  • Not exactly an episode for the highlight reel. Professor Dementor gets his second solo episode of the season, and I just question, WHY?

    3.0
    Animation aside, this was boring. There wasn't an ounce of ommff in anything this plot had to offer, this episode was focused on boring villains like Dementor and his brother in law. Cousin Larry wasn't up to a whole lot either. The script didn't have much to offer, and neither did the storyboarding sadly. Poor Patton Oswalt, his voice gets lumped with some of the lamest villains in animation: Whether it be Cosmo Krank(The Batman), That one guy from Sentries of The Last Cosmos(Batman Beyond), and here with Professor Dementor(Kim Possible), and I'm sure theres more.



    I find Dementor to be one of KP's least entertaining villains in Kim Possible's rogue's gallery. Everything (except his voice) just screams generic super villain; especially his design which is really pretty bad. Almost every time Professor Dementor is on screen, he just comes across as a poor man's Drakken.



    I think there's definitely better villains on this show than Dementor, in the past he's had better characters (or character arc's) to hide behind; but here I don't think Cousin Larry was a strong enough character to hide Dementor's blandness. There was nothing that was terribly wrong with cousin Larry per say, but I think there are other guest stars that have a stronger presence than him, that and the entire moral with Larry & Kim was a rehash(Kim accepts Larry's Sci-Fi interests, gee didn't we just see that in season 1's Monkey Fist Strikes?) This whole plot would've been alot more memorable with someone like Drakken who is more entertaining than Dementor.



    In short Dementor lacks those certain quirks that make KP rogues like Drakken, Shego, Monkey Fist, or The Seniors entertaining. Besides being Drakken's rival(which only works if Drakken is around) there's nothing about Dementor that makes him stand out amongst Kim Possible's rogue's gallery. He's just a bland baddy IMO.



    The stuff with Ron and Hana & the cool visuals in the third act couldn't save this one from boredom.



    A really boring episode.moreless
  • Larry!!!!!! Why did you?????? Ya don't even think about it Larry!!!!! Read this review and AGREE!

    6.7
    This episode centers on Kim's cousin Larry and Dementor's obsession with Kim's supersuit. In order to get the supersuit, Dementor sends his henchmen to kidnap Ron. However, the henchmen kidnap Larry by mistake. I guess it's because of the humor. Despite the lack of Drakken and Shego (except for during the credits) this episode was pure Kim Possible wit. It didn't have the shortcomings that occur in other episodes, like deviations from the characters or absurd villans. It was reasonably believable (well, as believable as a show about a teen crime-fighter can get) and a well-rounded episode. So I jsut wonder why Larry would be tricked and what so ever....

    I can't say exactly why this episode appeals to me so much. The plot wasn't amazing, Dementor's not one of my favorite villans, and nothing new really happened with Kim and Ron. I guess it's because of the humor. Despite the lack of Drakken and Shego (except for during the credits) this episode was pure Kim Possible wit. It didn't have the shortcomings that occur in other episodes, like deviations from the characters or absurd villans. It was reasonably believable (well, as believable as a show about a teen crime-fighter can get) and a well-rounded episode. I especially enjoyed the twist at the end- I can honestly say I didn't see that coming. In short: this episode was just pure, fun Kim Possible. "Exactly why I watch the series".moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (Larry runs into the Possible household with the Extremely Large Blaster Device while Dementor and his henchmen take cover in the bushes. A few seconds later, there's an explosion inside)

      Dementor: Do I care?

      Dementor: (to his henchmen) Bring in the E.L.B.D!
      Myron: Ooh, ooh, ooh.
      Dementor: Yes, Myron?
      Myron: What's an E.L.B.D?
      Dementor & Larry: Extremely Large Blaster Device.
      Dementor: How did you know that?
      Larry: Scenario 5. A little unorthidox to bring into Scenario 11, but I suppose it's okay, this time.
      (Dementor sneers)

    • (After Hana secretly sets off the self-destruct of Dementor's lair)
      Kim: (To Ron) If you're going to blow things up, maybe we should wait for your parents to take Han.
      Ron: It wasn't me!
      Kim: Riiight. I suppose it was the baby.

    • (After Myron brings Dementor Larry instead of Ron)
      Dementor: I hope you like the stuffing of the strudel, Myron!

    • (After Dementor is defeated)
      Aunt June: Are these boys coming to the party too? I don't think I made enough tuna sandwiches.
      Myron: Ooh, tuna salads, my favorite.
      Dementor: StrudelWorks, Myron. StrudelWorks!

    • (After Kim and the others are captured)
      Larry: Bring them all back to the lair!
      Dementor: I give the orders around here! (he pauses for a moment) On the other hand, that's a pretty good one. What he said!

    • Myron: (sees Ron) Oh, you're the guy with Kim Possible who looks like he shouldn't be with Kim Possible.
      Ron: And what is that suppose to mean?!

    • Ron: (to Larry) Yo, Lar! We looking at a Scenario Nineteen here?
      Larry: Precisely!

    • (Talking about her cat up a tree)
      Old Woman: Oh! Sassy is so frightened.
      Kim: By any chance is Sassy a cougar?
      Old Woman: Oh heavens no. She is a puma.
      Ron: Oh, that's completely different.
      Kim: No it's not!

    • (Entering Dementor's lair)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • The Green Lama (one "L") was a Golden Age comic of the 1940s; whether or not writer Kurt Weldon was aware of this, or simply made up a silly name (probably the double "L" Llama, if so), is unknown, but knowing about that comic book would certainly establish Larry's ubergeekdom.

    • Green Lantern:

      While in the comic book store, Charlotte talks about a comic called the Green Llama. This is really a parody on the DC comic series and character called Green Lantern.

    • Jaws:

      When Ron says the line "We're gonna need a bigger boat", he is making a reference to the hit thriller movie from decades ago titled Jaws.
