the electrostatic illuminator(in the flashback), it's working with seconds (we see the number 60 to refer a minute), but when we see the photo of Miss Go, it's working with minutes (52560000 minutes), and at the end of the episode, when it's about to explode, returns to work with seconds

When Kim looks through the glass at Mim and John's photo, her reflection shows her hair on its normal side, but it should've been on her opposite, since she was looking in something sort of like a mirror.

When Kim is holding the two photos, one of them is supposed to be of Miss Go holding the Electro-Static Illuminator and the other is supposed to be of the Taco stand. If you look closely at the two photos in the Museum, Ron takes the photo that is supposed to be of the Taco stand, but then it changes to the Hamburger stand.

Kim's great aunt Possible wouldn't look like her. Most of her looks come from her mothers side of the family.

This episode was shown in the mid-afternoon August 5th during a mini-marathon.

Pop Rocks: The candy Ron was eating in this episode was called Shocks Rocks, it send a burst of static electricity throughout the eater’s body. This is a reference to Pop Rocks, the candy that crackles and pops as it dissolves in the eater’s mouth.
