Episode Summary

EDIT
Captain Hero is thrilled to discover Greeks have moved in next door, but remains oblivious to the fact that it is a family of Greek immigrants and not a Greek fraternity. When the Greeks won't let Captain Hero rush their house, he sets his sights on revenge, including fraternity-style pranks like kidnapping their daughter. Meanwhile, Ling-Ling's sickly father moves into the Drawn Together house and falls in love with Toot. Like a typical gold digger, Toot marries the rich old man for his money. But will Ling-Ling put up with losing his inheritance to a fatty?moreless

  • Eh.

    This was an okay season premiere, the episodes yet to come are funnier & livelier. In this episode hero thinks he's in a fraternity, not what I expected from the second season season finale. Toot marries Lin-Lin's father. That was surprising. The punchlines weren't very good in this episode. The pig was hardly in it, either Clara. I love when they go to Grease & starts singing about the abducting. That was hilarious! Still don't think this episode gave a range on all the characters to open the all new season plus the last season which is pretty upsetting. Hopefully they will do better the next episode.moreless
  • This was an above average episode of Drawn Together in my opinion.

    I think that with the start of the new season Drawn Together has changed a little. One thing I noticed about it, is that they seem to have done a lot of Family Guy style jokes. Not sure if they didn\'t do this before, I don\'t really remember, honestly, but I noticed it in this one. There were a lot of good jokes in this episode, I really liked the coming up next Daily Show gag and how they responded to that. This was a pretty good premiere, but I liked the terminator episode that came after this better. I reccommend that one.moreless
  • Child abduction... This show has sunk so low to make people laugh. I can't believe it.

    Another Captain hero Episode! Oh no. Captain Hero finds out that a Greek family has moved next to them. As usual, Hero thinks that it is actually a fraternity that has moved in. He steals the family's daughter, thinking that she is a goat, and runs. After that, Foxxy finds out and forces Hero to return the girl. Hero then returns her and sings a parody of that song from "Grease". Meanwhile, Ling-ling's father gets married to Toot. Again, so wrong, yet so funny. The story end with Toot getting killed in space. Luckily, Hero won't get an episode in the future. Right? Wrong! Another Captain hero Episode!moreless
  • I missed them all summer and this episode reminded me why exactly :D

    9.2
    Those who hoped that maybe a new season means the end of Captain Hero based plot lines, are probably very disappointed. More Hero! Fortunately, we got more than a decent episode and after few months of absence, even the fact that it’s Hero-centric (again!) wasn’t able to spoil my fun. Fans of the other characters might be seriously upset though, Spanky had one line and Foxxy and Clara appeared on the screen for about 30 seconds each. I really can't say much about the plot, it was a standard DT episode: lots of sick jokes, blood, stereotypes, grossness, sex-that-went-WRONG and something for Xandir/Hero fans. Not unique but then, I don't watch DT for it's uniqueness but for all of the things I mentioned above. Perhaps it deserved less points but seeing as this is the first episode of the new series and that it was genuinely funny, I give it over 9 :) Was it FUN?? YES! And that's all that matters.



    I missed those freaks :Dmoreless
  • As Keegan Michael-Key on "MADtv" would say: "Takin it to a whole 'nother level!" :lol:

    The reason I haven't written a review for this show until now is because when I first signed onto TV. com and read the episode reviews already available for the shows I already watched, the reviews pretty much said the same things that I agreed with for the episodes and I felt as though there wasn't much more I could contribute to elaborate on what was said. Fortunatly, being one of the first people to watch this episode & therefore be the first to have a chance to write info for this show has certain advantages. I'm finally able to express my own point of view on one of these episodes as I know precisely what I want to say about it and it hasn't already been said by someone else! This show continues to push the envelope of controversy out of the doors as this show continually kicks down prohibitive doors nobody even knew existed! I'm not even going to give away some of the stunts seen here since they're so unbelievable, you'd have to see it personally in order to believe it! But this show is great! It just keeps getting riskier and friskier with each passing season & it has no end in sight! This is one show I really love! :Dmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The coat of arms used on the show for Captain Hero's Phi Alpha Gimmel Fraternity is Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity's real coat of arm.

    • Usually in foreign families, the parents are the ones that cannot speak English. In Ling-Ling's family, he can't speak English but his father can.

    • When it shows the pile of deceased parents, two yellow characters that look a lot like Wooldoor are there. Wooldoor's parents were earlier killed and made into candy by the Strawberry Sweetcakes, so Wooldoor's parents shouldn't be in the pile.

    • Unlike the past two season premieres, there is no "This year on Drawn Together" teaser segment at the end of the episode.

    • Spanky only appears in one scene and similarly has only one line in this episode. This is when Captain Hero, Foxxy, and Spanky are seen getting off the plane once they arrive in Greece.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Captain Hero: So long, you gay independents. I'm gonna rush me a frat! (he drops a white pill into a mug of beer, drinks it, then falls on the floor)
      Wooldoor: I think the mailman meant that a family of Greek immigrants moved in next door, not a fraternity.
      Xandir: And that wasn't a roofie, Captain Hero. That was a tic-tac.
      Captain Hero: Are you guys gonna f**k me or not?

    • Captain Hero: Oh. Pardon me, schmucky woman starting to sell real estate in a desperate attempt to create a career for herself way too late in life because her husband dumped her sorry ass, but did our neighbors move?
      Realtor: I'm afraid so.
      Captain Hero and Wooldoor: Huzzah!
      Realtor: I guess after their daughter was kidnapped, never to be found, they gave up on their American dream and moved back to Greece.
      Captain Hero: Daughter? Kidnapped? And... wait a second. Wait a second!
      (Captain hero thinks, and it shows various images of little girls and goats.)
      Captain Hero: So, she's the daughter of a Greek family, not the goat mascot of a Greek fraternity! Haha! Doesn't this beat all? Come on, talk about embarrassing! Oh, Xandir's not going to believe this.

    • Police Officer: Ma'am, I know this is difficult, but do you remember anything about the sandwich I asked you to make for me?

  • NOTES (10)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Ling-Ling: It's Ling-Ling's money!
      Toot: It's my money!
      Ling-Ling: Duck season!

      This is a reference to the Looney Tunes cartoon "Rabbit Fire", where Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are arguing over whether it is duck season or "wabbit" season, and Bugs keeps tricking Daffy into saying "duck season".

    • Jun-Jee: Space turns asians into queers. That only explanation for George Takei.

      George Takei starred in Star Trek. He came out as gay in 2005.

    • Freaks & Greeks
      This episode's title is a play on the short-live TV show Freaks & Geeks.

    • Grease
      There are several references to the 1978 John Tavolta & Olivia Newton-John movie vehicle Grease in this episode. Rydell High School where the main characters went, the Pink Ladies, a 1978 John Travolta look-alike, a song parodying "Summer Nights" with Captain Hero & Georgina taking the poses that the main characters took during the song, and Captain Hero driving a car with Georgina in it that starts to fly in the air at the end of the episode as John Travolta's car did at the end of Grease.

    • Say Anything
      The sequence where Ling-Ling's dad is holding up a boom-box playing the song In Your Eyes for Toot is directly taken from a famous scene in the 1989 movie Say Anything where the lead character played by John Cusack also does this in an attempt to win the girl he loves.

    • The Smurfs
      In the opening sequence, Wooldoor is mowing over a whole colony of Smurf-like creatures, who were purple instead of blue.
