  • Billy and Mandy meets "The Last Unicorn." And I though this show couldn't get any better.

    I adore this show for its obscure mythological references and this one was superb. "The Crass Unicorn" is an episode-long reference to "The Last Unicorn," in which a unicorn quests to find her kin who have all been herded into the sea at the pleasure of an evil king. But while Amalphea and Mary-Francis are both lonely unicorns, they have little else in common. This episode turns the pink-sugar-sparkle niceness of unicorns upside-down and shakes it til its teeth fall out. Billy, who is sick of the negativity of the real world demands that Grim take him to a magical land of happiness. This is where he meets Mary-Francis, a jaded unicorn who has abandoned her herd because of their callous rudeness. Mary-Francis' dry wit and refusal to fit into Billy's concept of what a unicorn should be drive him to try and reform her. Hilarity and many kicks to the face ensue, as Mandy reminds him that "you can't force change." Favorite part:

    In his attempt to reform Mary-Francis Billy subjects the unicorn to psychoanalysis. He plays a word association game with her. Billy: Happy...

    Mary-Francis: Dooky

    Billy: Sad...

    Mary-Francis: Poop-doopy

    Billy: Funny...

    Mary-Francis: Cow patty

    Billy: Deep...

    Mary-Francis: Assault and battery

    Billy: Guilt...

    Mary-Francis: Food, baby

    Billy: Ugly...

    Mary-Francis: Your mama

    The actress delivers these lines so beautifully! I rofl every time I watch it.

    This one has a permanent place in my DVR's memory.
