  • This episode will go down in one of my all time favorites. Now the first one which deals with Adam Lyon reeking havoc all over the school with his somewhat newfound power is funny and the animation/storyboards are just great.moreless

    Now the secone is this crazy adventure that goes into the minds of the Spiffies, which I ask for more episodes about them.

    I looked the art style of it and it was quite funny but wasn't really enough to keep my that interested.

    My favorite part of this show was the first short and not all the second.

    But anyway they go on this strange quest and they fight Jake who is a big butted Dragon?

    And they destroy him? In reality Jake is I can't remember because it was so crazy but anyway one of the shows best episodes and I couldn't have asked for anything more.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • The crocodile from Me Adam, You Jake gets a diffent look for A Very Special Boy only. He gets his regular look back in Lonely Lyon.

    • Running gags in this episode: 1. Adam Lyon keeps acting like a jerk while he has his protected status. 2. Phinnius and the other Spiffies keep trying to avoid all of the adversaries they meet while they travel to defeat the dreaded Spider-Dragon.

    • Billboard gags: 1. Sloth Meeting Postponed. A Very Special Boy. 2. Where's Our Marquee Post?! Knights of the Multiplication Table.

    • Endugu Elephant appears naked for the first time in this episode.

    • It's confirmed in this episode by Phinnius Porpoise that the location of My Gym Partner's a Monkey takes place in Glendale, California.

    • It's learned in this episode that Adam Lyon's natural defense mechanism is his ability to raise his voice to shriek in a really high, girlish voice.

    • End Credits: Principal Pixiefrog keeps saying the word "No."

    • This marks the second time we see Phinnius' and Aloysius' eyes but they are normal, not beady.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Adam as the Jester: Wait a minute, I just realized something! You guys avoided the Bog Shark, you avoided the Harpies, and you avoided the Two Headed Beast! Have you guys ever ACTUALLY fought in a real battle BEFORE?! The Spiffies:! Adam sarcastically: That's just great!

  • NOTES (3)

    • Although Slips has moved his shirt sleeves as though he actually had arms and even made his tail look like a hand in the past, this is the first time he has actually sprouted hands and arms, in order to protect himself from hearing Adam Lyon's screaming.

    • It's revealed in this episode that the reason why Adam's friends don't act very bright more often is because one of their self-defense mechanisms for not getting hurt by more agressive animals is by acting less intelligent then they really are.

    • First time that a 30 minute episode of My Gym Partner's a Monkey had a 7/15 minute format instead of the usual 11/11 minute format for two episode segments. In this case, A Very Special Boy was only seven minutes long while Knights of the Multiplication Table was 15 minutes long.
