  • show Description
  • Just about everybody would like to know what it's like to be a king. Then again, what if you're only 12, and the door to your kingdom is in your bedroom? That's when things start to get a little weird… Most kids have old socks and dust bunnies under their beds, but 12-year-old Russell Wright finds something completely different -- a secret portal that leads to a fantastic kingdom where Russell is chosen to be…ta da…the King! The Kingdom of "Under" is loaded with quirky characters and endless adventures. Unfortunately, every king has his enemies, and Russell and his wise cracking Westie Gus, are up to their royal necks in them. Take Bob Wire and Auntie First, for example: they'd just love to snatch the crown from the new king. There's no shortage of other baddies, too, waiting to ambush Russell on his strange and wonderful adventures; but with the help of his merry Under band, Loopy, the fun-loving court jester, Vernon, Under's Official Finder Outer and Adviser to the King, and the brave ex-princess Populah, Russell finds fun, excitement and the meaning of leadership in this strange land. And what a strange land it is! Russell, and the viewers who dare to come along, will discover creatures like the Frags, Hoverbeasts, the Skysquid, Slythers, and cow-sized monsters that live in the sea. Not exactly what Russell was expecting when his family moved to the `burbs. But with his new subjects to guide him, and his loyal friends beside him, Russell discovers that it's good to be king.moreless

    Trivia (7)

    • Glitch: Right before Russell sees Cliff's picture, Gus runs to Russell's right hand side and is facing sideways. But when the camera closes up to Russell when he notices the picture, Gus is facing forwards instead of sideways.

    • Glitch: When Russell first sees the picture of Ex-King Cliff, from far away, he has 4 points on his crown, but the crown Russell later gets has 3 points.

    • Bob Wire: If I was king, which I was, we wouldn't have to ship squmps! How can this be when Cliff was king before Russell?

    • When Russell comes home from school, he says he has to do homework, and then go for scouts, but when he sees the note Loopy left him, he immediately runs to Under, without even touching his homework. When he returns from Under at the end of the day, his meeting for scouts is canceled, so he spends some quality time with Gus. What about his homework?

    • How could Cousin Tess, Hue, and Auntie First not have noticed that the look-alike was a fake?!

    • From the previous episode, weren't the Frag's trying to teach Bob a lesson and all of a sudden, they forgive him?

    • New creature introduced: the Lurber. This giant green beastie spends most of its time buried in the ground of Under with just the top of its head protruding. It's the official task of the King of Under to mow the grass and weeds off the Lurber's head to keep it asleep- if the "lawn of the Lurber" isn't mowed, the beast wakes up, digs itself out of the ground, and goes on a rampage in search of the current King of Under.

    • Title Pun: In One Ear and Out the Other

    • Auntie First: Not by the barbs on your tinny tin, tin. This is an allusion to the tale of the Three Little Pigs.

    • Auntie First: This is Auntie First...LET MY PEOPLE GO! Obviously, this is in reference to the biblical story of Moses (in some religions, called the Passover) who liberated Egyptian slaves from captivity.

    • Gus: Unless he was run over by a truck of red kryptonite. Reference to Superman, acknowledging his weakness.

    • King Russell: You don't see Superman acting like that! This is a reference to the comic book hero, Superman.

    • Loopy: When in doubt, boogie out. This is almost exactly what Patrick says in Spongebob Squarepants in the episode, "Tea at the Treedome" when he says: "When in doubt, pinky out."

    • King Russell: Thanks, Gus. You're better than Lassie! A reference to the golden retriever show, Lassie.

    • There are a lot of cowboy references and lines within this episode.
