Fortune Cookie Day/Gold Fool's
Fortune Cookie Day: After being introduced to fortune cookies, Kuzco starts to believe them and begins to follow everything they say.

  • Kuzco is easily duped by Yzma (again) but at the last minute is saved by Malina.

    One of Yzma's lines in "Fortune Cookie Day" bears a striking resemblance to a line from the popular flash video "The End of the World." I'm curious as to whether this would be classified as coincidence, homage, or just plain plagiarism. Maybe I'm reading too deeply into this, but I don't even typically watch "Emperor's New School," I just caught it while channel surfing, and this line jumped right out at me. Yzma says to Kronk (and I don't have an exact quote here, but it should be close), "Go give Kuzco the cookie with the fake fortune in it." And Kronk replies, "Can I get somethign to eat first, I haven't had anything except cookies all day." Yzma then says, "Well alright, get yourself something to eat, and then give him the fake fortune cookie!" The line in "The End of the World" is: Man:"Fire the missiles!" Woman:"But I am le tired." Man:"Well, have a nap. And then fire the missiles!" A bit too close for comfort, in my mind.moreless
  • Very, Very, Good Episode!

    I loved both of these episodes! They were probably my favorite so far. Actually, I think that I would say that they were my favorite. They were well written, funny, fast paced, and entertaining. Fortune Cookie Day was a fantastic episode. I loved Yzma in this episode, and Malina and Kronk were hilarious also. Of course, Kuzco was funny, as usual. As this episode is close to the season finale, I can only imagine great things in this show's future. This is definately one of the episodes that I will strongly recommend for anyone at all. I know that I loved them!moreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • Melina: stares
      (suspenful music plays)
      Kronk:Oh no, the stare!

      The suspenful music is similar to the famous music from the "Shower Scene" of the 1960 film Psycho. The music's name is "Murder", who's sound is of screeching violins. The stare is also a reference of the film, which was one of the film's thematical motif

    • Gold Fool's is a rearrangement of the term "Fool's Gold", aka pyrite, a mineral noted for its similarity in appearance to genuine gold.
