  • A new villain and a new friend

    Kim has to face off against Motor Ed a mechanical engineering genius who's behind thefts with mainly destruction in mind and creating a super monster truck. Meanwhile Ron makes a new friend named Felix who is wheel chair bound and Kim tries to be sensitive toward his disability while finding out how silly she was being. Just because someone has a disability doesn't mean that person is helpless.
  • Hair today, goon tomorrow.

    Various car parts are being heisted to create a super monster truck. The criminal behind the thefts is...a guy with a mullet. Yes, that's what this episode is about.

    It feels like just another second-season coaster, but this episode is greatly entertaining. The credit goes to two new characters:

    The wheelchair-bound Felix, who hits it off with Ron and refuses to let his handicap get him down (though Kim walking on eggshells because of his condition threatens to nudge the story into 'very special episode' territory).

    And then there's the titular villain, voiced by John DiMaggio (who also voices Drakken; gee, I wonder if that'll be important later), who obviously had a lot of fun.

    "Motor Ed" is quite enjoyable.
  • Kim and Ron face off against Motor Ed, a mechanics genius with one goal, random destruction. To stop him, the young heroes need the help of Felix, a handicapped young man with a major league tricked out wheelchair.

    First let me say this, MOTOR ED ROCKS!!!!!! He is my second favorite villain, behind only Shego, because he is both funny and a threat. Despite his mullet, air guitar, and tendency to say, “Seriously”, he is also big, strong and a genius with machines. Ed even openly mocks Kim by calling her “Red”. I also like his master plan, to use powerful monster trucks to turn the world into a giant scrap yard. Nothing like a little murder and mayhem, baby! It must have been a nice change of pace for John DiMaggio to play a competent villian. This story also introduces Felix (voiced by Jason Marsden); a wheelchair bound teen who is the son of a cyber robotics expert. His presence causes a role reversal for Kim and Ron. Ron is totally comfortable with him, while Kim trying to be politically correct ends up being awkward and goofy. The opening sequence of this episode involves an incident with Ron at the state fair, which was funny, if a little disgusting; the look on Mr. Possible’s face was priceless. But the bottom line is that Motor Ed was the star of this fine episode. Dude, did I mention that he rocks so hard, seriously!!! AAAAHHHHHHH- YEAH!!!!!!!!!
