Episode Summary

An Inconvenient Tooth / Situation Tragedy
An Inconvenient Tooth: The one thing Yang fears isn't girly stuff or fighting villains, it is going to see the Dentist. But when Yang neglects his teeth, a magical force falls over him and he develops Wild Hare Tooth syndrome! Even worse, Edna wants to have a non Woo Foo Rabbit for dinner and Carl, desperate for his mothers love, is willing to oblige. Will Yin and Master Yo have to save Yang, or can he figure a clever way out of this situation by himself? Situation Tragedy: Carl, still trying to destroy the Woo Foo Warriors, has had enough of Yin and Yang scurrying to their Dojo everytime things get tough. So when Carl finally gets his Magical Remote fixed, he uses it to trap the Woo Foo Warriors and Master Yo into a sitcom world, where the rules that the good guys are used to don't apply, and there's a built in audience judging all of the characters every move. Are Yin and Yang going to be able to figure out a way of Carl's sitcom world by playing by his rules or will they have to play by their own rules?moreless

  • :lol: Funny! :D Absolutely a laugh-a-minute! :idea:

    This episode definitely shows that when it comes to humor, the show of "Yin Yang Yo" is definitely one of the best shows to see it! Whether its making fun of poor dental hygiene, Yang being naked, Carl acting like a certain hunter, Yang acting like a certain bunny, funny word-play, and references to Foghorn Leghorn, the Road Runner, and Wily E. Coyote, the laughs just don't stop coming! It's always a treat to see Yang being clever! And they even make fun of public service announcements that use disclaimers at the end of certain shows! And "Yin Yang Yo" doesn't just make fun of other cartoons, they make fun of the live-action sitcom world as well! Carl thinks he's a big shot when he gets his magical remote back and uses it trap Yin, Yang, and Master Yo into a world where they have to abide by the rules of the sitcom realm! And Yang even knows a Corky that he never knew before! :lol: How funny is that?! And best of all, Yin and Yang use the built-in audience of the sitcom world to their advantage to deceive Carl into giving up his magical remote and giving it to Yin and Yang! So even when Carl makes the rules, he Still can't win at his own game! This show definitely shows that might isn't the only way to get things done. Sometimes, the most powerful weapon they have is their minds, and that's a really good lesson to remember in real life as well! That's why I love this show! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

    • In Situation Tragedy, Carl broke the fourth wall when he mentioned his actions in the previous episode.

    • Running gags in this episode: 1. Yang being clever at unexpected moments. 2. Corky McNerd continually appears at un-expected times. 3. The built in audience continually alternates between applauding or booing, depending on the actions that the various characters are doing.

    • This is the first time that any villain (in this case, Carl) has been the main villain in both episode segments in an episode.

    • It seems out of character for Yang to try to use fame to get a girl since he's with Lena now.

    • Carl finally gets the Magical Remote Control he used in 500 Channels of Doom fixed and returned to him, but he loses it to Yin and Yang.
