  • This is the worst Drawn Together episode I have seen so far.

    5.3
    The only funny part in this episode was when Toot says 'Later A******', and runs off like roadrunner, that was the only part in this episode that actually made me laugh. I think season 3 is turning out to be the worst Drawn Together season. And what the hell is with the 'cool kids'? was there something I missed in the previous episode, to explain this? Another problem with this episode is that it is still offensive, but it isn't that good an episode to overlook that, making 'Mexican't Buy Me Love' just pointlessly offensive, and how could anyone like that? I won't give this episode lower than 5 because no Drawn Together episode deserves that.moreless

  • While Toot and Ling-Ling are booked in Mexico for killing the most beautiful She-Male in the country, Capt. Hero tries to get out of his lame nerd-clique and into the incredibly rude 2cool4school crew of Foxxy Love.moreless

    Truly beautiful. The Episode starts with a nice parody of the typical \"Previously on ...\", diverting into two separate storylines. While the Mexican cockfight/hooker-slashing/making-fun-of-the-country-south-of-the-border part is hilarious the story back home is less original. Capt. Hero is once again not so latently gay but he undergoes a very funny metamorphosis into Hero Calrissian, suddenly very popular among the violent in-crew around Foxxy and that guy from Long Island (good to see him back). Meanwhile in Mexico Toot and Ling-Ling are to be tried for the murder of a she-male hooker unless they come up with a certain amount of money to bribe the donkey-riding Mexican cop. Ling-Ling enters a cockfight championship and tears apart chicken after chicken in order to please the King of Mexico (!). I cried tears of laughter in the process. As classified this episode is an example exactly why I watch theis show.moreless
  • A good episode of Drawn Together (though they all are.) Ling-Ling and Toot are stuck in Mexico so Ling-Ling takes up c*ckfighting. Meanwhile, Foxxy pretends to be Captain Hero's girlfriend so he will save the Earth from a meteor.moreless

    Captain Hero is tired of not being cool. His only friends are Zandar and Wooldoor. He is desperate to become popular. When a meteor is heading towards the Earth, he refuses to do anything. Foxxy says she'll pretend to go out with him so he can be one of the cool kids. Meanwhile, Toot and Ling-Ling are stuck in Mexico. They must pay a total of $13 American Dollars to leave. Ling-Ling takes up c*ckfighting. He decides to stop fighting because he thinks it's wrong to kill the chicken. He and the chickens team-up to destroy the ruler of Mexico, Carlos Mencia. In the end, they succeed. Back at the house, Foxxy develops a real crush of CH. After he dumps her for Clara, she reveals about the truth about them going out. He becomes unpopular again. The meteor hits the Earth, but does nothing.moreless
  • Carlos Mencia takes his own brand of racy comedy and drops it in the world of "Drawn Together!" Hilarity ensues!

    It seems now that "Drawn Together" has been on for a while, it's finally attracted a few celebrities & their attentions in order to coax the celebrities down to lend their voices to their great hit show! There's Alex Borstein and Phil Lamarr of "MadTv" fame, there's Billy West of "Ren and Stimpy" fame, and now Carlos Mencia from "The Mind of Mencia" fame! Toot and Ling-Ling win a trip to America's poorest neighbor, Mexico! However, they wind up in some major trouble and must come up with 5 billion pesos in order to keep from landing in jail! The funny part is, 5 billion pesos is supposedly only almost equivalent to $12 in American money! :lol: Meanwhile, Captain Hero is trying to be cool and Foxxy tries to help him. Unfortunatly, trying to make Captain Hero cool is like trying to make a cat enjoy swimming in water! It's practically impossible! Meanwhile, Ling-Ling discovers that it's wrong to fight others who have done nothing wrong to incur the wrath of somebody as strong as Ling-Ling. The tiny little housemate proves he has a heart of gold as he decides to take a stand and help the chicken's defeat the menace that's the King of Mexico! What I've noticed in this season so far, is that the characters are becoming less two-dimensional then they were when they were first introduced and that the show has progressively made the characters more humanized. When a show makes their character's more humanized, that makes it easier for people to sympathize with their plights and troubles! This show hasn't disappointed me yet, and I don't think it ever will! Enough said, true believers! :Dmoreless

  • QUOTES (18)

  • NOTES (5)

  • ALLUSIONS (11)

    • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back:

      Foxxy's introduction of Captain Hero to the cool kids as "Hero Calrissen is a reference to the 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo's best friend was Lando Calrissen.

    • Star Wars:

      The part where Toot swoops down in a spaceship to distract the King of Mexico's mutated form is a reference to the movie Star Wars where Han Solo did the same thing to Darth Vader. The reference is further punctuated by the fact that Toot is flying a spaceship that looks like the Millenium Falcon that Han Solo flies, only with a Mexican hat at the top of it. Han Solo also says "he's all yours kid!" just like Toot.

    • The Newlywed Game:

      Toot and Ling-Ling's answer of "Up the Butt" is a reference to an incident on the 1970's version of the game show The Newlywed Game. In response to Bob Eubanks's question "Where is the most unusual place you made whoopie?" a woman replied "That would be in the butt, Bob!" For years Eubank insisted that the incident never happenend and was just an urban legend, but the clip surfaced a few years ago on a special featuring outragous Game Show clips hosted by Eubanks and former Comedy Central gameshow host Ben Stein.

    • Can't Buy Me Love:

      The title and subplot of this episode are based on the 1987 film.

    • The Fast And The Furious:

      Captain Hero's mentions The Fast and the Furious, a 2001 movie about the import racing scene starring Paul Walker and Vin Diesel.

    • King of Mexico: By the power of Mencia!
      This is an allusion to both He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and Carlos Mencia. In the He-Man TV show, the character Prince Adam would say, "By the Power of Grayskull!" before transforming into He-Man. Carlos Mencia is the actor who provides the voice for the King of Mexico.

    • Captain Hero: What does Captain Hero have in common with Lance Armstrong's left testicle? We are both single.

      This is a reference to Lance Armstrong's battle with testicular cancer. After recovering, he went on to win the Tour de France, the most well known professional cycling race, seven consecutive times.

    • The Tonight Show With Jay Leno:

      El Esta Noche is supposed to be the Mexican version of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Jose Leno is a parody of Jay Leno, the only major difference is that Jose has a mustache and hat. Also, they both have an African American guitar player named Kevin on their shows.

    • Rodney King Incident

      Foxxy says, "This is just as uncool as the Rodney King tickling." She is referring to when Rodney King was beaten and arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1991. The incident was videotaped by a bystander. The police brutality was believed to be racially motivated and caused tension between African Americans and the LAPD.

    • Deep Impact:

      Foxxy says, "And if the movie Deep Impact was any indication of what would happen next, the whole planet was about to become boring and unwatchable."
      This is a reference to the fact that the 1998 film about a comet colliding into Earth, Deep Impact, was a flop at the box office, even though it was well-scripted by apocalyptic movie standards.

    • Looney Toons: Road Runner:

      When Toot says "See you later asshole", She jumps up says "beep beep" and runs away. This refers to the roadrunner from the Road Runner/Coyote cartoons.
