  • In this episode Kim finds Bonnie a very close person - the same for Ron and mr. Barkin... No way? See for yourself!

    In "Bonding" creators used old ,same scheme as in "Truth hurts" , "Emotion sickness" and some more. We have Villians and Some Invention. Next Heroes appear and we get some action. Once fight is finished, everything seems fine. But later, Heroes wil feel influence of Some Invention for quite time - leading to many suprising situations. Here we have "Bondo-ball" - very sticky gadget.



    That's how Ron gets sticked with mr Barkin, and Kim with Bonnie (good it's not classic "Kim & Ron" situation). AS result we get fine episode with handful of funny situations (mr.Barkin's teddy and date at cinema - great!). Well, we also have some silly moments (Ron's rapping for example) - luckily, not many. Suprisingly, it's the first (only?) episode, where we can see "good" Bonnie for a moment - and even feel bad for her (scene with the sisters). But somebody has to be a "meanie" - and it's her part.



    Sometimes very good idea for episode can be messed up . In "Bonding" we don't get very original concept - but great realization.moreless
  • Kim and Ron get a hold of Dr. Dementor's "Bonding-Ball", but when Ron accidentily drops it, he gets stuck to Mr. Barkin, and Kim gets tuck to Bonnie.

    This episode sure was "Cleverly Plotted"! I thought it was a nice touch to get inside Bonnie's life and see what her life really is about... It reminds me of an--No, it reminds me of THREE episodes of the popular tv series, Lizzie McGuire (which I haven't seen in a VERY long time!). Bonnie has always reminded me of the mean girl, Kate, in Lizzie McGuire. Does she you? Anyways, I always liked the giant wiener dogs in this episode, and how Rufus and Ron were eating all of those muffins that they were supposed to sell and it didn't work out. As I said, "Cleverly Plotted"! Nice work, Disney! Nice work...

    :) :D ;P :) :D ;Pmoreless
  • After an unsuccessful mission to stop Professor Dementor, Kim and Ron are struck with a mysterious adhesive and must learn to live life attached to Bonnie and Barkin respectively.

    When Kim and Ron go to stop Professor Dementor from stealing from a top-secret research laboratory, Ron inadvertently catches Dementor’s “Bondo-Ball” in his pocket, which he accidentally triggers later that day. When Ron rushes into Mr. Barkin and gets stuck to him, he rushes to warn Kim but discovers that she is already stuck to Bonnie. Ron got to know more Mr. Barkin and Kim learned a lot more than she expected from Bonnie. My favorite part of this episode is when we learned that Mr. Barkin is the leader of some kind of girls scout club thing and when we saw that Bonnie is treated badly at home by her sisters.moreless
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. If you can look past the pretense and the lame use of a mad scientist's bonding ball, you can enjoy the hilarity that ensues.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. If you can look past the pretense and the lame use of a mad scientist's bonding ball, you can enjoy the hilarity that ensues. While it would be assumed and was even teased that this bonding would result in Kim and Ron getting stuck together, it was the next obvious pairings of Barkin and Ron as well as Kim and Bonnie that ended up happening. Great comic potential and delivery.



    This episode gave us a little insight on a couple of supporting characters which is a pleasant change from the lives of Ron and Kim. The interactions between the odd couples made the episode all the more enjoyable. My one gripe is that they'll probably not pursue the whole Bonnie as the picked upon sibling in her family in future episodes, but it was an interesting thing to show to explain her general negativity and her need to succeed which sticks her into her rivalry with Kim in the first place.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (10)

    • Bonnie's gloves mysteriously disappear while she and Kim fight Dementor. Additionally, they have also changed shape from mittens (seen before the girls are captured) to regular gloves.

    • When Wade calls Kim on the Kimmunicator after Ron and Barkin get stuck together, Ron temporarily moves to the other side of Barkin, which should be impossible based on the nature of the adhesive substance.

    • Instead of wearing his usual tan pants, Ron is wearing his darker mission outfit pants for the entire episode.

    • When Kim and Bonnie are in Kim's room, you can see a door and Dr. Possible passing by it. However, it has seen in every other episode that the way to enter into Kim's room is by going up a flight of stairs.

    • After Mr.Barkin tells his scout about the invading troops, he turns the lights on and the projector off, but the image remains on the projector board.

    • When Mr.Barkin turns on the projector to show the invading scouts, he and Ron step into the path of the projection, yet the image is still clearly seen by the other scouts.

    • When Kim and Bonnie got captured by Dementor, Kim had her snowsuit on, but when she was tied up in his lair, Kim was wearing her mission clothes instead of her snowsuit.

    • When Kim and Bonnie were climbing the cliff, Wade calls Kim on the Kimmunicator. When she takes out her kimunicator, she has an un-gloved hand, but when we see her climbing again, her hand is gloved.

    • The way Kim and Bonnie and Ron and Barkin are joined together keeps changing. At first Kim and Bonnie are joined by the bum but then the hip and then the legs. The same is true of Ron and Barkin.

    • When Kim and Bonnie are climbing the rockface, Bonnie asks why Kim didn't just use a jetpack. Kim replies that the jetpack couldn't take the added weight, however Kim has carried Ron with said jetpack in previous episodes.

  • QUOTES (19)

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Family Guy:

      While stuck together, Barkin swims while Ron can't keep up in the pool. An episode of Family Guy, "Stuck Together, Torn Apart." Brian was bonded with Stewie (on both hands), at the swimming part where Brain swims while Stewie can't keep up. Interestingly enough, Patrick Warburton, who voices Mr. Barkin, also voices Joe on Family Guy. Christy Carlson Romano (Kim) and Nicole Sullivan (Shego) have also guest starred on the show.

    • Dementor: Don't you see the security beams?

      The security beams resemble the security field protecting the nanites in the movie I, Robot.

    • The Emperor's New Groove:

      Mr. Barkin, who is voices by Patrick Warburton, leads the girl scout troops in this episode, though they're called the Pixie Scouts; in The Emperor's New Groove, Patrick Warburton provides the voice of Kronk, who also leads a girl scout troop, complete with similar squirrel-communication skills that Mr. Barkin had.

    • Hulk:

      The giant weiner dogs are remnent of the Hulk-dogs from The Hulk (though the mutant dogs first appeared in the Hulk comic book three-parter "The Dogs of War")

    • Ron: It's all part of the great circle of life.

      This is a reference to the 1994 Disney film The Lion King, in which the circle of life played an important role in that film. This is supported by the fact that Ron was too close to a lion's cage and was nearly mauled by the lion shortly after he said those words.

    • Prof. Dementor: So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye!

      A song from the classic Sound of Music
