    This was a really funny episode. What makes this episode funny is the fact that "Yin Yang Yo" is a show that can take things that Have been done before and put a totally new twist on them! For instance, although many cartoons have already parodied it, "Yin Yang Yo" still make a parody of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" a lot of fun when the pretzel factory owner, Salty Mcsalterstein is actually the villain, Badfoot in disguise! And Master Yo actually does know how to get his students to have a good time, and in a surprising way to! Another great idea that has been done before, namely video game competitions between main characters of the series, also gets a brand new twist! When Yin and Yang decide to play against each other in a dancing video game, Carl makes it so they're not just playing each other, they're also playing to stay alive! Because Carl has ensured it the video game deity of the dancing game, the Dance Monkey, will refuse to let Yin and Yang stop dancing! It makes Yin and Yang realize there definitely Are times when its important to not compete Against each other, and instead work With each other to get out of a situation, and this is one of those times! So Yin and Yang use their brains And their dancing skills to stop Carl's evil plan to poison President Muffins, and actually both tie each other in the video game and are freed from Carl's spell! Yin and Yang both learn it's not important whether they win or lose a video game, its how they play the video game that counts! And Yin and Yang Definitely know how to play a video game! This is a great cartoon series for people of many tastes and ages to watch and enjoy! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • It has been learned that the teen serving President Muffin the pretzel is named Norman.

    • Yin and Yang are Seen in Hip-Hop Outfits, Irish Outfits, Mexican Outfits and Tango Outfits in this episode.

    • New Move Debut: Swaka Foo is a great burst of energy Master Yo uses a to break out of a giant pretzel, and it might have other uses as well.

    • Running gags in this episode: 1. Yin and Yang keep acting bored. 2. When Yin or Yang are about to say they're having fun, they change it to say that they're not. 3. Salty McSalterstein (Badfoot) keeps trying (in vain) to find a way to dispose of Master Yo and the Woo Foo Warriors. 4. Yin and Yang keep refusing to stop dancing against each other. 5. The Dance Monkey keeps commanding Yin and Yang to dance even though they don't want to.

    • Even though Yang hide The Lickin' Stick in his underwear drawer in Cat Smash Fever, its seen in the Woo Foo armory in this episode. Response: Master Yo would get suspicious if the Woo Foo Lickin' Stick was missing 24/7, so Yang probably only hides it whenever Master Yo isn't around.

  • QUOTES (5)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Yin refers to Carl as "Roach Coach", which is the name of one of the villains in The Powerpuff Girls cartoon series.

    • Singing In the Rain: The great 1950's Gene Kelly musical movie is referenced when Carl does his dance with an umbrella in the rain.

    • Master Yo: Grand Master Flash cards? / Master Yo is making a reference to hip-hop rap pioneer Grand Master Flash. His biggest hit was 1982's Don't Push Me (Cause I'm Close to the Edge).

    • Roadblasters: The arcade racing video game that Yin and Yang play is very similar to the 1987 arcade/console video game masterpiece, where the object of the game was to cross the finish line without crashing, running out of time, or running out of gas. It was revolutionary because it featured then-stunning 3-D Graphic scrolling capabilities.

    • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: The plot of a tour through a magical factory in Old Softie is a parody of the famous 1971 movie starring Gene Wilder and Jack Albertson or its 2005 remake Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    • Dance, Dance Devastation: This episdode segment is a pun/reference o the popular video game series of Dance Dance Revolution.
